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.

"This is a great rifle, (highly suggest the stock adapter) its lighter than the m4 shorter and as long as you install an npas, its a beast on the cqb field (especially with the stock off), oh and did I forget to mention cheaper. Yeah the cooldown is REAL, but there are was to improve that with new valves, but its fine unless your using full auto. But its not like your actually going to use any gbr on full auto very much in a skirmish anyway, (its mostly just there for sh^#$ and giggles anyway), (and yes, its very good for that). On the subject of magazines, mine uses the msk magazine, it's a stubborn fit at first, you just need to wear it in. The recoil is great though, puts a smile on my face every time. most people don't know about the bolt lock, yes it has a functional bolt lock. I found out because I watched a review on the real steel version. Its between the magwell and the trigger guard, its not obvious but it is accurate to the real one. Despite the fact that aftermarket rail systems aren't readily available, if you do some research, you will find some options, though they might need some fitting. Even so, the PLR 16 with the handgaurd taken off and stock adapter installed looks really good, and unique af too. Just make sure to clean and lube it when you first get it, but same goes for any gbr, so I wouldn't count that against it. Huge plus, it looks and feels real, its easy to maintain and operate in either hand, (just make sure not to put your thumb behind the bolt handle when you shoot it). Its a solid buy, I have no doubt in the receiver, and your almost gaurenteed to be the only one on the field with one of these, (which is a breath of fresh air among the sea of m4's).
"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 :)
"probably one of the best GBB airsoft guns I have ever used. even though the orange flash hider wasnt necessary (they could've easily painted the thread cover) it was pretty cool to remove it and fire it with a mock suppressor that i have some foam in (don't ask me how, just roll with it) the gun sounds AMAZING for a gun that is 90% plastic (pretty strong plastic too) and it sounds almost like the real thing if it were silenced with the foam silencer (realistic bullet crack included) the full auto is a nice touch as well even though the original wasn't intended for full auto, it is still a nice feature. the magazine it came with is perfect, no leaks, somewhat hi cap and it came with its own speedloader and it is compatible with WE M4 30 round mags which is a nice touch.
my personal gripe with the weapon is that it doesn't have a bolt catch, which is fine because it seems to me that the PLR-16 could be modified to fit a thompson M1A1 or the Tommy gun for the newbies out there.
overall, it is a nice weapon to get for the beginners out there who want to start off with a good secondary or a good CQB primary, and i hear that there is a stock adapter somewhere that can be used to the gun so there is that
