The Modern Survival Rifle. The Kel-Tec SU-16C has many unique advantages that set it apart from other rifles. It is a reliable, compact, handy design that can be easily stowed away in a vehicle for emergencies, offering lots of firepower while taking up minimal space.

At first glance, it would appear to be just another AR-15 style rifle, but a closer examination reveals many features not found on other weapons. Perhaps the most practical of these is a fold-and-stow stock design that allows the rifle to be easily transported inside a backpack.

Folding is accomplished by removing the stock's cross pin and then swinging the buttstock underneath the action. In this position, the SU-16C is still capable of firing and distinguishes it from the other Kel-Tec SU-16 series rifles. When folded, the overall length is only 26.4 inches and weighs in at just under 4.7- pounds.

At the heart of the design is a long- stroke piston operation system. In other words, it uses a piston to actuate the bolt much like an AK-47. Similarly, the operating handle reciprocates with the bolt when firing and also provides a built- in forward assist to aid in the chambering of sticky cartridges. The bolt head is the Stoner/Colt AR-15 type, and locks open when the magazine is empty.

The Kel-Tec SU-16C has a crossbolt safety. Disassembly for cleaning is quick and uncomplicated. To prevent brass from flying up in your face, the operating handle also serves as a shell deflector.

Without the need for tools, the forearm swings down, opens up and then deploys into a bipod, which provides a good field rest for improved accuracy. The magazine release works just like an AR-15, and is push button activated from the right hand side.

The stock is capable of storing two extra magazines, of which two ten round, flush fit are included. Luckily, the rifle is completely compatible with AR-15 magazines, which are inexpensive and plentiful on the market.

A 16.0" chrome lined bore and chamber provide excellent corrosion resistance while also enhancing feeding and reliability. The medium weight barrel is threaded to accept 1/2-28 TPI suppressors.

Even though one should not expect long range, match grade accuracy out of the Kel-Tec Su-16C, accuracy nevertheless is respectable. A shooter can easily maintain minute-of-hog at 100 yards. The 1:9" barrel twist excels at stabilizing 55- grain up to 69- grain bullets.

For iron sights, the Kel-Tec SU-16C has an adjustable rear aperture that is highly visible, while the front is a well protected fiber optic sight. The receiver has an integral Picatinny receiver rail for mounting optics.

Trigger pull is between five-to-seven pounds and free of excess creep or overtravel.
Except for the barrel and operating components, the SU-16C is entirely made up of high impact reinforced polymer.

All steel parts, such as the barrel and operating components wear a Parkerized finish. For repair or maintenance, the rifle is backed by a lifetime warranty.

Overall, the Kel-Tec SU-16C is an exceptionally lightweight, versatile, go anywhere rifle that would make a great weapon to take along for predators, small game or just plinking.
