    Hi everybody. I'm new to this site and have a question about the Kel-Tec P3AT. Is there anything out there to lenghten the mag.? Not really looking for extra rounds, just a extra room for my finger.

    Not sure if the Ruger LCP mag fits the 3AT but Ruger is making a mag extension now. To me, the LCP is a better looking 3AT.

    An LCP mag will not fit in the Kel-Tec, though the Kel-Tec mags can be used in either one. The Kel-tec magazines are just a bit longer than those of the LCP.

    You have a choice: either a finger extension floorplate or an extension that increases capacity by one round. Both can be ordered directly and quickly from KelTec.

    The P3AT parts can be found at the following link...

    http://www.kel-tec-cnc.com/cart/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=3_25

    The grip extension is $6.65 and the +1 magazine with grip extension is $14.30... :)

    The LCP may be 'better looking' but its more ergonomic grips make it less concealable and higher in weight... Both of those things make it less appealing to me because I don't hesitate to drop the P3AT in my pocket at any time with a pocket holster.

    Also, the LCP has been affected by a recent recall which requires its return to the factory due to the possibility of firing when dropped, much the same as the SR9 recall.

    For the long term, the LCP may be great but in the short term I'd get a proven pistol that isn't price-inflated due to its company's brand name with virtually no proof in the field...

    You can also use Bersa .380 and NAA .380 pinkie extensions on the Keltec mags.
    I have used both before Keltec came out with theirs.

    Thanks for all the replys. I'm thinking of going with the Bersa extension.
