    Well I got beat out on a hard chrome with a gray frame, and the next best deal I can find is a blued with a green frame.
    Does anyone know if the frame can be changed to a less hideous color?
    I don't mean just 'painting' it with a sharpie. That, IMHO, is like putting duct tape on a $100,000 hot rod. I mean a DECENT permanent color change.
    I know....SEARCH! I did, with several options, and can't find a solution. :-/
    FLAMES ON!!! ;D

    You can order a brand new grip in any color your little heart desires direct from Kel-Tec.

    Thanks, Pedro.
    If I had the $$$ to spare, I'd hold out for the one I really want: Hard chrome with gray grip.
    Trying to save a few ducats.....

    My P3AT is navy blue / hard chrome. i must say it's probably my favorite combo. gray / hard chrome is really nice too. :)

    Sorry, This little mouse gun isn't going anywhere. Have you tried Gun Broker? I found mine at a gun shop all the way in Wyoming.

    BTW-  You can use dura coat or some of the other spray and bake type gun specific paints on the grip.

    Worst case scenario if you dopn't like it is you send Kel-Tec a few buck to buy a new grip.

    And the Navy/Chromed-  Only available through a wholesaler called MidSouth Distributors.  Ask you local shop if they can buy from MidSouth, and then palce an order and HOPE.

    You can also dye a grip, with Rit dye for instance, but I can't think of any good colors to combine with the standard green (olive drab) grip.

    Navy / hard chrome units are only sold by Sports South distributor to their dealers ;
    http://www.internetguncatalog.com/

    True as long as those colors are black, gray or green ,no others sold (including the navy blue, those are special order for sports south only)
