Grand Power Q100 Now Available in US

Grand Power Q100

Described by the company as a “all-purpose gun,” Eagle Imports announced that the Grand Power Q100 handgun was now shipping to dealersĀ in the United States of America.

The Q100 is a double action only (DAO) striker fired pistol that uses the rotary locking system used in the company’s popular K100 model. Rotating barrel systems are said to reduce muzzle rise and improve accuracy as compared to a traditional Browning design. Beretta uses a similar rotating barrel design in the PX4 series of firearms.

It is available in 9mm and has a stainless steel chassis that sits in a polymer grip frame. Grand Power makes no claims of modularity (like the SIG P320 system,) so I assume the chassis is permanently mounted in the grip in a manner similar to the M&P series of handguns from Smith & Wesson. This system would appear to offer the weight reduction associated with polymer use, but with the additional strength of stainless steel where it is needed most. The grip has interchangeable backstraps, and the gun’s controls are ambidextrous.

Grand Power Q100

Grand Power uses a 4.3″ barrel in the Q100 pistol. Overall this gun has an 8″ length. It is 5.3″ tall. Unloaded, it weighs 26.1 ounces.

Like other Grand Power handguns, the Q100 is manufactured in Slovakia and imported into the US by Eagle Imports. Eagle Imports also handles the importation and distribution of other brands like Bersa.

Eagle Imports announced the suggested retail price is $574. This includes a lifetime service contract on the gun.

    Wow, that doesn’t look at all like an M&P. Nope, not at all.

    • john huscio

      It actually doesnt…..unless your blind.

    • Jimmy Chimichanga

      It looks like every other Grandpower, without a hammer.

      If anything I would say the Ruger American borrowed some of the Grandpower design cues.

      Also, last time I checked M&Ps didn’t have rotating barrel lugs.

      Grant Bates just posted a review on the YouTubes, would be interested to see the Q100 vs Beretta APX vs CZ p10 vs FN 509

    Roxor with a threaded barrel plz. Think about it, fixed barrel, put anything on and probably no reliability problems.

    • Anonymoose

      It’s not fixed- it rotates. It will probably mess up with a suppressor.

      • Tony

        Correct, regardless of what thread you put on it, the suppressor either backs itself off, or tightens to the point of breaking the threads with a rotating barrel.

        • Giolli Joker

          Beside the fact that the Roxor is straight blowback, Beretta made a PX4 SD as suppressor host, I think it worked just fine.
          I don’t know where your hypothesis comes from.

      • Edeco

        Au contraire Mewse, the Roxor is a tactical/practical size 380. The website says fixed barrel. That alone might be a translation error but I doubt the 380 has enough thrust to run a locking breach with that much barrel and slide.

        • Anonymoose

          Oh, it’s a straight blowback. That means it’s going to be louder than you want with a suppressor.

  • john huscio

    I’ve been mildly interested in the grand powers for a while…..especially this one…..im assuming standard 17 round mags for this one?

    I think I’m gonna wait for the P11 sized Q to be imported.

    • gunsandrockets

      I have to admit the K100 is really interesting.

      • norm

        i HAVE THE k100-xTRIM GREAT PISTOLS.

  • Edeco

    Awesome, yes! So far Eagle refuse to import them. Which I think is silly, I mean, they’re a me-too in the already-stuffed duty-gun niche when they could waltz into the growing muzzle-device-host department with something practically off the shelf (I would recommend the sporty, longslide 380, might as well, get more space from the Bersa etc.)

  • noob

    DAO striker fired? like a HK VP70? That is interesting. I’d like to see the geometry of the trigger mechanism, to see what they did to try to get an acceptable trigger feel. Let’s hope it’s not a long creepy 10lbs trigger or something unusable.

  • KWB75

    That gun is a whole lot of ugly! Like roach killing ugly! With so many really good striker fired 9mm’s out there why buy this Slovenian abortion?

    • Oggy

      Slovakia not Slovenia, you are probably thinking of RexOne gun. A local gun magazine (in Serbia) tested this pistol and have reported on a K100 model that has fired over 100000 rounds without changing any parts. That article got out years ago. This goes hand in hand with their lifetime service contract.

  • mongo

    I have a Grand Power and it is a fine pistol. It fires and handles great but OH BOY, putting it back together is murder! Just letting you guys know!
