You can still search by the UPC and get links to places which list prices. Still falling in about the same range as listed earlier. Aluminum frame version is "~$550-650" and the poly is "$320-350"Interesting that when I check the two links today there is no longer prices shown. Wish I had done a screen shot showing the prices as I can't remember what they were. Wonder if they jumped the gun by posting them and were told to take them down.
It makes it less than a G-LOCK and about the same price as the G-LOCK clones. It has more features than the clones and still uses the P11/S&W Mod 59 magazines while competing in the same space as the P365XL or Glock 43X (or the others in this class).Tree-fiddy or less for the poly version ain't bad at all.
I've heard that the greater mass will soak up recoil but I've also heard that the polymer frames flex more which soaks up more recoil. Whatever. For me, it's aesthetics for sure. The aluminum frame version definitely has a Hi Power vibe that I dig.Six-fiddy for the aluminum is ... well ... not outlandish, but still seems a bit steep to my cheapskate tastes. Other than being able to swap out grip panels, and other purely aesthetic reasons, I'm not really sure I see the appeal of the aluminum-frame version (much like the hoopla over the all-metal M&P that came out recently), but that's just me.
If they prove to be reliable, I might wind up with a poly one, myself, at some point just for giggles, since I've already got some P11 mags floatin' around.
Ahhh, but which Monday is the question.
I couldn't care less about the P15, so I don't care if it ever gets released. I'm just passing on what the man from Kel Tec said. Do with it as you will.Ahhh, but which Monday is the question.
Seriously KT's slowness with rolling out new products has worked well for me. It lets me get over the excitement & think things thru. In the case of the P17 it stalled long enough for the price of ammo to go up & for me to get into reloading. Rimfire is not on my priority list.
In the case of the P15 I had enough time to realize that an improved P11 is not something that I need or want, I've already got a S&W that's about the same size & weight with a sweet SA trigger.
If they had made the P15 10-15 years ago that's another story.
