Kel-Tec RFB18 7.62 NATO / .308 Win Semi-Auto Carbine 18″ Barrel 20+1 Capacity – KELTEC RFB18
RFB stands for Rifle Forward-ejecting Bullpup. Why forward-ejecting? Because it allows the RFB to be the first truly ambidextrous 7.62 NATO Bullpup ever developed. The innovative dual-extractor system maintains control of the case from the moment it leaves the magazine and upon firing, pulls the fired case from the chamber and lifts them to push them into an ejection chute above the barrel, where they exit. The Bullpup configuration and tilting-block mechanism allow the 18″ carbine to be only 26.1″ long overall.
The RFB is also the safest Bullpup ever developed because the breech is separated from your face by two layers of 1.6mm steel. In the highly unlikely event of a case rupture, gas expansion is directed downwards through the magazine well to protect your head and face.
The RFB is a short-stroke gas piston operated Semi-auto that accepts standard metric FAL type magazines that do not need to be tilted in. All controls are fully ambidextrous; the reciprocating operating handle can be switched to either side. The trigger mechanism is second to no other bullpup ever built and better than nearly all commercial semi-auto rifles. No open sights are provided, allowing you to select from the very best new optics and sight systems available.
