    Anyone had any experience with this one? The gun shop owner offered me a NIB one in .40, takes the Glock Mags, for about $330. He said they're very hard to find........How about reliability & quality?

    I have one of those Kel-Tec Sub Rifles on order for a customer and just like the PMR-30 I'm having trouble finding them from any of my distributors.

    I believe the $330.00 price is in line but as far as reliabilty and performance it's too soon to tell. At that price I'd group it together with a Hi Point carbine. These guns are great as they can be shot on many indoor ranges where hi powered long guns aren't allowed. This create a market for this class of firearm in that price range, whereas, the CX 4 Storm is nearly twice as much and most of the AR-LAR pistol caliber rifle are over three times as much.

    I have ten of the PMR-30 on backorder for customers and one of the distributors I deal with tells me there is going to be a long wait as he has 10,000 (ten thousand) backorder s for that pistol.

    As for the quality aspect I did manage to procure one of the pistols for a customer and I'm not sure that I like a firearm that frames comes in two pieces and is sandwiched together and bolted. I'm presently selling these pistols for $329.00 and still not sure what warrants that price tag.

    Going have to wait and see what some of the range reports are on this and other forums. Good luck, Joe

    I have the 9mm version and couldn't be happier.
    There is a new 40 at my LGD for $300 so $330 isn't so bad.
