SHOT Show 2019 has come and gone and with it we saw some actual innovation. One of the “talks of Vegas” was the Kel-Tec CP33 pistol. Why? Because it holds 33+1 rounds of .22LR in a quad-stack magazine. Not to mention there is an extension reportedly on its way for 50 rounds.

Kel-Tec CP33 Features

As far as handguns go, we really like this one. The standard CP33 comes with a 33-round, flush-fit magazine. No additions necessary — it’s 33 rounds right out of the box. The 50-round extension is coming some time in 2019, according to various reports.

Kel-Tec designed the CP33 with competition shooting in mind. To go along with the 33+1 capacity, the CP33 has a 19-slot Picatinny rail sitting atop the gun. Need a space for optics? It’s there and then some.

The CP33 comes with fiber optic sights, adjustable for elevation and windage. It’s also suppressor-ready. At 10.6 inches in overall length and 1.5 pounds unloaded, we imagine competition shooters will be quite happy with this new package from Kel-Tec.

If that’s not enough to like, MRSP on the CP33 is $475. So there’s that. For more information, please visit
