    New report up grade on P3AT

    NEW REPORT I went and installed the 13lb wolff spring. It made a difference in recoil. Brought to a level of comfort . I was shooting S&B ball same as before.

    Shooting improved also. Same range as before approx 21'. I was shooting one handed facing target square on .Looking over slide as you can't see sights. (i haven't painted front sight)

    Target was a 8" Birchwood Casy The ones that show inpact. 6 shots S&B ball

    2x10 1x9 1x8 2x7 the 9,8,7, were all in a group at 3 :30 to 4 That's me and small grip. Those 4 rounds in a measured 3" group 2in 10 were touching

    For kicks and since I have several boxes of DPX coming I fired 3 90gr Corbon.

    Recoil was more but still not as bad as stock. At least to me.

    Pistol like me likes Corbon 1 x10 1x9 1x8 The 8and 9 were touching on line in 1o'clock angle and 10 was like flyer. Group Measured 1 1/2" I have always found Corbon to be very accurate. People Guess what in my P3AT till the DPX comes. I know I haven't shot 2 zillion rounds but I haven't made a carry yet.

    Drawback to 13lb spring. Some people may find hard to pull slide to rear to chamber a round. Their 4 more pounds to overcome and can be a little hard first couple times.

    So with a change of springs and a whole 9 shots I closed group a lot. The pistol stays on target much better with the 13lb spring. I think this would be a good investment I also had a more even ejection of spent cases. Before threw all over now more settled.

    Maybe I should paint front sight so I can see a spot of orange like my P-32's

    Well I can't say if you buy yours will be perfect. I can say this I belived all the internet bashing for a long time. But I also would handel the pistols at the gun shop. Maybe is was wishfull thinking but I belived I saw the QC improve in 2nd gen over first.
    So really against my better judgement I bought 1. A P-32. By end of first 50 rounds I was hooked went back next day and got #2 for wife..
    The KT is not in the class of a Seecamp as far as fit and finish. Their to different pistols.
    Larrys pistol is a fine made watch But its a blowback and has a might bit of recoil.
    The KT is a Timex not much in looks but will get the job done at a reasonable price. Both will fix you pistol if needed and both carry in pocket.
    I have went from a basher to a fan Keep clean.oiled and I belive they will be 99% trouble free nothing in this world is perfect.. Larry Seecamp in 380 is around $800+tax and up to a 2 year wait. My blue KT in 380 was $229+tax. A lot of difference and both do same job. I am not knocking Seecamp as I will have one in my Collection. Now to futher muddy up the water I would take a KT over any of the NAA Guardian Series. They are as heavy as some J frame S&W's and have a 15+lb trigger and QC has been less the perfect. Just my 02
