KelTec has introduced the 9mm KelTec P15 pistol, the lightest and thinnest of its kind and the first striker-fire pistol from KelTec. The new P15 also features a unique 15-round extended magazine.

“KelTec invented subcompact, polymer handguns,” said Director of Sales and Marketing, Derek Kellgren, “so we wanted our first 9 mm striker-fired pistol to be worthy of the company George Kellgren founded 31 years ago.”

The new P15 also offers other quality and performance features carry pistol enthusiasts have come to expect from KelTec, like a fiber optic front sight, adjustable rear sight, ambidextrous safety and magazine release plus a gator grip texture that increases stability and makes for easy, accurate handling.

“While we pride ourselves on creating firearms that are unlike any others,” said Adrian Kellgren, Director of Industrial Production, “we also pride ourselves on innovation in production. That allows us to consistently produce innovative firearms that are also reliable, high quality, affordable firearms.”

Other significant KelTec pistol innovations included the P50 and the now retired PF9 and P11 pistols, the P11 being the first sub-compact, polymer, 9mm handgun for concealed carry. Also slated for retirement due to P15 innovation is the P3AT.

The P15 is scheduled to be featured at the 2022 SHOT Show in Las Vegas, January 18-22 and at the NRA Annual Meeting and Show in Houston, May 27-29.

 “The new P15, like any firearm in our long history, gives enthusiasts a firearm designed to be a unique improvement over what’s available and what they may own now,” concluded Matt Stanek, Marketing Manager. “The fun and excitement of creatin — that is why we come to work every day.”
