    Last weekend I took it out after not shooting it for nearly a year. It had been carried a lot, and never lubed since being cleaned after the last time it was shot. It had numerous failures to extract. The extractor screw was also 1/8 turn or so loose.

    Well today I put 50 rounds through it without incident. I think lubrication and the slightly loose extractor was the problem last time out.

    I suppose I need to switch from oil to grease for carrying this thing.

    After lots of shooting multiple different P3ATs I will say that greasing the rails and hammer slide and keeping the rest of it just shy of dripping wet in oil/clp is critical to making them happy.

    Now I feel hypocritical because there is a very dry P3AT in my smartcarry as I type.
