The PLR-22 Pistol and the SU-22 Rifle are chambered for the popular and economical .22 Long Rifle cartridge (.22LR). Based on the 5.56mm NATO chambered PLR-16 pistol and SU-16 rifle, both models share many parts including the grips, and front and rear sights. The PLR-22 and SU-22 are not simple conversion kits, they are standalone firearms chambered for .22LR.
The PLR-22 and SU-22 operate by blowback action and have a 4140 steel bolt that rides on steel guide rails inside the polymer reciever. The ejector is attached to one of the guide rails and the recoil spring is located above the barrel. The cross-bolt safety and magazine release operate identically
to the PLR-16 and SU-16.
The PLR-22 and SU-22 will accept many of the same accessories as the PLR-16 and SU-16 including the slings, stocks, and compact forend (included with the SU-22 rifle). The rear sight is adjustable for windage and the front sight is adjustable for elevation. An integrated picatinny rail on top will accept a multitude of sighting options. The muzzle end of the barrel is threaded 1/2″-28 to accept standard attachments such as a muzzle brake. A 27 round semi-transparent magazine is included and it will accept magazines designed for the Atchison M-16 conversion.
