I just picked up a first generation hard chrome P3AT today. It has barely been shot and is like new. Since it is first generation, I thought about passing on the deal, but it was hard chrome and I decided it needed a home. (mine) Did I make a good decision? Is the second generation really that much better than the first? In my humble opinion, the first generation looks better YMMV. Do you experts have any advice for what I should be looking for. I have only shot two mags through it. I had one failure to eject on the first mag. I think I limp wristed it. The second mag was perfect. Thanks for any input. I will post more after I have had time to shoot a couple of boxes through it. maybe this weekend.
