    Bersa finger extension for P-3AT

    Could I get some feedback from any P-3AT owners as to whether the $6 Bersa finger extension modification for the Kel-Tec P-3AT magazine is worth it?
    Thanks!

    Expensive

    It's a bit expensive for a cheap part, but supply and demand rules. It makes a big difference and we get lots of customers for them. The NAA magazine base also works, BTW, but it's much bigger by comparison.

    I need to get the NAA or bersa one soon, I know I've seen where one of the two requires slight modification, and the other doesn't.

    I have both the finger extension and the +1 round extension on two of my magazines. It is nice to have that extra round but IMHO I prefere the finger extension. It helps manage the felt recoil of the handgun.

    NAA

    The stud that locks the floorplate on doesn't mate up with the hole in the NAA version. You have to trim away some of the plastic so the plate can move forward slightly. It's about a 5 minute fix with a Dremel or Xacto knife.

    I daily carry my P3AT, I have one mag with the Bersa extension on and one without. The extention really helps with this little gun and still fits in a jeans pocket nicely.

    I just ordered a couple from Bersa...but you would think Kel-Tec would start putting them on the magazines themselves...or at least offer it as an option.

    So what's the verdict on the +1 extension?

    You bet it works! Without it...I can hardly hold this little devil. This is my Sunday-go-to-meeting weapon. Oh...I also use it when I wear my tux and when those tight jeans will not allow me to pocket carry my 642.

    obnexd, the +1 extension can be tricky. Some require you to sand the edges of the magazine follower a little or you will get a FTF. IF you get one, go to KTOG, and there is a detailed explaination on how to " streamline " the magazine. I have been toying with the idea of trying to mount a Bersa extension to the +1 extension. We will see, it would be the best of both worlds. I look at it this way, accuracy is more important than an extra round. I feel that my accuracy declines when I shoot with the +1 extension due to the metal extension piece being slanted rearwards. But with that being said, I carry both, I can consistently hit COM, 2" groups at 7 yards with both.
