    I replaced my P3AT factory springs with the heavier springs from Wolff. I did not replace the striker spring, only the recoil springs. When cocking by hand, a definite difference can be felt. However, my brass still flies over my head and hits the range overhang. I don't think I noticed them staying any closer than with the factory springs.

    I also had a trigger pin that was migrating out. I put blue loctite on it and, after 200 rounds, it is still in the same place.

    For a grip, I use a small Hogue over the top of their grip tape. I used the grip tape and fluid per their instructions and my grip has not moved one iota in 500 rounds.
    he gun is more controlable with the +1 floor plate than the six rounder. I can get faster follow up shots as I don't have to reposition the gun in my hand. I also notice that, with the six round mag, I sometimes short stroke the trigger. This never happens when I use the +1 mag.

    Hope this helps someone,

    Is KT selling in Maryland now? It wasn't long ago that they were not. Believe manufacturers have to provide a spent casing with the pistol don't they?

    The stock P3AT springs are in the 12-13 lb range so the Wolf P32 springs are really not much if any heavier.

    The P3AT and PF9 are on the handgun roster list. I bought mine used so that I didn't have to worry about the fired case. The fired case is only required with factory new guns made after 2002.

    in NYS, if the NEW gun does not come with casings,the state police take 2 shell casing samples at their barracks.

    then the handgun is sold.
