Kel-Tec CMR-30

posted on January 22, 2015

If you own the popular Kel-Tec PMR-30 pistol, the new CMR-30 will feel familiar, as the Carbine Magnum Rimfire chambered for .22 WMR is essentially the rifle version of the pistol, even accepting the same 30-round magazines. It also features the identical single-action trigger mechanism, bolt stop, ambidextrous safety levers, and mag catch. A threaded 16” barrel accepts a variety muzzle attachments, and a multi-position collapsible stock (made with aluminum stock rods) allows for lengths ranging from 22.7” to 30.6”. Two picatinny-style rails—a long one on top for an optic of your choice, and an under rail—are standard. Lefties will appreciate the ambidextrous operating handles, which are non-reciprocating and latch in the forward position. An integral sling loop is included near the rear of the grip, on both sides. See it on the range in this video, and for more, visit Kel-Tec.
