Very nice.


I want one of those. Although I will probably go with a RDB because I am quite firmly vested in 5.56, to some extent because of wanting to shoot everything suppressed.

Very nice.....


I know some of the guys who work at Kel-Tec. Good people and they have some guys running their stuff hard to suss it out and make improvements.

Considering the cost of a new, or even an old AUG, I'd be more interested in the RDB. Since I have an AUG, I was super interested in a .308 bullpup, that takes metric FAL mags. It's ideal for MA.

I might still pick up an X95... maybe. But I've very happy with this rifle so whenever they come out with the .308 Tavor, it's not something I'd do at this point.

The trigger is great for a bullpup, and I'm sure I can wring more accuracy out of this rifle, but as far as the current setup, it's mint.

A friend of mine bought a Tavor, we took it to the outdoor range in the Ocala National Forest to break it in.

Love the weight and feel of the Tavor, the only thing I notice is you need to absolutely love snorting gasses after every shot.

With the ejection port right under your nose a full mag will clog you right up. I'd suggest wearing a surgical mask or some kind of face cover unless that stuff smells like victory to you.

Thats what I'd like to know abut the RFB, the bottom ejector does it eliminate the face full of blow back/ejection gasses because that would be a major plus.

I felt like I needed a shower and the netti pot after shooting the Tavor.

I was definitely not gassed after one or any number of rounds. The spent cases just slowly march out of the front of the rifle. Not throwing brass all over the place is a nice plus as well.

Good to know. If it was like that, imagine shooting it with a suppressor attached.

I am torn between an Aug and a RDB.

That's a pretty damn good group for offhand at 100 yards!

Its been several years ago but I enjoyed shooting the RFB.
What amazed me was how fast I could get successive shots on target.
The recoil was surprisingly light and the muzzle rise was negligible.

That's not pretty damn good.

That's awesome.

I'm biased toward the AUG, but the ejection of the RDB has merits. Also, cost.

Compared to other .308 rifles I have, it's OK. I'm satisfied for the day.

I can probably do a little better with this setup, maybe. Once I get more used to it.

It does look like there is great accuracy potential. That was slooow fire, and not holding the rifle up the whole time. It's just about the same as holding up the M14 or Garand for any amount of time. Too long and you'll be wobbling all over the place, too hasty and you're off.

I do, and it’s gassy as hell....

But it’s a damn compact package with full carbine velocity.

I’m interested in the RFB as well but internet lore has Keltec pistols with a limited lifespsan (5k IIRC) so I’ve been a little hesitant. Is there any accurate lifespan for the RFB? Of course, that would not include normal maintenance issues.

Absolutely not true. It’s “internet lore” for a reason.

I’ve never seen any documentation from KT about a 5,000 round lifespan and would say their pistols and rifles, if maintained, would last as long as anything else out there.
