Anyone seen or handled one if these pistols? They look like a CZ clone. Just a few reviews online but all were positive.
Alrighty Paul, I told you I would let you know something as soon as I fired it. Only shot about 30 rounds so this isn't entirely a full report, however, I loved the hell out of it. As I am just getting into firing handguns I wouldn't have personally thought I could even group well. I was wrong. After a little bit of sight adjustment and figuring out exactly where the sight picture needed to be, I was pretty easily able to achieve a silver dollar sized grouping. The only time I have previously fired a handgun was a Sig 229 and that was just getting the feel of a 9mm. There were no feed issues and I felt that (as I am a rather inexperienced shooter) it was rather accurate. Take it as you will coming from someone with little to no handgun experience, but it is -in my opinion- a pretty damn good handgun (especially considering the low price point). Hope that was at least somewhat helpful and if you have any questions that I didn't touch on feel free to ask.
10-4 Chris thanks for the report! I think that made up my mind for me. Were you able to buy extra mags when you purchased the pistol?
Negative, Carolina Gunrunners can't even get them from their supplier, the mags have to be ordered from the manufacturer. Btw if you didn't see it is a 17+1 mag, but only one.
Hopefully I can find mags at the gun show. I am not counting on it, just hopeful...
The magazines are available directly from EAA in Rockledge, FL. It's on their website under part #170818. Unfortunately, they're pretty steep at $36 each and $10 shipping. I bought an extra from them, since I wanted to make sure I had a replacement in case of the magazine ban going through. Note that it won't seat in the gun with the 17th round inserted, even though it appears identical to the original. I have to contact them tomorrow to work it out. We'll see how it goes.
Like the other fellow on here, I had to adjust the sights out of the box. Other than that, I has fired flawlessly. The grip is very comfortable. Does anyone who has one of these also have a Tanfoglio Witness P? I'm curious if the slides are interchangeable. The upper portion of the frames look identical.
Did you get the magazine issue straightened with EAA? I just ordered a K2P from Buds and wanted to purchase a few more 17 round mags but the website only lists the 16 round mags... part #170818.
There's some reviews on Bud's now, and a couple mention a 16 round capacity, even in their stock magazine. One of the guys says it handles all his CZ magazines, so I may have to give that a try at the local shop. CZ magazines are much cheaper.

Ashley, thanks for getting back to me. Wow. Sounds like a hassle. Mine was shipped from Bud's with one 15 round mag. After reading your post I decided to go with a couple CZ Mec-gar 19 round mags. I found em for $32 at Greg Cote, LLC- they usually sell for $40-50. I'll let ya know know how they run when I get out to the range.

Let me first say. I love this pistol. Best bargain I've got in years. No jams on initial tests- put 200 rounds of standard ball thru it. When I get my reloading press set up- I'll test different bullets types.
Definitely buy the Mec-gar magazines. They are cheaper and better made than the OEM Sarsilmaz mags. Make sure they are the CZ 75b SP-01 mags.
If you're looking for a good holster- you can buy Mold Your Own Kydex kits from Old Faithful Holsters. You only have to be a little handy to assemble them and there are step by step tutorial videos you can follow.
I would like to add my 2 cents to this. This is my first post here and this is also my first pistol. I absolutely love it so far. I have not had one FTF or FTE, not one problem out of the gun at all. I have put about 5-600 rounds so far including some TULammo steel cased. My sights were a little off out of the box, I had to go 1 click up and 2 clicks left. I have no gripes about the gun, but finding a decent holster is hard. Once I get my CCW permit I think i will go with the mold your own kydex as stated above. I got mine from a pawn shop that sells a lot of new guns for $379 which I think was a decent price.
I've been looking into these after I saw GSRswapped and some others talking about the EAA pistols. I'm thinking about making one my next purchase.
I too am considering one of these. Went to my LGS today. They had both the K2p and the full size B6P. I went there to buy the bigger B6P, but actually liked the feel of the smaller K2. It also had the better adjustable sights.
I went prepared to see how the magazines would work as I already have a CZ75B SA. Here is what I found in the K6P:
MecGar CZ75 all metal mags: Seem to fit, but would not quite lock in
Witness TZ75 mag: Fit and locked OK. Very small gap at the mag base.
In looking at the mag release slots in the TZ75 mag I see that they are slightly larger, so the additional "play" allowed them to fit. Side by side with the SAR mags, everything else looked the same. Cant comment yet on how they feed however.
Now I have to go back and buy the K2P .....
I was wondering if there is a way to switch out the front sights on the K2p? It looks as if there is a set screw in the sight but I can't really tell if comes out. Anyways I wanted to also say that I am loving the site and I've just been lurking and reading a lot of threads.
