Kel-Tec PLR22 22LR Pistol 27+1 Capacity
[PLR22]
$284.00
by James K Date Added: Sunday 22 August, 2010
First Impressions

I just got home from the range with this new toy and I have ZERO reservations in saying- This is the most fun I have ever had with a firearm! When I picked this up from my FFL/gunsmith I noticed just how badass this weapon looks. I looked at the magazine and noticed that its layout and dimensions were identical to the .22LR mags I already owned for my CMMG AR Conversion kit. I brought her home and loaded rounds successfully with the CMMG mags. Life is good. The sights on her are adjustable with a removable blade in the back and an "AR" style post sight in the front. The PLR also has a rail mount on top of the gun to attach optics to it. I have an inexpensive red dot sight coming soon for it. The PLR also has a fore grip available but I have been advised not to add this as it could be considered a shroud thereby turning it into an "assault weapon". I have opted for a barrel clamp with 3 rails for her to add on an LED light and laser sighting system on.

Reliability

In my experience .22 autoloading pistols have been finicky at best. This is not one of those guns. I started off with CCI MiniMags as I would normally do with a .22LR pistol and ran off a magazine with no problems. I then switched to the Federal 550 bulk pack and proceeded to run off 75 rounds between 3 magazines as fast as I could pull the trigger without any hint of failures. I was awestruck at the reliability of this pistol right out of the box with no break in period. I then ran off about 3/4 of a brick through her with no issues. She went bang on every SINGLE trigger pull.

Ergonomics

At almost 3lbs unloaded with all the weight in the barrel this isn't a pistol I would want to hold pointing down range all day with a traditional pistol grip/stance. It get a little bit front heavy. I found holding it with an "assault" style stance with a hand on the pistol grip and a hand on the mag well worked great and was much more comfortable.

Accuracy

I got great groups with this pistol, even with a steady shot transmission of about 2 rounds per second. I consistently got groups of better then 2" at 50'. I did a magazine dump of 25 rounds and got 22 of them in the center mass (2"circle) of a "blue man" target at 20'. I think the weight of the pistol combined with the 10" barrel really shines here. I can't wait to take her to a silhouette match.
