Some of you may remember that a while back I had a couple of posts about my P3AT having a serious FTE issue. It finally got to where it couldn't go through a mag without at least one FTE! So, about 6 weeks ago, I sent my little friend back to Florida for some loving care. Just as I was beginning to get a little impatient, the UPS man brought me a package today! The work order sheet said that they had replaced both the slide and barrel, polished the feed ramp and test fired it. My P3AT had the parkerized finish on both the slide and the original barrel. The new slide is parked, but the barrel is just blued. (Maybe the rough finish on the original barrel was part of the problem??) Anyway, I'm glad to have my little friend back, and I can't wait to see how it shoots now. It'll probably be a while before I get a chance though...with the holidays coming up and all. But I will give an update as soon as I'm able.
