Grand Powers Coming to the USA in Earnest

maxresdefault

Grand Power handguns are now available in the USA with more models coming soon. Eagle Imports (who also brings in Bersa among other brands) has teamed up with Slovakian company Grand Power to bring in  nearly their full line of handguns.

The Grand Power handguns are a fantastic list of features and components. They are DA/SA hammer-fired, feature fully ambidextrous controls, and use a rotating barrel delayed blowback operation. The few that previously made it into the USA under STI and other brands are highly sought-after for their rarity and many claim, their shootability.

The first models are for sale at Impact Guns. Others will be arriving soon. The full catalog of incoming handguns can be seen here.

You can bet we will ask for one for review. I am drooling to test out the XCaliber version.

  • What kind of mags do these take? CZ-75 patten, or something unique?

    • plingr2

      you can use cz 75 mags if you drill a hole to mag forehead

  • kgallerno

    These have been available here in Canada for a while now. Grand Power pistols are quality guns from the ones I have seen so far.

  • Vitsaus

    Based on that ad, I kept hearing “Slovakia is number 3 largest exporter of potassuim” for some reason, followed by “we’re next to @ssholes Uzbekistan.”

    • A

      Yeah, Slovakia is quite far from Kazakhstan.

      • SirOliverHumperdink

        Is Kazakhstan near Kardashian?

        • SD3

          Kinda. It’s in Eurpoe’s diseased crotch.

          • SirOliverHumperdink

            LOL

  • TheNotoriousIUD

    Fun Fact: Slovakia recently replaced all of the screen doors on their submarine force with fashionable double paned energy efficient French doors for stealth operations.

  • Ryan

    I hope they bring over the 10mm version.

  • Riot

    Good for them, I found out about their pistols a few years ago – it is good to see small companies innovating.

  • 1134

    I have owned a GP6, the STI import for 5 years and love the gun. I hope that if they start importing more they import more sight options. I would love for some Trijicon night sights.

  • Ian Goodman

    I am genuinely enjoying my X-cal. It is a very unique system and the pistols are constructed better than 99% of the duty pistols we commonly refer to as “quality guns”.

    DA/SA, everyone’s favorite. Cocked and Locked?

    • Not_a_Federal_Agent

      Why would you carry a DA/SA cocked and locked. At that point just get something that is SAO

      • iksnilol

        Regarding SAO handguns, can’t you just use the hammer as a safety? I mean, if the hammer is down and the gun is SAO then it can’t fire?

        • Not_a_Federal_Agent

          Depends on the SAO gun in question. However, it’s generally not a great idea. Series 70 1911’s aren’t drop safe as an example. Now… Are you carrying a Series 70? Probably not… But it’s beside the point. 1911’s in general, by design are much safer to carry cocked and locked than hammer down on a loaded chamber.

          • iksnilol

            I was thinking CZ 75, there is a SAO model of it. Best to not mess around I guess, just get a regular DA/SA with a safety.

          • mig1nc

            Yeah, I think back to Darren Wilson shooting Michael Brown, his weapon was out of battery for the first shot, and if he didn’t have the DA action to fall back to, he would never have gotten Michael Brown off of him. Not trying to be political, just looking at the tactical aspect of the situation.

          • iksnilol

            I am not a pistol guy, but can’t you just pull the hammer back with your thumb? Or do you need to rack the slide?

            Either way, DA/SA looks way more attractive now.

          • mig1nc

            It’s one of those “easier said then done” kind of things when under stress and your fine motor skills suffer.

          • mig1nc

            The 1911 also has the grip safety too, in addition to the manual.

  • The 2.75lb single action pull sounds great.

    • Giolli Joker

      It feels great to.
      I’ve dry fired it and it really seems to be a great trigger.

      • I’m curious to how it compares to the Sphinx, which has had the best SA trigger I’ve felt on a DA/SA pistol. If it’s comparable that would be awesome.

        • mig1nc

          I kind of had my heart set on getting a Sphinx until I saw this. Would really like to see a comparison. If the trigger is comparable, the rotating barrel action may make this the better option. And roughly $300 cheaper.

          • I’m curious how the rotating barrel effects semi auto recoil and reliability in general. The Sphinx is a fantastic piece, my friend has three and they are very accurate and the recoil is quite mild, even with his +p+ 124gr@1360fps hand loads.

  • iksnilol

    They have been available in Norway for a while. Good and affordable pistols from what I have seen. A bit more than half the price of a Glock, while including a suppressor and threaded barrel.
