I'm considering getting something else to carrying and it will probably be a light weight .38 revolver. I haven't shot my P3AT in a couple of months but she stays in a holster (not in my pocket) so the weapon stays clean and it was clean when I had this trouble. I had a friend over to shoot Saturday afternoon and ran a full mag of self defense (Gold Dot) ammo through the P3. On the 4 round I had a failure to extract so I tried shooting some of my reloads and was getting failure to extracts on almost every other round. Went back to the self defense rounds and the same thing. I'm thinking my extractor spring (NOT MAGAZINE SPRING) is fatigued already and I only have at most ~400 rounds through it. It was working just fine the last time I shot it so there should be no reason this should have happened. The weapon stays loaded 24/7 and it stays clean. I checked the fired cases and they fall right out of the chamber every time so I know the cases are NOT getting stuck. I also checked the small screw that holds the extractor in and it was tight. LOCK TIGHT. I examined the P3 pretty thoroughly and every thing looked normal. I can cycle spend brass out of the weapon by hand so the extractor does have some tension on it but when you add the pressure from the remaining rounds in the mag it's a no go. Looks like a call to KELTEC is in order on Monday. This really bothers me for two reasons: * The weapon was shooting fine that last time I shot it so there is NO GOOD reason why this should have happened. Springs should not fatigue without being cycled. I have never had a failure to extract on this weapon before so this is a first. * Now I don't trust it and don't know that I ever will unless I can get a proper explanation by KELTEC on why this happened. Today (Sunday) I cleaned the barrel and lubed it up with the normal Rem-oil I always use. I also removed the extractor and checked it out to make sure it wasn't wore or bent etc... and all was ok. Same with the spring. I tried firing it again with the same problem (Failure to extract) Some times the rounds are stuck all the way in the chamber and sometimes they are partially extracted. This is NOT a cleaning issue. My chamber has been polished (NOT SANDED) with flitz metal polish to shine it up which minimizes friction between the brass and chamber. Smooth = less friction. Looks like a call to KELTEC is in order on Monday.
