    The only thing inaccurate about the pmr is what you have read about it. I only have 2 boxes through mine and its way better than that.

    Don't know if any of you know this but keltecs main area of manufacturing is aircraft parts.All other business comes second.I got this info from a guy working at a gun store last week when I asked why they lag so far behind in demand.Guns are not a priority for them apparently.Current wait time for a sub2000 at his shop is about 1 year.

    Keltec's primary business is firearms manufacturing.

    Looked it up and there is a company called kel tech that makes aircraft parts but they're not in Fla and they spell their names differently.Hard to believe that someone in the biz could be so far off.

    I've wanted to buy their stuff a few times (KSG, the PMR specifically) but nowhere to be found. Never seen one. I still want to give both a try but think I will wait until the kinks get worked out, heard of issues with the KSG. Granted, never tried real hard as I've not had the extra $$ but ya know.

    Heard mostly good stuff about the PMR, I still want one to see for myself.

    Last year sometime, I had read that they had problems with heat treating the barrels. Those that had come from off site were wrong, in some way. They were lacking the ability to do it them selves.

    Hard to know if it's true or not, but the guy who gave me the info about aircraft parts also told me that KT has had problems with outsourcing.They outsourced parts to a company who in turn outsourced the work to another company.Problems followed of course and then lawsuits.

    you just gotta ask the right people at the right times...personally i think kel tec is being very smart in a sense. think about it. if they hardly release any of their high demand items, they stay high demand and they can jack the price up. if it only costs them $60 to produce a sub-2000 but they sell em for $430 why would they make them easier to get and let the price fall to $320 or lower?

    this is also coming from someone who asked the right person at the right time and was able to get himself one a few months back

    Keltec sells to distributors at a fixed price, regardless of production capacity. They are not responsible for (nor do they benefit from) retail prices or price gouging by dealers.
