Kel tec. Is it worth the money?


#1

Anyone like the Kel- tech folding AR in 223? Have considered getting the 9mm rifle but can’t decide between the two.


#2

I have almost bought the kel-tec SU-16 I think that the only reason that I haven’t and most likely won’t is because I attempt to be logical with 223/556 rifles. If I really needed to use a rifle for a bad situation and the option was a su-16 or a run of the mill ar15, I always choose the ar15. Don’t get me wrong I think that it is a awesome idea, and I have never heard a bad review. They are extremely light rifles as well.

I had one of the first Kel tec sub 2000 9mm’s. It was fun when it worked! Trigger was awful, jammed a good bit with the 33 round glock mags, and the 1st time I let my asshole brother try it, the trigger broke in half! I sent it back, they hauled ass& got it back to me quick. Still jammed a lot. You get what you pay for imho. Junk! Ok for the range, i would not trust my life to the brand!

Thank you for that. I like yourself have my good old Ruger sr15. That’s my battle rifle. In a pinch I can toss someone a mag and they all fit and parts are available all over. I was just thinking about one for back packing.

I’ve heard of the early models being junk. The new ones are supposed to be better. I want one just for back packing where weight is more an issue. I have a Ruger SR15 for when it gets real. Thanks

Well hell Rich if you already have a sr15, nice rifle by the by, and you have the money sure I think you should get one. It’s a perfect backpack rifle!

Bought a Kel-Tec PMR-30 last December as an xmas present to myself… It was horribly unreliable and down right dangerous. So I sold it earlier this year and bought two Mosins instead.

I am a sample set of one but I wasn’t a fan of the fit and finish of it or the Sub 2k that I ran. Both felt cheaply made (the polymer was pretty thin). Again, a sample set of one here.

Thanks. I guess your not the only one that has said that.
