It needs to be done.
We have a "C" and an "S" RDB but the first RDB is still the "RDB".
Confusing, no, unless your writing about them.
I propose the first RDB be designated the "T" for Tactical, for differentiation from the other incarnations.
Any agreement on this?

I think:
RDB-17
Or RDB standard.
I had the factory install a 20 inch barrel and those cool M-43 folding sights. So it's now RDB-20/M-43?
Nah, RDB-20 is what I prefer..

Apparently you've been heard. It's listed on their website as the RDB 17".

I don't want it until they have an M43.

I don't understand the M-43. It looks like the prototype mule for the RDB.
Really, wood grips? When has that ever been a KT thing?
I have no doubt it probably runs better than the RDB.
But could be un-fuglied a lot.

It's all about being a history and sci-fi fan for me. It has a retro look that just rings with me. I can picture it being used in one of those old Buck Rogers serials. I'm a nerd about those kinds of things.

The M-43 has the taste of the early post-WWII experimental intermediate cartridge weapons that the US torpedoed with the .308 M14. It's a chance to get something similar to some really interesting designs that suffered pre-mature deaths in the 40's/50's like the Brit EM-2. You can get any number of 'normal' looking plastic rifles but where else can you find a steampunk pressed steel and wood oddball? I'll buy one in a heartbeat.
