Hey folks
I picked up a new P-3AT yesterday, and was gonna go shoot it tomorrow.
I sat down to clean it before shooting, and I noticed that the finish on the slide is really rough. It looks like it had been rusted to the point of pitting, and then cleand up and reblued.
I also noticed 2 small cracks on the very front edge of the ejection port that look like they go completely through the slide (from top to bottom).

Is this standard for Kel-Tec, or did i just get a weird one?
I am gonna call KT on monday, but was just wondering if the rough finish was something to be expected with these or not.

Thanks!!

How about posting some pics?

The sides of the slide retain the semi-finish they get as part of the bar stock, but no operations are performed on them by Kel-Tec IIRC. As a result, they sometimes have little imperfections, pits, etc. (but not rust or rust related issues) from the box.

The cracks don't sound normal at all.

I dont have a camera to take pics, but upon closer inspection, there are 2 very definite cracks that are about the width of a piece of paper and abou 1/16" long.
I am not worried too much about the finish, i am sure it will get much worse bangin around in my pocket, but i hear KT has really good customer service.
