I just picked up a second hand P3AT to be a backup to my daily carry P3AT. This new gun appears unfired, but has a much looser slide to frame fit than my first one. If you lift up on the muzzle end of the slide, it lifts away just slightly from the frame. My first one does not exhibit this tendency.

I will have to test fire the pistol shortly, but until then I am wondering if anyone else has noticed this condition.

At the muzzle end of my slide, there is 0.035" gap between slide and end of grip.
I can push down on slide's muzzle until it touches the end of the grip.

The hammer end of the slide stays the same WITH a loaded mag. the "pivot" seems to be at the hammer end of the slide

WITHOUT a mag, the hammer end will also go up and down the frame/slide rail clearance (~0.012"). the slide now seems to pivot about the pin
But the muzzle end of my muzzle does not lift?

I popped out the magazine and I also see the pivoting you are describing. Guess it is normal.

This one has serial # JJxxx so not sure when it was made.
