Summary: The manufacturer’s description and specs, the average user rating, and pricing info for the Kel-Tec PF-9 pistols.

Manufacturer’s Description

The PF-9 is a semi-automatic, locked breech pistol, chambered for the 9mm Luger cartridge. It has been developed from our highly successful P-11 and P-3AT pistols with maximum concealability in mind.

The PF-9 has a single stack magazine holding 7 rounds. Firing mechanism is Double-Action Only with an automatic hammer block safety. The PF-9 will be available in blued, parkerized, and hard chrome finishes. Grips will be in black, grey, and olive drab.

The PF-9 retains the best features from our P-11 and P-3AT pistols combined into the flattest and lightest single stack 9mm configuration ever made. The barrel, locking system, slide stop, assembly pin, front sight, recoil springs and guide rod are adapted from the P-11. The PF-9 is nearly identical to the P-11 in length and height and shares the same exterior controls. The shorter trigger system with integral hammer block and the extraction system are adapted from the P-3AT. Just like the P-11, the PF-9 will accept +P ammunition, however, not with continuous use.

The rear sight is a new design and is adjustable for windage with the supplied allen wrench as well as for elevation with the use of shims (not included). The included seven-round rectangular magazine is supplied with a finger extension base plate and numbered holes. The under barrel accessory rail shares the dimensions of the MIL-STD-1913 picatinny rail although there is only one locking notch in the forward position.

MSRP: $333–$390

    My personnel experience with buying one of these mouse guns was this. I went straight to the shooting range, after cleaning of course. I experienced no problems wath so ever with the gun and I shot 350 rounds through it. It was about 3 weeks later pulled it out of the gun safe went to shoot it and it was jaming, dropping the clip out upon recoil, stove piping etc…I had the dealer send it in for repair. Well to make a long story short, it made three trips back to the factory for repair before the gun would function right. They had the gun longer in thier hands than I did mine. I sold it once it was working right and will not buy another Kel-tec. If I can’t trust a gun I won’t own it! I will say this, Kel-Tec answered thier phone, had no problems with fixing it etc…. Thier customer service was GREAT and I most certainly can not say that about other firearm manufacturers!

    The takedown pin or field disassembly pin (whatever you’d like to call it) broke during a range trip with standard winchester white box ammo. Kel-tec replaced the part for free, but I can’t get rid of this thing soon enough. I definitely would not bet my life on this gun.

    The gun was horrible to shoot: lots of recoil and you had to have a death grip on the thing to have any sort of accuracy. It jammed every now and then, but more often than I was comfortable with.

    My PF-9 is my go to summer gun. I found that most of the malfunctions I experienced were due to poor grip. Most notably, if you limp wrist this gun, it will not cycle correctly. Once I figured that out, I have had few malfunctions and have fired hundreds of rounds through it. My only complaint would be the ridiculously heavy trigger. I would recommend this gun to others.
