Re: can I work *on my own p3at?
welcome to KTOG.
If you get some time, just search through this section and you should notice there is nothing on the P3 pistols that is taboo to tinker with. The ONLY part that the factory would need to replace would be the aliminum frame (part with serial number)
modifing slides/barrels/grips/trigger/catches/springs are are documented somewhere in these post. Taking the pistol completely apart for cleaning is performed by many. there should also be links to vids that show how (and what tricks) are needed to replace the most dificult item, the hammer block.
When you met me, have some courtesy, sympathy, and some taste.
Use all your well-learned politesse...
