I emailed KelTec because I see a slight peening in the area of the recoil spring hole. I had heard about the problem and I was a bit concerned. The pistol only has about 200 rounds through it as I have a bunch of other guns to shoot. My wife used it as a carry piece for a while but is now using something else. So, you folks tell me---below is the response from KELTEC.....is this the kind of reply that makes you want to buy another product from them? "made in November, 2006 if springs hasn't come out the front, you do not have a problem, thanks"
