    Why does this little part come out of place so easily?
    Should it have some kind of retension click spring or something to hold it in better.

    Many of us have misplaced this part from time to time. Put a little gun grease on it and it will stay in place when you disassemble.

    And just so you know the legend has it: There are only two of them manufactured per each P3AT and they have a homing instinct. They strongly desire to return home to Florida. If you want, you can order your second one ahead of time so you will be ready to replace it. Once your original one makes it home you can ask KT to send it out to you again - sometimes they will even do it for free. Keep in mind that if you order more than one extra you might be taking it away from someone else.

    When you clean your weapon keep those critters caged including the use of the dab of grease mentioned above! Its also good to know that in an emergency you can usually do just fine without it for all but the last round in the mag.

    George, I think your still asleep - it's part # 115 a tiny ejector block on the inside rail
    after you remove the slide.
    and I will order an extra one because I will probly loose it in the grass or in my messy(gotta clean it up) garage.

    Most Kel-tec pistols work fine w/o an ejector as the upcoming round tends to knock out the empty. The last round may be an exception... or not. :-/

    I'm assuming you are referring to the little metal hand with the hook on it that grabs the rim of the shell to help unload the shell from the gun? That little hand and hook in my gun won't budge at all. The flat spring piece on the slide with the small screw in the rear is holding my ejector hand/hook in it's slot like it was cemented in there. Since it is in so tight and not falling out, I left it that way and haven't messed with it or tried to loosen it. That might be bad karma ....

    That would be the extractor...The hook should be free to slide back and forth about 0.020" with the leaf spring holding it tight.

    the ejector is that little harden steel piece that falls out of the aluminum frame (you might already lost it :eek:)

     I have used grease and evern Silicone Seal to hold Part #115 in. Now I use nothing at all. It WILL escape eventually. Gluing it down only delays the process--And makes you complacent--So when it finally gets loose it is halfway to Florida before you evern niotice it is gone.

     Better to be in the habit of removing THAT first, and locking it up as soon as slide is removed.

    I've never seen that part and I've had the gun apart twice for cleaning in the last week. I maybe have lost it already
    as I am really clueless as to what that part even looks like. Looks like I'll have to contact KelTec. Does anyone know off hand what that replacement part costs?

    It may still be there. On my gun it does not want to fall out (so far at least). Take a look.

    Oh, we can so fix that:

    Note left side of frame just forward of the hammer (not a continuous run without this piece) and the offending 115 to the right.  115 is immediately above (to the right in the photo) where it drops into the frame.  It's also worth noting that this is the proper orientation to insert it into the frame - and the 5th or 6th one you will try). I had to severely sedate it to get this picture otherwise it was going to run.  

  16. Good pic Scott.

    I have 3 P3AT's and I do not know how many times I have taken them apart.

    I have NEVER lost an ejector.

    I had read about this problem before I got my first 3AT and I ALWAYS take that part out as soon as the slide is off, and I ALWAYS clean and put grease on three edges of the ejector right before I put the slide back on.
