The Kelt-Tec RFB 18 is a short-stroke gas piston operated semi-automatic rifle in 7.62 mm NATO. The RFB’s forward-ejection allows the it to be the first truly ambidextrous 7.62 NATO Bullpups. All controls are fully ambidextrous and the reciprocating operating handle can be switched to either side.
The RFB features a dual-extractor system and tilting-block bolt mechanism to allow the 18″ model to be only 26.1″ long while still maintaining reliability.
The RFB is among the safest Bullpups developed because the breech is separated from the shooter’s face by two layers of 1.6 mm steel and in the unlikely event of a case rupture, gas is directed downwards through the magazine well to protect the shooters head and face.
The barrel has a chrome-lined bore and chamber, threaded muzzle (5/8×24 TPI), and comes equipped with Keltec’s A2-style Flash Hider. A Mil-Spec Picatinny rail is attached rigidly to the barrel. It accepts standard metric FAL type magazines which “drop free” and do not need to be tilted in. One 20-round magazine is included.
