If you appreciate subcompact concealed carry pistols then no doubt you are aware of KelTec. Because of the company’s efforts, we get to enjoy the convenience of a subcompact polymer pistol. By the same token, KelTec enters SHOT Show with its first 9mm striker-fire pistol, the P15.
The KelTec P15 Striker-Fire 9mm Pistol
Hailed by KelTec as the lightest and thinnest of its kind, the P15 is also its first striker-fire pistol. Similarly, chambered in 9mm the P15 features a patent-pending 15 round extended magazine. As a result, comes a concealed carry option that virtually disappears when concealed but offers high capacity for defensive carry.
In addition, the P15 is full of quality and performance features that many have come to appreciate from KelTec. For example, a fiber optic front sight couples with an adjustable rear sight for enhanced targeting. Furthermore, an aggressive gator grip texture increases stability and retention while firing. Finally, an ambidextrous safety and magazine release makes the P15 perfect for both right- and left-handed shooters.
KelTec is no stranger to innovation, and it shows in the P15.
“While we pride ourselves on creating firearms that are unlike any others,” Adrian Kellgren, Director of Industrial Production, “we also pride ourselves on innovation in production. That allows us to consistently produce innovative firearms that are also reliable, high quality, affordable firearms.”
Over the years KelTec has brought such innovations as the P50 with its unique horizontal magazine. Not to mention retired models like the PF9 and P11 pistols. Likewise, the innovation of the P15 will soon also lead to the retirement of the P3AT.
“The new P15, like any firearm in our long history, gives enthusiasts a firearm designed to be a unique improvement over what’s available and what they may own now,” concluded Matt Stanek, Marketing Manager. “The fun and excitement of creating that is why we come to work every day.”
The KelTec P15 Striker-Fire 9mm pistol will be available after SHOT Show. The MSRP is not yet available. For more info, please visit KelTecWeapons.com.
