    I've looked all over for the serial numbers affected by the bad batch of slides. Does anyone have that range?

    Thanks!

    I would venture to say NO:
    If you have shot it 50 times and do not see a significant raised metal around hole (a little proud metal is OK),

    If you have shot it more than 300 times and the spring has not came out, or

    If you have installed the nylon washer ;)

    Have fired over 300 times...no metal, no spring loss, but no washer installed. Guess it is fine. Thanks

    My serial number is JRJ** its not in the list but it had the peening issue. Spring came out the front of the slide. Keltec has it now. If I was you I would buy some JFB washers to be on the safe side. 10 for $5. Here is the link.

    Do you really "need" a reason to buy another ;)

    "Do you really "need" a reason to buy another"

    With my wallet getting emptier every day I have to pace myself.
    How do you box the quotes?

    Click the Quote button in the upper right of the post you want to have the box around... you can delete the other stuff in the box irrelevant to your reply like I just did. The Reply button at the bottom of the whole page just puts your reply.

    Don't get another P3, get a PF9 or a P11. It's going to happen sooner or later, so you might as well get it over with. This has happened to most of us. I buy clothes the same way. If I find something I really like after I get home, I just buy one of every color.

    The link above did not work for the jfb washers, are the made just for this reason or where else can I get them?

    Has the spring come through the end or is it just starting to peen?
    If it is just starting then the washers prevent it from getting worse. If the spring has poked through you may want to get a new slide. It only happens on the ones that were machined too deep making the shoulder thin. It shouldn't cost you anything other than shipping.
    I do not know if anyone is still making the washers.
