Default My PLR-22 Review



Here is my review on the Kel Tec PLR-22.
It comes standard with iron sights and 1mag.

I installed the forend, its the same one that fits its older brother the PLR-16.
I also added a slingle point sling and the EOTECH.

I initially tried shooting it with the iron sights and I must say even though I could hit paper the groups were pretty wide spread. *After adding the EOTECH I could hit the bull each and everytime. *I was shooting at about 50ft at an indoor range. *So I definetly suggest adding some type of optics.

I shot Federal, CCI Mini Mags, and Subsonics. *I had a bit of a problem with the subsonics, however everything else functioned.

Another plus is that the barrel is already threaded so adding a muzzle brake or supressor wont be a problem. *

Overall I am happy with the PLR-22 so far, you definetly need to buy more mags-(it gets pretty old reloading 1 mag).

The forend also sports a standard rail to add lasers, lights, bipods whatever the shooter might want. *Just be sure not to add a vertical grip without the proper tax stamp!

Pricing was right around 300-
and spare mags can be found here at a resonable price:
Black, Smoke, or Clear.

Breakdown for cleaning is simple and overall its pretty light.
It is a very fun gun to shoot and it wont break the bank! *

I got to shoot a PLR-22 today and loved it. It is much lighter than the PLR-16 and much quieter too! ;D ;D My 10 yr old son decided I should get him one........right away! I would love to get one too, oneday. I loved how light and easy to handle it was over the PLR's I had shot before. I ran smoothly on several different types of ammo we used, no problem. I likey!!! Thanks to TxCajun and TheFallGuy for the use of it today at the Bayou Blast.

Nice PLR-22 videos! Thanks!

The shooting video in particular made me want the PLR-22 more than just seeing pictures and reading the specs.

I have a KTOG buddy with the Ruger Charger, and it's a great little bench rest .22 pistol. I'd like to put the PLR-22 up against it and see how well each does at 50 yards.

Thanks for all of the reviews here. I only saw this pistol for the first time today, but get this...the dealer has it listed at $525 ;D
Is there a ban that I haven't been told about going into law next week or is he just nuts?

Are you sure you weren't looking at the PLR-16? They usually sell for $500 to $600 depending on how they're equipped and how much markup the dealer is trying to make (quite a bit lately).

The PLR-16 was the original .223 version, and the .22LR PLR-22 was just introduced this past year.

Maybe THE DEALER thinks it's a PLR-16!

No, I afraid that's not the case. The big selling point to me was that it's a 22, because he knows I've been loving my gsg 5, and my Dad's old Marlin golden mountie.
I'm going back there today to see what he's thinking. I pretty sure he's hoping for just a quick "better buy this gun now while I can" response.
I will usually pay more for the customer service aspect, but there is zero customer service there so it's internet order for me.
