I am beginning to lose confidence in my P3AT. I had a hammer spring break about 3 months ago and returned to factory for replacement. Went to the range today and got about 10 light strikes and the hammer spring broke again. I doubt the pistol has had 200 rounds thru it since the trip to FL for the last new hammer spring. I really like the P3AT but my P32 is looking better in that it does not break hammer springs. I just wonder if the increased recoil of the .380 causes some of this problem. Anyone else had problems with hammer springs? The fact told me the last time it was unusual for it to break. I guess its send it on its way to FL!
