SOCOM Gear Kel-Tec Licensed PLR-16 Airsoft GBB AR Pistol - Black

The Kel-Tec PLR-16 belongs to a family of firearms commonly known as AR-Pistols in which a weapon with a pistol configuration is chambered in a rifle cartridge. Short for Pistol, Long Range, the PLR-16 is a gas operated, piston-driven, semi-automatic pistol meant for silhouette shooting and varmint hunting. Utilizing a long stroke gas-piston and a short travel bolt, Kel-Tec was able to significantly reduce the size of the weapon even though it fires the same round as the familiar AR-15 rifle. Further improvements have been made to greatly reduce the overall weight of weapon by utilizing advanced high-impact polymers on the majority of the gun.

With collaboration between SOCOM Gear and Kel-Tec directly, the gas blowback airsoft variant of the pistol is a 1:1 scale replica that fully resembles the actual weapon it was modeled after. The airsoft PLR-16 features a fiber reinforced polymer receiver, aluminum barrel, steel barrel nut, and steel piston tube. Internally the pistol features a high kick bolt (HKB) and gas system that is compatible with standard WE-Tech M4/M16 magazines. This GBB pistol also field strips and disassembles just like the real thing for easy maintenance.

"Love this gun! Gets tons of compliments on the field and also gets tons of kills. Only bad thing is the mag cool down but nothing hpa cant fix :)

"Fairly thorough review:
I've used this in 2 backyard skirmishes, an event at my local field, and put a total of about 1000 bbs through it.


-Nice kick, beats a 22

-Accepts CO2 magazines

-Very solid build

-VERY fun to shoot

-Magazines must be modified to work (Accepts WE M4 GBB mags, but with the Gen 2, which you'll want, you need to trim the gas output valve to be about the same height as your valve on the mag that came with the gun, a Version 1).

-Stock magazine holds 20 rounds, the 30 rounders you can purchase don't do much to improve on-hand ammunition. (POSSIBLE PRO).

-Limited skirmishability, where I live, there are no CQB fields. This results in a higher expenditure of BBs per target, unless you catch them by suprise. I've found a 20 rounder is good for about 3 people, assuming they call their hits.

-Regassing magazines and refilling them can take some time, the BBs are somewhat hard to get in, and if you have two back-to-back games, you may find you can't fill your mags before you start.

-HORRENDOUS cooldown on auto.

Some notes:
-Get silicone, comes unlubricated.

-Propane is cheaper, but a pain to reoil and regass on the field unless you have time or a carry bottle

-Full auto will put out about 5 bbs before cooldown gets you. Have a fast index finger and tap fast on semi, you'll be a little better off.

-Get extra magazines unless all you want to do is target shoot or 1 on 1.

-Be very careful if you choose to modify the new magazines.

-Firing V2 magazines without trimming them damaged my bolt's valve. Trim them before you shoot them (how you do it is up to you,DISCLAIMER: I'M NOT RESPONSIBLE IF YOU DAMAGE YOUR STUFF)

-There is indeed a bolt catch, in the form of a tab on the top of the magazine

OVERALL- Worth the 175, but in hindsight I should have bought a Tokyo Marui pistol. :| You won't regret the purchase, but you might wonder.

Thanks for reading, hope this influences your decision to purchase or not.

"So I just find out just to getting the stock adaptor for this gun from socom gear isn't an opinion the United State has made it harder to get any kind of guns air guns and real gun parts in the Country and could take up to 3 to 4 month to get them depending where your buying them from. The only place where I found the Socom gear plr-16 stock adaptor was on uk and not just the redwolfairsoft website witch is weird but I found out why it's so hard to get it. It's hard to get and find because it has to be aporved by U.S. Customs and by the U.S. government and the Feds and ATF if it isn't approved its not coming in why won't it because the butt stock is real steal and can easy be put on a real Plr-16 which it now makes it a SBR Small Barreld rifle and it can't be any shorter then 16 inches (40.6 cm) or overall length of less than 26 inches. And to do it you need a SBR license lol witch cost a lot to have lol and to tell you the truth the stock adaptor cost more then the gun does which I probley won't by it now and yes I know there is airsoft but use your head any body could buy the butt stock and put it on a real Plr and that's illgel
