My First Positive Impressions of the Kel-Tec SU-16C

Not intended as a substitute for an AR-15, the SU-16C is piston operated, like an AK-47 and uses a Johnson/Stoner breech locking system. It is a simple gun with few parts. Other than the receiver, barrel and operating parts, the rifle is made of high-impact reinforced polymer. The stock is not adjustable, however it folds under the rifle for compact storage. Unloaded, the SU-16C weighs only 4.7 pounds. Though it sounds like there isn’t much too it, this is not a flimsy gun. Just wait until you shoot it.
