I know you full auto guys won't care much, but I did get Kahr to fix my 1927 A1 right this time. The gun functioned flawlessly until the second to last magazine and I got 1 double feed with Winchester white box 230 grain bullet ammo. I wasn't holding the gun very firmly because I was getting tired after shooting about 500 rounds in one session. The accuracy was amazing and most groups were 2" or less. I had fun finallly with this gun and it seems like it is on the road to being a keeper. biggrin.gif

Well you've broken it in a bit haven't you? tongue.gif Glad they fixed it. I would check your sight screws, unless you've already done something with them. A lot of them tend to loosen if not set with loctite or such.

Glad to here that they got running good for you.

The 27A1 is fun to shoot.

I would imagine that your trigger finger was aching after 500 rounds! huh.gif

Junglewalk, That is sooo sneaky. Hee!
Virginian, Congrats on getting a nice reliable 27. The accuracy was one of the things that surprised me, when I first got my 27 going.

A guy at the range that has a full auto M1 said he could not believe how accurate it was either. I am glad that this thing is finally holding together and is able to shoot as well as it has. The trigger seemed to smooth out a bit as I shot the gun more and more and I wonder if that had to do with the gun heating up as much as it did. I will try to take it out again next weekend to see if it still holds together.
