KelTec™ introduces P15™ striker-fire pistol: lightest and thinnest of its kind

How does KelTec™ follow up a 30th Anniversary of game-changing firearms innovation in 2021? By kicking off 2022 with the introduction of its 9 mm KelTec P15™ pistol, the lightest and thinnest of its kind and the first striker-fire pistol from KelTec. As another first, the new P15 features a unique, patent pending, 15 round extended magazine.

KelTec invented subcompact, polymer handguns so we wanted our first 9 mm striker-fired pistol to be worthy of the company George Kellgren founded 31 years ago.

Derek Kellgren, Director of Sales and Marketing

The new P15 also offers other quality and performance features carry pistol enthusiasts have come to expect from KelTec, like a fiber optic front sight, adjustable rear sight, ambidextrous safety and magazine release plus a gator grip texture that increases stability and makes for easy, accurate handling.

While we pride ourselves on creating firearms that are unlike any others we also pride ourselves on innovation in production. That allows us to consistently produce innovative firearms that are also reliable, high quality, affordable firearms.

Adrian Kellgren, Director of Industrial Production

Other significant KelTec pistol innovations included the new P50 pistol and the now retired PF9™ and P11™ pistols, the P11 being first sub-compact, polymer, 9 mm handgun for concealed carry. Also slated for retirement due to P15 innovation is the P3AT™.

The P15 is currently scheduled to be featured at the 2022 SHOT Show in Las Vegas, January 18-22 and at the NRA Annual Meeting and Show in Houston, May 27-29.

The new P15, like any firearm in our long history, gives enthusiasts a firearm designed to be a unique improvement over what’s available and what they may own now. The fun and excitement of creating that is why we come to work every day.
