I went to the indoor range yesterday with my new P3AT and my P-32 for a side by side comparison. Before going I'd spent some time here on KTOG looking for all the info I could on the P3AT. I disassembled the P3AT for lube and inspection and saw that the spring hole was drilled too deep and the guide rod hole only had about a .015-.020 land. I called Kel Tec customer service and told him that I had read on the board about peening and had seen the pictures of the failures. I was told that you couldn't tell if it was going to be a problem until I shot it. I fired 50 rounds of Magtec and 50 rounds of Atlanta Arms & Ammo without any failures of the P3AT. I did see that there was a burr beginning to form on the guide rod hole. I'd applied some white gunsight paint to the front sight and dabbed some red paint on the rear sight but I was unable to see it with the low light in the range. I've been carrying my P-32 with a +1 magazine for a few years and hadn't shot it much but was glad that I was at the range when I experienced rim lock. The magazine had been loaded forever with a high end ammo, not sure if they were Hydro Shocks or Gold Dots. I had a smattering of different ammo's to shoot so I put one in the pipe and added a round to the magazine. First shot then rim lock, I didn't know what had happened until the range owner saw that I was having a problem and explained that I had .32 rim lock. Overall I fired 50 rounds of varying types, both ball and HP without anymore failures. I found that the sights on the P3AT are almost nonexistent and and as small as they are the sights on the P-32 were easier see. I shot at 10 yards with both guns and put more holes in the paper with the P-32 because of the sights. I see now that I need more practice with both guns to get myself to point-n-shoot proficiency.
