How To Disassemble The Kel-Tec P-11 9mm Pistol




What do you think about this video?

FJ DUBYA: I just bought my 2nd P11, this time a stainless steel one. And I'm not even going to get rid of my blued one now! I really like this model of pistol and I find it deserves far more credit than alot people give it. So many people report problems out of the box and say they want to throw it out. I have had NO problems with either of mine. And because the 9mm ammo is cheaper than .45ACP, I often shoot these guns more than my médium frame .45, so the P11'a caught up to the .45 quickly is terms of number of rounds shot, and they ended up having far fewer failures to eject or fire. I don't undertsand why trash the trigger of the P11 in the reviews. Sure, there are guns with better triggers. The P11 has a very long crisp pull before the hammer drops. But it's not a problem to squeeze off a few mags in rapid fire with this, really. It wouldn't be an issue if I was shooting at one or two perpetrators in self-defense. I suppose if I was defending the Alamo, maybe I'd want something smoother. For my own personal defense in most situations, I can't complain. Some people like the more refined PF9 than the P11. The PF9 is the nephew of the P11, and takes about 4 rounds less of 9mm Luger than the P11. Thanks, but I'll take the P11, less refined or not. I think it's a badass Little gun for the money, and it also taked S&W model 59 mags, which come with as much as 30 rounds. Although the P11 has more failures with mags larger than 12, the 30 round mags have the potential to turn your P11 into a tiny powerhouse that could send a Glock running home with it's tail between its legs....and do it for less than half the cost. The optional belt clip is dream if you're not carrying against bare skin. You can basically forget about a holster that way. Hell, I could put one belt clip on for left-handed carry, and one on my 2nd P11 for right-handed carry, and two very manageable 9mm that I could pull out simultaneously. If you're ambidextrous like me, you might be pretty scary (not to mention deadly) with a P11 in each hand, taking on multiple assailants at once. I understand why the P11 is not considered a top-gear pistol. The finish SUCKS, unless you get the stainless model. You'll want to soup up your P11 and customize it a little if you have one, maybe get a Hogue grip for it, and maybe replace the polymer guide rod with a steel or titanium one. But when all is said and done, I think you'll have a great little CCW that you'll hardly notice is there when carrying, yet has enough fire-power and utilitarian mojo to roll with the big boys.

Robert Harry: Thanks

Dustin Fancher: I just picked up one today at a pawn shop. It was labeled as a PF9 but when I got home found it is a PF11. Oh well. As long as it works it will still do what I need! 

Andre Brundridge: I just noticed the the Sccy CPX-2 is nearly identical to the P-11

krazy45cat: Super .

apman0000: i would agree that it's a good value due to the low price point but for conceal carry i'll stick with reliable and i mean REALIABLE i want to be damn sure it goes bang every time if i might need it to save my life someday so i'll stick with my S&W J frame and my glock 26, kel tech just doesn't inspire me with a feeling of security and reliability that i want from a carry piece. not bad for the money but if my life depends on it i'll spend a few more $. good video though

xxBleedxxLikexxMexx: thanks for the video! this helped me strip my gun to clean it, I really like these Kel tec 9's. I am thinking about actually going out to buy a second one just to have a spare handy since they are so inexpensive. But my next P11 is gonna be the two tone model with the stainless slide. =D

TriggerJunkie: Does anybody who owns one of these, like I do, have the problem with the 10-round magazine not dropping freely? I have a couple of S&W 59 series 15 round MecGar mags that drop just fine.

airdude12345: How many mags does the p11 come with and is the mag release reversible?

KD8DHH: Nice Video!....I own a KT P11 and love it! Glad to see some reviews of less expensive pistols.....keeep em' coming...Thanks

Nick Giaq: thank you for making this video, i was having a lot of trouble with the takedown, but this helped clear it up for me.

TheHumanpopsicle: @amote123123 think of a gun like a condom.better to have it and not need it,than need it and not have it.

lancerooke: Thank you for posting this video! It was very helpful.

sootch00: @TGeiger85 It's fine to shoot about 50 rds before it starts getting a little uncomfortable. You may have different results. It's not bad, it just starts to rub, I think it's a great pistol for CCW. Thanks~

USNERDOC: Don - Well done as always. I like your focus, attention to detail, and of course a bit of shooting at the end. 5 STARS! HAAPY THANKSGIVING!

WaywardAce: I have one of these ...... never had a problem .... it's perfect for ccw. Great Vid as usual .

