The KP-9 pistol features a closed bolt blowback design that incorporates an out-of-battery safety mechanism so the gun cannot fire unless the bolt is fully closed.
The KP-9 also features feed ramps that are specially designed to reliably chamber jacketed hollow point bullets.
This semi-auto pistol accepts 30-round and 10-round Kalashnikov USA™ magazines. The steel-lined polymer magazines feature a double-column, double-feed design inspired by the battle-proven magazines used in the PPS-43 submachine gun.
The KP-9’s hinged top cover has an attached Picatinny rail. The muzzle features 1/2 inch x 28 suppressor-ready muzzle threads (and a shoulder) making it compatible with most US muzzle devices and suppressors. It comes from the factory with a flash suppressor installed.
