    I have a CMR coming in a few days. I currently have a PMR.
    For the CMR does anyone know where I can get a muzzle brake and what is the ‘norm’ forend handle people on here are using?
    And any other basic advice/input on anything CMR?

    It doesn't really need a muzzle break. Shoot it and decide for yourself. If it was me, and I wanted an AFG, I would just get the factory one.

    I'm looking for one not because of recoil since there is next to none. Just looks ; )

    I think you'll be pleasantly surprised with the accuracy of the CMR-30. I put a red dot on mine and it's a real hoot to shoot, although it's accurate enough with open sights, particularly for those with younger eyes. I know better, but I keep thinking of 22 WMR as basically 22 LR, and of course it isn't. It's a good midpoint compromise between 22LR and 223. 22 WMR is a hot little round coming out of the 16" barrel. It's fun in the PMR, but there's a big difference in the energy when shot from a longer rifle barrel... and it's very nice that 30 of those rounds fits in a pistol grip magazine.

    Light weight. Collapsible stock. Good intermediate cartridge. It's just a great little carbine.

    Depending on how you think you'll use it, I'd recommend a small red dot sight or small scope (maybe a fixed power 4X32 or one of the 1-4X24 or 1-6X24 scopes although many of them have .223 bullet drop reticles). Maybe delay the optics purchase until your CMR-30 is in hand and you can check out the sight elevation. A forend grip if you like although I found the factory forend easy to shoot and it'd be even more comfortable with a flexible ladder rail cover. I added a Mapgul VFG and it's very comfortable and easy to shoot.


    As 850sub said, it doesn't need a muzzle device to tame recoil or muzzle flip. Follow up shots are fast, but you could add a muzzle device if that appeals to your aesthetic sense.

    At this point, I should probably get a roll top waterproof stuff sack with an improvised padded insert cut to fit the CMR-30 and a few spare mags and ammo, although that probably caters more to my imagined philosophy of use. Sadly, the actual POU is underappreciated fun gun that I should shoot a lot more than I do.

    Thanks for all the input! Got me excited to shoot!
    I will be adding pretty much what you have.
    I have a spare Vortex red dot I’ll add....and either the handle you have or another lower profile rail grip.
    I love my PMR handgun.....can’t wait to get this CMR this week.
    Will go plinking out on some average next weekend.
    Thanks again!
