There is no easy way to do this on the K3 when there is film loaded. The best you'll be able to do is unscrew the lens and let the spring wind down to nothing, then you can take a look at the gate with the mirror out of the way. Of course this is quite a pain if there is film in the camera and the spring is at the top of its wind. You'll waste a lot of film trying to do this.
If you're that worried, then wind the spring 1/4, so that after your take you only have to run the camera a little bit before the spring winds out.
I don't know how else you can do it?
Basically the K3 is a "hail mary" camera, you don't worry about such things as a hair in the gate. Be careful with your loading and you should not have an issue.

thanks a lot, maybe I cut the dust, hairs and all this grab with a 1,85 cache/letterboxed, so I havn't to care much about this dust checks.
Yeah but you still have to watch out for the sides, don't want to have to crop in any further!
