    Went to the LGS to pick up my virtual ammo order, some guy comes in with his P3AT. Wants to use them to send it back to Kel-Tec, because someone butchered it while trying to...INSTALL A BELT CLIP.

    Drove out the wrong pin apparently (care to guess which one)....

    Now does not work .. light primer strikes.

    so he is going to use the LGS to overnight it to KT for repair, at a cost of 40.00


    I would just order some parts to replace what I was using out of my parts box, and use the UPS center to ship it home to mama as is legal.

    The bad thing is that he is going to go around bad mouthing KT the whole time. The worse thing is that he (person who dun did the butchering at least) is probably not smart enough to even think how unsafe it will be to carry with the belt clip alone.

    Not KTs fault they screwed it up.
    So he will wait for 6-10 weeks (the current wait) for them to open it up and refuse to work on it?
    Dumb   :eek:
    I would appear that hiring a gunsmith to fix it would have been cheaper and more timely.

    For $29 he could just order a new grip with the hammer block properly installed and transfer his gun to that grip. For the price of the belt clip they'd probably install one on the grip too. Unless he stretched the hammer spring, the grip would probably get it running. For that matter, KT would probably send him a new hammer spring free, but then I think they only cost $4. $40 to ship it back and wait a few weeks? Not me. :-/

    While I agree about hiring the gun smith being cheaper and more timely, KT will NOT refuse to work on it. They will fix it no questions asked.

    The couple of conversations I have had with KT all began with "I was doing something stupid and screwed up the gun...." They have always sent me parts for free and told me to send it back if I can't fix it.

    Did that once. Did you offer to fix it for him, maybe for a box or two of ammo? Or send him to KTOG for some assistance.

    I'm really surprised you didn't whip out your virtual tool box and parts bin and then fixed it on the spot. He may of bought you some more virtual ammo. :)
