The new KelTec P17 has more packed into a .22 than you’ve encountered before.
When most people think about what they want in a .22LR pistol, it’s almost always going to involve extra accessories, aftermarket parts, and a few customizations to make it perfect. It’s because most .22s are pretty run of the mill, especially if you’re trying to keep the price down.
KelTec applied their expertise to this common issue and the resulting P17 handgun appears to be an excellent way to get the gun you want without paying dearly for all the extra bells and whistles.
The P17 is less than 14-ounces fully loaded and barely longer than a dollar bill. That makes it concealable for pretty much anyone. The threaded barrel, Picatinny-style accessory rail, ambidextrous safety, ambidextrous magazine release and three 16-round magazines come standard. To us, that’s a ton of value included in such a small package.
An exceptional trigger, fiber optic front sight, and adjustable rear sight help you extend the range and improve the accuracy of your shot, making the P17 an ideal training gun, introductory firearm, and reliable tack driver.
The MSRP KelTec is listing for the P17 is $199, and that’s about as good as you could imagine for a gun like this.
