Close to 3 years now and 115 has never escaped..
Only two years for me rubb-   but I use a dab of grease on the ejector to hold it in place.  AND a magnetic parts tray sits on the table when ever I clean or work on a gun.

But- for you sake RJ.....

it is held in place with a dab of grease. but it is no where to be found...parts tray and all. so I had to break into the spare parts box.

I think part 115 is the reason that I found KTOG. The night I got my 1st gen 3AT I disassembled to clean and lost the part; I did a search for P3AT to find out what it was and where it went. The search led me to KTOG. That was 4 years ago last month!

Yeah, I lost this part so many times, I decided to solve the problem once and for all by engraving a little something .....
;D
I was expecting you had engraved YOUR address on the ejector so when It shows up in FL, they would just mail it back ;D

I decided to clean the FP, FP channel and extractor for the 1st time Friday.

I finally found the extractor under the work bench ;D

On the bright side, it doesn't seem to matter whether it is in or out. I've shot the gun not even knowing the thing was missing and it worked fine. I didn't realize it till I got back later and found 115 on my work bench.

mine once fell into a large box of (at least 500) 9mm uncleaned brass... :-/
if this happens to you just stare into the brass for about an hour it will eventually
give its self away...  :eek: then DO NOT try to grap it with your fingers...they can sense
fingers reaching for them and they are quick and my hide in an empty case... and you may be staring
into that box again, sneak up on it with magnet.

i no longer disassemble over said box of of dirty brass.
i go to a seperate table magnetic parts holder and one of them green gun cleaning mats.
and i have also adopted the dap of grease. ;)

This might seem like a dumb question but have they changed the way that part #115 fits in the newer P3AT's?

I only ask because mine is stuck sooooo tight that I have never been able to move it much less remove it. Mind you, I have not pushed the issue as I am glad that it goes nowhere but it makes me wonder if this is a change or if I just have a VERY tight fitting one.

As a side note I have read that some guys use a dab of black RTV cement (high temp gasket maker, very good, I have used it for other semi-permanent installations) to keep 115 in line. I have not tried this as mine has never even wiggled but it seems like a fine idea seeing as my totally non-moving one seems to work fine.

Well now that I've read this thread and re-examined my P3AT....

I've come to the conclusion that I don't ever remember having part 115 on my gun. I purchased at a Gun Show, I'm sure after several hundred had gotten to fondle it. So I quess it is time to ask for one.
