I've had a P3-AT for a while now, but was not happy with its reliability. I was not confident in it enough to carry it concealed. I am no craftsman, but I decided to do a fluff & buff on it. I didn't do the whole routine. I just polished the feed ramp and the barrel underlug. I spent about 2 hours in front of the tv with 400 and then 600 grit. The results were remarkable. My last 2 trips to the range have been very successful. I've put over a hundred rounds through it with no failures of any kind. I've used over a box of ball and a box of hollow points and it functions flawlessly. Now I'm going to have to work on the trigger and grips. It's kind of a painful little rascal to shoot. Out to 7 yards, it's accurate enough in rapid fire to do some pretty serious damage. If I'd have known it was going to be that easy, I would have kept my PF-9. It also had a feeding problem and I got tired of fooling with it at the range.

Get yourself a set of finger extensions (You can do a search of this site for info) there are 2 kinds that will work, Bersa and NAA. Next get a Hoage Handall Jr. these will reduce the felt recoil considerably. Good luck.

Thanks for the info - I'll give that a try.

Some really like the finger extensions (actually 3 kinds now) and some really like the +1 as a finger extension. I fall into the later as I don't like the extra width/sharp edges that the finger extensions add. But then, like you said, a quick sanding/dremmeling could take care of that too!

They really are enjoyable weapons and part of hte enjoyment is working on them to get them perfect for you!

Try this also, it makes the pistol so much nicer to handle;
