Pictures Of The M1 Sbr
Posted 09 April 2005 - 03:42 PM
I started this project over a year and a half ago and it is finally over.... and I must say it was all well worth the wait. Basically, I started with a stock Kahr M1 16.5" semi auto carbine and got the approval to get it registered as a SBR. Then I sent it to PK last year for "the treatment". I think my requests were pretty well standard (rebluing, contouring, replacing the mag catch, wood, new butt plate, bolt hold open, etc.... too much to list) and PK delivered with a really stunning looking gun. To him - thank you. To anyone else considering getting some work done - I cannot express how satisified and pleased I am with the work he has done... and he is a hell of a nice guy to boot.
I will probably take it out the the range tomorrow and give it a test fire. For all the Kahr haters out there, I must admit that the gun did fire well out of the box before the work was done.
I did have Paul add Dave's EZ-Pull spring kit. It is clearly easier to pull than the stock springs, but not as smooth as pulling a full-auto M1 actuator... it isn't "pinky effort", but it will probably even get easier after I send a few hundred rounds through it.
Enjoy the pics.

Nice looking gun!
Aint it great when your ripping the box open to see it for the first time!?
My FA27 still draws a crowd at the range.
Another great job PK!
Congrats DC Chris; I know the pain of the wait. I waited over two years for my gun (from project start to final product), but it was worth it.

Nice Nice Nice !! Now the big problem for you is which gun should you take to the range? It's a tough choice I'm sure. As always PK did a wonderfulo job. Enjoy !!!
