I bought my first Kel Tec yesterday and having read this forum for a while I was expecting a challenging afternoon at the range. As recommended by the shooters here I took the slide off and had a look inside. The barrel and chamber were a little dirty from the factory but everything else was clean and neat. I looked at it pretty hard with good light and a magnifying glass and I couldn’t see anything that seemed to need my help. I lubed it up with grease and oil in the appropriate places and went to shoot.

The first 100 rounds went without a problem. No “F’s” of any kind. I’m glad I don’t reload .380 because that gun throws the empties a long way. The only damage was a sore shooting hand. I’m happy with my .380 and if I do have a problem with it this is where I’ll come. I appreciate the good information here.

Welcome. Glad you had a good time. 100 rounds is a lot. I feel your pain, or at least remember how it felt. ;)

Now clean it , lube it, and shoot it some more. :D

Welcome exbpo, as far as "challenging" If you have read here much, you Know the greates problem experanced is the addiction and the desire to "get a nother".

So give it a month or so and you'll be picking out your next KT ;)

Don't lose the ejector when you clean it, keep the extractor spring bolt tight, lube, shoot, and enjoy!!!

Welcome.......I have told a few people that had "doubts" ...... KelTec has the P3AT product figured out and they now seem to be 100% out of the box. When I got mine a couple of years ago...if it had not been for this site I don't think I would have kept mine. I have probably 2,000 rds + through mine and it is 100%. I shoot a couple of mags each time I go to the range.
