My new PM-40 had a problem with jamming, not stove pipe. The first round jammed about 50% of the time during chambering of hollow points. FMJ round nose ammo worked OK. I called Kahr and they advised the chambering of first round using slide stop release only. Also found out the factory warranty is 2 years only:~( I complained enough that they sent me a new stronger (20 lb) recoil spring. Over 200 rounds but still occasionally jammed loading hollow points without using slide release (I refuse to carry a loaded round in chamber while firearm inside my waistband without manual safety)! Hornady critical defense (pointed tip) ammo works fine. No other issues with chambering or ejection since installing heavy recoil spring. Overall, great conceal carry firearm and accuracy getting better with breakin. Not a target pistol but shoots good at 15 yard line and closer. Wish S&W would make one like this in 40 S&W! S&W warranty is the best in the industry.
