New guy checking in.

I e-mailed Palmetto State Armory to see when they might have some more in stock. They tell me "the customer service department is not notified of any upcoming inventory changes in advance". Great....Yeah I'm on their notifications list for when ever they do come in. That's a screaming deal.

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:


One of the lightest and flattest 9mm pistols ever made, the PF-9™ is also one of the most concealable. This semi-automatic has a double action only firing mechanism, with an automatic hammer-lock safety. Developed from our highly successful P-11™ and P-3AT™ pistols, it retains many of their best features. Of course, as concealable as the PF-9 is, others won’t see them. MSRP: $356.36

Bought from a private seller at a used gun store. I know I overpaid a bit but that's okay. Since I bought it I've added a new recoil rod/spring, mag release and new takedown pin. I've purchased three other mags including the extended +1.

Just bought one brand new for $169.99 from Sportsmans Guide + $15 Transfer Fee. Blue/Black, One Mag SN: RR0Mxx

IMHO Instead of caving on the price, I wish Keltec would update the gun instead to better compete. I would have rather paid $100 more if they would upgrade the trigger group to Striker Fired, thus shortening the trigger pull and satisfying the number one complaint, then move to removable or go ahead and include fiber optic sights to get rid of the second most common thing wanted on the owners forum, and include a second mag with the +1 extension already installed competing directly with the Shield that comes with both mags, one ups the LC9s that has removable/upgradeable sights and is clearly worth more at retail than the EC9s that has fixed sights and no second mag).

I think the switch to a striker fired trigger would also allow them to bring the back of the slide down at a sharper angle and shorten the beaver tail, slightly reducing overall length and weight (picture the rear of a DB9), tightening the weight competition with DiamondBack and furthering the already considerable weight difference with the Rugers and Shield.

Oh, one more thing that goes almost without saying, Be sure to keep the accessory rail.

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.

The back is sloped like that for a snag-free draw from a pocket. My PM9 has the square back you speak of and it is a problem in comparison...Tom

Duncan's in North Wilksboro, NC had a PF-9 in the case for $219
I imagine cash would get it out the door a little better than that.
Good people down there too.
