Hope you can help me.......seems after 100 rounds through this rifle....the spent casings don't like to eject fast enough while the new round is trying to chamber. thus the jamming as the new meets the old. Is this a commom problem with these or would a trip to a gunsmith be advisable. Thanks for any info you can give me.

Does it work fine for 100 rounds then start jamming or are you saying you only have a total of 100 rounds and now it's jamming?

Could be a few different problems.

The chambers on Kahrs are a little tight, opening it up to Mil. Spec. should help.

Could also be dirty ammo, give it a really good cleaning paying a little extra attention the chamber.

Try a different brand of ammo, "brass cases only"....

Keep it well oiled.

Warden,

Good point!

You also may want to check and clean the extractor, and look over the bolt receiver and frame for any signs of burrs that may be slowing things up a bit.
