trying my first post with a picture of my finished semi kahr m1 sbr. I know it isn't a FA but my pocket can afford this one while the FA is out of reach right now. It runs like a champ on live ammo and is accurate. Just need to do the mag catch conversion so I can use FA mags.

ps how do I make the picture smaller?

Thundercat97,

Nice picture! Might be a good one for Mike's calendar.

Mike,

Speaking of the calendar, is it still in the works?

Thundercat97,

That's a nice looking gun. wink.gif

I like the "barrel band" that helps stablize the front grip. Did it come with the gun or did you add it?

Is this a Kahr manufactured SBR, or did you have converted after the purchase of the gun?

the band was added by me... it was a long barrel semi (that I have owned for some years but never really used) that I had converted to a SBR once I got back my form 1 approved. Only one issue.. the rear sight screws always come loose!! Even if I put thread lock on them... any suggestions? Oh, it is on the hood of 42 Dodge WC52

Cat97, nice looking gun.

Calender is still in the works. Still working on getting some more maodels for the shots with different guns. All will be real live machineguns.

Nice looking gun! I really liked the way you composed your picture. It looks like the real deal, especially with the barrel band. As for the rear sight screws coming loose, that seems to be a common problem with Kahrs. I think many members feel it is better to send it out and have the sight riveted, rather than using locktite or other quick fix.
