I picked up this new Keltec CMR 30 in 22 Mag under their Mil/LE program for $517. It was worth every penny. The gun is very light (4.4lbs w/ red dot and magnifier) has a great trigger and the accuracy is crazy. Using the Aimpoint 3x and red dot, it shot 1 hole groups at 25 yds with 3 different brands of ammo. I will test it at 50 and 100 yds in a few weeks. 31 rds of 22 mag with a spare mag holding another 30 rds makes for a nice hiking, truck, or camp gun.

Lots of fun, especially when shortened

I like mine, bought a PMR-30 first then the CMR a few years later whenI found one at a fair price.
While the PMR had a long break in, the CMR ran great first time out.
Maybe it’s the difference between the hybrid system in the pistol vs the straight blowback of the CMR.
Light, compact, 30 rounds, accurate, what’s not to like? Great trigger too...

Needs factory braced pistol configuration.

It will be a while before I start eyeing one of them again, as I ended up getting a savage 93 to satisfy my magnum rimfire needs.

My only concern with the cmr30 is potential accuracy. 1hole at 25yds is a great start. If it stays on a dip-can or better at 100, you're in business.

This is going to be my old man can’t hold a real rifle home defense gun in a few decades. Was tempted to sell at high prices but I might never be able to get my hands on one again.  No jams shooting CCI and Fiocchi. Surprised at the bark, much louder than a 22lr.

That is sweet looking any plans for a front grip?

@NukeFromOrbit

Who'd you have cut and thread the barrel?

Morgan Richey of Class III Machining did the work - Ohio to Texas and back in a week, and top-notch quality. I found his listing the EE. Highly recommended!



Added the Wilson Combat folding grip to my SBR, kinda gives it the MP7 feel. I do like it very much, it's light and comfortable in use.

OP... does your CMR run OK?  I bought one for my wife last summer.  I don’t think it ever made it through a magazine without some sort of a failure.  It was best with CCI 40 grain ammo, worst with Winchester 40 grain.  I couldn’t find any 50 grain ammo to try.  After four or five trips to the range she lost interest and we sold it.

So we had a few hundred rounds of various 22 Mag ammo and no gun.  Local pawn shop had a new Rossi 22 WMR bolt gun, for $169 it was a no brainer.

It looks great! Thanks for the info.

Really like the way it sets up with a short barrel.

First trip with the short barrel and a can ended up with a broken extractor. Call to Keltec and they sent replacement parts ASAP and free of charge. Hopefully a new extractor will work with it suppressed.
