Default RTK "Sweet Pea" Aluminum Trigger Upgrade for P3AT

I just purchased my hard chrome slide version of the P3AT. Having previously owned a Ruger LCP I was concerned about trigger bite from my new micro pistol. I found a nice trigger upgrade online from a man named RTK, called the "Sweet Pea" Aluminum Trigger. Works in the LCP and the P3AT. Adjusts for pre-travel and over-travel.

I will post pics when I install the new trigger in my P3AT for those who may be curious, or wanting to upgrade their triggers. Right now its reduced to parts waiting for a trigger transplant.

Welcome to KTOG.

Yeah, pics would be really nice to see. Does this man have a website to which you could direct us?

I will post pics when done. Right now she is all parts waiting for the trigger. I did paint the front sight nub and the rear sight notch in contrasting colors. Nail polish can do nice things on handguns.

I was surprised to discover that my hard chrome P3AT came with a metal guide rod from the Kel Tec factory. Very nice . I ordered a stronger guide rod spring and Sweet Pea Trigger kit from Galloway Precision. These parts are for the Ruger LCP but according to Eric from Galloway Precision, they will work just fine for the P3AT. Eric gave me a 20% discount to reward me for my research.

Website says nothing about the p3at. Are you sure it will work in the keltec?

Default Finished Trigger Transplant P3AT Sweet Pea Aluminum Trigger

Alright,

I successfully transplanted the Sweet Pea trigger from, www.gallowayprecision.com, in my Kel Tec P3AT. This aluminum trigger was made for the Ruger LCP, but as you can see it fits just fine into the KelTec P3AT. You can adjust the pre-travel and over-travel on your P3AT trigger. It give you the advantage of getting more finger over the trigger and no more trigger pinch. My P3AT is also sporting the Crimson Trace Laserguard.

Nice looking! I was just about to order one myself for R&D - you beat me to the punch. I had been watching the progress on this trigger, and another one they produce. Were there any instructions, or did you use the LCP YouTube video on the Galloway site for the install? Any trouble getting your factory trigger out? Did you use a Ruger LCP trigger pin through the top of the new trigger? (questions, questions...)

Very cool. Love the skeletonized look. Does it come in natural brushed metal as well?
