Metal Magazine follower for Kahr 9mm pistols.

In stock


Our upgraded magazine follower for all 9mm Kahr™ magazines is precision machined from aircraft grade 6061 Aluminum.  Then, it is hard anodized to military specifications to provide even more resistance to corrosion and wear.  It doesn’t get much tougher or more reliable than that.

Our follower was carefully designed and tested to help provide fault-free feeding in Kahr™ pistols.   Compatible with factory magazines and factory magazine springs as well as aftermarket springs from Wolff Gunsprings.

Advantages of the metal followers:

  • These metal followers will not break.  The aircraft grade aluminum followers are so strong, they are unbreakable in normal use in a pistol.  The factory followers are nylon and can be broken if the barrel strikes the follower after shooting the last round.  A broken follower can cause the pistol to malfunction.
  • Slide lock is more reliable with the metal followers.  The slide lock after the last round on a factory follower is controlled by a metal insert that is inserted in the factory molded part.  The face that locks back the slide on the metal followers is precision CNC machined in the same operation that forms the part.  There is no insert that can separate from the main body of the part.
  • Consistently smooth magazine operation.  Our follower slides smoothly in the magazine tube.  You can even press on the corner of it, and it will move smoothly down the tube.  It doesn’t catch or bind.  Smooth operation helps make your pistol feed consistently.
  • The shape of the follower is improved.  The metal follower has a profile that keeps the nose of the bullets up, aiding their travels up the feed ramp.  Hand racking of the pistol feeds rounds more consistently.
  • If you carry a extra magazine in your pocket the top round does not pop out like it does with the factory follower.

Our metal followers were designed to do exactly what the factory magazine follower do, but just do it better!

After being used in a Kahr pistol, the aluminum conforms to the tolerances that break plastic followers without doing any harm to the barrel or pistol.  That leaves a couple of “dinged” looking areas in the follower that are really just the part breaking in.  Here is more information on why aluminum is the material of choice for Kahr followers.

Fits Kahr™ factory magazines for: P9, PM9, CW9, CM9, MK9, T9, K9, E9,CT9, TP9,

    Hi. I found you on KahrTalk and ordered 4 of you Metal Magazine Followers. I dropped them in one 6 round, two 7 round, and one 8 round magazine. I took them to the range 01/10/16 and fired 400 rounds. They performed 100 percent. What a great upgrade. When I opened my magazines to exchange the followers 3 of the 4 factory plastic ones were broken. Thanks Guys. Jon W. (using them in a CW9 and CT9.) I’d give 10 stars if I could!

    I just replaced the fractured plastic followers in my K9
    with your metal upgrade. This is an excellent product.
    Attention Kahr: You should have Lakeline make this as
    standard equipment in the Kahr line of magazines.
    Shipping was swift as well. Thanks.

    Bought these to replace the factory plastic followers in my Kahr PM9. One was broken, but functioning 100%. The other, in the 7 round magazine, would not reliably feed the first round if fully loaded (yes, I always used the slide release). It would function fine if I only loaded 6 rounds.

    The lakeline aluminum followers fixed both problems. The first round feeds smoothly, even if you slowly ride the slide. And the aluminum follower is unlikely to break.

    Unfortunately, they created a new problem: about half of the time the slide locks back before feeding the last round (releasing the slide lock chambers the round without further issue). Putting a drop of oil where the slide lock contacts the follower will solve the problem for one magazine on the range, but if you don’t lube again before reloading it is likely to happen again so who knows how reliable this will be after sitting in a holster unused for 3 months.

    I have run ~200 rounds through to break-in the new followers. As the product note states, they do get some dings which I had hoped would give enough clearance to solve this last-round feed issue, but so far has not.

    Still, as far as feed failures go, I’d much rather have a last round feed issue than a first, especially when a quick swipe of the thumb fixes the malfunction.
