I am looking at an older used P3AT and the serial number starts with "HWM".

I want to find out if is is a "good" year. By the way what is a Good Year/Serial Number??

 I didn't see a link the the serial number information in the sticky above, can someone point me to the link.



thanks!  ;D

I'm no expert, but mine starts with HK and it operates just fine.
From what I have read, the one you are looking at is newer than mine.
Should be good to go, try the search tool.

What were the early problems?

Here is a post where the same question was asked.

the quick answer, there is no S#s to avoid (except possible the thin guide rod hole slides if you don't want to speend $0.25 to fix)

This might be what he's thinking, mine is a HK 2G one, and has the older hammer block.
Keltec sent me the new one free. That's the only new part for the early 2G ones, per Keltec.
