opinions on the Keltec SU-16B , or SU-16C?

Just curious ...what the rest of you think of these.
I'm thinking I want a 'backpack' gun that is remotely powerful / accurate
but very compact. At a minimum it must be a folder, or a bullpup to fit in a backpack.
Like a survival gun...or 'bail out bag' gun.
I really like the C model since it can be deployed more readily if you needed it for defensive purpose (you can shoot it without unfolding stock)

might also be nice to have a removable low powered optic on it as well, that weighs little/small on top. I would leave the iron sights in place, but I won't use a stupid cowitness or 'look under the scope rings' setup. Just easily removable JIC.

I love how it's nice and light 4.5lbs, and it seems to accomplish all criteria i had for it. Even is piston driven, which is nice.

I really wanted one but couldn't justify the price compared to an AR. I really like them though and if I could find a good deal on a used one (and had the money) I'd be all over it. Sounds like it fits the bill for what you are wanting (compact .223).

I had one and it was a good rifle for what it was. It was more accurate than I thought it would be. I sold it because I did'nt really have much use for it after I got my plr-16. They are coming out with a 22 version of the SU pretty soon.

good point about the ar, you can get one for about the same price and it would probably be pretty decent, just won't fold DAMMIT.
I like AR's , but it is good to see they went with the gas piston design on this thing.

It sounds like your mind is made up, but I think you're just dreaming about it, "maybe-next-check," style.

Give me a dollar.

Anyone ever buy bulk 12 gauge ammo? Looking to buy some of the low recoil stuff and didn't realize how expensive it is, like a $1+ a shell.

is this some attempt to derail my thread?
hey atleast I did yours on accident- talking about SBR's, when the thread is about SBR ammo.
You're just purposely trying to be douchebag!
