Default P3AT Trigger Shoe

I have/had the same complaint as others have posted - the trigger & guard really bit my finger. *I sanded both the trigger and the guard down and then bought the trigger shoe from Kel-Tec. *I had heard that the shoe does not fit the P3AT, but Kel-Tec specifically lists it for the pistol, so I decided to give it a try.

The shoe leaves a good bit to be desired for the price. *It fastens to the side of the trigger with two tiny set screws, which are supposed to "drill" into the trigger when tightened. *I found that one of them actually compressed and deformed the trigger, due to its small cross section, rather than biting into the trigger. *It certainly did not fit securely! * >

I took the shoe back off and drilled two tiny holes in the side of the trigger to receive the set screws, then super glued the shoe to the trigger and tightened the screws. *That seemed to help. *We'll see if it holds up.


Anyone else tried the shoe with their P-3AT?

Did you widen the hole in the grip, so you could pull the frame, if need be or do you keep an extra trigger & trigger pin in your parts box? Some good info here http://1bad69.com/keltec/triggershoe.htm

No, but I did think about this problem when I saw how the shoe fit. *;D

I carry my P3AT in a pocket Nemesis or a homemade OWB snap on holster. *The gun doesn't fit tight enough in either holster to cause the trigger to move when I holster the weapon, and I carry Condition 3 so far. *(Yes, I am familiar with the opinions on THAT subject!) * *I'll worry about removal of the entire trigger assembly when and if I face that need.

Since Kel-Tec offers this accessory for the P3AT, I have to wonder what their thinking is. *Should a AD/ND occur while holstering a P3AT equipped with a shoe they "recommend" or at least sell without disclaimer, it seems they might be liable.

Thanks for the link, Wilson. *Good info there.

The LHS trigger mod for P3AT will eliminate ALL trigger "bite" by greatly reducing the pressure against your trigger finger.
