If you wanted a gun the is easy to hold than you would get a 1911. It was fairly accurate but 100% reliable. I had a devil of a time with it until Big Al at Mid America Arms showed me his trick. It appears the latest versions are much more reliable but the older serial numbers have had numerous problems and running production changes are pretty significant. If you happen to have such an early gun doubtful they would send you the lighter spring.
I'm trying to work out the trade details after I just saw pics of it a few minutes ago, it looks like it's brand new and comes with 2 mags, original case, and a fobus holster. I only dropped the slide over the side of my table shooting the springy parts to the end of the range once. I had to deburr, file and sand the mold flashing in the trigger guard and a few other spots. I was happy with it to begin with but as time passed I slowly convinced myself that I wanted something else. I have not had any reliability issues out of my Kel-Tec firearms and will continue to be a loyal customer. I put an extension on one of my mags to make grip fit hand better.
Mine is finally working well with an entirely new barrel that I bought from them of the latest manufacture. Whatever you get, I would strongly recommend something other than the standard blued finish. The takedown detent is small and well- recessed. Carrying it, though, is another matter. Still, the fit and finish is fine.
I loved it from the first time I fired it. I think you will experience the same problem. What it looks to me like is you want to carry without the bulk and weight issues. A little later on, they changed the extractor from a double to a single spring. Also dealing in other Winchester, Browning, Beretta, Ithaca, and side by sides. Look for serial numbers post 60k as the factory did a much better job. Those are the only 2 significant differences among P11s.
I have large hands; I can only get my middle and ring finger around the grip. I bought it with the intention of having a small , decent capacity carry gun. The 15 year old P11 is a time tested platform. Is there anything that can be done to improve it without reducing reliability? As for the anti 380 folks, well I was one too. You might also have to tweak wings on mag.
Double strike capability, good capacity for the size, easy to use, no safety to deal with, and the letter guns have an 8. My review from November of 2010 was quite favorable. My eyes and her rear sights met and I found. All costs associated with the recall of your firearm shall be covered by Kel-Tec. I have seveal of the little pocket pistols in 32 and 380 that I love, but not the p11 John l I can conceal my Glock 36 in the summer inside my waist band by just wearing an oversized shirt. And the rear sights are adjustable for windage.
I cannot do that with my Glocks or even my J frame Smith. I know if I call the company they can tell me but they are closed on the weekends and I'm gonna do this possibly tomorrow. I also noticed that the tip of my finger would get a little snap; probably the meat of my finger getting a mild pinch between the end of the trigger and the trigger guard. Still, they have a lifetime warranty. There have been no significant changes since long before that.
Our goal is to be a friendly community that welcomes enthusiasts of all makes and models! I'm sure everyone has had that happen. Mu P11 would remind me not to limp wrist it by hitting me in the forehead with empty cases :-. I had some problems with it but Kahr resolved them for me. I can't believe the people that will bet their life on such an underpowered cartridge as a. However, when assembled it takes 3 men and a boy to pull the trigger.
