It would be great if Kel Tec will make a.380 coversion barrel and slide like the p-40 conversion kit for the p-11 for the P32 frame.

What about a necked down .380 to .32? Does it exist? If it does, I think it would be easy to fit a P-32 BBL to the new KT-.380 and have a nice little cartridge.

North American Arms has done just that with their Guardian 380. They have a new 32 caliber round based on the 380 necked down. If you are interested, you can read about it at:

No conversion. I spoke to KT this morning. The frame, grip, slide & barrel are all slightly bigger, won't work.

Don't know if anyone has posted the particulars yet on the P-3AT, but here they are:

Length: 5.16"
Height: 3.52"
Width: .75"
Weight: 7.3 oz. [unloaded]
Barrel: 2.76"
Capacity: 6+1 rounds of .380 ACP [Kurz]

The frame size and weight are between the P-32 and the P-11. Production and shipping should start in May, per Kel-Tec...
