LOW RECOIL, RAPID FOLLOWUP SHOTS

Recoil buffer and dual captive co-axial recoil springs combined with the crisp, short-reset trigger allow high rate of aimed fire. The barrel is fluted for lightweight and effective heat dissipation.

COMES WITH TWO 30-ROUND MAGAZINES
The Kel-Tec PMR-30 and two Zytel magazines with 60 rounds total of powerful 22WMR (70% more kinetic energy than 22LR) weigh only 25.5 oz, far less than a ruger Mk III (34 oz) or a Browning Buckmark (36 oz) with one 10-round magazine of 22LR each.
I'm so impressed with this gun I made it my standard concealed carry weapon. Not only is the .22 Mag a hot round, having 30 of them more than makes up for whatever additional lead you get in a .38, 9mm or .45 round, particularly when the most rounds you get with those guns is 10. Added plus is the light weight and how effective the green dot laser I added is. I had to buy one for my son to keep him away from mine.
This pistol is great as a primary carry sidearm. It has a great feel and accuracy, with exceptional sighting features. The only negative to this gun is the magazines which holds 30 rounds. At 50% capacity (14-16 rounds) there is no issue. But when loading rounds above the 50% capacity it is far too easy for the rounds to get slightly out-of-alignment in the magazine stacking resulting in jamming in the magazine (not in the breech). Possibly a loading tool would be of help with this finicky cartridge loading nature, I am ordering one to find out.
shipped out the same day I ordered it, was in my my within 3 days. Now if I could find ammo to try it out!
everything was good
It is an amazing weapon. Light easy and accurate...
I recommend this pistol (5 stars) because it is fun to shoot, It is light as a feather, it is reliable to use and there isnt anything like it on the market that compares to it. I had some issues at first but keltec Customer service handled it very well. Overall I enjoy shooting this gun alot; it has an outstanding trigger. The pistol needs the right kind of ammunition to reliably work the action - as mentioned in the Owner's Manual. If you try to shoot under 40gr projectile the action does not cycle as designed. I tried a Winchester 30gr polymer tipped varmint round (2250fps with 20 inch barrel!)and the FTF and FTE issues wouldn't stop. I went back to CCI 40gr JHP and the gun has no FTF, FTE problems since. I also use Hornady 45 gr critical defense with no problems.
I had an issue with the magazines that came with the gun. No matter how I loaded mags I was only able to get 27 rounds and 25 rounds in the two stock mags. If I would have forced them in I would risk denting the side of the cartridge cases. I sent them back to Keltec and they were replaced with two redesigned magazines that hold 30 rounds each. I bought a 3rd magazine that works great and I can carry 91 rounds easily in this setup.
I have a Gen 2 PMR30 which has a redesigned barrel. The Gen 1 barrel is fluted and the Gen 2 barrel is not fluted. I have had no problems with this gun since the mags were replaced and I stuck to the >40gr ammunition.
Good job, all around, to Keltec!
This gun is so cool. The PMR hold 30 rounds on 22 magnum. It is zippy. not much recoil. I like it for hiking. It isn't too heavy. Supper accurate, especially in my hands lol.
Just bought a Kel Tec PMR and all i can say is that it blew me away. This gun is AWESOME!!! It's light as a feather and blasts out 30 rounds. Recently bought a PPQ and a HK VP9 and this KT is my favorite gun. If you can find BUY IT NOW. You will never be sorry.
I recently purchased this pistol from Gunprime and am very pleased with the ease of my purchase Gunprime gets 5 stars and this PMR30 gets 5 stars this pistol is awsome fired. 90 rounds right out of the box no failures it is a very nice high quality pistol very pleased highly recommend!
