KEL TEC PMR 30

Postby WTR » Fri Sep 08, 2017 10:16 pm

My friend bought an interesting pistol for home defense. The KEL TEC PMR 30 is full sized, is light as a feather and holds 30 rounds of .22 Mag. The pistol is accurate and has very little recoil.

Fun Guns in Whacko has one and it is under $400 to boot. Cheapest I seen for one in a while. I would like to have one to play with but can't justify me getting one.

Palmetto State had them on sale for $359.00 (or so) over Labor Day. Waiting on mine to ship. Seems like it should be a "fun" gun. Already picked up a couple of extra mags, need some ammo next, I don't have anything else in .22 Mag.

NOW they do. But for the longest time, PMR-30s were really hard to find.....which is a common complaint levied against Keltec. I took me forever to find a Sub-2000 that takes Glock mags. When they first came out with the RFB, they were unobtainium for a long time. That's still somewhat the case with their RDB.

Just fired mine for the first time yesterday. It's a little flame thrower but it shoots well and actually has a good trigger. Overall I am pleased with it. Academy has had 22mag in stock the last three times I've been there.

That model had an issue at one time with the feed ramp being malformed. One gun exploded. That's why I got a .22 Mag revolver instead.

I have shot two of these pistols. The first one I got worked very well and had nearly flawless reliability. My Dad has that one and I got another used one I found. It kept having failure to feed. I took a gamble and bought the replacement barrel with flash suppressor. Since using the new barrel, the gun has been perfectly reliable.

Beyond that, it is a fun pistol to shoot and 22 mag ammo is easy to find these days. You can buy it in bulk for as low as $11 a box online.
