Welcome Toni - we need more of your type around here. Both the "F" variety AND someone who jumps in with both feet!!!!!pocketauto said:It's like the rifling is very shallow and there are concentric rings cut in the metal all the way down the inside. that's the only way i can explain it. i can't take a picture of the inside of the barrel.
I was hoping Keltec will send me a new barrel in exchange so i don't have to ship the whole gun out.
Also the mag on the P11 rattles when loaded.
Welcome to KTOG Toni!pocketauto said:Hi,
....Yesterday I bought 3 new Kel-Tecs. a P11, P3AT, amd P32.
all 3 work great but the barrel on the P3AT has really crappy machining on the inside. Will Keltec take care of this?
A good squeeze on the mag somewhere between the 8th and 9th round with a pair of pliers will fix that. Just don't squeeze too hard all at once because you run the risk of splitting the mag wall. Squeeze and shake, squeeze and shake. Eventually the problem will go away.Also the mag on the P11 rattles when loaded.
pocketauto said:...as an aside: i purchased an elsie pea and experienced no problems whatsoever. the fit and finish are superb. i think it's time for keltec to step up to the plate.
the p3at works great now it's just a quality control thing and/or crappy machining. shouldn't buy 3 new guns and have issues with all 3 right off the bat. eh? :-*
