In my previous review of the P3AT, I mentioned an
aftermarket addition called the "P-Sight".
The P-Sight is a drop in rear sight widget that
you just glue in. While I mentioned it in passing
as something of interest for those that had the
Kel-Tec P3AT, I hadn't actually had a chance to
play with one of these sights.
In the following photos you can see the normal
"Rear Sight" and the "P-Sight".
The P3AT is a surprisingly accurate little gun,
but the sights are only mere suggestions and most
of the aiming is done with gross alignment of the
shape of the slide against the target. It's fast
and it works fine against close range, torso
sized targets. However if you
want to extend your reach a little and shoot at
some smaller targets or you require more
precision in your sight alignment... then you
will want a P-Sight.
You can see that the P-Sight gives you a normal
style rear sight to work from. I found that this
little widge does help with your precision aiming
and makes shooting target groups that much easier.
Unfortunately the rear sight doesn't
address the problem with the front sight, which
remains rather vague and easy to lose. So trying
to line the rear sight with the almost
nonexistant front sight is a little slower and a
little challenging. With some practice to get
used to the set up, you can work the little Kel-Tec
like a mini target pistol with some good results.
The P-Sight comes with a little instruction
booklet and an optional little tube of Loctite's
Black Max 380 glue. Use just a teeny bit and
that's all you'll need... that sight ain't going
anywhere with that stuff. (Get the optional glue...
handy stuff to have around if you dont have any)
Once mounted and the adhesive allowed to dry
completely, the gun is ready for duty. The rear
sight addition is unobtrusive. It doesn't snag
going into the pocket, and more importantly
coming back out quickly.
Whether or not you will personally find the P-Sight
useful would depend completely upon what type of
shooting you want to do with your P3AT. While I
like it, I'll have to put it into that "You
have to try it out for yourself" category.
