The PLR-16 is a gas operated, semi-automatic pistol chambered in 5.56mm NATO caliber. It was designed and intended as a long range target and hunting pistol. It has a conventional gas piston operation and utilizes the proven M-16 breech locking system. The rear sight is adjustable for windage. The front sight is of M-16 type. An integrated MIL-STD 1913 picatinny rail will accept a multitude of standard accessories. The muzzle end of the barrel is threaded .5-28 TPI to accept standard attachments such as a muzzle brake. Except for the barrel, bolt, sights and mechanism, the PLR-16 pistol is made entirely of high-impact glass fiber reinforced polymer.

We like our pistol caliber carbines, but we also like our rifle caliber pistols. Chambered in 5.56 NATO, the PLR16 is an excellent option for small game hunting, hiking, turning heads at range day or any situation that requires a rifle caliber in a pistol platform. It accepts standard AR-15 magazines and it's ready for customization to fit your needs.

    • Construction: the PLR16 is made of 4140 steel where it matters and high-strength, impact resistant Zytel where it sheds pounds
    • Take it hunting, mountain climbing, camping, back country exploring or whatever you can throw at it, the PLR16 is light, but she can handle it
    • Modular - although we do not recommend suppressing the PLR16, it features a 9 inches barrel that is threaded 1/2x28 to accommodate your choice of compensator or flash hider
    • Modular - we also offer an optional compact forend, sling mount and arm brace adapter kit to set it up for your needs, iron sights are provided, however there's an integrated Picatinny-style rail for mounting your favorite optic
    • Compact - in usual KelTec fashion, the PLR16 offers a lightweight, compact solution to a rifle caliber problem
    • Compact - although it has a stout, smooth and reliable gas system, this pistol stows nicely in a pack and comes with a flush-fit 10-rounds lead dispenser, or, you can run any AR-15 compatible magazines
