    GET OFF MY LAWN!
    Got the call today that my new hard chromed slides are done and have been shipped out. Turnaround time 4 days (not counting the week that was from my company credit card being maxed out due to another idiot employee)

    Shipped the slides/barrels from both the P11 and P3AT asking to upgrade them to the hard chromed models and get a set of Trijicons mounted for the P11.

    20 bucks for each slide. (these are brand new slides too, not a recoat on the old ones)
    80 bucks for the sights (installation included)
    and no cost to ship back.

    They also smoothed out the slides at no extra cost (a basic melt job) and tested everything to make sure the extractor on the P3AT was working properly and the sights were dialed in.

    I wish other gun companies were this awesome.

    Decided that I wanted a change in the looks and since I was getting sights put on, I figured 20 bucks for a completely new and better slide is a steal.

    The company may have good service but they have the worst triggers ever.

    Still it is a nice handy gun for CCW.

    That's the reason. They are designed specifically as a CCW gun.
    Their triggers are their safety. They are designed to emulate a double action revolver with a long 8lb pull so there is less chance of accidental discharge. Considering what they are for (pocket pistols) I think the trigger is great.

    Just got them back today. They polished both feedramps, test fired them both to set the sights and make sure the extractors worked and buffed them up nice. The Trijicons really glow well. They also tossed in new stainless slide release and takedown pins. Now I just have to find a way to sneak out of here and hit the range.

    sorry for the crappy pic, only have a webcam here.

    I was thinking about getting the Handall Jr. Small Size Grip Sleeve for my kell-tech... anyone have one? Like it?
     
  8. I love Kel-Tecs
    great guns, weigh hardly nothing and the customer service is awesome.
    I carry a P-40 and a P-32 daily and I sell the pocket slipper lasers for the 32 and 380.
    even give an off topic discount if ya ask.

    I just wanted something different looking that was a bit more durable than the standard blueing. Since it was 20 bucks for a brand new slide, I couldn't pass it up. Try getting a new finish done anywhere else for that cost :)

    The hard chrome is actually like a matte greyish silver and not a polished surface. The webcam makes it look alot brighter than it really is.

    That's what's on my P3AT. it's not too bad. I have big hands though and the finger grooves feel a bit weird. I think I will probably swap it for AGrips or DecalGrips for both.
