    I love this rifle! Its light weight, and the mag storage is awesome. I was wondering what experiences people have had with them. I got one after doing quiet a bit of research but there are no threads here, or videos on youtube, on the rifle's reliability.

    What do you guys that own one think about the rifle's accuracy, reliability, and functionality?

    thnx

    I've been researching them myself. Not sure which variant I would get, but I like what I see and read.

    I really like mine, I just wish i could get to the range with it...
    I even watched the Nutin Fancy review on it, and i have to say that its the only thing that i completely agree with him on. If you can stand his voice for 20min its an ok review. I cant find any torture test reviews on it.

    I really want one of these. I too would love to hear about some durability testing. Seems like a great rifle to strap onto my backpack.

    The only downside I've heard about them is barrel life. I am still interested in one myself so let us know how it works out over time.

    They are awesome until the frame breaks in the rear from the bolt punching through it! Also the life time warranty doesn't apply if you are the second owner. Lame!

    Would you say this is better than a Mini 14?
    Seems to be in the same price class.

    I would not say they are in the same class based on my research, not actual experience with either. I think the mini14 is certainly more rugged based on construction and lack of plastics. The kel tec is lighter and more portable but I don't think it has the range of the mini. Others who have experience on both platforms will chime in.

    I know the Kel-Tec is a long-stroke piston, just like the AK. It should be rather durable, hopefully ill get to shoot it tomorrow.

    I have seen some accuracy videos on line where some guys were getting 2in groups at 100yds. NuttinFancy seems to love it.

    The only things that I dont like about the mini are its mags. I think it would be better if it used AR mags.

    OK guys so I went to the range yesterday, and I finally got to shoot the Kel-Tec. It shot really well, had no problems with steel or brass cases, and the trigger breaks like a glass rod. BUT like a dummy I didnt bring a sight tool, or Phillips screw driver for the rear sight. The gun was adjusted so far to the right that at 50 yards 3 out of 20 rounds were on the paper.

    Over all I like the rifle, all i need now is a nice red dot on it for pig hunting.

    Sorry for not taking pics, my phone sucks at the moment so i cant post pics from it.
