Kel-Tec Does NOT Reccomend Suppressor on PMR-30!!!

So Kel-Tec finally offers an OEM threaded barrel for the PMR-30 but they don't recommend that you use a suppressor!

Threaded barrel and flash reducer for the PMR-30.

USE OF A SUPPRESSOR WITH THE PMR-30 PISTOL IS NOT RECOMMENDED.
Due to the unique locking action of the PMR-30 pistol and the lightweight slide and barrel, the use of a suppressor is not recommended as it will cause an increase in gas volume and pressure and the slide will likely unlock early. This will cause an increase in gases and residue that is ejected back towards the shooters face and could also cause a case rupture to occur. Any damage or injuries caused by the use of a suppressor or other heavy weight muzzle device attached to the PMR-30 pistol will not be covered by any Warranty.
I know I should ask this on KTOG but I wanted to get your feedback as well. I still plan on getting the barrel anyway whether I use my suppressor or not.

My question is, is this a legitimate safety concern?

Any input on this is greatly appreciated, thanks :-)

I bought it last year on GB for $460 because I knew it wouldn't be long before the price skyrocketed. That's also why I got the Colt LE6920 and the Mini Draco.

I was REALLY hoping that I could use my new Gemtech Alpine on the PMR-30, but I guess that dream is out the window if it causes issues that could be dangerous
