SHOT Show 2014 – Kel-Tec

Wednesday, January 15th, 2014


Kel-Tec is releasing this bullpup rifle, the M43, next year. It’s a wood-and-metal variant of the brand new polymer RDB carbine, both chambered for 5.56. The M43’s design is intended to resemble 1940s firearms technology. It features an adjustable gas piston operation and full ambidextrous controls; brass ejects downward, behind the magazine. Unlike its polymer brother,the M43 features no rails and isn’t suppressor ready. Instead, it has folding iron sights to complement its wood handguard, pistol grip, and stock. Another small difference is the folding charging handle on the M43, compared to the fixed handle on the RDB.



Kel-Tec Shotgun Updated Overview

Monday, March 7th, 2011

The KSG (Kel-Tec Shotgun) pulled a lot of buzz during SHOT Show, due to its 14+1 shotshell capacity and [semi] unique bullpup design. It also happens to be on my personal list of must have firearms for this year. This video shows some updates done to the design since SHOT, some good, some bad. For example, fixing the trigger reset was a big win. Cutouts on the magazine tubes as an ammo indicator; good in theory, but a potentially harmful entryway for dust and debris. Still, the KSG won’t be released until later this year, so it’s entirely possible that the design can be further refined by then. Even so, I still hate waiting for the newest futuristic-looking scattergun to finally be in my hands. Where’s Doc Brown and the DeLorean when you need ’em?
