    Did a little math and stopwatch work. Got about 1200 rounds per minute.

    • smartacus

      awesome!
      that’s about the same rate of fire as a MAC-11

    • Tassiebush

      good work!

  • TheNotoriousIUD

    Thats cool as shiite.

    • iksnilol

      Could be quiet with 60 grain subsonics.

      • LV-426

        Who makes a subsonic 22 WMR?

        • John

          and why???

        • iksnilol

          Not as far as I know. Could make some if you got your hands on those Aguila 60 grain subsonic .22 LR bullets and pulled them and put them in .22 WMR cases. Could make it easier if you cast those bullets.

      • Tassiebush

        It’d be cool just for the versatility of the rifles in it if a mild load was made.To have the power of the mag but a mild .22lr like load as well would be cool.

        • iksnilol

          According to another poster there is an “Australian” load that is 45 grains subsonic. Made by Winchester Australia.

          • Tassiebush

            Ta for that.

          • Tassiebush

            Just grabbed a brick of them. Still waiting on the rifle but I have heard a good accuracy account about them.

          • iksnilol

            Kewl, maybe write a review?

            Get some of that sweet blog money. 😛

    • Tassiebush

      I sure want one of each sigh!

  • smartacus

    if it had a 60 round mag, it would last 3 seconds instead of 1.5

    • Edeco

      I’ve been wondering how much, if any, they could extend them and still be reliable. I have a couple of the mags here (was worried they’d be out of stock by the time I secure a CMR30), can’t tell from looking-at/poking them.

      • Nicholas Chen

        There is a way. The problem would be getting a longer spring,

      • smartacus

        yeah,with my PMR mags;
        i gotta load them with two thumbs pushing down both ends of the .22Mag evenly and tapping the back of the mag every 5 rounds.
        – But i can never fit a full 30 rounds without full on thumb punishment.

  • Griz

    1986 can kiss my ass, sometimes cool stuff like this makes the want list! This is a keltec mp7!

  • American Spartan

    Vote Trump/Cruz and you might be able to own one one day soon.

    • mikewest007

      “Vote Trump/Cruz and you might get shot with one one day soon.”
      #FTFY.

      • American Spartan

        You are a leftist hack.

        • mikewest007

          Ask Chuck Vacca what happens when an idiot with no experience gets his hands on a fully automatic weapon.
          Oh right, you can’t, he had a range accident involving an idiot with no experience handling a fully automatic weapon and caught a bad case of the deads.

          • American Spartan

            So one person who dies from is own negligence and we all have to suffer? Nope, he lend ahead of the muzzle, he got himself killed. You do not get to limit our rights because of his lack of attention. That “idiot” was a kid, but great to see you care so much about others.

          • American Spartan

            So because one person made a mistake we should all suffer? Yeah,no.

  • Mystick

    Too bad us non-government types will never be able to buy one…

  • Adam D.

    The CMR-30 is a really nice little firearm.
    With a short barrel chambered to a centerfire caliber like the FN 5.7 and matching
    polymer magazines with 20-40 capacity, it would make for a very dandy little hiking/fun gun.
    I know the reason they went with the WMR is the low cost,
    but this gun deserves a nice centerfire cartridge IMHO.
    The 5.7’s overall length is a tad bit longer, but I guess the platform could take it.
    Knowing the way Kel-Tec is, this will probably never happen, but it’s an exciting thought.

    • JoshCalle

      at that point why not just get a ps90 sbr though?

      • Adam D.

        Josh, this is like asking somebody who likes red wine over white that why
        he doesn’t drink beer instead. 🙂
        Simply because they are two intirely different things.

        IMO the Uzi/MAC/MP7 design format is the most (size) efficient PDW/SMG shape. The Singaporean mfr. ST Kinetics (a company of Singapore Technologies Engineering) has a very nice MP7 style platform that can be manufactured to accept both 5.7 and 9mm, but that design will most probably never find its way to the Western civilian shooting world,
        so there’s a good chance Kel-Tec’s design is the only hope of MP7 style PDW enthusiasts.
        HK’s approach on a civilian legal MP7 is well known
        (they also have a long history of messing up civilian versions with all sorts of politically correct design changes), B+T is yet to come out with something in either 5.7 or 4.6, and it’s not very likely that IWI will come out with a 5.8 Uzi Pro either.

  • Giolli Joker

    Cool, It’s just a pity that it’s only 45grs… 60 would have been better.

    • iksnilol

      60 grains would probably require a tighter twist rate to stabilize.

  • Tassiebush

    I need to look at my local shop shelf more closely. I think I saw a “weirdly long .22lr brick” the other day. Didn’t look closer as it said subsonic so I just assumed it was a new packaging set up.

  • Tassiebush

    Just bought a brick of 500. Hooray!

  • Glock Guy

    Where is the video where he shows how to make it fully automatic???
