Sometimes inventive genius doesn’t happen overnight. More often than not it is a process of evolution and refinement. Kel-Tec’s new RFB (Rifle Forward ejection Bullpup) is a prime example of this. I first saw the rifle at the 2007 SHOT Show in Orlando, Florida. The bullpup rifle was unlike anything I had seen before.
Chambered for the powerful .308 round, the carbine features a polymer housing, fully adjustable trigger, adjustable stock, ambidextrous manual safeties and uses FAL magazines. But perhaps its most interesting attribute is that it does not have an ejection port. Rather than flinging its empty casings to the side of the shooter, empty cartridges are funneled into an ejection chute, above the barrel, and are gently pushed out of an opening towards the muzzle.
