    Hi all-

    Had a few quirks while shooting my new P3AT a few weeks ago.  A couple of you were kind enough to make some suggestions.  When breaking the pistol down to check it over and fluff it a bit, I noticed the recoil springs were slightly bent.  This is after a total of 100 rounds fired.  I didn't notice the bend when initially cleaning it after purchase.

    I don't know if this is even a problem.  But I am curious about just what caused it.

    I've never seen this on any other pistols I've owned.  Should it be considered normal for the P3AT?

    Thanks in advance.

    Sorry, I just found this thread from not too long ago:

    No need to rehash the issue.  But thanks for answering!

    No problem. The only dumb question is the one you don't ask.
