Kel-Tec Has the Coolest Gun at SHOT?: The RDB Survival Model and the KSG-25 | SHOT 2017

    In this SHOT coverage piece, James discusses two of Kel-Tec‘s newest guns.

    First, the RDB Survival Rifle – perhaps James’ favorite gun from SHOT this year – is a new and extremely compact, NON-NFA 5.56mm/.223 survival-style rifle, designed to be stowed away in a pack or small carrying case. It accepts AR15 magazines and has a bottom-ejecting design.

    As described by TFB’s own Ray I.: 

    “The new Kel-Tec RDB Survival isn’t much different than the Californiafied version RDB C. The main difference really is the shorter 16 inch thinner profile barrel and shorter handguard as well as flip-up front and rear iron sights. The overall length is also shorter at just 26.1″ long and it weights in at 5lbs unloaded. Why the non-pistol grip version for their new RDB Survival? Kel-Tec is marketing their new bullpup for people taking it into the woods, preppers, zombie slayers and the like. I’d imagine the more stream lined RDB C and Survival models without the pistol grip would be a bit easier to carry when hiking through the bush vs the original RDB bullpup.”

    Kel-Tec also displayed the KSG-25, a KSG pump shotgun that holds an ENTIRE BOX OF 12 gauge shells.
