    l need some help here...l filed my trigger down too far during the F@B and drove to Keltec
    to get a new one to put on today...the guy there said there was no way since l had already taken the pin
    out that l needed to bring the gun in and they had to use a special jig to put it in or the gun would fly apart

    Any Comments

    I didn't use a jig when I replaced mine, I do kinda remember wishing I had a third hand while I was doing it.

    If your close enough to drive there I would let them do it. If not it can be done alone, get two triggers though, I broke the first replacement when I drove the pin in to far.

    I’m sure glad I didn’t know that or I wouldn’t have installed silver triggers in most of my hard chrome P-3ATs.

    As with the frame pins, magazine release and aluminum frame, I had them DuraCoated gray. To make sure they exactly matched the gray grip, the gray grip was DuraCoated gray too :)

    Vanity also required three magazines be refinished with mag bodies in a Gun Kote silver color along with three different bottoms, standard, Bersa & NAA. The trigger is one of a batch of Kel-Tec triggers & trigger pins that were refinished in a custom mixed DuraCoat color to match the Kel-Tec had chrome slide. Truth be know, Gray Ghost is actually one of the wife’s dressed-up P-3ATs.

    Wilson – who’s not nearly as vain ::)
