After about 250 rounds, the nose of the aluminum frame is showing some peening and battering.

My P32 never did that, even after 1,000 rounds but my P11 showed a very similar battering in the exact same spots on both sides of the aluminum frame rails at the front. I kept worrying that the peening would get worse but it never did.

I hope the P-3AT behaves in a similar manner to my P11 and I'll chalk it up to slide and frame mating up and "getting comfortable" with each other.

Any comments on this?

It's happened to almost all of them, including all three of mine...
What I did was mark the inside of the slide with Prussian blue, and then with a flat needle file remove aluminum from the frame until it exactly matched the front of the slide.
The word from Kel-Tec on this is to lightly file the battered edges flush again until the battering stops.
