    I remember a few years ago, the P3AT was having a peening issue on the slide at the guide rod. Has it been an issue or have they pretty much solved it.

    Not an issue , it seems it was just a bad batch of slides. It was documented pretty good as to what S # they were in. A search should find that thread...

    I had the issue with my J2Rxx. Nylon washer stopped or slowed progression of the peening until I finally got around to getting a new slide from Kel-Tec. No issues with the slide replacement. No issues with my JPMxx (though for non-related reason just now sports a new slide). I guess it is always possible for a CNC machine to be improperly set or maybe go out of tolerance and once again produce some bad slides. The batch would also have to slip by QC. I'm not a machinest, just guessing it could happen again.
