    Hi Guys! I just came from Kel Tec CNC Inc. Fri. I just whent to COC to get 2 mags for my perfectly fine PF9 Never had a jam or problem with it, As i talkt to the gun smith that I had put over 6,ooo rnds. through it she looked with amaze and smiled, she asked nothing is rong with it? I reply no, everything works perfect, She asked if she could take a look at it, I responded OK. 30mm later she came with a big smile said, I giving you a new gun back, I ask What you mean? she said she replaced the aluminum frame becouse it was the old stile, She replaced the plastic mag, reli. with a metal one new and improved, Gave it a new barel since the one it had was the first ones that came out with them, Changed the giding rodd , Buffed the ramp, she made my gun new, I said but I didn,t need it, She smiled and said it this one Had 6,000 rnd, emagine how long it will last now with the improved parts, I thanked her all free of Cahrge, Great servise or What?:cool::)

    Some of the best customer service in the industry. My P11 has over 11K rounds (rough count) through it. I've had it a dozen years now. I shot it a lot when I got it, but get to the range less now days. I talked to a KT rep once, asked about replacing the recoil spring. I'd heard on KTOG that I should replace it every 5K rounds. He sent me a new spring, but told me it really didn't need it. "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." Tough little gun IMHO, well built, and backed by great folks.

    My P3AT will soon be a paperweight. It malfunctions after I carry it all week in a pocket holster. Ah...it does work well if I clean it, lube it and go straight to the range. I just read the first Ruger .380 range report compared to the P3AT and it sounds like a far superior weapon. I think Kel Tec makes cheap weapons...just my opinion.

    My P-3AT is regularly in my carry rotation. Bought it used from a co-worker that couldn't trust it.

    Read all sorts of good advice about care and feeding on the KTOG forums, and I now trust this gun unconditionally.

    My P-11 has been flawless from Day 1.

    Yet you still carry it????? KT does make cheap pistols. and some never seem to work well. But if you send it back , they will repair or replace it. That is not a good excuse for quality issues, but show me any gun maker that sells guns 2-3 times the cost of the KT that has no complaints about quality/function.

    MY PF9 has to go back for a walking extractor pin, so i have had problems with them as well. But i did not think that i was getting a swiss watch when i bought it for a cheap price, so i can live with getting it tuned-up.
