Kel-Tec 7 + 1 Round 9MM w/3" Barrel/Parkerized/Black Finish
[PF9PK]
$270.00

I recently received this gun from Bud's. Excellent service as always.

The Bad: Took it to the range for break in. Shot 2 boxes of 50 rounds through it. Near the end of the first box, the last round in the mag did not eject. In fact it stayed fully in the chamber. I was hoping this was a fluke. However, while shooting the second box of 50 I had at least 1, sometimes 2 FTE's complicated by the fact that it was not the last round in the mag. The next round tried to load which held the spent cartridge in place and would not allow me to drop the magazine. I had to hold the slide open, push down the live round back into the magazine, then drop the mag and shake free the spent cartridge. A couple of times I even had to use another spent cartridge to pull the stuck cartridge out. I guess now I get to find out first had how good Kel Tec’s customer service is. I have heard good things about them, but hoped I would never have to find out.

The Good: The three dot sights work well. I was shooting reasonably tight groups after I put a couple of magazines through it, and got use to the feel of the gun. I knew in advance the grips could be a little harsh, so I immediately bought and installed a Hogue Handall Junior Universal Slip-On Grip Sleeve (upside down), so I had no issues with that. The gun is small and light, and easy to conceal. I bought this as a carry weapon, so that was very important to me.

The magazine comes with a flat bottom installed, and a grip extension that you can easily install yourself. It’s not really a pinky grip, because as I stated this gun is small, but it gives your third finger a little more room, and you have a very good grip on the gun. Your pinky rests comfortably underneath the magazine.
All in all, I really like the gun if they can fix the FTE issue. However, after a gun malfunctions, it takes a long time for me to trust it enough to use it as a carry weapon. I’ll report back on my experience with Kel Tec’s customer service. Wish me luck.
