Our Assessment: This Grendel P–12 has been designed to use a double action only trigger similar to that of a revolver. It has no external safety and uses a detachable magazine. As Grendel has said "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.
CA Legal or CA Private Party Transferable: This handgun cannot be transferred as a dealer sale in California and the magazines are not available to California residents. This handgun can be sold as a Private Party Transfer (PPT) at our Simi Valley shop. This does not apply to out of state buyers, except that the magazines will not be provided to residents of states with magazine capacity regulations.
