Kel-Tec RDB
Unit of Measure:
Downward-ejecting bullpup. Features a rotary bolt with a spring loaded ejector and an extractor facing down. Spent case is pulled backwards along the top of the magazine and then ejected through a vertical chute. Hammer is U-shaped and runs outside the chute and above the magazine. Bolt travel is longer than traditional designs but well within the ergonomic constraints of a rifle. Picatinny rail allows the use of any aftermarket optical, electronic or flip-up sighting system. Backbone of the rifle is formed by the barrel and its extension which runs rearward to serve as bolt group guide and structural support for external housing which is made of plastic. Uses STANAG (M16 / Ar15 compatible) magazines and magazine release lever is centrally located in front of the magazine housing. To release the magazine, one has to push this lever backwards and this can be done by either non-firing hand or by the back of the firing hand depending on situation and user preferences.

    Let's get this out of the way.... want AR and AK guys to come together on the same side against a common enemy...... Bull pups. Never liked them. Just ugly. Was intrigued by the Steyer AUG when watching Die Hard as a kid like we all were because it was different. In the end give me an AR or an M1A or even an AK. Familiar, comforting. Everything about bull pups is just wrong! Who built it backwards? But I couldn't stop looking. After you've fired thousands of rounds through an AR, you get bored and get wandering eyes. Maybe if nobody knows I watched youtube videos comparing bull pups it'll be ok. Maybe if I just held one at a gun show. Eventually I had to admit it, I was curious about bull pups. So ugly and yet I was comparing the common bull pups available. Everyone likes to knock Kel Tec; it's easy to bash the looks unusual designs and build quality. I think their build quality is unfairly bashed. Would I take a Kel Tec into the mountains fighting enemies for 3 weeks of sustained fighting, no. But I think the RDB will stand up to anything any normal shooter will throw at it and ask for more. They have their fans and for good reason. Innovation, everyone says it. Kel Tec is making different fire arms from everyone else and it's AWESOME! Thank you. Yes stick to what's familiar and proven in battle when it comes to defense. But something different for the range is ok. This rifle rocks! I said it. Really easy to field strip and clean/ lube. I've had no malfunctions. Love that it ejects downward, makes sweeping brass at the range easy. Put a 1-6 LPVO on and was ringing steel at 100 yards in no time. Controls are intuitive once you've spent a little time familiarizing yourself with them. In the end I appreciate the innovation that Kel Tec brings to the industry. I've enjoyed owning this rifle. Don't get me wrong, anyone I know comes walking up I'm tossing it down a well picking up an AR and acting like I don't know anything about it. In all seriousness though the rifle has been 100 percent reliable so far. The quality is there on my sample of one and all the AR and AK shooters have enjoyed trying something different.
