    If he has it in his hands why did he mistakenly post a picture of the Target version?

    Standard publicity shot, they've just copied and added the company name to.

    Classic rape the market for profit, there's always going to be someone who wants to be the first owner of the shiny new toy........

    Not that we haven't seen the market being priced ridiculously recently..:rolleyes:

    I almost LOL'ed when I saw that. Don't get me wrong, I have 3 KT's and love 'em, but for that price, I'll take an M1A any day of the week.

    I wonder about this.....if he didn't want to take it out of the box, then fine. But he could have taken the time, for such a wonderful gun, i mean...:D

    I call BS until I see an actual picture.

    And I bet they come down to around the $1500 mark.

    I've never fired a bullpup in 7.62 Nato.

    How bad is the muzzle that close to your face?

    Probably bad enough to singe your beard into a reverse goatee.

    Ok Everallm I believe it now. Kel-Tec has done some changes to it since the prototype and I can spot some of them on the second one that you linked.

    Well well, it's finally out. :)

    I'll bet the muzzle blast from that 18" barrel close to your face would be considerable. I'd prefer the 24" Sporter barreled one myself.

    So, by "standard FAL" magaziness, do they mean metric or inch?

    Hopefully metric.

    Hey the one on gunsamerica can be *purchased* for $2K.

    Unlike the one on gunbroker, which will only go up and up until the auction ends.

    I found the ejection method unique. Is there any other rifle that does this?

    Note the modification that KT made to the lower reciever in the last photo...they got rid of the handy-dandy little thumbhole (its a comfortable way to grip the little pups). They must have had problems with breakage in this area. Think that KT waited too long (formerly wanted the target model), I have recently decided that I want more bang 4 the buck, and therefore have bout decided on the Desert Tactical SRS in .338 Lapua. You have to admit it's got alot of bang, if I can only afford to shoot it. :uhoh:

    Just thought about something, it better be reliable...it would be hell to clear a jam or pretty much any failure. :D

    I can't even find the SU-16s anywhere in stock(I get the "good luck finding 'em" response to my inquiries) so it will be some time before I ever see one of these.

    Wonder if it suppresses well as there would be no over gas pressure to hit you in the face. But cycling might be an issue.
