    Nice! Talked with a fellow at the range today who had a PLR-16, impressive piece of machinery, indeed. Is the PLR-22 out yet? or widely available?

  • Our Kel-Tec PLR 22 just arrived. Hooray! It is a load of fun!

  • Nik

  • I bought my PLR 22 a few weeks ago. It was very picky with Remington ammo, you know that Wally World 550 pack. It jammed every other round after about 20 shots I stopped shooting and I took it into back into Bear Arms N. Scottsdale AZ where the manager took in in back, lubed it up and messed with it. He gave me a box of CCI ammo and told me to try those. I tried my other box of Federal 550 bulk and they worked just fine after a good lube job. Everyone who wanted to shoot it, got to, we all loved the ease and cost effectiveness of shooting that many rounds. My buddy wants to buy one after he put two magazines through it.

    For the money I am happy to own the PLR 22. Also, thanks Bear Arms in Scottsdale for your service and honest feedback. They did tell me up front that .22’s are known for ammo pickiness.

    monkey13days, couldnt find anything under your user name, past or present. Please email me info on this directly.

    Will the plr 22 pistol grip fit the plr 16 rifle? do they make a 22 conversion kit for the plr 16?

  • Billy

    I am unsure of conversion kits, but the SU-22 Pistol grip w/t collapsible AR Stock is the exact same mechanism for the SU-16. The SU-16 and 22 are mostly interchangeable in parts.

    Google the Kel-Tec website. You can inquire to them as of specifics. That’s what you should do anyway, because any of us random people could feed u a load and you spend your money on wrong info.
