    IMPORTANT NOTICE- PLEASE READ IMMEDIATELY UPON RECEIPT


    Dear Kahr Arms Customer,

    Kahr's PM9 is one of our most reliable products for the concealed carry market. Nevertheless, in Kahr's pursuit towards continuous improvement, we are calling for the return of certain PM9 barrels for even greater reliability and safety.

    Kahr Arms is asking all Kahr customers to return the barrels only from certain serial numbers of the Kahr PM9 3" barrel polymer frame 9mm pistols in order to repair or replace barrels that were found to not properly feed some brands of hollow point ammunition, which under certain circumstances may be unsafe for the user.

    If you possess a Kahr PM9 3" barrel model within the range of the serial numbers noted below, please return the barrel only with a tag indicating the serial number of the gun. Barrels received will be repaired or replaced and shipped back within 7 business days. Please return the barrel and your name and address to:

    Kahr Arms
    130 Goddard Memorial Drive
    Worchester, MA 01603


    Thank you for cooperating with us in our pursuit of continuous improvement. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause you.
    If you have any questions or comments regarding this notice, please do not hesitate to contact David Konn, Director of Dealer Development at (561)656-1288.

    Sincerely,
    Frank Harris

    VP, Sales and Marketing

    That recall was back in 2004.

    It's not in effect anymore.

    PM9s in that serial number range were produced from 2002 till 2004

    How do you know if your barrel has already been fixed? I picked up a PM9 last year, used, but it falls within those serial #'s.
    Feeding has been flawless though.

    You would have to contact Kahr and ask if they did the recall work. If not insist that they send a pre-paid shipping box to send it in for service.

    They are really good about getting stuff turned around fast.

    Have one, called Kahr last year and they said some had "feeding" problem, to shot it with my carry ammo and if it hickuped send it back, otherwise they didn't want to see it. If it works don't fix it in other words. They insisted it was not a safety issue what ever that means...
