I recently bought a new P3AT to supplement my EDC options in the warm weather and finally had the chance to begin the break-in process this weekend.  I ran a box of S&B FMJ, a box of FMJ hand loads from a gun show, and a box of GDHP's through it and was really happy with the performance and the accuracy.

I was able to keep 4 inch groups all day at 21 feet with all the ammo I shot through it.  I did experience 2 FTE with the hand loads but otherwise the gun was 100%.

When I got home and cleaned it I noticed that I was able to loosen the hex head screw that holds the extractor spring/clip in place pretty easily so I removed it, put a small amount of blue loc-tite on it, and tightened it back down.

Overall, I am very happy with this gun and its performance!

Hi,

I see this is only your 3rd post... WELCOME TO KTOG!

Thanks for the range report. The fact that you found the loose screw suggests to me you'll have no problems getting your P3AT to be 100% reliable.

A reliable P3AT is a great carry gun as a primary if need be and as a BUG when something bigger is being carried as your primary.


Take care...

Congrat's...My P3AT has surprised me with it's accuracy...I stick with the FMJ's for penetration purposes..
I alternate JHP,FMJ,JHP etc... I figure I'm covered that way. Congrats on the 3AT I bought mine too for another piece to the concealed puzzle and wound up carrying it almost all the time either in a smartcarry, or on the ankle as a BUG with one of my Glocks IWB. Awesome little firearm.

No, the hand loads were from Frankford Arsenal and were 100gr FMJ with 2.7 gr of Bullseye powder. I suspect the ammo is fine and my FTE's were due to the loose extractor screw. I have more of the ammo and will try again at the range now that I secured the screw with blue loc-tite.

Thanks .... Mike
