what is the latest serial numbers shipping from the factory for the 3AT's I want to make sure I am getting a recent one NIB

I found this using search "P3AT, serial # "JCQxx", was made on May 15, 2007" now assuming 1000/week for 33 weeks, so just add 33,000 to that one (JNExx)

Here you go, you can calculate how many were made since the one know. assuming 1000/week has been the average production JCQ00=>43,200 The Kel-Tec serial numbers are a modified 34base. The KT system doesn't use "I" and "O" since they would be confussed with "1" and "0". Also the two least significant places are base 10. the first charector disingates what model "J" for P3AT around fall 2006 "P" for PLR16 "A" for P11 "R" for PF9 "C" for P32 [table] [tr][td] 1[/td] [td] 2[/td] [td] 3[/td] [td] 4[/td] [td] 5[/td] [td] 6[/td] [td] 7[/td] [td] 8[/td] [td] 9[/td] [td] A[/td] [td] B[/td] [/tr] [tr][td] 01[/td] [td] 02[/td] [td] 03[/td] [td] 04[/td] [td] 05[/td] [td] 06[/td] [td] 07[/td] [td] 08[/td] [td] 09[/td] [td]10[/td] [td]11[/td] [/tr] [/table] [table] [tr][td]C[/td] [td]D[/td] [td]E[/td] [td]F[/td] [td]G[/td] [td]H[/td] [td]J[/td] [td]K[/td] [td]L[/td] [td]M[/td] [td]N[/td] [/tr] [tr][td]12[/td] [td]13[/td] [td]14[/td] [td]15[/td] [td]16[/td] [td]17[/td] [td]18[/td] [td]19[/td] [td]20[/td] [td]21[/td] [td]22[/td] [/tr] [/table] [table] [tr][td]P[/td] [td]Q[/td] [td]R[/td] [td]S[/td] [td]T[/td] [td]U[/td] [td]V[/td] [td]W[/td] [td]X[/td] [td]Y[/td] [td]Z[/td] [/tr] [tr][td]23[/td] [td]24[/td] [td]25[/td] [td]26[/td] [td]27[/td] [td]28[/td] [td]29[/td] [td]30[/td] [td]31[/td] [td]32[/td] [td]33[/td] [/tr] [/table] [table] [tr][td]H[/td][td]Z[/td][td]Z[/td] [td]9[/td] [td]9[/td] [td]totals[/td] [/tr] [tr][td] [/td][td]___[/td][td] [/td] [td] [/td] [td]X 3400[/td] [td]______[/td] [/tr] [tr][td] [/td][td] [/td][td]___[/td] [td] [/td] [td]X 100[/td] [td]______[/td] [/tr] [tr][td] [/td][td] [/td][td][/td] [td]___[/td] [td]X 10[/td] [td]______[/td] [/tr] [tr][td] [/td][td] [/td][td] [/td] [td] [/td] [td]___[/td] [td]______[/td] [/tr] [tr][td] [/td][td] [/td][td] [/td] [td] [/td]SUM [td]sum[/td] [td]______[/td] [/tr] [/table]

That would be the 14th one made. Did you buy it around June or so of 2003? Are you sure the serial number is right? You put "014??" Why did you put the question marks?

I just picked up a P3AT on Dec 29th and it has a serial of JM###. Don't know of the exact manufacturing date yet, but I'm going to call KT and see if they will let me know.

I got one right after Christmas, it was JJ7xx. I guess mine sat around a month or so. Still love it! Frank

Mr alamo Thank you for the info. The no. is 014## to me the firearm would have been made In week no. 2. I did buy it on (1-11-04).I did hope it was one of the first and it is . Geo.

JFB... I love the way you do the numbers! The rest of us numerically impaired non wizards should probably call Kel-Tec and ask the sweet lady that answers the phone if she can tell us the birthday of our guns! If you want a " newer gun date" (Although I am not sure why) just ask that same sweet lady what serial numbers they were building yesterday. I really does not matter what day you call her, still just say "What numbers were made YESTERDAY."

I see what you mean. We usually use "X"s to denote numbers we're not giving out. For example, my 1G P-3AT is 0027XX. I got it in Sept. or Oct. of 2003. It was the 2,7XXth P-3AT made. The serial numbers are no longer consecutive unfortunately. If yours is 014XX then it would have been made in the summer of 2003.
