The firing mechanism is double action only. The magazine has a 6 round capacity. The KEL-TEC P-3AT is the lightest .380 Auto pistol ever made. Thanks to its locking dynamics and superior ergonometry, perceived recoil and practical accuracy are comparable to much larger guns.
The P-3AT is mainly intended for plainclothes police officers as a secondary weapon, or for concealed carry by licensed citizens. The small grip size and light trigger pull make the P-3AT ideal for female shooters.
From the very beginning of the design and development, computers have been used exclusively. All machined components are also made on modern high speed computerized equipment. Equally advanced quality control equipment and test procedures ensure a firearm with uncompromising quality in materials and workmanship.

The P-3AT has five main component groups: barrel, slide, firing mechanism, grip, and magazine.
The barrel is made of SAE 4140 ordnance steel, heat treated to 48 HRC.
The slide is also 4140 steel, and contains the firing pin and the extractor.
The rectangular frame is machined from solid 7075-T6 aluminum and houses the firing mechanism.
The trigger connects via a transfer bar to the hammer. The hammer is driven by a novel free floating extension spring. The light weight firing pin transmits the energy of the hammer to ignite the primer. After firing, the hammer block holds the hammer away from the firing pin, providing a mechanical safety. The functioning of the mechanism greatly surpasses all applicable SAAMI safety standards.
The grip is made of the ultra high impact polymer Dupont ST-8018. The grip also forms the magazine well and the trigger guard.
The P-3AT is normally supplied with a 6 round single column steel magazine.

  • Great weapon for carry/

    Posted by Bob Vincent on Dec 11th 2014

    I just had a P3TA now for a few weeks. I was worried the cheap price would mean bad performance. After shooting Remington, Hornady, Fiocchi ammo in JHP and FMJ with some defensive loads as well with no malfunctions. Then I had 2 in the next 40 rounds with cut rate cheap Russian Tull Ammo with steel cases. Both malfunctions was from the cases splitting in the barrel. I ran a few Buffalo Bore +P loads in it which now is my carry load. The trigger needs some getting used to and the sights are almost non-existent I managed to finally get the group down to within the 7 ring at 21 feet. I have put a side mount Laserlyte on it and after sighting it in I managed to group fist size at that ranger. I took the target to the stop at the end of the range appx 30 feet and can keep those shots in the size of a paper plate. With a little help from the Laser and getting used to the trigger I know when I need to ever pull it I know it will fire when I need it to.

  • Ideal size for CCW or Backup Gun

    Posted by Christine on Nov 22nd 2013

    I spent a lot of time researching and "test-driving" potential small pistols for concealed carry and finally settled on this little Kel-Tec without an ounce of regret. I'm accustomed to shooting a Ruger SR22 and a Glock G17 Gen 4 for home protection and practice, but needed something small, concealable, light-weight and effective to carry with me for continuous personal protection. This little gun fits the bill nicely, and is easily concealed both in my purse or holstered on my person under clothing. Because my fingers are longer, I also purchased an extended 9 round magazine which makes the gun a much more comfortable fit while practice shooting at the range. The low sites have taken me a while to get used to, but with lots of practice and the addition of an easy-to-install side-mount laser, this little gun has performed admirably. This isn't something I would take to the range for regular target shooting fun, but is ideal for keeping with me on a regular basis. Perhaps the only real downside I've experienced is the high cost and low availability of ammunition. Thank goodness for gun shows!

  • Good Guns

    I have 2 of these. They Shoot good and I have laser sites on mine. Great gun for the money

  • Good CCW

    Posted by bah on Sep 19th 2011

    This weapon is extremely light and small, it will hide away just about anywhere without anybody ever noticing, but yet is very functional, I sure wouldn't want to be staring down the other end of it. The one gripe I really have with it is that depending on how you carry it, it can be very easy to hit the clip release and just have the clip floating around, which is no good if the clip isn't latched in when you need it to be. Other than that it is a very solid and affordable gun.

  • ok i guess

    Posted by z06-2003 on Aug 29th 2011

    Would not trust may life to this gun, seams like a toy. but for the price i guess it's not a bad deal.

