Don't worry about the "fact" that the +1 extension was made for the P-32 and not the P-3AT -- the Bersa and NAA options were not made for the P-3AT either!
With due respect to yzguy, I am not sure that article is correct.  The springs in the two kits are different I think.  Why not just get the one the mfg makes for your pistol?  The other extensions mentioned are essentially just floorplates, but feeding and mag retention problems with them have been reported.

Not sure.  The info tends to stay in my brain for a long time, but the sources less so.  Especially if I saw it when I didn't even own a P-32.

I can tell you for a fact that the springs in my .380 6 rd mags are different than the ones in my .32 7 rd ones.  KT is very good at using the same parts across multiple lines, and I think it pretty likely there is a reason they have two separate part numbers for the .380 and .32 kits.

Can you fit all 7 rds in?  Let us know how it works for you at the range.  It may be that it will work fine for a while but will wear out quickly or something, so keep an eye on it.

will do!!! and yep all 7 rounds fit... i know that some have trouble getting number 7 in with the correct kit so maybe the spring is lighter...

taking a look a t the 32 and 380 stock springs they seem to have the same amount of coils...
however after a little experimenting i noticed the kit fit really tight on one of the three mags i have...
like it only wanted to go on about a quarter of the way... so i didint force it...

hope to get to the range sometime this week to see if it works...
the way i look at it its worth a shot and might get lucky and it will work...

whats wierd is i can remember reading a long while back when i was a lurker that somebody converted a p32 10 round mag int a 380 mag but cant find that anywhere...

I remember a thread where a guy used an NAA Mini mag extension to create a quasi-high cap P-3AT mag. I think it was 9 rds.
