Kel-Tec SU-16CA SU-16CA 10+1 223REM/5.56NATO 16"
by Charles E Date Added: Saturday 24 May, 2008
I bought a Kel-Tec SU 16 CA and took it to the range for a day of fun. Being new, I expected to find that the weapon was finicky with different ammunition (bullets, primers and powder combos). The gun worked every time - without fail - and gave me complete satisfaction from the first to the last round. A certain type of berdan primed russian ammo failed to fire but when I switched to CCI and WW boxprimed R-P and assorted military brass, the problems were solved. Also, when I field strppied the gun and got into the firing pin to clean the housing, performance increased remarkably.
One would think that an American-made weapon in the $550.00 plus category would be able to handle anything one would cycle through the action, but this high tech piece of equipment has a few idiosyncracies. Perahps, with more use, these will go away never to be re-visited. That is why we re-load our ammo and determine what our guns like to fire with utmost accuracy.
Even with this experience, I would recommend the Kel-Tec SU16 CA to a friend for it's looks, servicability, weight, compatability with availabe accesories and overall performance.
