    Good Deal on a Kel Tec PF9?

    Hey everybody, tomorrow morning I'm planning on getting a PF9 for $300 NIB at my local GS for a BUG. This is the first one I have seen in quite awhile, and the first around here for under $360.

    Can they be had cheaper elsewhere? I saw that on GunBroker it looks like the average is about $350. Thanks for any info!

    Don't think you will find one cheaper than that. Better buy it quick before someone else does.

    Might want to check at ktog.org for the serial number series to make sure it is a later model and not one of the earlier more problematic ones.

    As far as "jumping on it"
    That's what I was thinking. Last time I saw them in there around a month ago they sold one for $265. Today they got in a P-3AT and put a tag on it for $245. They had no reason for the major price discrepancy between the P3AT and the PF9. Other than it's what the manager put on it. Of course he wasn't there today to ask about it.

    It's one of the newer ones, they just got it in from there supplier who gets it from Kel Tec.

    Not a bad price. Like mentioned earlier, make sure it is a new or newer gun. The earlier units did have some problems reported. And like someone else said, if you don't buy it, it will be gone tomorrow.

    Mine was 279 or 289 when I bought it (can't remember). I would jump on it. I love mine and carry it a lot. Get a handall jr....it will help with the grip. Also, visit the KTOG as mentioned above....lots of info over there. Good luck

    Thanks everybody, I'm definitely going to get it. Maybe I'll be able to talk them down a few bucks or have them throw in a pocket holster.

    I got mine at a gun show last month for $299. I saw a couple others at the same show though that they wanted $350 for.

    I bought one about a month ago had a lot of problems with it. It was the new model PF9. First it would not feed heavy bullets FMJ or HP's. Worked on feed ramp and it now was working ok with 115 ball. At first I couildn't even get a mag full thoguht the gun without it failing to feed. Now that it began to feed better it won't extract and causes double feeds. Called Kel Tec and they are sending me a new extractor, spring and screw see if that helps. I love the gun, it's size and caliber but if it doesn't work it's useless. I don't like the way the extractor is designed not enough spring tension at the front of the extractor and they fit loose. Needs a small spring inside with the outside spring. They are hit or miss, good luck. By the way my gun was $299.00.

    By the way trigger slap is wicked, wear two bad aids around your trigger finger, trust me on that one.

    The price is fair. I bought one at the end of last year, but sold it and put the money toward my Glock 19.

    The PF9 was a little too uncomfortable for me to shoot and I like to practice. I also think I shoot the larger gun better because of how it fits my hand.

    Sometimes I wish I had the PF9 for everyday carry. When I bought the Kel Tec, my only other gun was a revolver with a 6 inch barrel--great to shoot, not good to carry. If I already had the Glock, then got the PF9, I think I would have hung on to it for summer carry.

    By the way, my PF9 was pretty good mechanically, but nothing like the Glock which has really been "perfect" so far.
