Flying off the shelves.
Key point: This gun breaks from the mold and is doing well for it.
One of the hottest new handguns on the market, the Kel-Tec CP33 pistol has been designed as an easy-to-shoot pistol for beginner and experienced shooters alike. But does it really live up to the hype?
Kel-Tec has already manufactured unique firearms such as the Sub-2000 carbine or the KSG-55, but the CP33 pistol is something else completely.
The pistol comes equipped with a standard 33 round magazine, so your time between reloads just got a lot longer in contrast to most other kinds of pistols (and even longer if you opt for the 50 round magazine add on). The sleek design of this 10.5 inch pistol and lightweight trigger pull, which advertises at four pounds, makes this a great handgun for novice shooters.
The Kel-Tec CP33 made its debut in 2019 years after the widely popular PMR30 came on scene, and these pistols share a lot of similarities on the design giving the CP33 a familiar feel.
Kel-Tec took it up a notch with a substantial reduction in noise and at retail price of $475, they definitely delivered on what PMR30 fans had been asking for. If you want to check out this handgun in action you can see its pre-production trial run here.
The quad-stack magazine is revolutionary in its own right. With four rows of .22 LR ammunition, just watching this handgun in action alone is a thing of beauty.
It is completely transparent and each load is guided by a recoil-spring rod, which moves the stacks of ammunition into a single stream at the top. The relatively light tension on this magazine makes it easy to reload while also ensuring no deformities on the cases as they sit in their off-centered pattern.
The CP33 comes standard with a nine inch sight radius and an adjustable fiber optic sight. The rear includes two red inserts and a green front plate, but with a Picatinny-style top rail this pistol is optimized for any of your favorite add-ons. In addition, the extended threaded barrel makes the customization possibilities limitless and a strong contender for a competition pistol.
The aesthetics of this handgun don’t stop at the impressive magazine. The upper assembly extends 2.5 inches past the rear grip.
