I sold my 3pat 1st generation to a buddy of mine and just purchased a 3pat 2nd generation. The 1st gen had been a good shooter after fluff and buff and I carried it quite frequently. I can say that I am real happy with the 2nd generation. I did the fluff and buff and ran 100 rounds through it yesterday. Not one single issue. It ran flawlessly. I am going to add a Hogue grip sleeve so I can get another 200 to 300 rounds throught it to finish break in. I also do not see any peening issues yet. I'll keep my fingers crossed on that one.
