The Kel-Tec PF-9 is a compact, polymer semi-automatic pistol produced by Kel-Tec CNC Industries, Incorporated of the United States (Florida). Its design is from George Kellgren and its formal introduction occurred during 2006. Due to its compact dimensions, the gun has become a popular choice for concealed-carry in both civilian and security / law enforcement circles. It is chambered for the equally-popular 9x19mm Parabellum pistol cartridge and fires through a standard short-recoil action, fed by a seven-round detachable box magazine.
In many respects the PF-9 is a largely traditional semi-automatic sidearm save for its handy carry size and slim shape. Overall weight is just 12.7 ounces and overall length is 5.85 inches (the barrel measures 3.1 inches long). Various color finishes are available to suit customer tastes.
