Grendel P-10 / P-12
The Grendel P-10 and the P-12 are subcompact pistols designed by George Kelgren, the Swedish Arms designer and owner of Kel-Tec. The P-10 and P-12 were his first ventures into the subcompact pistol market, with mixed results. The P-10 and P-12 are nearly identical in outward appearance. The P-10 loads ten rounds into a non-detachable internal box magazine via stripper clips. The P-12 is the same design, however, it has an eleven round detachable magazine. Though many internet sites call the pistols the P10 & P12, the literature from the manufacturer themselves call the pistols P-10 and P-12. The P-12 was built from 1991 to 1995. One of the complaints of the P-10 was its tendency to eject several unexpended cartridges out of the top of the internal box magazine when the first shot was fired, thus dumping out unused rounds onto the ground.
