The Kel-Tec P-3AT is a semi-automatic, locked breech pistol chambered in 380ACP. This 8.3 ounce 6+1-round pistol is double action only and measures a mere 5.2 inches in overall length with the barrel length contributing only 2.7 of these inches. Thanks to its 3.8" sight radius, locking dynamics, superior ergonometry, perceived recoil and practical accuracy are comparable to much larger guns. Its slim width of 0.77 inches makes the P-3AT a great concealable option for plainclothes police officers as a secondary weapon, or for concealed carry by licensed citizens. The small grip size and light 5-pound trigger pull make the P-3AT ideal for female shooters.
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.
