Fans of 5.7 NATO and futuristic firearm designs have something to rejoice over this week as KelTec has confirmed its new P50 pistol is now shipping.
No longer vaporware, the 50-shot pistol was initially leaked last December. Using horizontally-oriented FN P90 mags secured under a top cover, the 3.2-pound large-format blowback-action pistol runs 15 inches overall with a threaded 9.6-inch barrel.
Other features include a bottom accessory rail, a top Picatinny rail for optics, and a 1/2x28 TPI thread pitch barrel for suppressors and muzzle devices. Meanwhile, the trigger pull is listed as 5 pounds while height is given as 6.7 inches.
To see it in action, check out Ed Friedman from Shooting Illustrated giving a brief range report in the below video.
For a little more relaxed view, Demolition Ranch has also been kicking the tires on two early model P50s in a video posted last week. So at least you know that a breeding pair exists.
The suggested asking price on the KelTec P50 is $995.
