This SU-16C model had been on my list of rifles I wanted to buy for a long time, primarily because of its exceptional light weight and ability to fold up into a backpack. I just have a thing for folding rifles I guess. I took it to the range today and put 300 failure free rounds of M885 62g green tip through it. Frankly, I was really surprised at its lack of failures. I know that Kel Tec has made very small, incremental improvements to this model over the years. Perhaps they have finally gotten it right? Only time and many more rounds will tell. But I\'m impressed so far. The shell deflector on the charging handle does a great job of keeping hot brass out of your face and is standard on the C model. There is also now a sliding piece of plastic on the right side of the bolt carrier which seems to serve the purpose of pushing the bold forward, which is necessary, to make reassembly easier. The manual does not indicate it\'s purpose, nor does it mention that you have to lift it\'s front edge to slide the plastic up past the bolt face lugs in order to access the takedown pin for removal of the firing pin and bolt assembly. In truth, reassembly is a little bit troublesome until you get the gist of it. The included rear sight is junk and I replaced it with Teck Sight\'s SU-16EL, but it was $80 extra. Worth it though, because now with fully adjustable rear and front sights, I was able to dial in 1-2\" groups at 30 yards. I have heard complaints about this rifle not being exceptionally accurate (not that you would expect sub moa from this kind of firearm), but maybe I got a good one. My only real complaint, if you can call it that, is that given this rifles light weight, recoil is quite stout. Because the C model barrel is threaded, I will try my silencerco hybrid on it when I get a chance. It would seem an ideal platform for a suppressor since it is piston driven. That keeps the bolt pretty clean which is a really nice feature in a gun this lightweight and at this price point. So far, my experience with it has been positive. If you want or need a rifle as powerful as any AR but need it to fold up into a backpack, this is a pretty darn good choice. Plus it takes standard AR magazines. I tried it with about five different varieties of mags and it accepted all of them without complaint. Though the magazines do not drop free when you press the mag release button. They will require a slight tug.

Bud's was great as always. The rifle came with a receiver screw missing so I had to wait until one came from Kel-Tec before I could fire the rifle. I had to pay for the screw, so much for Kel-Tec customer service everyone rages about. I contacted them via e-mail because I did not feel like waiting on the line on hold for an hour. Kel-Tec never got back with me. The rifle itself is great, fired all the type of ammo I put through it but I will not buy anther Kel_tec product due to my experance with Kel-Tec customer service. I am giving three stars but not for the product but for the corporate culture at Kel-Tec.

Purchased a second one and really like it! My first one has over 1000 rounds thru it and no problems!
This is a unique very versatile carbine rifle that takes any AR15 / M16 type MAG. I really don't use
the bi-pod can't comment on it and mounted a nice scope on the top rail and it's perfect!
Folds up and right into a backpack!

Great rifle. Shots on point no jamming or issues after running about 200 rounds. Portable and easy to handle

Once again, another great weapon from Kel-Tec! The ability to have the stock folded and fire the weapon creates many options for storage and accessibility. All rounds go down range in a tight group with no problems. As owner of this weapon I can say "for the money it takes to buy this weapon it is better than an AR-15 platform." With that being said...the AR-15 platforms are the best $1000-$2000 weapons on the open market PERIOD.

I bought the Kelt-Tec from Buds 3 months or so ago- first the gun, love it, its made in the USA by a USA company, important to me! bought to use the iron sights but a tactical scope is a good add on- folds like a charm and can go in back pack and the C model has a firing while folded option which is a plus- great gun, switched the 10 round mag for a 30 and that solved the reloading so much issue- all around a great gun, no jams or misfires- an AR at a lot less than the Sig,and SW which are its competitors- good deal-

Follow up on my purchase and initial problematic range visit. I've since put several hundred rounds of Fiocchi, PMC and Remington ammo through the 16c and have only had one FTE stovepipe in the bunch. For the ability to throw it in a backpack/duffle bag, it is a neat contraption. Takedown/ cleaning is easy. Accurate enough group to group well and hit center mass at 100 yards using iron (plastic in this case) sights. With an elevated rail, you can use both optics and the iron sights. For what it is, would recommend.

I love this gun. I have completely modified it to look like an AR. Funny thing is this gun is more accurate than my Smith and Wesson AR. Also, easier to clean. Great gun. I highly recommend.

I've had it about a year, shot several thousand rounds. It doesn't like rapid fire with cheap steel cased russian ammo, but likes avery brass ammo I've tried.

Using Bushnell TRS-25 red dot rang a 1 foot diameter plate at 220 yards 20 times in 20 shots taking my time. Was thinking of getting an AR, but since to shoot as good as this Kel-Tec I'd have to pay a thousand dollars more, not gonna bother.
