It figures the small caliber ones have yet to be approved :D  Would love to have a .22 LR conversion kit to keep the Kadet company.

Sorry, but there won't be a conversion kit. All the Grand Power guns in calibers below 9x19 in pressure use a fixed barrel that's dovetailed and pinned to the steel frame insert. The K22's come as stand alone guns.

This is a question that, as a CZ owner, I'd like to know--

Does Grand Power make a pistol that can take 9mm+P or NATO-spec 9mm ammo as of yet? This is a deal-maker/breaker for me, since my primary defense ammo is 9mm+P.

Go back to the very first post in this thread. This is the type of ammo used in the testing video:

Reliability test. 1250 rounds in 15 minutes. Zero failures. Ammo used was British Military 9mm L7A1 Hirtenberger 50,000 Psi +P+

The GP K100 can handle 9mm NATO and 9mm +P ammo.

I believe STI added an advisory to their website to avoid +P ammo after they ended their relationship with Grand Power.

Regardless, your Grand Power pistol should run any quality factory ammo without fear. Consider this a personal challenge. Go ahead and try to kill one. Get back to us with the results.  I think you will be pleased.

Yeah, that was what got my attention. The Grand Power website also warned against firing rounds through the gun that wasn't factory ammo-- although they didn't say anything about higher-pressure "factory" ammo, or +P ammo in general. So, yeah, that's why I was wondering.

I bought my CZ-75 SP01 because it could take almost anything you fed through it-- target ammo, defense loads, high-pressure handloads, etc. It's reliable and ridiculously-accurate without being a "range queen." I am considering the GP K-100 as a lighter-weight carry piece, along with a P-07.

July 16, 2013 -- "8 new models have just been approved by BATF, so soon will be available on US market."


I hope they bring more magazines to the US market, too.  I'm looking at a full size k100 for my next purchase...
