I did my PF-9 a while back due to rust issues I was having with the stock blued slide and the ever constant florida heat. Since then I decided the P-3at would be done down the line. The start was a stock P-3at, black frame, blued slide. I started to get slight rusting on the slide after a couple of days without a treatment of CLP or Eezzox. The oil routine began to get tiresome so it was time to do a refinish. The most dramatic change was the removal of the front sight. I've never been fond of the small sights, even for a pocket gun, and after seeing a post on here by mtheo51 I decided that the addtion of a Hiviz fiber optic was in order. But I also wanted to go one step father and remove the front sight entirely to replace with the Hiviz. The entire slide was given a light melt job to remove all straight lines and corners. After the melt process was complete the slide was then prepped and coated in Duracoat Sniper Green and the barrel was also stripped and then cold blued. Lastly the Hivis sight was contoured and cold blued where bare steel was showing, then aligned and stuck on using "The Right Stuff" gasket maker. The rear sight was given an orange strip with Testors blaze orange and then the rear sight recess filled in with epoxy to protect the rear sight paint and give a truely snag free gun. And of course a couple family pictures with it's big brother: So now it's a matter of giving the Duracoat another week to fully cure and it will be off to the range for function testing.
