Kel-Tec PF-9 PF-9 7+1 9mm 3.1"
[PF9]
$257.00
by Dan U Date Added: Sunday 05 February, 2012
When I saw this gun on sale I snatched it right up, after waiting for 3 months for my local gun dealer to NOT get it in. I was impressed with the gun when I first got it and couldn't wait to take it to the range. The only "range" ammo I put through it was the cheap Wal Mart Federal stuff (I had no desire to spend extra money on what SHOULD be dirt cheap ammo). If I recall, the first range outing didn't have any jams. Aside from the grip tearing my hand apart from sharp edges (which I subsequently knocked off with sand paper), the gun did not seem, to me, to be all that accurate. I couldn't hit a grouping at 10 yards consistently. I had to drift the rear sight since the front sight didn't even LOOK like it was centered on the slide. After that, the gun was still not all that accurate (for me). I'm accurate with every other gun I have, just not the PF9. Reliability, at first, seemed great.

The next range outing, I experienced what could only be described as a life ending jam. The slide would recoil without the casing, strip the next round out of the magazine, jamming it into the casing still in the chamber. Needless to say, the ONLY way to clear this jam is to manually lock the slide back, physically rip the magazine out (because of the half-fed round), and manually clear the chamber of the casing. I thought it was maybe due to limp wristing (which I don't do), but that wouldn't exactly explain why the extractor was failing to get a hold of the round in the first place. I had read online that maybe it was due to a weak extractor, but I personally felt that the sheer design of the extractor was a flaw in and of itself, making it not able to apply as much pressure as an internal rocking extractor, like that found on a Glock, HK, 1911, etc. After the next outing, with more life-ending jams, I decided to sell it. I didn't want to deal with a "new extractor" since I felt the design was inherently unreliable.

However, the PF9 you get may not have any of these issues (I hope, for your sake).
