Default Pachmayr Mag sleeves for Kahr MK9 on 3913

Check this out.
I bought a couple of these:
Pachmayr Black Rubber Full Stipple Pistol Mag Sleeves for Various Handguns | eBay

And sanded one down till it fit a 3904 magazine flush with a 3913.
Looks good but FEELS awesome!

YOu can see the one yet to be altered next to the fitted one. Very small amount needs to be removed from the top of the sleeve to fit in the pistol. They have a small set screw at the back to keep them in place.

Great Karma! Please include my name in your drawing.

Very nice. I will be getting a couple of those. Thanks for telling us! Regards 18DAI

Thanks brother. It makes it a very handy 9+1 pistol with either slide. If I can't find a 3904 (and I really can't) then this will have to be the ticket for now.
The mag pictured is an old 3904/909 mag that has windows up to eight rounds but I put the newer follower in them and they all hold 9 now. I have been using them with metal floorplates in my 39-2s, but they always looked a little wonky in those guns, sticking out just far enough to be noticeable. This is a finer purpose.

Add a little checkering to 'em and it'd almost look Stock

I think I DO in fact have a good set of files laying around here.
Next time I am watching old episodes of Longmire (The Story Of Iggy) I will checker the front strap of one of these and see how it feels. It's only nylon, so it won't take long. Should be done before Walt (Iggy) has his man.

Worked out well! Took a bit more tweaking than I thought it would but it fits pretty well. Iím also going to try to use this for an 8 rounder in my CS9.

Nice work. I have now done three of them this way. No checkering yet, but I will do that next.

SWEeeet...... on the 3915. Same upper you've pictured on your 6915 or did you do a second upper?????


LOL I use one of the uncommon steel base/flush fit 7rd magazines for concealed carry with my 3913NL with a "hicap" 8 round stock mag as backup.

Will you explain the follower change you made to increase the capacity.

Thanks,
Tom

All I did was grab the guts from newer 3906/3904/909 magazines (these are marked 9 rounds) and put them in my older 8-round 3904 mags. If utopia take the mags apart, both the new 3904 (9-round) and older 3904 (8-round) magazine bodies are identical with the exception of the witness hole for the 9th round. The spring and follower design changed slightly to accommodate the 9th round. Midway sells the followers and springs for these mags, and the only ones they seem to have are the "new" ones.

And BAM-BAM, no I did not do another 915 slide. In fact the only other one I have is sitting on my bench waiting for me to decide what to do with it. I want to cut it like the other one, and then send it off for melonite, but this expense is hard to justify. I have a 469 that it will eventually sit on. That is getting cut up also, but it's a story for another thread and another time.
