Thread: Keltec Su-16C

    They “look” like a good deal and I had them on my list until I looked at the FAQ section on their web site. They only have a life expectancy of 6000 rounds (the web site actually says 6000 rounds or more which realistically means that it could go anywhere from 6000 to 10,000 rounds). That knocked them off of my list since I go out an average of twice a month and go thru an average of 200 rounds each trip. That would only last me about 2 year2. I decided to stick with my Mini-14, I’ll just put a new barrel on it when the time comes.

    For a low end option,the SU-16 would be pretty good.I have no experience with them,but I have not heard anything bad about them.For CQB options,you might also think about the PLR-16.It is technically a pistol,but it is .223.And they are fun to shoot.But I recommend getting the shroud for the barrel,as it will get hot.

    Oh,yeah,if you want an AR,you can get a lower receiver from your dealer,or order one and pick it up from your dealer and order a kit from one of several vendors and build it yourself..The one I normally use is Blackthorn products(www.akpartskits.com).They seem to have pretty good deals on kits and parts and accessories compared with everyone else.

    Yeah, I thought about building an AR, but it does not seem like I can do one right for 500 bucks. I'm of the opinion that if I am going to build an AR, I want to do it right and have a really great AR at the end. Not just a so so AR. My plight for going with the keltec was to have a reasonable .223 for at the range as more of a plinker on the low end affordable. I'm alright with the 6000 round pull out, although that seems to be more of a legal statement than anything else. I may just need to do a 6000 round part swap and retune. Although my mind is still not made up, I like the keltec and it seems to be reasonable for the low price. I'm not matching it up to an AR by any means, but just as a range plinker and occasional duty defender. It is by no means combat ready or as good as a good AR. That I'll will worry about when I'm more financially prone and have time to invest. Thanks everyone for the comments. If I get one this summer, I send a review and range results!!!

    You won't be sorry with the SU- C. And don't worry about round counts , if ya wear it out , send it in and KT will rebuild it for ya , free.
    What state are you in? There are several local KTOG shooter groups that hold regular/informal meets. If ya could make it to one I'm sure someone there would let ya try theirs out,that's how I tried out several KTs. These guys are pretty nice about letting others try out their guns,some are almost insistant :13: .
    I just looked back and saw where your from, yep there is a group planning a shoot Memorial Day weekend (Sat ? )

    Thanks for the mention of the KTOG meets. I actually was aware of the meet, its just a bit too far away for that day as it is going to be a busy one for me. However, my mind is firmly made up. I still want to get the gun into my hands and make sure it feels right. But, otherwise it seems like a good compromise for the situation and requirements I have. Thanks!!!!

  8. I have one and for what it is, it's a good gun IMHO.

    It's a nice cheap gun that I can keep in the truck to shoot coyotes and rabbits at the Ranch. I don't worry about "dinging" it up and if it gets stolen it's cheap enough that I can replace it easily.

    the SU-16C is definately on my list of rifles to own. That or maybe the SU-22 in .22lr, that would be a cheap to own cheap to shoot gun that looks like AR.:coolb:

    When I attended the 4 day tactical rifle course at Front Sight last December, the only person who made distinguished graduate was using a Kel-Tec. He made DG because he was a great shot but the Kel-Tec definitely didn't hold him back.

    Yeah..I've got a bunch of AR friends who are begging me to change to an ar15, but the things I've heard and seen on the keltec are great for the price. I've got pieces parts already that I've invested on for a future AR that will fit the keltec. And from what I've seen, the accuracy of the keltec is excellent given the price and make. I'm about 2 weeks out from a purchase, when I get her to the range after break in, I'll give my full personal report on the purchase and if I agree.
