Default KelTec PMR-30

This months Rifleman has an ad for the KelTec PMR-30. Holds 30 rounds of .22 Mag. It looks interesting. What is the Forum's opinion of KelTec in general and the PMR-30?

Thanks

I saw the same ad and hope someone will have some first hand information on this one. 22 mag is one of my favorite calibers. I have a Keltec pf-9. I'm not impressed with the fit and finish on it. It is also a beast to shoot after a while at the range. Makes a good ccw, small and light. I chose not to buy the little Keltec .380, got the LCP instead and am happy with it.

I love the Kel-Tec family of CCW guns, the P-11 PF-9 and the P3AT/P32 are the least expensive gun on the market today that I will entrust my life to. I have however developed a "wait & see" attitude with new guns coming onto the market, doesn't seem like any manufacturer is faultless when it comes to re-calling guns that haven't yet been fully tested...
On the other hand, the only 22 Mag auto guns I am aware of still in production are: Excell Industries (I hear it's a POS) High Standard
who has revived the AMT 22 mag ( hear around $650) & the Kel-Tec PMR-30

I had my dealer order one for me a few month's ago.He received 2 of them a couple weeks ago,so I went to get one.Upon my visual inspection,I noticed that at the muzzle end of the slide there was a gap of 1/16-1/8" between the slide and the frame.
It didn't look right to me,but when you pulled the slide to the rear,the gap would disappear.I don't know if they are supposed to look/be this way,but I didn't buy the PMR-30.I never noticed the gap between the slide and frame in any photo's or video's that I have seen,but you could clearly see through the gap on both of these pistols.

He sold both pistols in a couple days,and I'm waiting to see if the new owners have any problems with them.

You can see a small gap between the slide/frame on many guns, that wouldn't keep me from trying one. I am sure whatever your dealer wanted, the price will come down as more get manufactured

Seemed like a lot of muzzle jump for a Semi auto 22 mag, might be the shooter or the light weight of the pistol. Still that is a lot of rounds in one mag so that is a pluss for target shooting. I have an AMT AutoMag long slide that I enjoy shooting good to see some manufacturer bringing back this pistol. I have to wonder why the bottom mag release, I don't like it on the AMT see it as a draw back on this pistol, then again with the mag capacity might not be an issue.

there were some issues with early automags some got out with the same grade of stainless for both slide and frame and had binding issues. amt never really recovered from that. its good to here the design is coming back.

bottom release isnt too bad especially on a range gun. my first ccw gun was an old sig 220 from west germany with the heel clip release. still got some of those mags that find their way into my newhampshire made sig mags. it just took some getting used to but it wasnt bad and i never had problems ccw-wise with inadvertant mag drops.

My wife looked at the ad in Rifleman and said "Wow that looks like fun" so I'm seriously looking at this puppy.

In the pawn shop video I thought I spotted the slide locked back with a round still showing more than once. This was glossed over with the statement "That this is common with new guns" I'd be curious to know exactly what type of malfunction and how often.

I'd also like to know the average selling price of these guys.

If I do buy one I'll report back.
