The Kel-Tec PLR-22 is a semi-automatic large-frame pistol chambered in .22 LR. Except for the action and caliber, the PLR-22 has similar features to the PLR-16. Instead of a gas-operated system, the PLR-22 uses a blowback operating system where the energy from igniting the cartridge propels the projectile and pushes the bolt back.
Features include a lightweight polymer frame putting it around 2.8 pounds. Its rear sight is adjustable for windage and the front for elevation, but it also has a Picatinny rail for easy mounting of a scope or sights. It has a threaded muzzle for attaching accessories like a flash hider or muzzle brake. The barrel and rail are bare, but handguards are available. And, it comes with a 26-round magazine. Kel-Tec recommends the PLR-22 for competitive shooting, plinking or hunting small game.
