:'( So sad. Every pocket gun deserves to be loved and cared for.rcmodel said:I always wondered how many people by one and a box of ammo, load the magazine, and put it in their sock drawer without even test firing it?
100 year old pocket guns turn up every so often with the original box of ammo still mostly intact.
That's normal. All three of the P3ATs I've owned (one 1st gen and two 2nd gens) exhibited this characteristic. Run 100+ rounds or so through a new set and you'll see the exact same thing. Shouldn't really matter, though, as they ride on the guide rod and are physically "straightened out". When lubing after cleaning, I rub a very, very thin film of Militec grease on the guide rod.nashvillemike said:Just today I put in a new ejector and changed out what I think may have been the problem all along, the recoil springs. The old inner spring was bent, it did about a 10-15 degree angle when held by itself.
If I were going to keep something in a sock drawer and carry it, it sure as hell wouldn't be a pocket 380 of any flavor! ;Drcmodel said:I always wondered how many people buy one and a box of ammo, load the magazine, and put it in their sock drawer without even test firing it?
I was at a gun show weekend before last and overheard a seller of antique stuff say he paid $1000 for a box of "period correct" original ammo to go with an old Colt revolver in a shadowbox display case.100 year old pocket guns turn up every so often with the original box of ammo still mostly intact.
