I started to have problems disassembling my Kel Tec P3AT. I found the problem to be in the recoil rod area. The head of the rod is dis-formed a little (no longer round, but with flat areas). Removing the slide is getting difficult. The head of the recoil rod is "catching" on the metal inside of frame and stopping removal of slide. It looks like there is a "divot" in the metal where the recoil rod head would normally be situated. With the recoil spring assembly removed, there is no problem. I'm getting with Kel-Tec.
