Talked to Keltec today. They say they're "looking at" a slotted handguard for the RFB. Doesn't sound like we'll see that anytime soon.

Did find an aftermarket MLOK lower handguard replacement for the RDB. Looks like it's available for order here. http://lifeindustries.net/kel-tek-rdb.html. Could be a heat issue given it's proximity to the gas system.

Video Range Report: Kel-Tec RFB with Match Ammo

Went out today after a thorough deep clean to adjust the gas settings on the RFB for some heavier Match Grade Ammo (interesting findings regarding gas settings for the hotter Hornady stuff). All 10rd groups are at 100yds fairly rapid with about 5-6 minutes in between groups.

168gr Federal Gold Medal Match SMK BTHP





168gr Hornady A-Max





178gr Hornady Superformance BTHP

Thanks for the range report Nuttz; great video work.

Grouping definitely seems better than with the lighter boolits! I haven't' shot anything other than mil-surp out of mine so far; not really even broken in yet. Gonna have to pick up some match in the heavier loads and see how mine shoots.

I was at the range today with the RFB Hunter and ran 20 rounds or so of the Malaysian. Originally had the 9" quad HG and was shooting off a bipod. Have now removed the quad, installed the pic rail at 6:00 and again, shooting off a bipod. Groups with the Malay ammo ran about 4 MOA. Need to try shooting from a rest and see if I can improve that.

Let us know how she does at Quantico.

I had opportunity to sight mine in finally today(kids were practicing with their deer rifles in back yard and had targets up already). Tough little thing to master with no forward weight. It did 3-4" with 80s winchester ball, and just over 1" with some nothing special 150sp reloads at 100 yards(ammo I had loaded for my Savage 99, which shot similar groups).

I put a Vortex 2-7x35 on it. Was using a chunk of oak 4x6 as a forward rest, no rear bag.

Video Range Report - Kel-Tec RFB 600 Yards

As promised, here is the RFB doin' it's business today at Quantico. Started at 300yds with the Hornady 168gr Amax I had left and it did great. Backed off to 600yds and tried out the Hornady 178gr Superformance BTHP. I am Happy!

Its refreshing to see the RFB bang steel at 600 with good ammo. All Ive ever put through it is ZQI or hirt.....neither of which is stellar at anything other than blasting.

Both Hornady rounds shoot with gas wide open, so I just backed it off to 30. I could have taken the gas knob clean off, but with my luck I would have lost it. The other videos show me shooting the Hornady with no gas knob after the FGMM settles at 25.
