    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.

    Question???

    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...

    I've read they're big in the European competition community, and they're built to the same quality as Caniks, Stoegers, and Tanfoglios.

    For a poly framed gun, full size, I like the Witness in 9. Hard to beat, cheaper than the Grand. But...I like that these Turkish bangers are coming chrome lined.

    We are getting hammered here, too. Tornado warnings tonight, freezing rain tomorrow. Oof.

    I hope you enjoy it and the price is right. Good luck sir!

    samcade, let us know your honest opinion on the pistol...and see if it comes close to this review i found, this model is sti gp6 but basically the same gun. some people who have shot it says the trigger is...ok, and some says it too snappy, while i tend to disagree, i agree on hundred percent with this video because the accuracy and trigger and also recoil is the highpoints of this handgun mentioned

    I'll give my 2 cents. I have an STI GP6 (not sure which version).

    The trigger is well above average for a service grade pistol. Better than any SIG, H&K, CZ, etc. that I've shot (not comparing it to Glocks and the like as they're totally different triggerwise). Short reset. I think they may have improved it even more on the later versions.

    Accuracy is very good. Definitely above average. One of the more accurate 9mms I have.

    I don't get the snappy thing at all. I find the recoil impulse smooth and controllable. Definitely different than Browning style pistols (in a good way).

    They're definitely a quality pistol. You can see it in the materials, fit and finish. I think a few things needed tweaked, and in fact they may have already been as I have an older version. I have had a couple issues with mine. Specifically the magazines don't lock in correctly. You have to tilt them toward the front or rear to get them to lock. The magazine release is also overly hard to push (very well might be related to the magazines not locking in). There's also an issue with the trigger in that if you hand rack the slide, it doesn't always push the hammer down far enough to catch on the sear. It doesn't affect the cycling of the pistol, just that when you hand rack the slide the hammer ends up at half-cock notch.
