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.

Slide and barrel are 4140 steel, frame is 7075 aluminum. Grip, slide cover, trigger, mag
release, and safety levers are glass reinforced Nylon (Zytel), much like other Kel-Tec
Pistols. Magazine is Also Zytel and holds 30 rounds, with round count ports.
Other features include: dual opposing extractors for reliability, heel magazine release to
aid in magazine retention, dovetailed aluminum front sight, Picatinny accessory rail
under the barrel, Urethane recoil buffer, captive coaxial recoil springs. The barrel is
fluted for light weight and effective heat dissipation. PMR30 disassembles for cleaning
by removal of a single pin.

Half again as many rounds as the FN 5-7, More common ammo, and $500 less than the FN.  
A little payback for Ruger cloning the P3AT ?

I'd be more interested in a 10 round magazine for my P3AT.

It looks better than the Grendel P30 which was also a 30 shot .22 WMR.

Can't wait for the FN 5.7 and Kel-Tec .22Mag comparison threads to start...

Maybe we'll finally see a .22 Magnum Defensive pistol load designed to get maximum performance from a short barrel.  I've wanted one for my NAA Black Widow for years.  Every year at SHOT I explain the niche to ammo company executives while they smile and nod and tell me not to hold my breath.

Considering that Kel-Tec used to be Grendel....I'm kinda jazzed that this is coming out. I'll add it to my WANT list....  8)
Why, yes....I'm the right-wing extremist Obama warned you about... ;D

I just wish Texas was as free and independent as everyone thinks it is...   :'(
