    I love GunBroker!!!

    I already have four mags for this gun because I knew that I would own one someday. I am ordering four more mags tomorrow! Anyone own one of these? Can you comment on it's quality and reliability?

    Thanks!

    Pics when it arrives.:banana:

    I'd like to see whatever penetration tests you can manage, whether it's freezer bags full of water, or wet newspaper, or geletin, or drywall, or critters.

    Also, how's the blast & flash?

    And is the grip unsuitable for tiny female hands?

    Ultralight & ultra-high capacity, interesting concept.:cool:

    I want one. Updates please. I remember the AMT automag .22's JUNK. I now own a Mountain Eagle .22 lr and love it. 20 round mags and functions flawlessly. Would like to upgrade to .22 mag and 30 rounds. I can pack the Mountain Eagle all day in a shoulder holster on the snowmachine with no discomfort and all that ammo capability.

    Tests are NOT possible I'm afraid.

    Living in South FL has it's drawbacks....despite our AWESOME gun laws! Nowhere to shoot bags, newspaper or gelatin. Too many people around!

    YES! It's THAT bad!!!!

    If it's anything like its predecessor, the Grendel P-30, you'll love it. 30 rounds of .22 WMR is fun!:wavey:

    Did Kel-Tec fixed the keyholing issues with this gun?

    PMR-30 production was suspended for a while, due to the rate of twist in the barrel which did not stabilize the bullet in flight.

    I had one of those a year or so back.

    Mine would only run with CCI Maxi-Mags, but it did run fine with them.

    Accuracy was pretty good as well, but too much flash and blast to really enjoy shooting it.

    After the novelty wore off I sold it for more than I paid.

    Do want.

    (Although if I buy one of these I will have to convert my 77/22 over to .22 WMR...sigh)

    That's good to know. I will start looking for a post-recall PMR-30.

    Congrats on your new purchase.:wavey:

    For $306. What are they going for now? I've seen them for $600 at shows and that isn't a typo.
