Has anyone ever found a technique or method for smoothing out the sharp/rough edges of the P3AT trigger? I know that someone covered their trigger with a rubber hose or something but I was more interested in just smoothing it out and maybe removing the serrations.

Sandpaper works great. Most automotive parts stores sell packs that will go as fine as you walt. You could probably use a Dermel but would have to be careful with it.

I used some light filing, then 400 grit, then 600 grit. Best thing ever to happen to my P-3AT - no more sore fingertips!

Heavens, good to see you around norfdet!

Do you remove the trigger from the frame or just sand it in place? Thanks PG!
I sanded mine in place. Just be sure and unload the weapon before you begin. I just took a small square of 600 grit sandpaper, maybe 2x2 inches square and sanded it while I was watching TV one night. It won't take you very long at all.

I did it in place. Booger factor using a Dremel is too high IMO, and we aren't talking about an arduous task here. Besides, the sand/feel/sand/feel system works better with a snap cap and assembled pistol.

Neither my P-3AT nor PF-9 hurt my firnger anymore, but I am still planning on doing this on both. Would a fine finger nail file work and then some 600/800 grit sandpaper.

I've also noticed that some straighten the trigger a bit. I'm worried that I would not like it then have to break the gun down and buy another trigger.

Why do you feel it necessary to respond to every single thread on here? You just joined yesterday and already have a post count of 20. Are you trying to get to 25 as quickly as possible so you can visit the trading post or something. ????
