    Was suppose to been out Summer 2005 then fall and now 2006 I don't think its ever coming out. 4oz in weight and a little shorter terrible sights whats to want. Regular 380 Thunder works very well,for CCW.

    My interest lies in the fact that the CC model weighs 17.07 OZ. True the regular model is only at about 5 more ounces at 23 OZ, but then I'm getting close to the weight of a Glock 26. A light-weight .380 is what grabbed my attention. I gave Kel-Tec a fair try, more than once so a P3AT is not an option. It sounds like the Bersa is vaporware and may never materialize.

    I feel you brother! No more Kel-Tecs for me. Every Bersa I have owned has been good however so I was looking forward to the new one.

    At this thread has switched from a pro Bersa to a anti-P-3AT thread I would like to add a few comments.

    Last year I was able to pick up (dirt cheep) three P-3ATs from owners that elected not to return their pistols to Kel-Tec under the lifetime warranty. One had some excess red Loctite run down on the trigger axis requiring about 15lbs to pull the trigger instead of the normal 5lbs (I cleaned the trigger axis). The second had a feed ramp that looked like a staircase which Kel-Tec would have gladly exchanged (I used sandpaper to remedy this). The third was in pieces as the owner was trying to replace the magazine release. I replaced two springs that were damaged during disassembly and eventually had Kel-Tec send me a free grip, as a blob of polymer preventing some magazines from properly locking in place.

    While finding three P-3ATs with problems sounds like a lot, it’s really not. I search for them on gun forums and advertise for them as well. With Kel-Tec producing more than 1,000 P-3ATs per week, an industry error rate of 2% yields 20 possibilities per week. The trick is finding the folks who lack the time to tinker and don’t want to mess with free warranty work.

    The great thing about these featherweight mouseguns is simplicity. Even a mechanical klutz like myself can fix them and they are so inexpensive you won’t have a heart attack if you break it. Oh, the fact that Kel-Tec will send me most parts free is a big plus too.

    I love these pocket pistols and have yet to buy a used one that I can’t have 100% in less than two hours. I would like to expression my appreciation to all those that buy P-3ATs then sell them cheap :)
