The much-anticipated big brother to the Kel-Tec PMR-30 (review here) has arrived! If PMR is Pistol Magnum Rimfire, then at least on paper and in the hand, the CMR-30, or Carbine Magnum Rimfire is everything I could have hoped for in a carbine variant. Not just the same caliber but the same, 30-round magazines, same grip, trigger, safety, slide/bolt lock, and magazine release. It’s incredibly light and maneuverable just like the PMR is. The 16″ barrel . . .
is threaded 1/2×28, and the whole shebang barely meets the 26″ minimum overall length requirement. I have over 1,000 rounds of various .22 WMR here, and will be spending Thursday, Friday, and Sunday putting this thing through its paces on an IPSC stage, at the range, and out in the woods. Watch this space, as a full review is forthcoming.
