A Closer Look at the Internet Breaking Keltec p50
One of the most outstanding features of the Keltec p50 is its QD mounts and Picatinny-style rails that offer plenty of room for accessories to meet your needs for the job at hand.
The 5.7 cartridge on the Keltec p50 comes in several variants, from hunting to sporting to personal tactical defense. This is attested to by protective details around the world that utilize its efficiency and hunters. And sport shooters and hunters who adore the cartridge for its exceptional distance capabilities and accuracy.
It would be remiss not to mention the firepower this pistol packs. The platform of the P50 is based around a 50 round, double-stack magazine that lays horizontally along the top of the grip.
The Keltec p50 takes the fnp 90 mags where it packs up to 50 rounds. It features a trigger that pops the top of the gun so that you can access your mag, load it with ammo and return it before slamming the top shut the receiver.
This will give you a lot of firing time in between making magazine changes.
Note: Being a large format pistol, this new p50 is chambered in 5.7 by 28 cartridge

Additionally, it features an AR-style charging handle, not to mention an Ambi safety on both sides of the pistol. For a pistol, it has a commendable 15-inch length with a 9.6-inch barrel.
What’s more, it has a threaded one-half by 28 muzzle and weighs 5 pounds with an empty mag. This is the same weight range as with most pistols despite its length.
Similarly, the handgun is equipped with non-rotating sling cups at the bottom and back for your QD sling. This way, you’re free to sling it up and push it forward as opposed to using a brace to pull it back in.
Like with most other pistols, it comes with a pair of sights. That is An a2 post at the front of the gun and the rear. Due to its length, you can expect a relatively long sight radius – every handgun owner’s dream.
Trivia: Its 9.6-inch long barrels create apple room for you to add your red dot
The p50 is designed with a dual recoil spring assembly system to add to the already fantastic ballistics and dynamics. The two rods and buffers in the recoil system make for an exceptionally smooth shooting gun.
Note: The eject port of the p50 is at the top of the gun, but the slug shells are ejected at an almost 90-degree angle. This way, they are not in your face when you are shooting the gun.
For a newly launched handgun, the Keltec p50 comes at a fair price of $995 and is already shipping around.
