My Kahr Mk9 is usually extremely reliable. However, I have had 2 recent jams in which the empty casing did not clear the ejection port. These were not stove pipe jams. In both cases, the empty case was blown straight back and was caught between the barell and the slide parallel to the barrel.
Both jams occurred with Federal 9BP standard pressure 115 gr. jhp loads. This is the most reliable round I've used in other 9mm pistols. I'm wondering if the Kahrs prefer higher pressure rounds as I've never had such problems with +P. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Kahr's like +P's I heard
Jeff....I don't have a Kahr (see my post above) , but I just saw the comment , maybe on this forum , that Kahrs love +P ammo . Can't prove it by me but I am watching all range reports with interest . Thanks for your report....Tom

Quote from Massad Ayoob
Jeff....I found this on www.kahr.com . It's a quote from Ayoob in a write up for "Guns" magazine . It seems as if everything He has written about Kahrs has been positive .
"They want controllability. NYPD qualifies with duty loads, and at this writing they've just announced that they're going to the hot + P + 9mm Remington hollowpoint like the Secret Service uses. This can damage some guns, and render some too violent in recoil to be controlled in certain hands. The Kahr was expressly designed by its inventor Justin Moon to not only work with, but thrive on, the hot Cor-Bon round that duplicates these ballistics for civilian purchasers. With a low bore axis, recoil-absorbing spring system and extremely ergonomic grip design, the Kahr allows the shooter to handle the kick as easily as the hardware itself does. And, remember, you've got to qualify: These guns are extremely accurate and easy to shoot well, in either caliber. Night sights are available as a factory option, ordered new or by sending your own gun in."
You can find it under product reviews ....Tom
