Have you checked your ammo? I have P-45 and I found that if the bullet is not seated deep enough in the case, the round will not chamber correctly. I re-load and on some bullets the "shoulders" come in contact with the rifleing and cause a very nasty jam.
'Mista Bukit': Since you reload, it sounds like you're not measuring cases. You should measure case length after it's sized the first time and trim to length as recommended in your reloading manual. The .45 ACP headspaces on the case mouth, so brass case length is critical. Also, after you seat the bullets, measure overall cartridge length (abbreviated "OAL" in most manuals). Again, if the bullet or the cartridge is too long (eg: bullet not seated deeply enough in the case), you're likely to encounter feeding/extraction problems.
So far as the Kahr PM9 goes, mine has been 100% since the first round, but mine was tuned up by Cylinder & Slide gunsmiths before I ever got it. +1 on the recommendation to clean and lube.
