    They acknowledged receiving mine on 2/16, and at the time said turn-around was running 6-8 weeks.

    Hello
    1st Time

    Bought a new p3at took it to the range for the first time. Shoot 1 mag. and the trigger spring broke. Sent it in for service 6+ weeks ago. Very >:( i could understand if i shoot 1000's of rounds through this gun but 6 come on. Called and asked for a supervisor and the guy said Rick will call you back. Still no call.

    Hey Alton

    Just got my p3at back yesterday. Took it to the range today to start breaking it. Worked great. Put 100 rounds through it with 2 FTF. I've read this normal through the break in stage.
    Good luck hope yours comes soon.

    PS. Does anyone know how many rounds it takes for it to be "broken in"

    Glad You got Your gun back.

    It takes about 600 rounds to brake in Your P3at

    100 - 200 rounds is sufficient for initial breakin although it may get a little smoother over time even beyond that.
