Introduced at the 2020 SHOT Show, the Kel-Tec P17 continues to be an exciting new model on the market, giving consumers a compact, 17-round rimfire handgun at a price that’s incredibly affordable.
Suggested retail pricing on the Kel-Tec P17 is $199, and for that, you get a gun that’s packed with a number of upgraded features compared to other budget-priced rimfires. In addition to the increased Magazine capacity, the pistol also features an ambidextrous safety selector, paddle-style magazine release and frame-mounted Picatinny accessory rail.
One of the highlights of the Kel-Tec P17 is the unique threaded muzzle arrangement. An adapter ships with each pistol, along with a disassembly wrench. Removing the included thread protector and installing the 1/2-28 t.p.i. threaded adapter makes it possible to add compatible muzzle devices and sound suppressors.
