    Exclamation Kel Tec P11: NEED HELP!

    Okay, I'm in north Florida for the next couple of days before heading home to Miami to finish off my summer vacation. My Father in Law has this Kel-Tec P11 that is filthy and bone dry. I need to field strip it and clean and lube it. CAN'T GET THE DURN THING APART! Any help in a clear cut set of instructions on a basic field strip would be greatly appreciated! I see the slide stop on the left side. I see that when the slide is locked to the rear, there is another notch on the left side just ahead of the slide stop notch. NOTHING that is in that area will move when the slide is to the rear! So I need some hints to leave the "Old Man" with a firearm in good working order and ready to go.

    And NO I don't have a manual and I can't download a manual. This 83 year old guy is still on a dialup connection and using an ANCIENT computer.

    It appears that you need to push the pins thru the trigger, slide assembly and then lift the reciever out, as the grip assembly is one piece.. see the link below

    Smile Thanks for the start!

    Okay, I see the pins. Do I need to use a tool for this? Is there anything under tension? Is something going to go SPROING! Across the room when I slide one off the other? Yes, weapon is CLEAR.

    I would use a pin punch, or a small allen type punch, to tap the pins out and pull them thru the other side with either a small plyer (so you can "feel" the spring tension as it slides through) I believe that once you push the trugger assy and slide assy out, you'll be able to push the slide off, via to the rear and up, as it appears there are machining slots for this operation.

    If all you're doing is field stripping the gun, you don't need any tools, but an empty 9mm case will come in handy...

    Lock the slide back
    Remove Magazine
    Verify chamber is empty
    Remove take down pin immediatly in front of the slide lock
    (Note: the pin is designed to pryed out using a 9mm case rim)
    Hold the slide, release the slide lock, and push the slide off of the front of the frame.
    Remove the guide rod, recoil springs, and barrel, and it's 'field stripped'.

    -warning- if you continue removing pins and parts from this point, small springs can (WILL) jump out.

    I _highly_ recommend a light coat of good gun grease (not oil) on the rails and hammer/slide interface.

    THANK YOU SO MUCH! I used the new dry lube from Militec that seems to bond with the metal parts. Works like a charm. This is a great gun for the old guy (83) as it requires a fairly heavy DAO pull every shot. I want him to KNOW somebody is about to die by his hand if need be. Not that this is anything NEW for him with the Navy Cross, Silver Star & TWO DFC's during WWII for downing 17 Jap Zeros. I'd truly HATE to be the mugger that sees him as the senior citizen easy target! Thanks again.

    Glad it helped, I'm quite happy with my P11. For an inexpensive, reliable, lightweight 9mm, I've not found anything better. I _Love_ the rohrbaugh R9, but the price of that thing!

    Oh, and thank your father-in-law for his service for me :)
