    They are great shooters for sure! The only negative I see in the design and it's minor is the flex in the dust cover up front. The way the takedown works the front of the trigger guard goes up through the dust cover and locks the action in place. To release the action you pull down on the trigger guard and this releases the lug. This design needs a large hole in the dust cover which weakens the forward part where the accessory rail is. Heavier accessories on the rail will stress out the frame up front in my opinion.
    Not a big deal if you aren't using or planning on using the rail.
    I've heard that with the upcoming .40 they've made changes to the design and it looks like it might have a more glock like take down release switch.
    The takedown on the GrandPowers is a bit different and the barrel needs to be seated correctly as it goes back together......not a huge deal but different.
    I was chasing golf balls around at 20 -25 yards offhand pretty regularly on my first range session!

    These look like they are great pistols which I won't be seeing here in california. :banghead: So being that these guns are imported by century is anyone going to provide parts and service or are they "orphans" where if something breaks the gun becomes a paper weight?

    I wouldn't worry too much about spare parts. These were originally imported and distributed by STI. I think grand power would help out as well. Funny, 2 weeks ago I bought 3 of them. Now JG shows only 1 left in stock. As the saying goes, "if you snooze, you lose". The GP6 also has the cooler looking skeletonized hammer but I need to research the mag capacity. I'm really thinking they are the original 17rdrs advertised as 15s. I'll check that out tonight and test that theory.

    This is not a Bersa or a Kel Tec.

    When i called STI a few months back, their gunsmith told me they had plenty of parts in stock to service the pistols they had sold.

    Combine that with a 1,000,000 rounds fired count in their production prototype.

    Im not worried. I doubt i will ever shoot enough rounds to make my GP6 blink.

    What im concerned with is mags. $60 for the STI 17 and 20 rounders is hella lame. I only have one of each. Im hoping Century will import some compatible mags and bring the price down.

    The Grand Power released the .40 S&W and .45ACP models to the market recently. They are a bit heavier and longer than the Mk7 (209 mm, 880g for the .40S&W and 209 mm, 850 g for the .45ACP vs 202mm/820g for the Mk7 in 9x19 mm). The new models also use a new dismantling catch.

    How is after market support? Who handles warranty issues? Are parts easily found and purchased if needed?

    Shot the K100 last Friday. It was ok.

    Not, in anyway, better than a CZ. You're putting one pistol up against an entire line.

    It was more comfortable than the P07, but a CZ75 it is not. Was not impressed ergonomic ally, found it unbalanced, and snappy. I'd buy one, but find $470 after taxes and/or shipping too high a price. If it goes sub-$350, we can talk.

    Look at EAA Witnesses or Canik 55 for clones.

    wen to the range w/couple of firearms, and decided to give the gpk100 a go at 25y for the first time, with a little more practice i think i can shrink them groups:)

    Where's hole #10?

    Edit: Is that it in the low throat region? If so, good shooting IFIT!

    Is this pistol a clone of anything? I really like the look of the Grand Power, though, to be honest, only from pictures. Is this pistol a CZ clone? Or is it more of an original design?

    I agree with Meanmr, for a CZ clone, Tanfoglio (EAA) or a Turkish made clone seems to be the way to go. Really, for a quality handgun clone of most anything, "Turk" made is hard to beat right now. I digress..

    The Grand Power appears to me to be more or less it's own thing (maybe with a little bit of CZ thrown in, which IMO is never a bad thing)

    At $350.00 up to maybe $400.00 otd, I'd be a buyer for sure. Not sure at the current price, but maybe...
