how is the reliability? Accuracy? Worth the money?
I owned two. untill my wife got a hold of them! Now I carry my ruger .380 and she has the Kel's. great gun!
does anybody know if the "fluff and buff" from ktog.org voids the warranty, if we perform it ourselves?
I realy don't think its needed doc. at least I didn't "fluff and buff" any of the three I've owned. I did install metal guide rods, (5 bucks) from kel-tec. I traded one in on a ruger .380 the other two are my wife's. I think these are great for what they are designed for, self protection.
thank you gunnutz
anybody have experience with the metal guide rod for this model, vs the factory plastic. thinking about going with the metal but if kt put the plastic for a reason i may not.
I was thinking about getting one of these as a bug since I checked with my seecamp dealer and there is a one year waiting list. I just can not wait that long.
dsclaiborne31; I have two P-32's or rather my wife does. Mine have been great! First thing I did was order metal guide rods and return springs also 8 round mags. The mags have a finger support. Guide rod and springs were about 15 bucks. I like to have a spare spring, just cause the gun is no good with out one, same goes for extra mags. I also have a Ruger .380, I like the P-32 better because of the extra 2 rounds. Other wise I havn't noticed a difference. gun
So gun nutz do you think it would be a good bug?
It's been good for us. Keep in mind it's not a range gun.
I know that I will take it to the range though and shoot it to practice with but only out to about the 15 marker.
Gun nutz where did you order the spring and guiderods from?
disclaiborne Kel-Tec factory has all the parts. When you buy your pistol there should be a booklet with instructions and a parts list with prices. They also have a life time warrenty. I just called and ordered what I needed.
Good idea to practice with what you carry. Try some different types of good ammo, to see what you like. gun
That is good to know that keltec sells the parts.
I bet this thing has hardly any recoil huh?
I bought the P-32 when it first came out...actually for my wife. She never wanted to practice...I never had a good feeling about "arming" her...so I took back the little gun, fitted it with the "clothing clip" and I've never been without it. It's a great "up-close & personal" weapon. I hardly ever use anything but "hardball" ammo in a defensive semi-auto...the 71gr. works well enough. Nice gun.
Not a big fan. Felt cheesey in my hand but fired without incident. Bought it and sold it within a month, replaced with Beretta 3032 Tomcat that I absolutely LOVE! The Beretta for a couple bucks more is a solid piece of well built machinery that I carry when the Florida heat does not allow for concealment of a larger gun.....Different strokes for different folks.
Before you say too much about that Beretta, perhaps you could visit our thread here on that thing. I hope you didn't buy the blued model...
I have two p32 g2's, but I won't get a third.
They win big on size/weight, with good fmj penetration;
but it took too many days of handwork, analysis,
range testing, and fuss to get them reliable.
I would rather pay double for one built to work.
Now both pass my 28-shot-no-malfunction test,
and I would not sell either for 900 bucks.
The triggers are still awkward, even after building
up the grips. My daily carry must be under 14 oz.
has most of the fixes that the two needed.
(and those are all needed)
If you have the g1 shown on this page, never tighten the
top setscrew; it might drag on, or lock, the firing pin.
And use either Fiocchi or S&B fmj for penetration,
without being over-pressure. Testing poplar wood
penetration shows it penetrates as well as the p3AT,
which is Job-1. And you get an extra shot, with
