Innovative firearms manufacturer KelTec has just announced their latest release that is both feature rich as well as affordable. The KelTec P17 pistol holds 16+1 rounds of .22LR, weighs less than 14 ounces, features a threaded barrel and has an MSRP of $199. The P17 package also adds a light/laser accessory rail, three magazines and signature KelTec styling. Although it’s not mentioned directly, the barrel threads appear to be partially covered by the slide, requiring the use of a thread adapter or extender similar to a PPK/S if you plan on running a suppressor – which I always recommend.
Additional information from KelTec can be found below.
If you’re in the market for a 17-round, compact .22LR pistol with more bells & whistles than a Christmas Day parade, then the P17 is definitely for you! Oh and with an MSRP of $199, you can’t afford to pass one up!

At less than 14-ounces fully loaded, and barely longer than a dollar bill, the P17 is concealable for pretty much anyone. Just don’t forget it’s there when you need it! The threaded barrel, Picatinny-style accessory rail, ambidextrous safety, ambidextrous magazine release and three (3) 16rd magazines come standard. That’s a ton of value added in such a small package. And did we mention the price?
Don’t let the small size fool you. This little pistol is a tack driver. The excellent trigger, fiber optic front sight and adjustable rear sight help you extend the P17’s range. It’s a handy little .22LR that builds confidence and burns bull’s eyes.
Every tool has a purpose and having the right tool for the job sets you up for success. Its size, weight, and caliber are the perfect combination for training that new shooter in your life. For more experienced shooters looking to hone their skills, the P17 is also a great training tool for when you’re on a budget.
