It seems that I have seen a bunch of different numbers for the weight of the P3AT. Kel-Tec says that the P3AT weighs 8.3 oz (I know the 1st gen P3s are lighter). I have a gram scale that is rated to be within 1 %. On my scale, my P3AT weighs 256 grams (9.0 oz.) with an empty magazine not 8.3 oz (236 g) which is what Kel-Tec says the P3At weighs. With no magazine, it weighs 7.9 oz. Fully loaded with 7 rounds of Buffalo Bore Gold Dots it weighs 11.3 oz. The empty magazine weighs 1.1 oz. In any event, none of these weights correspond to 8.3 oz. I really don't think that the scale is wrong. I've tried weighing things of known weight and the scale is on. I think the the P3AT weight is closer to the Ruger LCP weight (9.4 oz.) than the factory numbers lead us to believe. (Actually, this makes sense since the LCP is essentially a direct copy of the P3 except for the slide stop.) Don't get me wrong...I'm not knocking the P3AT. I love the gun. It's fun to shoot and amazingly accurate for such a short barrel. Also, I really don't know why people need recoil pads and slip-ons etc. for this gun. I think that the P3 recoil is a little "brisk" but not at all unpleasant even with the BB +P rounds. Have any of you weighed your 2nd gen P3ATs and if so, what did you come up with? Once again, I'm not complaining! I think that 11.3 oz fully loaded is great. It's my primary carry gun now that it's hot in Arizona.
