RMR-30 Prototype!!!

These photos are of a prototype RMR-30, a carbine version of the Kel-Tec PMR-30. How cool is this?

It is being designed by Tobias Obermeit, whom I interviewed on the blog recently. The dimensions look similar to the H&K MP7 (assuming equivalent barrel length). I like the H&K-esque collapsible stock, the generous rails and ambidextrous charging handle. It looks like a lot of fun 🙂

I think they should sell this with a 16″ barrel with permanently attached flash hider, thus making it legally slightly shorter than a 16″+flash hider.

UPDATE: Kel-Tec says that availability and price info to be released at 2011 SHOT show.

UPDATE: What the RMR-30 would look like in black (photoshop).

[ Many thanks to Drew for emailing me the photos. ]

    I'D LOVE TO SEE KELTEC MFG A MODEL RMR-30, ALL BLACK, 16-1/4" REMOVEABLE BARREL (FLUTED AS AN OPTION) SURVIVAL RIFE IN A PLASTIC CASE WITH HOLES IN THE CASE FOAM FOR A SCOPE AND EXTRA MAGAZINES. THIS WOULD BE AN EXCELLENT ALTERNATIVE TO THE HENRY REPEATING ARMS AR-7 IN .22 LR. A PICCATINY RAIL ON THE BOTTOM OF THE RIFLE WOULD BE AN EXCELLENT LOCATION TO MOUNT LIGHTS AND LASERS. IF THE CASE AND RIFLE FLOATED- ALL THE BETTER. I'M DREAMING, JIM G.
