About the Gun

The Kel-Tec PMR-30 handgun operates via a unique hybrid blowback/locked-breech system compatible with a variety of rimfire ammunition. The system adjusts between blowback and locked-breech based on the pressure produced by a given cartridge. Fitting flush with the pistol's polymer grip, the double-stack magazine holds 30 rounds. Fiber-optic front and rear sights are standard.

About the Cartridge

This cartridge pushes the limits of pressure possible with a rimfire case. Also referred to as the .22 WMR, the .22 Magnum was initially offered with 40 grain FMJ and JHP bullets at an advertised muzzle velocity of 2000 fps from a rifle barrel and 1550 fps from a pistol barrel. Due to the high supersonic velocity, .22 WMR cartridges are loaded with jacketed bullets. The various 30-40 grain JHP bullets are best for varmint hunting, but are overly destructive on small game.

500 rounds thru it flawlessly. Accurate right out of the box. The muzzle fireball it a major plus and the recoil free action is AMAZING!

Great shooter! Very accurate. Likes FMJ best for me, at least in a full magazine.

An awesome pistol, got it last week and have put a couple hundred rounds through it flawlessly. Love this pistol, with the 30 round mags it’s like a pocket AR.
