  1. RDB Bullpup Rifle
    Hey everyone, first post here with my RDB! I really love this gun but it has plenty room for improvements. There's not a lot of aftermarket upgrades out there so I figured that surgery by dremeling and wrong colored paint job is the solution. Pardon my questionable gunsmithing work. Not much of...

    Hey, all I'm not much a forum poster, but I like to check in from time to time and read up on more than a few posts, but I'd figured i share about the project I'm working on. I'm the owner of a hydrographics company in East Texas, and a year and half ago i got ahold of an RDB 20. Recently I got...
  3. RDB Bullpup Rifle
    Trying to think of solutions to the accuracy issues reported with RDB rifles. Given that putting pressure on the handguard seems to be the biggest problem (especially with a bottom-attach bipod) I'm wondering if suspending the rifle from an over-bore bipod would be an improved way to support the...
  4. RDB Bullpup Rifle
    I picked up my new RDB last week, and haven't fired or disassembled it yet. However while familiarizing myself with it and it's operation I've noticed that given a slight bit of pressure the forend will audibly "click" forward or backwards about 1mm. I've made sure that all the bolts are tight...
  5. RDB Bullpup Rifle
    Notice the "ring" on the ejected shell? It was made by the bolt head. The area around the hole for the firing pin is raised like a volcano. I have reached out to KT on this but I haven't heard anything yet. I have never seen anything like this, the M4A1 bolt head is flat, so was the M16A2...
  6. RDB Bullpup Rifle
    KTOG's RDB forum has had fairly regular threads requesting help with a malfunctioning RDB. The typical scenario is someone with a new RDB who had a bad first range trip. After a very similar community assisted KTOG troubleshooting session, the problem is resolved. Often, it was nothing more...

    Got the shorter Survival foregrip for my RDB as I prefer everything ending neatly at the gas block, but if you wanted the long-and-skinny foregrip that has a forward sling swivel point I'm happy to mail it out, $50 to anywhere in the lower 48, S+H included. If you're further afield still happy...
  8. RDB Bullpup Rifle
    So I'm waiting on my RDB to be delivered. In the mean time I'm ordering some upgrades. The lucky Irishman rhino, flared mag well, etc. I came across a dust cover on thingiverse. It's the plans for it to 3D printed. Here's the link. https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4001233 It is free to...
  9. RDB Bullpup Rifle
    So I'm a bit new to the world of scopes as I mostly just been running red dots or irons, but want to get get into some longer range shooting once the weather cooperates. I've been eyeing the Burris RT-6 for a couple of weeks now and just wanted to see if anyone had any feedback on it or suggest...
  10. RDB Bullpup Rifle
    Hey guys, I'm working on an SBR conversion in 300 BLK for the RDB. I'm trying to decide how to manufacture the charging handle that I've designed, but I don't know what kind of temperatures the front end actually reaches. Does the front edge of the charging handle heat up much after a couple...
  11. RDB Bullpup Rifle
    I know there isnt any official grip plugs out there so I went ahead and made one. I have the link up on Thingiverse if any of you all have access to a 3d printer. The instructions are on its page as well if you need them. It uses the flexibility of the plastic to stay snug but it can still be...
  12. RDB Bullpup Rifle
    I'm looking to add a sling point to the rhino rail on my RDB and without thinking about it I just purchased one, and it doesn't fit mount point in the grip. It is the correct diameter, but the the gap between the beads that lock it an place and the head of the swivel is too small (or the frame...

    Considering how poorly RDB has done in the InRange TV mud test, have any businesses sprung up to design, manufacture, and sell dust covers? Ideally, it should open automatically, like on PK/PKM. I could also settle for a blow-out, disposable cover, as long as it does not interfere with the ejection.

    Then I can really use it for home defense without worrying about over penetration; I can shoot it at pistol range and ring steel at 25 yards. Maybe even USPSA PCC to have some extra fun with it. 9mm suits the 3 MOA accuracy of RDB anyways. Does Kel-Tec has a place where we can submit suggestions?
  15. RDB Bullpup Rifle
    I just ordered an RDB. It will be my first rifle, essentially, although i have an AR on the way as well (thanks Beto!). I made the purchase after viewing YT and posts on the RDB that seemed early in the run. As you probably know, early experiences and high round count reviews were very...
  16. RDB Bullpup Rifle
    I received my brand new RDB two weeks ago. I took it to the range and put about 60 rounds through it with no issues or gas adjustments. After returning home, I took it apart, cleaned and oiled it, and now it won’t feed. It bends and dents brass cases on the locking lugs and won’t chamber...
  17. RDB Bullpup Rifle
    Ive owned my RDB for a few months now and i am a big fan. It feels like no other gun to shoot, and as I get more used to it my appreciation has only grown. Recognizing that the RDB is a very reliable gun, i do wonder about the ejection port. Many modern rifles feature a dust cover, often spring...
  18. RDB Bullpup Rifle
    Hey all, I recently received my RDB raptor rail from Lucky Irishman and was hoping to attach it to my RDB-C. I had seen a pic of a "C" with the rail and thought it would be an easy install like a normal RDB. Turns out, things are just out of reach. Hoping I could get some suggestions...

  20. RDB Bullpup Rifle
    I am a newbie to the Kel-Tec family. Just bought a new RDB, cocked the gun and dry fired it without a snap cap and the magazine inserted. Afterward, I was able to only pull back the operating handle about half way back, unable to completely cock the gun. The operating handle can still move...
