    I have field stripped and cleaned the P3AT 4 times now and have yet to see the ejector part #115. The gun fires and functions flawlessly now and ejects the spent brass up and back between 20 and 30 feet behind where I am shooting. I know I did not lose the part as I do all work over a cloth on my table. I am really thinking it never had this part number 115. Any help here would be appreciated. BTW I have a new pistol.

    Scratch this guys. I found the "missing" ejector. This was really bugging me so I did some searching around and found a clear photo of the ejector and it's location. Mine is in the gun and will not come out. At least not by pulling on it with my fingers. I suppose KT found a way to captivate it to keep people from losing it.

    That's good.
    Be careful, mine fell out when I least expected it to.
    Good thing I was in the house, found it on the floor beside me.

    That's news to me but who knows? Is it really fixed in there?

    Mine is a tight fit but it will come out if you really pull on it. However, I know these little buggers can't "sneak" off and hide. As such, I keep an eye on it and always disassemble on gun cleaning pad I bought years ago. As long as I do it on the mat, I don't lose the parts when they do come out. I know it's still possible but so far so good.

    Well I tried real hard to pull it out with my fingers and it never moved. I turned the frame upside down and tapped on it and the ejector still would not come out. I figured this was a good thing so I did not try to pry it out with any tools or anything. I will still keep an eye on it whenever I field strip the gun.

    Mine also has not moved , I have cleaned my p3at several times and it has never come out, should I try to take it out to clean it or should I leave well enough alone.

    When I tore mine apart the other day it wouldnt come out either. I just figured I would leave it in there since KT figured a way to keep it there since there were tons of advise about it falling out.
