Great lookoing gun. Can't wait to shoot it. Used the layaway plan to secure my purchase, otherwise I'd never have the money at the right time. Worked out great. First time gun purchase from Bud's. I'll be back!

Haven't shot it yet but my initial impressions are that its a great gun. For some reason there are a lot of weld lines where the sandwich shell injection molds come together. I know it can be done better but for some reason I guess they aren't to concerned with that. It's not a big deal, I'm just going to sand them down soon to smooth everything out. Extremely light weight. Great survival/backpack/camping gun due to it's folding characteristic. Can also fire while folded if you feel like that's something you'd like.

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!
