Intratec was a firearm company based in Miami, Florida. The company's most famous product was the TEC-9.


Intratec began as Interdynamic USA, an offshoot of Swedish firearms manufacturer Interdynamic AB. Due to the lack of firearm market in Sweden, Interdynamic AB set up a subsidiary in the United States to sell the KG-9. Called Interdynamic USA, this company eventually became Intratec when George Kelgren left the company and Carlos Garcia renamed it Intratec, and continued to sell variants of KG-99 which was renamed to Tec-9. It went out of business in 2001.


CAT series

Designed by famed Israeli gun designer Nehemiah Sirkis, the CAT-9, CAT-380, CAT-40, and CAT-45 pistols are polymer-framed semi-automatic handguns chambered in 9mm Parabellum, .380 Auto, .40 S&W, and .45 ACP, respectively.

Protec series

The Protec-22 and Protec-25 are small semi-automatic handguns chambered in .22 Long Rifle and .25 ACP, respectively. The Protec-25 is a CZ 45 clone.


The TEC-9 is the third version of this gun made and marketed by one of the original principle partners that produced this style of 9mm pistol first as the open bolt semi automatic KG-9 and then as the closed bolt semi automatic KG-99. The TEC-9 name was applied when the Kelgren and Garcia partnership ended and Carlos Garcia went solo as Intratec of Miami, FL.


The TEC-22 is a handgun chambered in .22 Long Rifle.


The TEC-38 is a polymer-framed two-shot derringer chambered in .38 Special.
