    I have searched but can not come up with a straight answer. Are the P-3AT and Ruger LCP barrels interchangeable? One post will say they are and one will say they aren't. Does anyone know for sure (i.e. they actually tried it and not just heard it from someone). Thanks.

    I have both and was going to try it. Then I looked at the right side of both guns and the answer hit me. NO! Can't be done. The extractors are entirely different, therefore the barrels will be machined differently.

    Hi,

    I'd have to agree, it might have worked with a 1st Generation P3AT, but with the new style extractor I'd say its not doable on the 2nd generation one.

    Best Regards:

    Just curious, why would you want to? Switch barrels that is.
