How much for a Kel-Tec P3AT in your area ?


April 1, 2004, 09:10 PM
How much are Kel-Tec .380 P3AT pistols going for in your area ? I paid $275.00 for one of mine, and $250.00 for another one. Have seen them for as high as $319.00 around here ! I have been told that they can be had for around $200.00 in other parts of the Country. Doesn't make sense. I am only a couple of hours drive from the factory, and people in other states can buy them for less.

IIRC mine was $229 .. haven't checked the paperwork but that sounds about right. I know tho the price can vary quite a bit.

Distance to the factory unfortunately has no bearing on cost in your area. KT sells to distributors and some maybe get better deals than others depending on how many they buy and other factors. That determines the price your gunshop pays and of course they can mark it up to whatever they want depending on what the market will bear.

I thought that the guy at Gander mountain told me that they were about 180. They didn't have one in stock for me to look at.:mad:

Bought mine not too long ago. $239 at Gander Mountain, only place I could find one around here.

My favorite dealer has had them for the $250 range. I'm beginning to get interested in them, so I may be on the lookout. Seen them for $220 at recent gunshows NIB. Although I have a Guardian .380, I may have to give one of these a try for jogging/walking use.

Around here they are scarce.

My 'regular' gun shop has them for $269 but they always sell out before I get one. I went to a gun show last weekend and NOBODY had them. One place had just sold their last one for $269.

I stopped at a pawn shop today and they had a new one for $279. Tempted but after reading this thread I'm glad I hesitated.

I paid $239 last Sept., that was on the high side for good dealers around here (others were $249 - $279) but that was in September when they were pretty scarce. I could do better today and will in the next couple of months when I get my 2nd one.

I paid $300 for mine here in Las Cruces. I thought it was high, but the dealer shipped it back to the factory three times for me.

Seems to me that the shops that sell them for $250 (around these parts anyway) have several setting on shelves and several others in the back. Shops that sell them for $220 might have one... or they might be sold out.

It's been a while since I've seen one for over $250.

April 2, 2004, 04:21 PM
They are $259.00 around here...No I didnt pay that for mine:D

April 2, 2004, 10:07 PM

April 2, 2004, 11:35 PM

$299 - always high in the Charleston, SC area.

I paid $229 for mine in December.

$249 new in Philly in .32 or .380. Saw a used one at Mike and Kate's for the same price but it had an extra mag and already had the optional belt clip. (Don't recall if it was .32 or .380.)

A local shop just quoted me $300. Even Gunbroker is listing them cheaper, at $220 from a few dealers.

I got mine for $140 used at a gun show. However, this was a single shot version :D . It seems the magazine was just for show and wouldn't stay in the gun under recoil .

I just received the replacement mag stop and mag stop spring and installed them. Hopefully will test it out again tomorrow.
