What should I be concerned about? Any suggested modifications, if I buy the gun?
I bought my first generation P3AT when they first came out, and I am still using it without any modifications (other than a good fluff and buff). Has never failed me in any way. I actually prefer it over the newer model as I like the lines better and the original style extactor. JMHO.
I've had a 1st gen for years. It has been totally reliable and no issues. I did the fluff&buff and ramp mod to minimize smileys and thats it. I shoot it better for some reason than 2nd gens...maybe the sights?
My first gen has been great. Just keep them clean and oiled.
Same here. The only mods I did was a rampectomy to help reduce smileys and the new style hammer block.
anyone got pics of the old vs new p3at? a guy i work with said he had on older p3 and when he shot it it bit his hand and sold it right after. I personally think it was his fault for not holding the pistol correctly but who knows. So whos got the pics?
glean and grease good. shoot it, then see if you need to do the f&b. nothing else.
Right here under FAQs & VIPs.
I like them. A generalization, I think, is that they tend to be a little more ammo-selective (FTF/FTE) and have a higher incidence of need for a rampectomy (smilies). They are a tad lighter, more aesthetically appealing (IMO), and I prefer their sights. A handful of people to my knowledge, have sent them in for service and gotten back a new 2nd gen gun.
