Kel-Tec P-11-PK P-11 10+1 9mm 3.1" Parkerized
by Richard L Date Added: Friday 03 December, 2010
I ordered my Parkerized 9mm P11 from Bud"s two weeks ago. Delivery was fairly quick, although due to the way they shipped it, there was no tracking number or notice that it had shipped. I had to e-mail Bud's and ask. I then had to call my gun shop to find out when it arrived. I took it to the range today and shot a box of Sellier & Bellot 9mm Luger 115gr. FMJ and 5 rounds of Winchester 9mm NATO 124gr. FMJ to get an idea of how the pistol handled the differences in perceived recoil. As far a I could tell, the recoil was about the same. Kel-Tec does not recommend shooting large quantities of +P ammunition out of their guns (wear and tear issues) but shooting it is not dangerous. Recoil for both loads is sharp, but not painful. I did have one FTF with the S&B ammo but all I had to to to fix the problem was to pull the slide to the rear and let it go. The one "ergonomic" complaint that I had was the front of magazine base plate cutting into the base of my right little finger next to my ring finger. I have small hands, but the grip is a bit too short. Of course the space between my fingers quickly became sticky with blood. I would recommend getting the magazine grip extender which can be purchased on the Kel-Tec website. I'm going to order one soon.

When I first got the pistol, I took it home to clean it and apparently,the proofing ammo that Kel-Tec uses at the factory was pretty dirty but the pistol cleaned up easily. The problem came in reassembling it. It is possible to incorrectly reassemble the pistol with the assembly pin in front of the barrel lug. If this happens, the slide will stop about an inch short of being in full battery. Once you have assembled the recoil springs and barrel in the slide, it is necessary to press down on the rear (chamber) part of the barrel while pushing the slide/barrel assembly forward onto the frame. This allows the barrel to move forward enough in the slide to align the pivot hole in the barrel lug to line up with the assembly pin hole in the frame. Once the holes are lined up, snap the assembly pin into the hole. Pull the slide to the rear and let it go forward to check the functioning.
