    Yep, that's what it cost to ship a pistol, overnight, which UPS and FedEx require. I don't think the distance makes much difference.

    I dont think they make/keep P40 barrels in stock, normally. Maybe they have a few, since they didnt tell you that. What I fear, is that you will get back a P11 (9 mm), we'll see. The good news is that it will likely have all new parts, grip/frame, slide, barrel, small parts, etc, utilizing the old aluminum block frame, which is legally the gun. The other good news is I bet they wont charge you a dime, so worst case scenario, you'll have a new P11 for $50. Come back to this thread and let us know what you get.

    I have a broken P-40 barrel and grip.
    My barrel broke length ways.
    I called KelTec and they said they don't make P-40 barrels anymore, of course this was a few years ago.
    If you get yours replaced I'm gonna give them a call to at least replace my barrel ...

    Yea, I posted what I did because I have seen P40s come back as P11s because they no longer made the P40 parts. This has been going on for years. But if they told you that, perhaps they have changed. Of course they could make the parts, if they want to.

    If I could find a P40 slide, I might just have to order one of those barrels.

    I just want them to make a special run of the .357SIG barrels for the P40, I know I'd buy one.

    Has Keltec returned your P40? Keep us informed as to how this turned out.

    Let us know how it shoots. I picked up a box of 155 gr. Silvertips for my P40, but have not yet shot them.

    Wow! Looks like everything is new except the frame. However, if they added a suffix to the old serial number, they must have changed the frame as well. Incredibly, it appears the service department just built you a brand new gun. Is it still 40 cal?

    I do believe this qualifies for the best KT service ever.

    You probably don't realize it but you lucked out big time.

    Yes, this is absolutely unheard of. They havent made P40 slides and barrels for decades. When they couldn't repair one, they simply replaced the P40, if you were the original purchaser,, with a P11. I find it particularly curious that they would start doing this, after discontinuing the P11. That would seem to indicate that they might continue making batches of P11 parts as well for the service department.

    I am amazed that you can say that with a straight face. ;)

    Personally I have always been willing to pay full original MSRP for an out of production firearm that is on my list. If it's something rare I've gone double to triple plus.

    Condition of course matters but for me cosmetics does not factor highly in my decisions.

    I know I am not normal.

    Now to my "guidance", I would not start at less than the original factory price when this model was introduced. What you let it go for is something you are on your own for.

    YMMV & JMNSHO of course.

    I have been watching a P40 on gunbroker. Looks like good condition, he has it listed at four fiddy. Evidently that is too high, since it has been relisted at least once.
    I'm also thinking of offloading mine, less than 2 boxes of ammo thru it since I bought it during the Clinton years. I also have the set of barrel, nickle slide, and magazine in 357 Sig - which also fits on a P11. I'll be listing on GB soon as well.

    I think the highest I've seen one go for on GunBroker is $350 [Edit: $399 as of 5/11/20]. Saw one sell in that price range over 5 years ago, with a .357SIG barrel included, and then another one more recently without any extras.

    Is the .357 version still the smallest/lightest .357SIG ever produced? Sometimes "bragging rights" are important when estimating value (especially if the buyer is looking for a "barbeque gun" ;^)...

    I would guess that both the 40 and 357 are the smallest, lightest offerings in those calibers.

    So did they do all this work for fee under warranty?
