    New PF-9 Concern

    Been waiting for my chance to get a look at a PF-9. My local dealer finally got another one in and I decided to grab it while I could. He'd been selling the few he'd gotten in almost immediately. Disassembled it today to give it a good cleaning and lube before trying it out and found something that has me concerned. Looked like corrosion inside the top of the slide at first but after taking some cleaner to it it looks like maybe it's a problem with the blueing. I'm really not sure what it is but it doesn't look good. Here's a couple of pics I took before I touched it. It doesn't look too much different after cleaning. Maybe someone can tell me if theirs looked like this:

    Looks like rust? Is it? They sure have had a lot of problems with the PF-9. Of corse they had a lot of problems with the P-3AT there for about the first year it was out. Think I'll wait till next year before I even look at one. Good luck with yours.

    I agree with Baldy and plan on waiting a year before getting one

    That looks like a slide that didn't get blued or heat treated properly!!!
    It almost looks like it somehow got wet before it was put together!!
    Send it in. I would not shoot it!! I'd just pack it up and send it in per the instructions in your manual. I would also call them and tell them what is wrong and to expect shipment!! Make sure you include a copy of your receipt with it when you ship it!!!

    Already contacted them and got a UPS call tag. It'll be on the way back to Kel-Tec within a week.

    I've seen the simualr problem for other web sites with the PF-9. I was thinking about that one for a while until I researched and saw too many problems for my liking. Maybe in a yeare or two I'll change my mind.

    Here's the update. Better late than never.
    Got it back within a week. New slide and they upgraded the barrel to the one with the new feed ramp. No charge. Had another issue after that with the takedown pin walking out on it's own a couple of times. New pin took care of that. About 800 rounds so far without any more problems other than finding a SD ammo it liked. Golden Sabres feed reliably. I'm happy with it.

    Back Again

    It's going back again. Trigger spring disconnected from the trigger bar. Pretty common problem it seems. I fixed it but sending it in anyway for a new trigger bar with the deeper trigger spring groove. I hear there's one available.

    I just got a PF9.
    I have 200 rounds through it and, so far, it seems to be OK.

    Hmmmm

    I just today traded a Taurus 650B for a slightly used PF-9. The Kel-Tec's owner said he hadn't had it long, and decided he wanted a snubby instead. I wanted a lighter carry weapon. This PF-9 looks good, but I haven't fired or disassembled it yet. Dead of winter here, and the closet indoor range is 50 miles away. I'll try to get there later this week, or maybe I'll take it to the woods just for a quick test. First, I guess I'll take it apart this afternoon for an inspection.

    I'm hoping this gun is a later gen. I see the warranty will be of no help to me, not being the original owner. (Taurus' warranty is MUCH better!)

    I have noticed that the rear sight of mine is set off center. I'm hoping it needs to be centered once I start firing it. Otherwise, an off-center sight suggests to me that things are a little wonky with this gun.

    Skipped over the PF9...

    Bought a P11!!! Thin enough for me, better history, very light, rear-pocket-packable, and 10+1.

    $250 OTD

    So far... 50 rounds of UMC 9mm... ZERO FTF, and 3" groups all day at 7M!!!

    Love it so far

    Jeff,

    There is a Kel-Tec 12 round mag that fits the P11 on the Kel-Tec web page, part#P11-36LE Blue (P11 only, 12 rounds). Not sure how they get the 12 round mag to fit where the original 10 round mag fits and still fit flush on the bottom of the grip as it appears it does. Would have been nice to include the 12 round mag as the original if it indead fits flush. I have a 15 round S&W 5900 series Mag with the mag spacer as my spare carry mag and if I can get the 12 round Kel-Tec mag as my in-gun carry mag that will give me a a few more rounds on hand for a CC gun this size and weight, and 9mm too, that is great!
