Kel-Tec CP33



Log in to see fewer ads
Ran across one locally for a fair price out the door. Dealer even gave me 3-100rnd boxes of CCI Standard Vel. Got to load one mag and do a rough sight in. 33 rounds takes a while to load. Easy enough though. Screwed my suppressor on and fired away. Fun fun fun. Needs a grip wrap and a red dot.

Yup, these are a lot of fun though loading the magazine is a bit of a hassle as one must be diligent to insure the rim is in front of the last loaded cartridge. But this is one pistol you can load on Sunday and shoot all week. Two magazines is more than one box of ammo.

The trigger is really nice for the price point. Extra magazines are a bit pricey at $50 each. I still need to add a few magazines just in case something happens to Kel-Tec.

The tailhook is a neat concept and they look cool but the PITA magazines are probably going to prompt me to sell or trade mine.

That mag loader is the best thing since sliced bread.

First range trip with my CP33 was a mixed bag, but after a little cleaning and polishing it has been very reliable even with ammo that won’t cycle in many of my semi autos. The trigger is very nice and the gun is much more accurate than I thought it would be.

All the KelTec's need a fluff N Buff to make sure they run well. Polish the feed ramp, smooth up the interior, operate the action 25 or so times, and run 50-100 rounds through it before judging....

My sample of one just needed cleaning and lubrication. I also let the first-time loaded magazines set overnight before shooting. So far, no failures of any sort.

Mine runs fine as long as the magazines are loaded right.

I ordered a Talon grip wrap in rubber last night. Seems better than the rest as it covers entire grip side, not just lower 2/3

Love the grip wrap. Feels sooo much better now. Easier to shoot when you've got a good purchase.

I saw one at a fun store yesterday. I didn't like the feel of the gun and I hated that the gun had a base of the grip magazine release and the magazine would not drop free. It does have a nice long sight radius. I am sorry but I could not like the gun. Maybe if I shot one my opinion would change, but it just isn't a gun for me. I am glad that the folks that are buying them are happy with the purchase!

Ordered the FarrowTech tailhook setup. Gave me a 10% Veterans discount even. Now for an appropriate optic.

Granite3, with the brace does the sight height you have (AR height) seem right or would lower work?
