I'm looking for a couple extra mags. Which cycle the best in the p3at?
Not sure anyone else makes them but KelTec. Added one of theirs and it works as well as the first one (6 round, the 9 round sounds flukey).
The factory mags are made by Mecgar. Stamped right on the mag. The 9 round mags work ok in my P3AT. Not too good for concealed carry. The gun is really a last resort weapon and at that point a couple of extra rounds are not much use IMO. I just use the 1 round extender for the stock mags
Granted, but when I picked one up at my local shooting shop it was in KelTec packaging. Can you buy it in any other way?
All Mecgar P3AT mags come from Kel-tec and are packaged accordingly. Kel-tec does sell them to other vendors. Promag is the only maker of aftermarket mags for the P3AT. They don't have a stellar reputation but it appears that their P3AT mags aren't too bad. However, I would only use them at the range.
Thanks for the help. Where is the cheapest place to get factory mags?
Cheaper than Dirt is about as cheap as anybody. Find them here:
Do a Google search. I buy mine from my LGS.
There are some aftermarket ones here and I'm sure you can get them else where but I recommend using factory mags.
I've been buying most of my mags from cdnn.
I bought a 10-round ProMag for my P3-AT last year. I hadn't had good luck with ProMags in the past, but this was before the 9-rnd factory mags were available, so I took a chance. Well for once, ProMag made a good one. I've used it extensively at the range and it has always worked flawlessly. It looks goofy sticking out of the mag well, but it actually works quite well in the hand when shooting.
Now I carry it as a spare, loaded with 10 Winchester flat-nose FMJ's, with my primary factory mag loaded with SD ammo, currently Critical Defense.
the factory mags are so cheap as it is why go any other route. Its not like we are talking about $60 HK mags here.
Agreed, surfrider. Now that the 9-rnd factory mags are widely available, that's the best bet. If anyone has their heart set on a 10-rnd though, I have had a good experience with mine, as stated above.
I use mine in w pocket holster so I'll probably just get some factory mags. Thanks for the help!
I agree with this also and, I found a vendor at one of the local gunshows who was selling 'em new in wrapper for $15.00/no tax. Bought all he had-4 of 'em.
