I recently became a Kel Tec owner through a trade last week. I traded a Springfield 1911 for a Kel Tec P3AT and a Kel Tec P-32. The P3AT was a daily carry gun for the guy I traded with and it showed a lot of bluing wear on the slide. Since I work at a rifle facility that coats firearms I decided to do the P3AT slide in Tungsten Grey and offset the color with black cocking serrations. It turned out really nice. I also redid the sights in bright orange and it helped very much at the range today. Of the two guns I like the P3AT better.
