Keltec PF9

I had been looking for a PF9 for a while and finally got one. Great little gun, nice and light. After taking out to the range I did notice a couple of things.

1. It pinched my trigger finger and the trigger war pretty far forward.
2. The back part of the grip "beaver tail" had sharp edges and hurt my hand after 30 or so rounds.

So being the tinkerer that I am I decided to try a few things. First I made a kydex holster for it. I had cross breed supertuck from that I wasn't using so I took the belt clip off of it. That along with some kydex and leather I had turned into this.





I then decided to add an mod to move the trigger back a bit, remove pretravel. While I was at it I rounded off the sharp edges on the trigger.





Before pretravel removal.


After


I then rounded off the edges in the back of the grip.

Wrinkles,

Good work. I like your holster.

I have one of these in a drawer I took in a trade. Someday I intend to get around to shooting it. I bought a 'Sticky' IWB holster and am waiting on a bikini belt slide from Black Hills Leather.

I appreciate the post and look forward to any comments you have on reliability and accuracy.

This pc needs someone to offer lead stock panels. It is too light for a 9mm to allow proper hit repeat speed. A 12 oz 380 is pretty hard to control, actually, and the 9mm has another 50% of recoil momentum. I like the Keltec, but I wish it was 5 ozs heavier. Many, many of us carried the steel framed Mustang Colt 380, at 18 ozs, in a pants pocket holster, with no problem. So a lighter gun is not needed at all.

Again, the dumbest thing I've heard. What gibberish.

Hey Sarge, some people just need something heavier to shoot... I've had the P-11 for close to 15 years as a carry gun, and I only get mo' better shooting it with mo' practice.
That's a 14 oz. gun that holds 10+1. I'd get a PF-9 'cause it's smaller and lighter, but darn it, I want more rounds in the magazine cuz it's only a 9mm. If I'm not so concerned about weight (or size), then I carry a lightweight Officer's Model .45acp and a couple of extra mags. Once upon a time I carried a .380 PPK/S and thought that was a real handful to shoot! It just all depends.....

P.S. : I liked what I saw on WRINKLE's photos of the PF-9 and the holster. Inspirational!

How'd ja do it?

Wrinkles,
I have shot the PF9 before and I know how painful the trigger is. What did you use to heat the trigger with?

I bought one on Saturday and shot 50 rds through it. I love this gun and its pretty dang accurate at 15 yds. This little pistol has a kick to it but I just grip down tight just like I do when im shooting my 1911 and I shot it just fine. The trigger pull is long but for target practice I pull it about half way back, set my sight and fire baby! Its spot on! The long trigger pull makes me confident it wont go off in my pocket and with no safety thats what this gun is designed to do.

Welcome to the forum, KCAutoBob. You replied to a 6 month old thread, which is a VERY COMMON newbie occurrence. In this instance, regretfully Sarge 405 no longer participates on this forum. Your reply appears to have pumped some life into this stale thread, so it's all good. I just wanted to point this out to you, as I did it several times as a newbie before I figured it out. Once again---welcome....

Sorry I've been away for some time. I used a lighter and a pair of leather gloves.
