Kel-Tec PMR-30


The PMR-30 is a light weight, full size pistol chambered for the flat-shooting .22Magnum cartridge (.22WMR). The PMR-30 operates on a unique hybrid blowback/locked-breech system. This operation system allows for the use of a wide variety of ammunition as it seamlessly adjusts between locked breach and blowback operation, depending on the pressure of the cartridge. It uses a double stack magazine of a new design that holds 30 rounds and fits completely in the grip of the pistol. The trigger is a crisp single action with an over-travel stop. The manual safety is a thumb activated ambidextrous safety lever (up for SAFE, down for FIRE). The slide locks back after the last shot and a manual slide lock lever is also provided. The light, crisp trigger pull and fiber optic sights make the PMR-30 ideal for target shooting and hunting small game.

Kel Tec’s PMR-30 is reported as a hard gun to find. I can understand why, they are really fun to shoot and don’t last long on any LGS shelf. With 30rd mags of 22 WMR it’s like you never run out of ammo. It is light weight, accurate and reliable after a short break in period. It would make an excellent pack gun or just a fun range gun. With a micro red dot optic you can reach out there with this little 22 magnum pistol. Kel Tec is working on putting out the carbine brother to the PMR call the RMR-30. Both have the same interchangeable magazines. Expected release 1st qtr 2013.
