The Grand Power P11 isn’t your run-of-the-mill, polymer-frame pistol. What it offers is a versatile system in a relatively lightweight package. Designed to accept double-stack magazines holding 12 round of 9 mm Luger, the polymer frame P11 pistol provides three distinct modes of operation. Given the placement of the gun’s bilateral safety levers—up renders the gun safe, middle position allows for the traditional double-action/single-action (DA/SA) mode and the bottom-most position decocked allows for double-action-only fire—users can select, quickly and simply, the firearm’s function to meet user-specific needs.
American Rifleman’s Dope Bag found the P11 to be a “highly accurate, useful and interesting handgun that could easily serve as a combination home-protection and concealed-carry pistol.” Included is a 3.3” stainless steel barrel designed for recoil operation by way of a rotating barrel that cams against a hardened steel pin mounted within the steel chassis of the polymer frame.
The P11 is a full-featured pistol with enhanced ergonomic features, which include textured grip panels, cocking serrations both fore and aft on the gun’s steel slide and a high-grip radius molded below the gun’s beavertail rear and rear of the trigger guard. These enhancements enable shooters to engage with the firearm with a lower bore axis in relation to the shooting grip. Putting accurate fire downrange is aided by a set of three-dot adjustable sights. Grand Power includes a section of Picatinny rail for accessories.
