There is no gun as elusive, valuable and cool as Kel-Tec’s PMR-30. Why, you ask? Go ahead and find a pistol that accepts a magazine flush with the frame that also capacity of 30 rounds. Its lightweight polymer frame and fiber optic sights made it the apple of every shooter’s eye.
.22 Magnum is one hell of a cartridge. It’s no surprise—take America’s favorite round and inject it with steroids. While at one point these rounds were relatively cheap, the fun you could have with this pistol was unlimited.
In comes Kel-Tec, who have since perfected the art of rifle and pistol-caliber carbine design, and created the RMR-30, based on the popularity and critical reception that the PMR-30 earned.
Although it was announced last year, Kel-Tec is nearly ready to start shipping the new RMR-30 .22 Mag. rifle. This long gun features the same grip and fire controls of the popular PMR-30 pistol. The rifle also uses the same innovative pie-wedge 30-round magazines as the pistol, allowing for both ammunition and magazine compatibility.
And while this rifle doesn’t fold, it’s still everything you need for applications ranging from varmint hunting, self-defense, plinking and just about everything you can do with a .22 mag.
A cousin of the popular Sub-2000 rifles, the RMR-30 rifle features an adjustable stock, Picatinny rails for optics and lasers, and an unloaded weight of just 4 pounds. The 16-inch barrel is threaded to accept muzzle accessories like flash hiders and sound suppressors.
