I don’t think you’re going to need a washer on that P-3AT. Yours is about the thickness of mine around the guide rod hole. I have one that is a tiny bit thinner than the others but no peening to date.DanHfmn said:Cleaning mine today and checking for Peening, I took some pics and noticed that my guide rod hole does not appear to be tapered.
that gun was bought over a year ago, when they weren't having this problem. very evident to see the thickness of that slide over the ones they are shipping today. He won't have any problems with that slide as far as peening ....They all should be like that.adamsesq said:Based on ones I have seen I would NOT call that PARK'd slide "paper thin." I would call that one really thick compared to some I have seen. My bucks would say that one won't peen.
You can't tell from the picture whether it is tapered. The taper would be from the other side.
I figured that was the case but when you said "Both" and then showed two pics I wanted to clarify for anyone else who might be reading this.Nu_Agin_Shooter said:Scott- My post may have been confusing......I reposted Dans pic so that his NICE THICK SLIDE could be compared to my aper thin peening slide.
Dan, I'd just send the frame & grip assy. They have slide assemblies there if they need one. It would be a cold day before I let that flat milled slide out of my hands.Dan H. said:Think I'll have to send my slide in when I return the gun for trigger problem? I would want to make sure I get my slide back!
