    Been lurking on the KTOG for a few weeks and just wanted to say hello to everyone and thanks for all the great advise!!  Purchased two new P3's over the last week and finally got a chance to test them.  Two of the local gun dealers I spoke with just recommended I thoroughly clean with BreakFree CLP, No FNB or break-in slide grease. Shot 100 rounds through each gun (50 Magtech Blue and 50 Winchester White) with no problems.  Had what I though was one failure to fire, but it was operator error - wasn't used to the long trigger pull.  Overall very satisfied with my purchase.  Thanks again KTOG, what a great resource for newbies like me.[​IMG]

    Very pretty, sir -- bike tire grips? How do you like them?

    Just wanted to give the grips a little more girth.  You know when your only packin 3 inches, it's girth over length  ;).  I put two layers of bike tube under 1 aglaser grip (which is bike tube also).  Can't tell you if it's any better than a naked grip, but seems to work for me.

    You did well in adding the grips and finger extensions - they make a difference, especially at the range.

    Love that Chrome and Blue combo.

    Glad the first run went well - clean-shoot-lube-repeat...

    It's not an inner tube. It is a industrial conveyor roller cover tube used in the frozen food handling industry. We make the rollers and cut this material to length for them. It is a different composition....Please get your facts straight before posting.

    I understand your concern. But perhaps a little grace for the new guy.

    No offense to the aglaser product, I just can't tell the difference. My mountain bike inner tube is the same diameter and thickness, and has 5 ridges which line up identically to the conveyor tube. Your product is cut perfectly to fit the p3at's grip, and would recommend to all. :)

    Your response shows class in the face of adversity, and also some good knowledge! Clean, lube, shoot, and repeat! Very nice looking weapons, as well!
