2. Dynamics

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. 

3. Firepower

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. 

4. Magazine

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

 5. Ergonomics

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. 

6. Sights

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

7. Recoil

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. 

8. Price

    This is the worst review I have ever read. Nothing touted as a benefit is even remotely close to being a positive feature. “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.” Ha. Not even a Desert Eagle weighs this much. This review reads like the spam emails I get from Indians offering to help optimize the search result ranking of my non-existent website.

    Too much MONEY for TOO much gun.

  3. Eddie Bryson says:

    Pretty awesome I like that it’s high capacity rounds I’m interested in getting one for myself.

    Terrible review! Only short bullet points listed that appear to be copied from other reviews on other sites. Not a single picture of the actual weapon posted here, except for the YouTube video. Whatever happened to thorough research and straightforward, honest opinions from those who actually test weapons? This review is just like so many other things in our society today. It is extremely watered down. Pathetic!
