The PLR-16 is a gas operated, semi-automatic pistol chambered in 5.56 mm NATO caliber. It is intended to be the ideal silhouette shooting and hunting pistol. The rifling is 1 turn in 9 inches, right hand twist. The PLR-16 has a conventional, long-stroke gas-piston operation and utilizes the proven Johnson/Stoner breech locking system. The rear sight is adjustable for windage. The front sight is similar to an AR-15 style rifle, and adjustable for elevation. An integrated MIL-STD-1913 Picatinny rail will accept a multitude of standard accessories. The muzzle is threaded 1/2-28 TPI to accept standard attachments such as a muzzle brake or flash hider. Except for the barrel, bolt, sights, and mechanism, the PLR-16 pistol is made entirely of high-impact glass fiber reinforced polymer.

The accessories available for the PLR-16 include forend with Picatinny rail on the bottom, scope rings, dynamic deflecting operating handle, single point sling, and a muzzle brake specifically design for the 9.2" barrel of the PLR-16.

This gun is awesome. I'm not really a 5.56 fan but thought I need one to add to the arsenal. I have the .22lr also so I wanted the big bro. version. Took me 2 years to snatch one up from buds. It comes with a 10 round mag but doesn't matter you can run any AR15 mag through it. When I got it in. I didn't have 5.56 so I used my son's bush master mag and .223. It was flawless. The muzzle flash is some thing else. Friends call it the flame thrower. Now I'm waiting patiently for buds to get more in. I will definitely buy another one.

Buds is a great place to purchase firearms. They typically have the lowest prices and they always have fast shipping. This was my third purchase and I plan on purchasing many more firearms from buds in the future. This is the second PLR-16 I have owned and could not be more happy with it. I noticed Buds had them in stock and quickly placed my order and received the pistol 7 days later. The pistol arrived with a damaged box but the pistol itself was in 100% condition. I ran 100 rounds PMC on the way home from the transfer with about 50% reliability. Lots of feeding issues. I expected the malfunctions so I took it home and thoroughly cleaned and lubed the pistol and after that it has ran flawlessly through several hundred rounds. I highly recommend this PLR16 and Buds to anyone.

A really cool gun and very light. The recoil is not as bad as expected. I will carry in my car with a 30rd magazine when I am driving at night, as well as shooting for fun. As with all Kel Tec products, there is a lot of plastic,however, speaking as an engineer, it appears to be fairly well made. Make sure that you order the Kel Tec muzzle brake for the gun!

I have wanted one of these for a long time. I finally made up my mind to get one about two years ago right when the supply dried up. They have still been available on some of the auction sites since,but this is the first time to my knowledge that they have been back at Buds. I was a little short of money when I saw the ad so Bud's layaway saved the day for me. Good thing, because they were gone in a flash.
The gun is great fun to shoot and more accurate than I am. All I had when it arrived was steel case and it definitely does not like that ammo. I got some brass and it runs smooth as silk. Well worth waiting for in my book.
