Any of you folks have the Kel-tec PMR 30? You have any issues with it? Thank you.

I've had one for a while. It has approximately 250 rounds thru it. No issues whatsoever. Fun to shoot. The muzzle flash is pretty impressive.

No issues, shoot it surprisingly well as does the family. About 6 months ago did the MCARBO work on trigger, added (and polished) stainless feedramp, mag release, heavier recoil spring (a bit fiddly) ...

Was good before - really really good now. The sights with fiber optics work pretty good. I and family are fans of this, luckily have a good stock of .22WMR.

I have both a PMR-30 and CMR-30, both are a hoot to shoot!

No issues and its super fun to shoot. It throws out a foot of flame and sounds like a .357 magnum. The magazines are a pain to load though.

Mrs. Flash has one and it's become her favorite pistol. She loves the loud report and the huge muzzle flashes.

As I told her, if 30 rounds to center mass don't stop an assailant, the muzzle flash will set them on fire.

Have one, bought it used, the PMR30 has reports for a lot of FTF however its not the gun, it's how the mag is loaded. Load it wrong and you'll get problems.

First Mag I loaded and shot had issues of FTF. Reloaded that mag, and then took it to the range with zero issues, and I've shot it many times since. Loading the Mag properly is important.

Fun gun 22 WMR 30 rounds, have 3 mags ready, sights are good, trigger is fine out of the box, wish it had a provision for an optic...

For the PMR30, Highly recommend the MCARBO upgrades. The polished stainless feedramp, adjustable trigger, recoil spring, and mag release update. Stronger recoil spring helps with consistent feeding (and optic addition) as does the feedramp and the release helps raise the magazine just a bit which also helps with feeding.

Warning - if doing the recoil spring upgrade you need three hands and suggest you get spare keepers as you will launch 1 or 2 - do the work in a box so if comes off stays contained. Basic gunsmith skills, nothing too hard.

I've got a PMR30 magazine loader that was made on a 3D printer and a friend gave it to me.

Works great and no pain on the thumbs.