Mark Barton: Just got my P-11 today. Mine must need broken in because it doesn't slide nearly as easily as shown. This vid was very helpful for when I break it down after the first range visit. Thanks

Catservative: @sootch00 I own a p-11 and had no problem with accuracy out to 25 yrds. great gun!

Machi74005: My father owns a P-11 for his conceal carry option. It was relatively inexpensive and he likes it as well. I believe he has never had a single malfunction with it in practice.

TheYzkidpimp12: whats the difference between the pf-9 and the p-11???

heat45jc: The claim was that the P-11 was the smallest and lightest 10+1 capacity 9x19mm. The smallest single stack semi-automatic 9x19mm would have to be the Robaugh R9.

Alibi1986: Just bought one today. Nice little pistol but was having problems prying out the take-down pin. Double checked the manuals instruction via your video and I was doing it right, it was just really stuck in there. The factory storage/assembly lube must have dried or something but its easy to take down now. I think I'm going to get a Hogue rubber slide-on grip, magazine extension, and metal recoil rod and call it a day (I just can't leave well-enough alone I guess). Can't wait to try it out!

Kenny KstylesGamer: to protect yourself from criminals.

jared Cooksey: This was a big help when i first got my p-11. Any ideas where you can get the .40 cal conversion kit for it?

dumb7890: @TGeiger85 50 rounds and both my hands hurt but was fun

duvaldrummer: like always, great review!

RA59: @TGeiger85 I found that it was really helpful to slip a Houge Jr. grip on it.

ZeroCoolStar: Very nice videos. Extremely clear, easy to understand and you have the perfect narration voice. I bought my first pistol today It was a (Kel Tech 9mm P 11 Luger) and I learned how to dissemble and reassemble my weapon in about all of 2 minuets thanks to your video.. I had a little trouble with the guide rod of course but eventually got it Keep up the good work with the videos!

tdawgee: I Have A kel Tec pf9 ----I Love It ---It's Awesome

stablepar: very helpful. thanks

DrTacTiC00L: good video. it just got one prosessing...cool!!

911feltner911: if you get the metal guide rod its really tough to get the rod and spring in.great vid 5*s

cleanstone141: good vid sooch

sootch00: @amote123123 I can't answer that for you. Check out my "Why I Own a Gun" video series for my reasons for owing a gun. Thanks~

blkrebs: @amote123123 Because a police officer is too heavy to carry LOL

BroPaul: Great review! I almost bought one of those for a lighter carry option, but was put off when they guy at the store couldn't show me how to field strip it...and an LEO that was there couldn't figure it out either!

crwireman254: @sootch00 mine has 2 springs on the guide rod. Normal?

oreandra: PF9 version isn't bad to shoot at all. I'd heard that it was rough on the hand too, but only when I held it improperly did I have any trouble and I sent a good 100 rounds down. The web of the thumb will get calloused lightly, but there was no soreness. It's a loud little thing.

danbowski40: Great review Don and have a Happy Thanksgiving my friend.

mysacredhonor: nice gun.. is it accurate? great video as usual

ihartpills: Thank you for this video!!! I love love love my P11, its a great safety, and concealed carry weapon, I am pretty solid at 15 yards like 3in groups..... the trigger pull is a bit much for me; but once lightened its bomb!!!!

PestControl02: thanks for the video. I bought one of these yesterday...it has a terrible rattle in the magazine when fully loaded...It stops if I only load 9 rounds? wtf? I wrote Kel Tec, hopefully they'll repair or replace

SoundOfSilenceWolf: there are numerous reasons for a gun, one they are fun to shoot but that is besides the point two, for protecting your family, friends, home, co-workers, and those who are around you and your home, and three for hunting.

Julius Gillmore: Great video, very helpful. A buddy of mine has the KT P11 and didn't know how to disassemble the pistol to clean it properly. Thanks again for a great video

MAC Cap: Great vid!! I have had this gun since 1996, it works well for a 14 oz. 9mm..

stupidhurts04: Great video! Very helpful! Thank you!

julaer: Nice video & great info .

budtoken: I am going to sell my Kel Tec P11 to the gun store tomorrow. It is about 5 years old, I've probably shot about 500 rounds through it over the years. I originally paid 260 dollars for it. I'm wondering what I should try to get for it/what to expect to be offered. Any opinions or suggestions on how much I should sell it for?

mejt223 .Michael Casey: sweet

Gary Jordan: Excellent work my friend!
