    So after all my problems getting my P3AT fixed at the factory they ended up sending me a new one. I went to the range last night and put around 100 various rounds through it and didn't have any problems at all. It performed perfectly with Prvi Partizans, Blazer Brass, Aguila H.P., Remington 88g. H.P. and 80g. DPX's(the ammo I carry). So after my 11 week fiasco I ended up with a good gun it seems. The only thing I may end up doing to it is use a little chrome polish on the feed ramp to get a mirror finish...otherwise it is staying as the factory made it. I'm really glad to get a back to carrying my P3AT!

    I kind of followed this saga for a little bit and it's good to see that KT made it right after all that. From the trend I see with this sort of thing KT will try to repair a gun one, maybe two times, then replace the whole thing because it may be a lemon. I highly doubt that your new gun will have any problems at all since it probably already had a F&B done to it before leaving the factory. They really try to do right by their customers and bend over backwards sometimes.
    Just remember to polish in the direction the bullet will travel and you should have no problems at all.

    I'm glad to hear that KT is standing behind their product. Sounds like you got a good one this time and will shoot happily ever after!! Good Luck to you !!

    Sorry you had problems in the first place but glad to read that Kel-Tec did the right thing by replacing with a new gun.

    Take care...

    I'm glad this one is right. My P3AT has never had a single failure. I suspect this one will be jut as good for you.

    All I did to mine was to polish the feed ramp and outside of the barrel. I used Dremel brand polishing compound with my generic "Dremel." My barrel and feed ramp are as shiny as chrome. I think doing so helps smooth out the action as it cycles each round but that's just my opinion.

    Shoot, clean, lube, repeat, and enjoy.
