Are there threaded barrels available for the PMR-30? I was thinking there were none available but the youtube link seems to prove otherwise.

I don't know about the supressor, but seeing two PMR-30s in the same place at the same time, now that's news!

I was told not to use mine unless the barrel is at least 18 inches. That might only apply to my can. I really don't know.
Did your can manufacturer tell you that or did Kel-Tec?

Honestly, watching the youtube video they guy shooting the suppressed PMR doesn't seem to be having any problem with blowback. Maybe he took those problem into account when designing that can?

Make the video larger and focus on the shooters face. He's getting a face full with each shot. He even seems like he flinches from the back-blast.

I didn't see too much back blast hitting his face. But maybe.

I'll let you know how it goes when I test one myself, hopefully soon. I was sceptical that it could be done safely and pleasantly (to the shooter). But Thompson machine insisted they could do it.

Unless yo just plain run into an emergency and must pull the trigger, always, always always use safety glasses when shooting, especially pistols.

Had a double charged .45 case grenade on me a few weeks ago, blew the CM shooting star mag out, reseated the next round 1/8 further in and scorched the bullet blasted the welded base off the mag, launched the mag spring 20' away, filled my action with scorched brass granules cut my face in 4 places, punched through my nostril so my nose was bleeding internally and externally, put 3 scratches into and imbedded another chunk of brass in my safeties, without safeties, at least one of those would have gone through my lower eyelid and probably punctured the eyeball.

Scared the heck out of me and convinced me of the need to protect my eyes well when shooting.


That said, being that the .22 mag is hypersonic, it will always be somewhat loud and that it is a hybrid action, you probably do not want to deliberately increase the pressures, might take it, might not. Get a .22lr for your can.

lordy, you do not even have to look at his face... the blowback is clearly visible coming at him...
