Default Kel-Tec SU-16A

Hi everybody! Just wondering if anyone had any info, thoughts, comments or experience with this rifle? Possibly as a 'bug-out' rifle...??

It's a great rifle, perfect to stick in a backpack and take to the trails. They are dependable, lightweight, obviously collapsible and take AR magazines.

Unfortunately, some people try and make them into AR type rifles or tactical them out with rails and all sorts of geegaws.

I had one(SU16CA) and enjoyed it immensely. It's a great Get Out Of Dodge rifle, handy as all get out and will serve you well. Just remember to use it as it was designed and not to try and make it into something else.

If you want to transform it into something more tactical, just spend the extra money and buy or build an AR.

I agree with CA357. It is not a sustained fire battle carbine, but makes an outstanding "grab and go".

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!
