I realy like this type of rifle Kel Tec makes, but it just doesn't look like it would be comfortable, is it?

I just recently modified it and will shoot it soon for the first time with the new forend and foregrip. I assume you are talking about the kinda awkward stock. It is not the most comfortable, but it didn't bother me too much when I shot it. This is a sport utility rifle, and the bonuses of the stock are the folding capability (easily fits in a larger backpack, and also shoots in the folded position), and the fact that when in stock condition, the rifle weighs 4.7 pounds. It feels a tad front heavy after I modified it, but it still feels comfortable in my hands. You can also put a pistol grip/ar stock on it, which is something I might do to balance it out a little. People say that it is stupid to modify these so much, and that you should just build an AR if you want to do all these modifications. I do see their point, and I wasn't planning on doing all this when I bought the rifle, but I just can't help myself

It is a great, accurate little rifle.

Better start looking for one, because apparently the Charlie model is getting harder and harder to find!

FYI, I have a PLR-16 and decided to put the "Charlie" stock on it. However, since my PLR has a 9" barrel, adding the stock would make it a SBR. I decided to go for it and sent in Form 1 and my check for the stamp to the BATF earlier this week. Essentially, when I add the folding stock I'll have your rifle with with a shorter barrel. Interestingly, K-T now makes the gun I'm building (SU-16D) but I could never get any info from them on how to buy one. My guess is it's restricted to LEO's, the military and that sort.

FWIW, it turns out it's actually cheaper to pay the tax ($200), buy the stock ($80) and fore end ($45), then install the stock & fore end on my PLR ($475) than to buy the SU-16D (MSRP about $900). Also, I'd STILL need to pay the Class III tax on the SU-16D if I could get one, so that would add an additional $200 to the cost of the SU-16. $1,100+ vs. $800+ and I'd have to wait on ATF approval in either case... no brainer!

My avatar here to the left is how my PLR-16 currently looks but this is how my PLR will look when I install the stock...
