mag can be inserted in Hunter when rifle is in any status.
But RDB 17, mag can only be inserted when rifle is charged (cocked).
Kel-Tec says “that’s the way they are designed.”
Is there a reason for this operational difference in design of these two RDB?

My thinking about it is, its done so a rifle cant be have a magazine and be in a state of rest with the safety off. Then , should a slam load occur, or an incompetent person rack the slide, the weapon is in a condition for a negligent discharge. They always say, "I didn't think it was loaded". The way to solve that problem is to not store it loaded. I suppose KT just made it a little harder to do that.
However, I have read how some brilliant people have discovered that forcing a mag in a few times fixes the problem.
YMMV on that.

I would just accept it as a training issue. Lock, load on a locked back bolt.
Ever seen those Israeli guard rigs? They have a loaded mag affixed to a dummy mag at right angles and cocking chamber flags. Not hard to get into action, and kept safe the majority of the time around the public.

I can understand there may be reasons for the operational design of the RDB17. My question is why is the RDB Hunter’s operational design different?
