Hi, I purchased a new 3AT a few weeks ago. Serial # JKDxx, $259.00 at the local gun shop. I decided to put a few down the pipe today to see how she handled. Before firing, I disassembled it, gave it a good cleaning, polished the feed ramp, greased the rails and lubed everything else. I also took the time to smooth out all of the sharp edges and "mould marks" on the ploy lower and magazine base plate. So today I set up a couple of water bottles at about 20-25ft and I must say that I was very impressed with the accuracy of this little semi-auto. I had no problem hitting the water bottles at that range. I missed the first shot, but after that The only time I missed (4 times total) is when I "jerked" in anticipation of the recoil. Not that the recoil was bad, but it "bit" my finger a few times and my hands were starting to hurt a little from the checkered grips. I only shot 28 rounds through it, but experienced no failures of any kind. I did have a hard time finding the brass afterwards though! ;D I was very impressed with the performance today, but I admit that I will have to sacrifice a couple hundred more rounds before I can make my mind up on if this will be a carry weapon or not. The grip pads and cover are on order, along with the "pinky" extension. Hopefully the addition of those will make for a much more user friendly firearm. Although 28 rounds probably isn't enough to report on, I thought I would share my initial enthusiasm for the little big gun with everyone Hopefully things will continue to go well because I would love to carry this thing both as a backup in the winter, and as the primary during the summer.
