Hello all you HR's I'm a new member and I was thrilled to find a web site as the THR while surfing the web . I'm a gun nut you could say . I own several rifles, shot guns and hand gun's. I just got a P-11 Kel-Tec and would like to know a little about it . It had belong to my sister who had gotten it new several years ago. In fact 1997 I think the sale slip was for 259 and some change. What would it be worth today ? And also is it a reliable auto ? Its a 9mm luger . If anyone can tell me something about this peace ? I would appreciate.......skooter

You can get a new P-11 for $269 or less in most places so it's probably worth something around +- $150 - $180. I have one and it is very reliable. It's a great value pistol. See the KTOG forum for detailed information:

Around here, they are $270-$290 new . Used blue models in good condition go for ~$200. Hard chrome, add ~$20. My sister pickud up a HC in 98% cond. for $225 about 2 months ago.

And also is it a reliable auto?

Yes. IMO, Kel-Tec's are one of the best guns out there for the money. I have a P3AT, a P-32 and a PLR-16. I will be getting a PF-9 in hard chrome when they hit the dealer shelves here.

For all of the KelTec info your little heart might desire go to:

www.KTOG.com (best)
www.KTRange.com (good)
www.Bersatalk.com (KelTec section/OK)

I have a P11 & a P32. Both are excellent. I hope to get a new PF-9 as soon as they become available locally.

Best Wishes,

Great little guns. They sell for sell for $250 around here and i sold mine for $200 after I had the slide melted and nickel plated. They flat out dissapear when used with the Kel-Tec belt clip. I liked mine a lot but the trigger pull was just way to long to tolerate when practicing at the range even with the trigger shoe. i ended up selling mine and opting for J frame S&W.

KelTec uses Smith&Wesson double stack mags, if you want 15, 20 or 30 rounds from a small package

Hi skooter, first off use this link

There is no ktog.com and that link tries to download something my Mcafee did not like!

As far as the P11, as you can see- it is what it is :)
You asked for an opinion so here is my .02:

It is very light, heavy DA trigger, probably the most reliable KT model for a pistol, in a good caliber- 9mm, good mechanical accuracy under 20 yds, great service and parts support, and is not for everyone as far as trigger pull and felt recoil. (load a snap cap and try it)
It is not a target gun and takes some practice to master the trigger pull and stay on target. I mention this as a factor if you are not familiar with polymer subcompacts. Really a CCW gun and behaves best with 115-124 gr ammo. But some 124gr will misfeed in some and require some tweaking.
Really good bargain for the $$$, lots of info on the KTOG site.

Thanks all of you have been very helpful . I will hang onto this P-11 for sometime. It is as you guys say . The only thing I dislike is like most of you have said. The trigger pull. thanks again ....skooter.......

Skooter, there are mods that can be done to slightly shorten the trigger pull; however, I've gotten quite used to mine and it doesn't bother me any more. Just look at it as a built-in safety device, a'la UN-hair-trigger!

I carry mine most of the time in an ankle holster. It shoots CCI shot loads as well, when I'm working in the garden or yard...it'll turn a snake or rat inside out! I've also found that autos can be finicky about ammo- I've used Silver Bear hollow points with never a misfeed, but it tries to hang on HydraShocks. My P11 is my primary carry weapon, my secondary is a S & W Model 66 4" .357...big difference!

Since the sunset of Klinton mag ban, you can buy a flush fitting Kel-Tec 12-rounnd (formerly LEO) magazine making that pistol a P-13. While I love to shoot my Glocks, my daily carry away from home is a 1995 Kel-Tec P-11.
