Kel-Tec's Su-16C has a thicker barrel...which should print more accurate groups. Problem is the weapon can be fired from the folded position...rendering it illegal (in violation of min length). However, Kel-Tec's site says that SU-16 Alpha and Bravos can be retrofitted with Charlie folding stocks. So, perhaps the Charlie can be fitted with an Alpha stock. This would offer one an Su-16 with a thicker barrel in a stock configuration legal here in CA. I'll be calling Kel-Tec.

I think the "C" model also has a threaded barrel which is a no, no in California.

Threaded barrels are NOT, I repeat NOT, an evil feature. Read pc 12276.1

Don't think so much, Jack.

(1) A semiautomatic, centerfire rifle that has the capacity to accept a detachable magazine and any one of
the following:
(A) A pistol grip that protrudes conspicuously beneath the action of the weapon.
(B) A thumbhole stock.
(C) A folding or telescoping stock.
(D) A grenade launcher or flare launcher.
(E) A flash suppressor.
(F) A forward pistol grip.

Write on the blackboard 500 times that threaded barrels are perfectly legal on rifles in California.

Let us know what Kel-tec has to say. I have an A model but would be interested in a heavier barrel.

I already asked and they said no. BUT it can be done they just won't do it. Have a free stater buy one for you install the A/B stock then sell it to you. Last price qouted on the A/B stock was $140!
