Can't seem to find the answer to this ? using the search..can I order a new OD grip for my 1st gen P#AT from Kel-tec? I have a black grip now, but would like to have the option of changing things up...how difficult would it be to make the switch?
Best, Steve

The switch is fairly easy. You can order one with the mag catch and hammer block installed, which makes it a 5-10 minute operation for about $25. You might want them to send you the model with the hammer block, and ask for the new style one that just came out and will reset after a short stroked trigger.

You need to let them know in no uncertain terms you need a First Gen grip. Availability may or may not be an issue - let us know what you find out in that regard.

Perfect!  When you get the grip, follow THESE instructions to take the old one off and put the new one on.
Whoa! I hope I can figure this out lol! Thanks so much for the link, I will read it a dozen times or so and see if I think I can handle it! This is one of the best gun forums I have been part of by the way..
Best, Steve

i was under the impression that the new block DOES NOT RESET after a short forward stroke...
but only prevents short storking the trigger.  the trigger still has to come to a complete forward position
to RESET. am i wrong?

No, you are correct.  But so is PG.  

With the older style trigger if you short stroked it would lock up and you would have to actually rack the slide (at least partially) before you could get a reset.  With the newer style block if you short stroke it nothing will happen (including firing) but you can then fully release the trigger to get a reset without having to rack the slide.

damit i misread PG's post he did say AFTER a "short stroked trigger"
i misread it thinking it said it would reset after "a short stroke OF the trigger"

my bad.... :-[
