I only purchased the minimun amount of those washers and have now exhausted my supply. 16 members requested them due to slide peening.

However, Nu_Agin_Shooter has agreed to purchase a large quantity and distribute them to KTOGers.

For those few that received the washers, please post your impressions.

I have installed them in both my P3AT and P32 even though they had no peening. I think the benefits include;
it provides a smoother bushing for the slide,
keeps the springs seated better, and
allows to tune the spring compression for maximum compression

Re: Recoil rod guide bushing (Washers for Slide Pe

I should get washers before the end of this week, and be able to start sending them out next week.

I will post in the trading post section instructions, disclaimers, and misc info today or Wednesday am.

To cover cost of stamps, shipping, washers, envelopes etc. I will be asking $5 for 10 washers.  

Please do not ask for 3 washers for $2 or anything like that.  I like to keep it simple.

$5 = 10 washers.

Check the Trading Post Wednesday PM for my detailed post.

My P3AT functioned flawlessly before my spring/penning issues, after installing the washer JFB so kindly supplied to me, it's back to it's old reliable self. 500+ rounds so far without a single hitch and on inspecting the washer no apparent wear or increase in slide penning. :)

FWIW - I did not do any sanding on my washers. There is a very slight lip around the inner hole that JFB thinks is great for the spring to rest on. For me it was great to fill the little bit of the taper towards the slide so I put mine in "backwards."

I guess that probably means I am not distributing the forces as well as I could if I matched the taper of my slide 100%, but it is working great and you will have 9 more washers to play with if you want.

I have confidence that the washer mod at best is a permanent fix, and at worse will
delay the peening for a very long time. This weekend I’ll put another 50-100 rounds
through my baby, and I’ll post a picture so you can judge for yourself. Even if I get
a new slide, I’ll still put a washer in it. I put in the washer at the 400 round mark.

Very nice JFB.

If you promise not to shoot me with one of your Kel Tecs, I will steal this picture and use it in my post!
