Grand Power K22s

Perhaps you remember our review of the Grand Power’s X-Calibur. While not without a few flaws, Jon Wayne Taylor was impressed by the affordable Slovakian race gun’s performance. Based on that experience, we take the news of Eagle Imports’ plans to bring three new steel-framed Grand Power guns to market next year as a good thing. The trio includes a full-size .22LR trainer, a .22LR competition pistol along with a .380 12+1 sub-compact EDC gun. You’ll want to continue reading the press release below . . .

23 Responses to New From Grand Power: K22S, K22 X-TRIM and CP380 Pistols

  1. Despite the irony of .22 being an “affordable training caliber”, I’d be interested to see if they come as shown with a 1/2-28 threaded barrel. Also, I know .22 semi auto pistols are finiky, but why can’t someone figure out a way to stuff more than 10 rounds in these things?!

    • function dictates form, and ever since John Moses Browning passed, the world has become a uglier place. Unless you can afford custom guns that cost more than a down payment for a Lambo.

  2. Hmm, could use another .380 pistol since gave my sister-in-law my Bersa Thunder .380 and still have some rounds leftover.

    • I thought it was the 92, CZ, and Ruger’s new RAP, but yeah.

      I mean, I don’t hate it, but it’s clearly just the result of throwing multiple handguns into the same woodchipper and gluing the parts that come out back together.

  3. Grand Power makes excellent pistols. The X Calibur with vented slide is a work of art. Their factory is state of the art and these are vastly superior to any Turkish guns. Try one you will be impressed.

  4. I’ve been wanting to try one of these things since I found out about them last year. If the quality is as good as their former countrymen across the border, then they should be pretty good.

    • Your right I remember reading about difficulties importing .380, but it also has to do with size. The TCP was a no go, hence made here. Or maybe they make it in .22 and swap the barrel and mags when it gets here?

  5. How is it that the X-Trim model has the same length barrel as the S version but is .6″ shorter? (Must be magic.) Or that it has all of those fancy vents on the slide but weighs .6 oz more? (More magic.) And costs $260 more when all it has besides the vents is a target rear sight? I am so confused.

  6. So THAT’S what passes for a 380 sub-compact in Europe? Heavy,large and 1.4″ thick-got it. Grand alright…7″ long-wow.

    • Grand Power doesnt offer any subcompact lightweight carry pistols, but their mid size and full size in 9MM and 40SW are excellent quality pieces.

  7. I suspect the form the slide takes has more to do with reducing mass so that it will function with 22 lr than imitating a Beretta. The CZ Kadet accomplishes this by only having a portion of the slide move. I’ll take a steel slide like that one all day every day over the pot metal slides you find in the likes of the P22 and Mosquito. I have no doubt the K22S is far and away a superior pistol to the aforementioned pot metal turds. Grand Power makes solid quality pistols.

    Regarding the 380, I suspect that pistol was created for markets other than the US (see Glock 25 for a similar gun). There are countries where you’re not allowed to have pistols in military calibers.
