The Virginian Posted October 27, 2003 Report Share Posted October 27, 2003 I just got my 1927-A1 Thompson back from Kahr Arms and shot it at the range with very disappointing results. The gun jammed on almost every magazine I tried in it, including the factory mag. It tried to double feed ammo and jammed up after only a few shots. It also failed to eject on several occasions, but less frequently than the double feeding. I was using Winchester 230 grain ball and it should have fed with no problems. I also noticed that the so called fixed rear sight came loose again, but the screws didn't come out this time. I put red loctite on them and hopefully it will fix the problem. I am concerned about the unreliablity and Kahr Arms didn't do a very good job of fixing this gun. The cutts compensator and front sight are also loose, plus the gun's furniture also was loose after the range session. I am going to call Kahr Arms to tell them to send a FedEx yellow tag to come get this thing and fix it right. I did notice that the sharp edges around the ejection port and feed ramp and long burrs on it. I gently smoothed these over, but did not remove enough metal to change the original contours of the gun in the slightest. The ejector seems a bit loose and the magazine is a bit loose. Any suggestions as to what I should tell the guys up at Kahr to do? Should I send it to the guy in Colorado to remedy these maladies in my AO/Kahr semi-auto? Help!
