The KelTec P17! A Jewel of Value!
There really isn’t much you can buy these days under $250 and expect quality and craftsmanship all at the same time. Well, KelTec has totally accomplished this with the build of the P17 22LR handgun. Not only is the little thing impressive, but it is also an absolute performer!
The P17 operates on a straight blowback system and has a very nice trigger coming in at just under 3lbs. The empty weight of 10.9 ounces also makes this one of the lightest handguns to ever be produced. KelTec has been known in the past to totally think outside the box. Creating a 22LR handgun is not something that is so far out of the norm, and to be honest with you, I feel like KelTec has added just the right number of bells and whistles to the P17 to make it a must-have purchase.
The P17 literally ate every round of ammo we wanted to throw in it. It operated the best on the CCI mini mags in my opinion, but it cycled just fine with standard Federal and Remington as well. The P17 comes with a threaded barrel for suppressed shooting if you prefer (and I would also prefer).
So many little features have been added to make this an exceptional little gun. I love the large glow front sights, and the addition of a front rail leaves you room for weapon-mounted light or laser…or both! I love the fact that this handgun has a full-sized grip for us guys with big hands. It just feels good in your hand, and that makes shooting it even more enjoyable. Two magazines, that hold 16 rounds each, come with the P17 in the box.

All and all the KelTec P17 is one of those handguns that if you don’t buy it, you will always regret it. So do yourself a favor and pick yourself up today!
