There have been talks over the years of a .22lr version of the KelTec PMR-30, and the P17 appears to be the answer. Following the normal KelTec naming convention, the P17 is a .22lr with 16+1 capacity. Out of the box, it comes with three magazines, adjustable fiber optic sights, Picatinny accessory rail, and a threaded barrel.
MSRP is $199.
Here’s what KelTec has to say about it:
If you’re in the market for a 17-round, compact .22LR pistol with more bells & whistles than a Christmas Day parade, then the P17 is definitely for you! Oh and with an MSRP of $199, you can’t afford to pass one up!
At less than 14-ounces fully loaded, and barely longer than a dollar bill, the P17 is concealable for pretty much anyone. Just don’t forget it’s there when you need it! The threaded barrel, Picatinny-style accessory rail, ambidextrous safety, ambidextrous magazine release and three (3) 16rd magazines come standard. That’s a ton of value added in such a small package. And did we mention the price?
Don’t let the small size fool you. This little pistol is a tack driver. The excellent trigger, fiber optic front sight and adjustable rear sight help you extend the P17’s range. It’s a handy little .22LR that builds confidence and burns bull’s eyes.
Every tool has a purpose and having the right tool for the job sets you up for success. Its size, weight, and caliber are the perfect combination for training that new shooter in your life. For more experienced shooters looking to hone their skills, the P17 is also a great training tool for when you’re on a budget.
