KelTec always has something creative up its sleeve. As much as people often want to hate on the Florida-based company, you can’t say they make boring guns. As a fellow Florida man, I can’t help but think it’s something in our drinking water that makes their weapons so appealing to me. This year, we saw two MP7-like weapons, one from Tommy Tactical and another from PSA, but you might have missed the MP7 we have at home that was chilling at the KelTec booth.

The MP7 We Have At Home

It wasn’t a new gun, but one of their existing models that sat at the core of the oddball MP7 wannabe. The gun itself was a CP33, if you are unfamiliar with the CP33 it’s a .22 LR handgun with a massive magazine and a fairly space-age gun appearance. It’s often a joke that calibers like 4.6×33 and 5.7x28mm are hyped up .22s, but in the case of this MP7 wannabe, it’s an actual .22 LR.

Wrapped around the CP33 sits a kit from Farrow Tech. I’m not very familiar with the brand, but their kit on the CP33 was eye-catching enough to make me do a double-take. After a brief explanation and a little time to get my grubby hands on the gun, I was pretty impressed.

The kit consists mainly of a shroud that attaches over the CP33 and gives the gun a very distinct appearance. The ejection port is nice and large to ensure clear and consistent ejection. The shroud offers a full-length optics rail for optics and accessories. The shroud also has a few M-LOK slots for additional accessories. The bottom portion even has a hand stop to prevent getting a dose of pain when your sweaty hand inevitably slips.

The brace is supported by two metal arms, and it ejects with the press of a button. The brace collapses to form a very tight and small kit. There is also an optional magazine extension to really top off that MP7 look. The Farrow Tech kit is basically a kit car for a rimfire. The CP33 is already a fairly fun gun, and I can’t help but feel this kit would improve that fun factor.

Price-wise, the kit sits anywhere from $300 to $500, depending on your options. This is quite expensive to mount to a gun that costs about the same as the kit. I don’t own a CP33, but the kit has me eyeing one. Do I need another rimfire? Especially an expensive one? Probably not, but I sure as heck want it.

    • Given more time I wouldn’t be surprised if this format is adapted across several calibers/companies with a variety of features and build quality. A “why not” sort of idea to get things started, maybe. Or a interesting flip either way fun to see.

  1. It actually looks like a cross from: Steyr TMP and HK MP7. Meh 22 LR is not interesting to me. 9×19 or 5.7 would be nice. 5.7 is cool if you shoot full power loads. Not those “lite” loads. They done same shit with 5.7 as with 10mm in old days. Killed the original caliber then talk how mad is it.

  2. This is pointless. I have a CP33, and it’s already “PDWish” (continuous, nonreciprocating aluminum railed upper).

    What they need to do is make a pistol or SBR version of the CMR-30 (the PMR-30 is a conventional slide pistol).

  3. I built my own CP33 with a brace three years ago and also have a .22 suppressor and a red dot on it. It’s a tack driver. At 25 feet I can put every shot in the center of a 3 in target if I take my time and can rapid fire and keep it in the 3 inch target. I can’t tell you how may people have come up to me and ask what it is. I let most of them shoot it and they can’t believe it. It’s also the only gun my wife has shot and actually enjoyed it. A couple of people with a lot more range time than me have said this would be a great bedroom gun. 33 rounds of HV .22 LR surpressed is not something an intruder would laugh at.

  4. Kel Tec is like post modern art: weird for the sake of weird.

    The grip on the cp33 is hideous, falling away from your fingers. I feel like it was designed for a dolphin with flippers.

    Somebody needs to reproduce the Tec-9 or Swedish K these days.
