Well.....have put a few hundred through my hard chrome p3at now. This bout at the range, though, I noticed the assembly pin working its weasley way out. I was kinda bummed to see this, but I have read that this has been noted by others. Just curious what should I do? Fix it myself (http://www.1bad69.com/keltec/assemblypin.htm) or call KT?

By the way.....she still shot very well today with 0 FTFs or FTEs.

Do both. Call them and explain what happened & they'll send you a new one free. Do the yzguy fix on the one you have now and if it doesn't work or you mess it up, you'll have another one on the way.

just make sure you do something, or you will get frame dammage.... A spare to play with is a phone call away.

I called earlier today & the fellow in support I spoke with said he'd send a new one out today. Makes me feel better.

What type of frame damage might this incur? What should I check for?

Check inside the aluminum frame where the pin goes... make sure the holes aren't elongated.
If the pin only came partly out I'm sure you don't have any damage just yet.

Flyer,

No frame damage noted. New pin is on its way according to Justin over at KT.

Flyer....any word on your slide lock? I haven't had to the time to read as much lately as before.

new pin arrived......*sigh*

Well.....the new assembly pin arrived from Kel-Tec. I verified there was no frame damage & installed the new pin. Hit the range today & popped off ~ 150 rounds. Almost once a mag I had to push the assembly pin back in as it was still sliding out (even though it was the "newer" one).

Kind of bummed about that.....going to call Kel-Tec but will probably do the fix on http://www.1bad69.com/keltec/assemblypin.htm

Still bums me out, though......

And I think I have frame damage from all this......
