    I own K100 mk.6
    Great gun, reliable, feeds anything - you can actualy slowly cycle the slide by hand and it still feeds the round! It should be lubed a bit though. Mags work in CZ75 SP-01.
    Its completely ambidextrous - slide release, mag release and safety. Field strip is simple and gun has no sharp edges - insluding sights - perfect for carry or manipulation. Spring is rather weak, so its super easy to rack the slide, but it doesnt cause any problems.
    Great gun overall. And has good reputation.
    Ive shot mk.7 and long Excalibur version - also great, for some reason the newer guns have 15rd. capacity mags - mine has 17rd. Dont know why as mags are reliable. While ergonomy resemles the one of CZ75, its actually bit bigger in hand.

    my guns:

    If you have more questions, i can dig up more info from Czech&Slovak forums.

    And also forgive me my Czechglish.

    How would you compare Glock 17 or SW MP9 vs Grand Power? Personally I don't like glock and mp9 at all.

    I like Glock 17 as long as I dont have to shoot it ;), I shot MP9 (rare gun here) only once few ears ago and whille it was quite fine guns, I like GP K100 better. I have to admit Cz75 (Phantom) and Duty fits my hand even better.
    And i should mention that K100 trigger reset is the shortest Ive ever experienced on pistol.

    I have read good reports on the Grand Power on a Canadian forum. The original GPs have been available there for some time. I was happy to learn they are now available in three sizes.

    I have a cz sp01 shadow and I'm used to the heavier weight. It might be hard to get use to it

    It looks like it's the same size as the .45 EAA Witness. Probably a bit slimmer, due to the plastic frame and lack of grip panels.

    thanks bohemus for that great info, good to know that the grip size is slightly bigger than a cz75, i have shot my friends cz TS (grip is bigger) which really felt better in my hands than my cz shadow. good to know that the cz75 mags will fit cause i have 3ea. 18 rounders that came with my cz shadow.
    just watched a video of the k100 dumping 1,250 rounds continously with no problems on june 2012. once received will get some close up pics, and range results:)

    ifit: CZ mags doesnt work in K100, but K100 mags (sometimes) fit SP-01.
    K100 mags have conventional slot on side just as cz75 has, but they need anoher slot on front side of the mag - its ambidextrous release.
    It may be possible to convert CZ mags to fit K100, but I think it doesnt worth the effort.

    I have a STI GP6c wonderful gun very accurate and the best SA trigger of any conventional DA/SA. I hate the ergos on a Glock. M&Ps have better ergos but I actually like the trigger on the SR9 better.

    finally picked up the gp k100 today w/some range results, fits like a glove, though have not tried any of the 3 other back straps offered. trigger is nice estimating around 4lbs. some pics of the gun and range results

    I have got the K100 in 2007; if I remember correctly and shortly afterwards have turned it into my EDC, replacing a CZ 2075 RAMI. That was still the MK6 „frame“. There was a detail that needed a simple tweaking – the slide catch pin was moving out from time to time. The sights are set for a POI 4´´ about the POA at 25 meters (therefore the slightly high POI above) what can be changed, if one wishes so, as Grand Power offers the FS in 3 difrent heights. I, personally, opted for the Dynamic type rear sight and a fiber optic front sight.
    Last July I got an offer to have the polymer frame changed for MK7 for free, so now I have a hybrid.
    BTW, the Grand Power has the .45 ACP model ready. I had a chance to test it and can say that due to the rotational locking system the recoil was very soft. The last time I spoke with the head of the company they were waiting only for the magazines. I was also told that the .40 S&W model will follow soon as the modification of the steel container and poly frame once they have the .45 is not too complicated.

    Thanks for sharing. I knew they made good bread and cheese but who knew interesting handguns were also made there? Having had PA-15 I'm sold on rotating barrel principle and am going have to look at that .45ACP they came up with.

    Sti gp6 aka k100

    I own both a GP6 as well as a few K100s. Aside from the marking on the slide, and magazine capacity,they are the exact same gun. These pistols are easily the best kept secret in the handgun world. If you own more than one nine, do yourself a favor, sell one and buy one of these. They are some of the best performing pistols you will find at any price range. I have also shot, owned and/or handled hi powers and clones, glocks, CZ 75s, Eaa witness's, smith 9mms, beretta 92s and ninety-twos, P99s, and then some. Only the CZ(w/trigger work) can perform as well. In the hands of even a novice shooter, the SA trigger is light and easy to control, lending itself to awesome accuracy. Now that century has distribution rights, the price has dropped significantly but I bet it will shoot right back up as soon as people realize the quality of this firearm. The only shortcoming of this gun may be that it has an akward takedown release but otherwise this pistol is a thing of beauty. Buy one and you won't be disappointed!

    It was probably determined that 17 round magazines require over compressing the spring.

    The make nice leather goods, bread and have fine women so there is no reason their guns shouldn't be very good. Remember Croatian HS2000 which would not sell for about $250. Now it's called Springfield XD and many think it's best thing since sliced bread. Slovakia isn't much different then Croatia except because of Czecho----Slovakia most here know it's in Europe.

    They do not compare. At all.

    For all their redeeming qualities, both the Glock and the M&P are generic spongy triggered striker fired pistols. The K100 is a unique hammer fired pistol with an absurdly light, creep free and crisp single action trigger and a smooth mild double action pull.

    The Reliability and service life of the K100 are beyond repute. Anyone who does any research into Grand Powers prototype testing will be stunned at the round counts racked up by these guns. Reliability and durability are without question.

    For the price you pay for these guns, you are stealing them.

    Thanks for the close up pictures--they look pristine, with excellent build quality. They don't seem to be decorated with lots of internal tool marks like my CZs... ;)

    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!
