Since the 1990’s the Kel-Tec P-11 has been on the market and was the first pistol designed by George Kellgren, the founder of Kel-Tec Firearms, and is both innovative and inexpensive. The P-11 is a semi-automatic, locked-breech, double action only pistol, chambered for the 9mm Luger cartridge that is compact and lightweight—making it perfect for concealed carry, particularly as a pocket carry pistol. These also fit great in our Kel-Tec P11 concealed carry holsters.
The Kel-Tec P-11 is a small compact pistol. It is only 5.6 inches long, 4.3 inches tall, and one inch in width. If you have big pockets, it can be carried in your pocket with the perfect pocket holster. The P-11 weighs 14 ounces unloaded and around 22 ounces loaded with a magazine fully charged with 12 rounds of 9mm ammunition and a round in the chamber.
The rectangular frame is machined from solid aluminum and houses the firing mechanism. The trigger connects via a transfer bar to the hammer and operates in double action only. The hammer is trigger cocking, which means the gun can be dry fired without having to rack the slide to re-cock the action. The grip is made of the ultra high impact polymer. The P-11 comes from the factory with standard 10 round magazines. Capacity of the P-11 is either 10 rounds with an option of purchasing 12 round magazines.
The trigger pull on the P-11 weighs in around 9 pounds. This combined with the double action only design and the compact shape and size creates an ultra-safe carry pistol that fits well in the right Kel-Tec holsters. This pistol is lightweight but also packs a 9mm cartridge punch. Browse our Kel-Tec P11 Kydex holsters above.
