I took my brand new P3AT out to the range for the first time today. I decided that I was going to do almost no buff and polish and not grease yet. If it runs out of the box, it should do even better with a proper grease. All I did is manually cycle the slide about 100 times. I figured that would simulate some rounds and polish the slide some. I really like this little firecracker. I have one mag with a +1 on it and one stock. It is really tough to get more than 3 shots without fixing your grip with the stock mag, but I can send all 8 down range and accurate with the +1 installed. That is the first thing I'm ordering for the second mag. I shot 50 rounds of standard Remington ball .380 and 20 rounds of Speer Gold-Dot. The only thing I had any problem with is getting a round to feed once or twice when I was dropping the slide. This was just a technique problem. While shooting, no FTE or FTF. I'm loving this gun. It is now cleaned and properly greased and put away from now. The trigger is also really smooth and fairly light. Good enough to get all my shots inside a 1/3 scale IPSC target at 25 feet (about 5" square). I treated this thing like a Glock and it was as reliable as my Glocks. From all I hear about various problems, I wonder if I'm lucky. Heck of a pistol.
