Mechanics: The action functions correctly. This pistol has a fixed internal box magazine. Grendel describes it as “a high capacity magazine integrated in the grip”, it holds 10 rounds. It is loaded from the top, through the ejection port; either single rounds by hand or by using standard 10 round M – 16 stripper clips. We have not fired this pistol.

Our Assessment: This Grendel P – 10 has been designed to use a double action trigger similar to a revolver. Like a revolver it has no external safety and “also like a revolver, the P – 10 uses no loose magazines, but has a high capacity magazine integrated in the grip.” From the owner’s manual “It is light weight and smaller than a .38 special Chiefs Special snub nose revolver while having twice the capacity”. If you have a CCW this may be the daily carry gun you have been looking for.
