Read a little about them and they actually look like a handsome bullpup, as opposed to some others I've seen. The other attractive feature is that the spent cartridges are ejected through a forward chute, brilliant engineering on their part. However, they look ridiculous when firing 7.62 NATO. Has anyone here ever fired one and are they even legal in Cali?

I hope they come out with a 5.56x45mm edition eventually, it just makes sense.

Very unsual, and very cool. It's weird seeing the the spent cartridges dribble out of the front of the weapon.

This video shows a cutaway RFB in action:

At first the "dribbling empties" concept bothered me too, until I found out that if it was fired constantly, whilst aimed at an upwards angle, that, after a while, the shells would dribble out, and not get backed-up and jammed.

I don't think I'll be getting one any time soon, esp in that caliber, it just doesn't seem like the wisest choice. But maybe with a longer barrel and a good bipod. Mainly wanted to hear from someone who owns one and what their thoughts are on it.

There are one or two for sale here, look in the want to sell ads and ask the owners.

I guess my search (via calguns search engine) on Firefox blows because it's not bringing up any ads :-/

If you want a 5.56 Bullpup get an FN FS2000. I would not trust any Kel Tec
firearm with a rifle round.
