Very pleased with the rifle, very surprised by the trigger.

This is my first bullpup, so I am not accustomed to the manual of arms. Not crazy about the safety but I'm sure I'll get used to it with some repitition. The only failures were caused by my own inexperience. Put about 100 rounds of remanufactured Freedom 5.56 through it using both P Mags and Lancer magazines.

Took a second to figure out which attachment point to use for single point sling.

Yeah, then there's the whole hot brass raining down on my forearm thing. Gotta do something about that! :D

25 yards on bench. I'm a big fan of these targets. Save some steps and ammo. When I'm not feelings as lazy I'll walk it out to 100 to confirm. The one on the right was obviously me.

I want to like mine although from the first time I pulled the trigger I thought it wasn't anywhere as good as the RFB. In any event - I'm a huge bullpup fan so have been waiting for this rifle since it was announced. Unfortunately my experience with it has been frustrating... Mine sucks.

No experience with the RFB. Mind explaining?

I don't know a ton about KelTec but think the RFB was their first bullpup offering chambered in 7.62NATO. Started out like the RDB in terms of availability and I picked-up one of the first out there (18"). I've since added the 24" version as well. The main difference I saw at the time was forward ejecting (RFB) vs. Downward ejecting (RDB) but had hoped the majority of the rifle would be close or the same. The RDB feels much "cheaper" whereas the RFB is very solid. The trigger on the RFB is amazing for a factory trigger with short take up, clean light break and short reset. I had hoped the RDB would be close to the same but isn't. Anyway - there's a number of other differences (charging handle fixed vs. hinged, etc.) but the biggest to me is the trigger.

Oh and I say mine sucks because of the fact it doesn't work reliably. I'm a victim of the extractor pin disappearing act, and despite installing a replacement, this manage to get occasional FTE problems. FTE's with this design are a PITA to resolve and put this gun at the bottom of reliable rifles for me with a price tag significantly higher than others I have that work perfectly every time.
