The little magnum rimfire that could, the .22 WMR, provides for excellent velocity and surprising terminal performance when used with jacketed hunting or defensive bullets. When chambered within a semi-automatic pistol, shooters can have a platform that not only costs far less to feed than its center-fire relatives, but is also a blast to shoot. The Kel-Tec PMR-30 is one such pistol. Made of high-strength polymer, the full-size repeater weighs a scant 13.6 ozs. empty yet sports a 4.3” barrel and boxes 7.9” long and 5.8” tall. The slide is fitted with bright, fiber-optic sights and features a relief cut for optic mounting plates. To find out more about Kel-Tec’s PMR-30, check out our NRA Gun of the Week.
