In honor of the company's 30th anniversary, Kel-Tec released its first-ever striker-fired handgun, and it's being marketed as the lightest, thinnest handgun of its type on the market.

“KelTec invented subcompact, polymer handguns,” Director of Sales and Marketing Derek Kellgren said. “So we wanted our first 9 mm striker-fired pistol to be worthy of the company George Kellgren founded 31 years ago.”

The new Kel-Tec P15, as its name suggests, carries a magazine capacity of 15 rounds in 9 mm, despite its ultra-thin dimensions. This is accomplished through an innovative, patent-pending, extended magazine design. The new guns are also equipped with fiber-optic front sights, an adjustable rear sight and "gator" grip texturing for a solid hold. Additionally, each gun is equipped with a reversible push-button magazine release. At the rear of the grip frame, there's also a grip safety. The gun features a single-slot Picatinny accessory rail on the front of the frame, as well as serrations on the front and rear of the slide.

Unloaded, the Kel-Tec P15 weighs in at 14 ozs. The gun measures 6.6" long, 5" high and 0.875" wide. Barrel length measures 4". The suggested retail price on the P15 is $425, and guns are slated to be available in Q2 of 2022. For more information on the new Kel-Tec P15, visit
