Any thoughts on the Kel-Tec PF-9?

This is a discussion on Any thoughts on the Kel-Tec PF-9? within the Defensive Carry Guns forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; Kel-Tec is having trouble with the slides. Seems they're a bit on the thin side, making the slides twist a bit after heat treating..........

    I agree. My P11 is reliable, perfect size and shares mags with my smith 9mm.

    Don't Need...

    an extra BUG...
    I already have a P-11 and really don't use it much (but I'll keep it...), and another P-11/PF-9 (similar weapons) seems like a poor investment. Also, would want to wait until 'bugs' in this new PF-9 are worked out...I believe there were some difficulties and production has been delayed.
    My 'latest' extra $$$ is going into a Bushmaster .223...

    I'm actually looking into this gun as a primary. Had one on order for a few months, actually, and have been paying close attention to the issues documented on KTOG by TwoPistolPacker and Wilson (go there for lots of information on the issues). From what I hear, Wilson's pistol (the first to be sent back in) is being returned to him as we speak after receiving a new hardened slide and undergoing further testing. So the "1.1 Generation" PF-9 may be due for a release here shortly. I'm already amassing the 9mm rounds to put through the gun for endurance testing.

    I have had my new PF-9 for about 4 or 5 weeks now... 300-400 rounds down the pipe and not a single issue at all...

    VERRRRY sweet trigger pull, great feel and very accurate...

    I am VERY pleased and will certainly get a HC model when they come out...

    Can not beat the price!

    Woah woah woah? You mean they did away with the awful Kel-Tec trigger pull? Holy crap, now I really can't wait for this gun to be released.

    Check the K-T forums before you buy a PF-9. I've considered one myself, but the reviews at the two main Kel-Tec forums are reporting a lot of problems. It seems for every glowing report, there are two others with issues to discuss. You may want to wait (that's what some of the senior members of the forums are suggesting) and look at a few more reviews and/or wait for K-T to work out the kinks.

    The PF-9 is new - they've only been out since October - and there seems to be the usual growing pains with some of the first run of guns. K-T seems to be aware of the situation and is working to correct it.

    I was excited enough to put a 1/2 deposit on one at KTP back in August. I waited for a while and a couple of weeks ago got tired of waiting and spent the money on another gun instead.

    I'll be there Friday night...........as well as Sat and Sunday during the day if you get the urge to pass by
