Hello, I just returned from an extensive outdoor range session and comparison shot my recently purchased Ruger LCP and older Keltec P3AT.
Both automatics are laser equipped, a new Crimson Trace on the LCP and an Armalaser on the P3AT.I probably have put close to 500+ rounds thru the P3AT and only 200 thru the LCP. Most of the time both hit where aimed. But here is the difference, the trigger pull on the LCP is looong (!) and several times it didn’t trip the hammer sear until it was squeezed extra hard at the limit of its’ stroke, hard against the back of the trigger guard which resulted in a hit off the aimpoint. Like a jerked shot. The trigger pull on the P3AT is smoother and not as long and trips the sear smoothly as it should and subsequently is more reliable and accurate.
I do believe that I have a “latent trigger” problem and plan on calling Ruger to ask if this problem can be fixed. It has to be made to fire reliably and accurately every time. I believe that at this point I will continue to rely on the P3AT.
QUESTION: Has anyone else had a “hard trigger” experience with “ElsiePea”?... Fix?... Results?

Hey McCoy, welcome to the forum! While I really don't have a frame of reference, never shot the KT, I wish the trigger on my LCP was a little shorter. However, It always trips the sear before it bottoms out. As far as the trigger weight, I think it's about right for a pistol that's going to be carried in my pocket and does not have an external saftey, I like my parts right where they are.... ;)
Regards,
Mike

sounds to me like another transfer bar problem. needs to be sent back to ruger or it will most likely get worse.
