    The PLR-16 is essentially the same as the SU-16 series. Put a short barrel and a pistol grip on the PLR-16 and voila, it's a PLR-16. Well, the barrel is a little hard to swap, but you can mix and match lots of these other pieces. The SU-22 isn't much different from the SU-16 either. As Kel-Tec seems to be defining the current state of the art in firearms, I'd be surprised if they feel the need to copy anyone else's designs.

    The problem is that Kel-Tec is a small company that makes their firearms in batches, and can't keep up with demand. The possibilities are wide open for so many of their firearms, but they just can't make them fast enough.

    He must have just made a typo because the PLR is most definitely made by Kel-Tec, not Ruger. Ruger copies Kel-Tec, not the other way around.
