The PLR (Pistol, Long Range) was designed for recreational target shooting, and small game, varmint, or predator hunting. Due to the PLR's 9.25 in (235 mm) barrel, the 5.56×45mm bullet's velocity is slightly reduced compared to its velocity from a traditionally 20 in (510 mm) barrel.
The PLR-16 combines the multi-lug rotating bolt design and breech-locking system of the AR-15 with a gas piston system. The pistol accepts the same STANAG magazine that is used in the M-16, AR-15, and other NATO rifles chambered for 5.56×45mm.
The PLR-16's frame is constructed of reinforced polymer, making the pistol both durable and light-weight. The frame incorporates an M-1913-style Picatinny rail molded to the top of the receiver to accept various optical sights.
