Default pearce grip failure

Just got back from the range, and Man am I dissapointed in my Pearce Grip extentions for my Kahr p380.

Both extentions sheared right off after only 15-20 rounds each!
Magazine springs popped out into the dirt, and the worst part of it was that I hadn't brought the original steel hardware with me to the range......so I saved myself a lot of money on ammo....
Shot an angry Email off to Pearce, but I guess I can't expect much for $15! I Would have paid more for something that wasn't a piece of C$#P.
Just be warned, that if you have Pearce grip extensions , you might want to rethink how important they are to you, and what would happen if they failed when you needed the weapon.

I havent had problems with them on my glocks, but that sounds like a major design flaw for the kahr version

Are you sure the gun wasn't jumping in your hand like a cricket and that's what broke the extensions?

just kidding, sorry about the grips.... see you tomorrow..

I just googled 'Pearce Grip extension failure', and got a bunch of hits on it. Apparently, this is not a new problem. I have one on my G-27, but after reading some of that, it may be coming off.

First thing I did when I had my kahr 380 was order stock metal plates for my other mags that came from the po with those.

I have not had any experience with the other models of grips, ....but the .380 version only has a 1mm x 1mm plastic rail to hold on to the magazine.
The connection would HAVE to be made out of steel to survive the abuse it needs to take.
