Re: FAQs & VIPs (Very Important Posts)

fatman said:
...the most important function of a small pocket pistol is to remind us we are in a dangerous world and that we should be alert at all times and avoid risky situations where conflict might occur. If we have to draw the gun we are down to our last defensive line with a less than adequate weapon. In that case I doubt that we will be able to draw much comfort from having FMJ or JHP or interleaved ammo. We would probably be wishing we had thought more about how to avoid being there at all and less about the ammo we use.

These are some possible mechanical causes of Kel-Tec P-3AT malfunctions and their fixes in order of potential cause.
Note: (2G) = Second Generation model with external buttonhead screw.

Failure To Feed (FTFe).

1. Dirty or rough Chamber and/or Feed Ramp and/or Hood - Clean them and/or polish them.
2. Something obstructing the forward movement of the slide (dirt, burrs) - Clean, de-burr, lube.
3. Non-compatible ammo - Try other brands.
4. Bad recoil springs - Replace them.
5. Dirty Magazine - Clean it.
6. Bad Magazine Spring - Replace it.
7. Bad Magazine Follower - Replace it.
8. Bad Magazine Tube - Replace it.
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Failure To Fire (FTFi).

1. Failure to allow the trigger to fully reset - Allow the trigger to move fully forward after each shot.
2. Bad Ammo (commonly hard primers) - Try other brands.
3. Poor Lubrication - Lube it.
4. Firing Pin Spring Too Long - Replace it. (Only on older guns. New guns come with shorter springs.).
5. Firing Pin Jammed - This can happen if the extractor screw loosens, and while loose, the firing pin turns (the extractor screw also retains the firing pin). When the screw is re-tightened it can jam the firing pin because the screw is not in the retaining slot of the firing pin. (The screw must have loosened a lot for this to happen and you would probably have had a lot of FTEx's first).
6. Weak or Broken Hammer Spring - Replace it.
7. Dirty Firing Pin Channel - Clean it.
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Failure To Extract (FTEx).

1. Loose Extractor Spring Screw (External Button Head Screw) (2G) - Tighten it.
2. Dirty Extractor - Clean it.
3. Dirty or Rough Chamber - Clean it and/or polish it.
4. Non-compatible ammo - Try other brands.
5. Limp-wristing - Lock your wrist
6. Bad Extractor - Replace it.
7. Poor Slide Lube - Lube it.
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Failure To Eject (FTEj).

1. Loose Extractor Spring Screw (2G) - Tighten it.
2. Bad Extractor - Replace it.
3. Dirty or Rough Chamber - Clean it and/or polish it
4. Non-compatible ammo - Try other brands.
5. Limp-wristing - Lock your wrist
6. Bad or Missing Ejector (part #115) - Replace it.
7. Poor Slide Lube - Lube it.
8. Dirty Magazine - Clean it.
9. Bad Magazine Spring - Replace it.
