    I let my brother barrow my gun for a few days to see how he liked it. I get it back, start to take it apart to clean it and see my ejector is missing. >:( I guess he tried to clean his self and lost it.

    Has any one ever lost theirs? How do go about getting another one?

    It's not as uncommon as you would think to lose one. Call Kel-Tec and they will send you one and so far they have been free.

    Call Kel-Tec

    1-800-515-9983 (M-F 8-4 EST)
    Ask for SERVICE not sales.

    Request the part(s) you want. They usually mail them out right away for free.

    Thanks.

    Do you think I should order any thing else besides the ejector?
    It's the 2nd gen.

    Yep, my was m.i.a. a few months ago. KT service fixed me up, no questions asked. Welcome to the lost ejector club. ;)

    2Slo.  As you can tell, you are now an OFFICIAL P3AT owner.

    One thing that is not made clear in the manual:  When the slide comes off you need to put that ejector into a high sided container immediately.  The lid off that gunscrubber spray can that you are using to clean out that baby works well.  In an effort to save over-making of parts, KT makes only 2 ejectors per P3AT.  They then used extremely experimental technology to build a homing instinct into them.  It is a good and a bad feature as it works for its intended purpose but it also requires diligence on the weapons owners to curtail the part's desire to run home to momma.  You can always call KT and ask for your second ejector but if you ask for more than one extra per weapon you are "taking" from someone else's backup.  As many many gun owners do nothing more than sit their weapon in the safe, that usually won't be a problem but it could become one some day.  If you actually need a replacement for your backup (when one runs home) you can beg/borrow/steal from the stash they have for others and then the stash will be replenished when your original one finds it's way home.  I have not seen any definitive studies but most believe the trip from the NW to Florida takes an errant ejector about 7 days; other parts of the country clearly vary.

    I maintain a littl gun grease on the ejector. Keeps it from falling out when disassembling

    Has anyone tried putting a small dab of super glue on the ejector to keep it from falling out. The part doesn't move when firing the gun, does it?
    I invariably turn the gun upside down everytime I clean it (after each trip to the range). I always swear I'll remember the next time to take it out first but I don't usually remember. I guess I'm a slow learner.
