Clever little gun. Easy to handle and fun to shoot. Had a few issues early on. The fold out bi-pod was a bit awkward to deploy and store back away. Just a matter of breaking it in. After several trips to the range I have no more problems. I thought the legs of the bi-pod were flimsy but they surprised me, holding up well. Also messed up the retainer spring on the pin that locks the stock open. Kel-Tec sent me a spare. I did buy a 30rd. magazine, no problem running it through without flaw. Also mounted an inexpensive red dot sight, makes a good combination.

It is very accurate, and the fact that it can use AR15 Magazines make it a real winner.

When I bought this, the price was around $550 and was a good price for an introductory rifle. The quality left a little to be desired, but cosmetic, for example, the barrel wasn't centered in the plastic and all the molded pieces had visible flashing. IT accepts the AR magazines so it was easy to find a preban 30R mag. I eventually sold it back to the dealer and got a very good price for it.

This is a great .223 ranch rifle to walk a property with for varmint or light target shooting. The polymer is pretty standard and provides a light weight feel.

Kel-Tech is a true innovator. Fabulous, accurate Rifle. Great outdoors, home defense and as a trunk gun. And...so accurate just w/her Iron Sights!

Ordering my Kel-Tec SU16A from Bud's Gun shop was a great decision. Easy order and payment delivery as expected gun arrived in great new condition. The manual and instructions from Kel-Tec were clear and explained the folding and deploying and stowing of the bi-pod were clear as well. Ran a patch with oil down the bore and headed to the range with both 10 round mags loaded with .556 jacketed rounds and rifle fired as expected right off the bat for two rounds then "click" FTF. I pushed the "plastic mag up from the bottom, cycled the bolt, fired two more rounds..."click" again. Had to cycle after two to three rounds on both mags of .556. The .223 performed a little better but mags kept failing to stay seated in the mag well and I had to keep slapping the mags from the bottom to get rounds to feed. Pretty disappointing, but the rifle is neww, only put about 40 rounds through and my buddy sent me 3 30 round pmags and a metal 10 round mag and I will see how that runs. I really like the design of the rifle, bi-pod, mag release ability to fold, etc. My only other negative is the front sight being hard to see ..rear ghost ring is fine. As others have suggested I think a little dot of paint on front sight should help but I plan to put a small Bushnell or Sig optic on anyway. I would at this point say I am very pleased with my purchase. I wish the mags provided were better quality but that to me is a small matter. .

works great.the stock mags were a bit snug, but after a little massaging work great.it functioned better with the poly kel tec mags than the metal mags from pro mag which were a little loose and failed to feed a few times.

I bought this Kel-Tec SU-16A SU-16A 10+1 223REM/5.56NATO 18.5" from Bud's as one of my first Kel_tec weapons. It has proven to be all that Thought it would be at a great price.

Bought this as a curiosity. A foldable .223. Used it as a truck BOB gun for a few months. Not bad at all. No issues with any kind of ammo. It did have an issue seating some AR steel surplus mags. I traded it towards an AR when the AR prices came down.
Scott K on 02/24/2017

This is a light firearm. While not an AR it is rated .223/.556 so I expect it is robust despite all the "plastic". Recoil acceptable, having the mags in the stock doesn't become annoying and is good for having plenty of rounds, especially if you start with a 30 rounder. Sights are not good but with some fiddling make this perfectly fine. I zeroed to 100 yards with minor effort and it shoots (I shoot with it) a nice grouping and the gun goes bang every single time.

    Jay, unfortunately these are hard to find at the moment. You can click on notify me when available and buds will email you when they receive a shipment of these in. I'd also recommend checking a website called gunbr0ker. They're a site that allows private owners and small shops to sell their products, so they usually have rare and hard to find firearms and accessories. Sorry but hope this helps.
