Default Problems with Kel-Tec PF-9

My pf-9 is my BUG and have only had it 8 months and rarely shoot it. less than 100 rds thru it. I was at the range a few weeks ago and I always inspect all my guns before shooting. Broke it down and everything looked great. When It got to the cleaning end of it I noticed that on the front right side rail that there was a ruff edge. Took it to my armorer cause I could not figure it out. He thinks that while the bullet is exiting thru the barrel then recoiling the barrel hood is sliding just a tad 2 the right and hitting it. You can feel the edge on the hood there is slight roughness and the rail is gouged. This is why I always inspect b4 and after. It was not there b4 shooting it that day and saw it while cleaning. Keltec is Gonna take a look at it and let me know whats up. I think that when the polymer frame was molded the dimensions where slightly off. It shot fine no jams/FTF/Feed. I hope they will just send me a new one but we will see. Will let everyone know how it turns out...... G19

They are great to deal with,sometimes just a call away. Would still like to get my hands on the 22 mag pistol they have on back order.

I have had great CS with them, the one thing I do not like about the company is there advertising campain. I have been trying to get a SUB-2000 that accepts my G19 mags for over 2 yrs and they are not producing them, yet in every catalog I receive they are advertising it. They retail for $299 But on GUNBROKER.com they are biddding up to $600 for them...WTF

I have had my PF9 for several months and thus far, no problems at all. Not one FTE or FTF. For the money, it is a bargain 9mm and very concealable.

I know they're customer service is awesome for sure, I know they'll fix you up. They've sent me springs and small stuff for free before since I was doing my own regular maintenance. On the sub2k you want, I feel your pain. I too want one, unfortunately like most others in their line up that are popular, they're very hard to catch and sell out quick

Got my Keltec PF-9 back today. They replaced the slide and polished the feed ramp. They threw in a +1 mag extension for a total of 9 rds single stack. Im not sure about the rails because it was not touched (still rough) by finger feeling it.....Concealed 27
