Grifted from another post on this forum.

Kel-Tec serial numbers use a modified base 34 system. *The KT system doesn't use "I" and "O" since they would be confussed with "1" and "0". *Also, the two least significant places (the last two digits) are regular base 10 numbers.

Here is a chart to convert to numerical (10base).
The first character designates the model.
"H" for P3AT, then "J" around fall 2006, and then "K" around fall 2008
"P" for PLR16
"A" for P11
"R" for PF9, then "S" a year or two ago
"C" for P32
"T" for the RFB
"W" for the PMR-30
"X" for the KSG
"Z" for the RDB
Code:
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 A B
01 02 03 04 05 06 07 08 09 10 11
Code:
C D E F G H J K L M N
12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22
Code:
P Q R S T U V W X Y Z
23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33
Code:
H Z Z 9 9 totals
___ X 3400 ______
___ X 100 ______
___ X 10 ______
___ ______
SUM ______
P3AT S# of HZZ99 equals 115,599. *After this one, the first "H" became a "J", then a "K"

The RDB Serial Number thread:

It would be nice if someone with more technical knowledge on the RDB than I would make an "RDB - The Basics" thread.

and Welcome to the forum! :welcome:

this rifle is so new and scarce, more scarce than new, there isn't a HUUGE (Trump HUUUUUGE) amount of contribution.
You can go through everything in an evening or two. Follow my posts as I try to share everything, right or wrong.
But you do want to check your Op-rod spring housing for that weld and the dreaded drifting ejector pin.
KT's good at providing the upgraded parts.