  • Good for CCW

    Posted by HAndre53 on Dec 24th 2010

    I've been carrying this gun in a pocket holster for a couple of years. I had one problem with it the first time at the range. It was returned to Kel-Tec and it was repaired and returned in about 2 weeks. Since then I've put about 300 rounds through it with no problems. Two things I do not like are no slide hold open and the grip extension . I've never had a problem with the grip extension , I just don't care for the design, the bottom clip holder seems weak.

  • Great for concealed carry

    Posted by Vondingo on Dec 19th 2010

    This is a great little gun. I have had it almost 4 years and have have fired at least 400 rds through it and it is still going strong. Very comfortable to carry(I use the belt clip). If I could ever convince my wife to want a weapon, this would be the one.

  • It is what it is.

    Posted by TheLateBoyScout on Dec 15th 2010

    I do not own a P3AT, but I've shot 100+ rds through one that belongs to a friend. Towards the end of that shooting excursion I encountered many FTE's. The gun hadn't been cleaned recently (or maybe ever), and I was shooting just cheap Blazer aluminum. Also, I was in a dusty, desert environment. Sounds like rough conditions, I know, but I still think it should have performed better.

    This is a pretty remarkable gun for concealed carry. It's as light-weight as it gets, and also it's super-affordable. If your system won't allow for something heavier, larger, or more expensive, this is a great option. That said, it's a cheap gun and it shouldn't be abused. If you carry it regularly, and shoot it rarely, it will probably last you a really long time. If you take it to the range daily, and don't clean it well - or often, expect it to fail on you.

  • Great back up gun

    Posted by Brad on Dec 15th 2010

    I've been carrying this gun as a backup in a pocket holster and off duty using the clip. The gun is barely noticeable but is there in a pinch.

  • Great Little Weapon

    Posted by Jester on Nov 30th 2010

    There is rarely a time that I am not able to carry this weapon. It is small and light and can disappear in just about anything you want to wear. Fit and finish are utilitarian (standard Kel-Tec) but function has been perfect for me over the 5 years I've owned it and with about 1500 rounds down range. Sights are small but usable if you need to. I've never had a problem qualifying with it as my BUG which includes 25 yd courses of fire. Highly recommended.

  • Great little pocket gun

    Posted by Mike on Nov 26th 2010

    Although I have very large hands, I have no problems with this very small pistol- I purchased one of the 9 shot magazines! This gives you 10 rounds of .380 firepower, AND a full grip for better control. I can still fit it in my pocket with ease. The little gun digests everything from factory loads to all my hand loads. I painted the slide with Duracoat and it is impervious to rust. It goes everywhere I go.

  • Great Pistol - Just break it in!

    Posted by Tuck0311 on Nov 25th 2010

    Great little pistol, perfect for everyday carry. The first time I shot it the small grip made it hard to grip and it kept trying to climb out of my hand. After about three trips to the range the pistol really settled down. I would recommend it.

  • Kel-Tec Micro 380 P-3AT

    Posted by RAS on Nov 15th 2010

    I wanted a small gun, easy to shoot, and easy to carry. The Kel-Tec 380 P-3AT is both. It fits great in my hand (which is small) and is easy to handle and fire. I find it very comfortable on the firing range or while using as conceal carry.

  • Reliable, simple, annoying sights

    Posted by bbt1100 on Nov 15th 2010

    I enjoy this little pocket gun! Easy to carry, easy to clean and simple in design. There is no safety, but it has a long trigger pull that makes an accidental misfire nearly impossible. Some people complain about the trigger because of this, but it is a matter of practicing with it to get used to it. My only REAL complaint is the sights. They are short and hard to line up in a quick situation. Although the philosophy of use behind this gun doesn't quite require larger sights, I do prefer something a little bit more substantial.

  • Great little pistol

    Posted by Rick on Nov 15th 2010

    Given the limitations of the small form factor for this pistol, I rate it a 5. It's incredibly lightweight and easy to carry concealed for self-defense. It does recoil quite a bit, and the sights are about average for this type of pistol. The owner's manual states that it is likely to jam during the first 50 - 100 rounds and mine did, a couple of times. However, after that it worked great. Accuracy is about what you'd expect for a gun this size - at 7 yards it will give you a decent shot group, which is what you need at that range.
