Hello all, Just got a new P-3AT in hard chrome. Cleaned and lubed it tonight and noticed this hole just behind the rear sight. We have 3 of these in the family and this is the only one with it. Not sure if it is a concern or not? I also had a small piece of plastic fall out of the mag well that looks like it came from the Mag release catch, but I read on here that part takes a beating, didn't expect that to happen so soon. Read some older posts that someone on this forum sells a metal one? Does Kel-tec make one yet?
Thanks in advance,
Gerry

Thanks for the replies. More bad news. Went to the range with the gun in this post and a Freedom P3AT that had 200 rounds through it. Mine right out of the box after 2 mags had FTE's, sometimes multiple ones in 1 magazine. Mostly did it when the magazine was topped off after chambering a round. The Freedom one started doing this last trip to the range. I noticed that both guns extractor springs had worked loose, my brand new one only after 2 magazines. Ill have to do the loc tite. Cant believe they leave the factory this way. I emailed kel tec and asked for an address where I can send the pic of the hole in the slide, so I wont bother shooting it again until I get an answer on that. The machining in that area is cut much deeper than a normal slide.
