Some of our gunboards seem to have a thread like this, the PF9 board didn't. Obviously the PF-9 is a very hot seller these days and a lot of new folks here doing research would probably like to see this information.

For continuity, please select and copy the template below.
Then paste it into your reply.

Beyond that, you can add any information you like below that field.

OK, I'll start:


-- New or used: New
-- Where purchased: SAXET Gunshow, Central Tx
-- When purchased: 10/4/09
-- Serial number range: RHL##
-- Slide/barrel finish: Hard Chrome
-- Grip finish: Navy Blue
-- Marked price: $289.
-- Paid price: $289. + tax


At the time, PF9s were in very short supply. A dealer with whom I had never done business had this pistol. The price was fair. That he would not budge on his price did not bother me, as I was ectatic to find the Hard Chrome over Navy model, which of course is no longer available.

Before its maiden voyage, I cleaned and lubed the gun, and of course that is repeated every time the gun is fired. It has not had a fluff & buff or any polishing. The fit and finish on this pistol was very good.

At about 750 rounds, it has been flawless to date, and has functioned perfectly with the following ammo: 115 grain FMJ - Fiocchi, Monarc, Blazer Brass, and even the often nefarious Win White Box + 115 gr JHP (standard pressure) - Speer Gold Dot, which accounts for about 1/4 of the ammo that's gone down the tube, and about all it ever sees now. :cool:

I'm a little disappointed with it. I took it to the range on Dec 26 and 49 rounds later it its locking back to the rear with rounds still in the mag and the barrel hood is being chewed up by the barrel. I did figure out what was wrong so I will send it to Kel-Tec to be fixed. Unfortunately they a closed until Jan 09 2011.

I bought the gun from another user on a Nebraska gun forum. It looked like new, and I figured that since the guy had run about 200 rds through the pistol before he sold it to me, he saved me $40 worth of break-in. It came with three factory magazines.

The day after Christmas, my dad, my four brothers, and I doubled the round count on this pistol over the course of a couple of hours of shooting this and a dozen other firearms. There was one failure to go into battery more than a hundred rounds into the session, but other than that it ran beautifully. I was very impressed. The PF-9 is definitely displacing my S&W 638 as my primary CCW piece.
