Kel-Tec P3AT Gen2 Upper On Gen1 Lower
I was going to buy a Ruger LCP. But then I was thinking, maybe I'll just refnish the slide on my P3AT. I called Kel-Tec CS and they said that they would just replace my slide and barrel with the parkerized one for $60. Sounds like a good deal to me. But I have a Gen 1 that has the extractor that rides straight along the slide. They said that they don't make them anymore. The CS rep was unsure if the Gen 2 upper that has the angled extractor with the visible screw would work with a Gen 1 lower. She transferred me to another rep, but the call went to her VM. I'm waiting for a call back.
So I figured that I'd put it up here for any KT owners that may know about this.
Or should I just get the LCP and keep the shotty looking 3AT as a back up BUG (not meaning to carry 2 BUGs at the same time)? Maybe keep one in the locker at work and one at home.
I know that looks don't really matter for a pocket carried BUG, but the slide wear and bit of rust do bother me a little.
