Two questions:

One: I picked up a new in box B model SU16. It has the 16" pencil barrel with the bump in it to engage the stock when folded. I have heard that the new Bravo models have the regular thickness barrel, but the KelTec web page shows the Pencil barrel with a bump (they refer to it as "Hybrid". Are all Bravo models still Hybrid/

Two: the current catalog says all Kel Tecs are 1/7 twist now. I know the other two Kel tecs I had in 2006 and 2011 had 1/9. When did they switch? My favorite 5.56 load is MK262 MOD1 77 grain SMK OTM. I use Magtech or IMI Razor core stuff. It seriously kicks butt with about 850 ft energy still at 200 yards. Because of bullet design, it still causes traumatic injury from fragmentaion, even at 360 yards.

Congrats! I have a B model myself (love it) and mine has the hybrid barrel with the "bump." As far as I know and from what I've read...all the B models have the same hybrid barrel.

The 2nd question I can't answer, I have no info on the twist rates. I do know my B model is accurate as heck with any ammo I've tried.
