    Is this a normal thing with the P3AT's? When I put the mag in and then pull the slide to chamber a round, sometimes it jams and the round does not want to chamber/feed....I notice that if I do it really fast and let the slide slam forward it chambers. I bought this from a friend with a low round count and he told me about it...maybe the feed ramp needs to be touched up? Would love to get a lil insight on this.

    Mine also only loads properly if I sling shot it. It is probably more normal than not. :)

    hi AirMech74, welcome to KTOG! this is quite normal for these little guns. you won't be getting near as much inertia from the light slide hand cycling as the guns gets from firing and the recoil. as long as it shoots ok, you should be good to go!

    Agreed, normal at 1st.

    Mine did that until about the 200 round mark. Never malfunctioned during firing. Now it seems to rack by hand just fine. :cool:
