I want one, /k/. I want one so bad. The MSRP is $415, but good luck finding one for that price due to asshole scalpers. As if it's not already hard enough being a poorfag.

.22 Magnum is a fun round.
And having 30 of them in a flush magazine in a lightweight pistol is interesting.

.22LR would be a LOT cheaper though, and it wouldn't make the gun so huge in the hand.

But the diminutive .22 LR would work against the PMR-30's design as a carry self defense pistol with a tremendous ammo capacity in a "poor man's 5.7x28".
If it was in .22 LR, it would be considered a plinker or target pistol.

I thought it was pretty much considered a plinker.

They're unreliable even when they're "reliable". I've yet to meet anyone that has one that cycles 100% every time. Some people love it for what it is, others don't. I know a couple guys that carry them on their trap lines.

There are a ton (new)on gunbroker for around that price shipped on cursory glance. Just find a place that'll do an FFL transfer and you'll be golden. It's pretty easy. Most places charge $15-50. I charge $25 where I work.

The .22 Magnum is a good varminting round and our nation's morgues has proved it's a killer. I like how many .22 LR single-action revolvers can swap out their cylinders for .22 Magnum cylinders, transforming a target/plinker to a rat-blaster. My Ruger New Model Single-Six is a good example of this. Terrible capacity (6 compared to 30), slow to reload, but accurate, reliable and will shoot all brands if you can stick 'em in the cylinder.

Now I have heard over the years that the Kel-Tek PMR-30 has feeding problems (perhaps this is mainly from not working well with certain ammo brands or loads) to reports of the cast metal breach blowing apart and disassembly pins breaking. If these are actually recurring problems, then that is a deal-breaker for me. Anyone have practical experience with it?

Neat plinker because fuck reloading. I don't know that I'd trust a 22 Mag with my life when there are more reliable, more powerful, more easily concealable alternatives easily available from other reputable manufacturers.

Apparently, this was fixed. I've read that the original PMR30 had a bunch or problems, it either F2F, F2E or some other problem. But, Kel-Tec heard the complaints and fixed it in later builds of the PMR30.
Now, my problem is that I have no idea how to tell the difference between the old PMR30 and a new one.
