Personnaly, I didn't see any FTF's. The only issue I noticed was the trigger pull wasn't as smooth due to the linkage, but that could be addressed over time tinkering with it. Having seen a number of 10/22 bullpup conversions, I wouldn't be surprised if he or someone else came up with a workable AR bullpup. I am just surprised I haven't seen anyone else try it.

Interesting. I've been thinking of a 10/22 BP, do they work well? I really want to see how it stacks against a M&P15-22.

Most are not, but the Keltec is.



The charging handle is movable and it ejects out the front, hence RFB (Rifle Forward eject Bullpub)

Two problems with the Kel-Tec.

Still pretty expensive.

Kel-Tec Rifles do not exist. They are the stuff of myth and legend.

That RFB has been out for a while. Anyone know why they are still scarce and expensive?

Interesting. When I bought my hard chrome PF9 my LGS told me to prepare to wait around a year(2010). A month or so later it came in. My LGS said special order items from them are always slow, he was really surprised it came in so quickly. What is the current lead time on an RFB?

I sir, am extremely jealous. How'd you become of it and if you don't mind, what was the cost?
