i have a ruger 22 rifle that has always been reliable.
Shot only feds first time out with the sig. First 50 rounds no problems. By the time i got thru 100 rounds reliability was 50%. Stove pipes and FTF's. Will clean gun and use remingtons next round.

There are two problems with the gun, other than that, the PMR 30 is a pretty nice gun.

First Issue: They rushed to production and there were feeding, extraction and functionality issues on many of the first and second production runs.

Second Issue: The gun was overpriced, and there is a huge backlog of factory repairs. the problem is, many dealers aren't telling customers that the guns they are selling them DO still require factory work to run smoothly.

They don't like ALL ammunition, but once you find a good load, it's an excellent pistol. I have shot 6 different PMR30's and I am without hesitation in saying this information.

Remington is the worse ammo you can use. Fouls really bad. Mosquitos like CCI minimags.

Default Kel-Tec

I intend to buy a Kel-Tec PMR 30. My local FFL dealer advised me to wait until the feeding/functioning problems are fixed, so I'm waiting.

Fortunately, I have always been quality oriented, when I bought firearms. I have never bought on price. Why? when you buy on a cheap price alone, you usually get what you paid for, a cheap, low quality gun.

That is why I have S&W Model 41's (3) S&W model 17's (2) a model 617, A model 34, a model 63 and a model 651. I have never, had to wait, to have a firearms manufacture to apply a band aid to their design, so it will finally work properly.

I also have four High Standard, top of their line, 22 pistols, two of which are High Standard Victors. Another is a High Standard Supermatic Citation.

If you know that particular firearm is so good, why are you even asking a question about it?

Curious people want to know...!

Hmm .. If I had to wait for the manufacture to get a design right before buying one, I think I'd have to pass altogether. Especially when a dealer tells you that... Sorry to be a "hater" but I believe that Kel-Tek is a little too proud of their stuff.

That was resolved around Oct. 2011...they did a recall and put in a new barrel (non-fluted) which resolved the Keyhole issue & other problems.

The MAIN thing a person can do if they are having any issues with a semi-auto rimfire firearm...is NEVER Use Remington Rimfire Ammo...
the consistancy of product just isn't there...there are threads and threads and threads about how crappy the stuff is...
in cases of FTE/stovepiping, 95% of the time its the Ammo...not the gun.
If its the gun, its usually the Extractor...or Ejector...or a Burr in the Chamber or Slide Rails...and in some rare occasions, the bolt itself has a burr...
I have yet to see a semi-auto that didn't need some internal polishing...even my Dan Wesson 10mm benefited from an intense inspection & polishing


There's also a site called Goldenloki, and they have the best Reliability Prep Tweaks I've ever seen in one place,
they apply not only to Keltec's, but every semi-auto firearm from ANY Manufacturer...
all you have to do, is read about 'em, learn how to do 'em, and then Proficiently Do the Work
