;D
Went to the store and ran across a new 3AT that had just come in for 250.00 so I had to pick it up.  Where have they been hiding???  Serial is still JAXXX.  I think I saw a post with a K?  ammo is getting scarce here too :'(  ended up buying Federal HS 17.00 for 50, I hope they work! ;D

Edited to add.....I just have to mention how disappointed I am in this new P3AT >:( I took it apart to clean up the feed ramp and do some polishing, when I realized that there were NO machine marks on the ramp or in the throat :-/ How much fun is that ??? Guess I'll have to lube it and shoot it! ;D

Well you think you are disappointed now, wait until it shoots just fine with nothing more to do to it.

I just picked one up myself. I had my choice between a brand new one (S/N J4JXX) and a slightly used one (S/N J1JXX) with a $40 difference in price. The guide rod hole on the used one was just about the thickness of a dime. The guide rod hole on the new one was paper thin (no exaggeration!) and the machining marks inside the slide were horrible.

I ended up going with the slightly used one with the better slide. I hope I chose well.

I agree! Kel-Tec is taking all the fun away. It’s just not right!

Wilson – who’s wondering if he wasted him money on that ACME Gunsmithing course :-/


PS how much can I get for a slightly used Dremel in a Garage Sell

You did well! Isn't it nice to know what to look for! :)

And, Isn't it nice to know that Kel-Tec will stand behind this gun no matter what! :)
