    2016 SHOT Show: KelTec RDB

    The Keltec RFB (Rifle, Forward eject, Bullpup) is well known and has been available for some time.
    The much newer RDB (Rifle, Downward eject, Bullpup) was announced at the previous years show, but only in prototype form.
    This years Media Day was my first time to actually fire the RDB.

    At the same time that the RDB was first announced, they also had another version on display called the M43.
    This was meant to look like an old school design, wood stock and iron sights.
    This version may still be released in the future, but has not been developed further as of yet.





    One of the guns available to test had a can on the front. That seems to be a recurring theme this year. MANY vendors has suppressed guns at range day.

    I'll try and get more photos and more details at the actual show. It was a bit noisy at the range. (Not every gun was suppressed!)

    It makes no difference what men think of war. War endures. May as well ask men what they think of stone. War was always here. Before man was, war waited for him. The ultimate trade awaiting its ultimate practitioner. - Cormac McCarthy

    Yes, the case is drawn back over top of the mag and dropped down a narrow chute right at the butt.

    The push is on for the RDB first. They have actually shipped about 1000 already, so it is more that vapourware.
    The M43 is still a go, but will be towards the end of the year.
    They now also have a new variant, the RDB-C.
    C could stand for Compliant, or California, or ???
    Anyway, it does not have a free standing pistol grip.
    And it will also be available in 6.5 Grendel

    Once I get my photos tagged, I'll post here.

    The RDB-C is the first bullpup I've ever seen without a pistol
    Grip

    I'd like to try that to see how it feels. I don't always like pistol grips.
    Today could be the last day of the rest of your life.
