I ordered a comp from Kahr for my W.H. 28 along w/a new rear sight. The comp will not screw on my W.H. are the threads different or do I have a bad comp ? The Lyman type sight I got is a lot better quaility than the aluminum one that was on my 28 from W.H. the new Kahr sight is all metal. Any help would be appriciated.

Thanks

The comp on my Kahr is not threaded, just held in place with a roll pin.
You might want to check the new comp, I doubt that it has threads.

Kahr makes two types of compensator; threaded and slip fit. You need a threaded model for your WH 28. You will likely have to request such when ordering as it was a non listed item last I knew.

It is threaded, but it will not screw on the barrel. The old one does with no problem. The treads on the barrel look good & sharp. Maybe I need to get them to send me another one to try ?

Thanks
