In the world of bullpup rifle configurations, a very common concern for some users is ambidexterity. How can one hold the rifle, and utilize it to its full potential while avoiding getting hot brass in the face every time a round is fired and extracted? Kel-Tec's entry into the bullpup world is a wonderfully innovative design, with a genuine answer to the question of how brass should eject on a bullpup. With a downward ejection design, it allows both left-handed and right-handed shooters a solution for that problem.

The EMG vision is to manufacture products the world has never seen before; products we would put our name on, and products that hit the spot! "EMG" (Evike Manufacturing Group) was spawned from the realization that if you want something done exactly the way you want it, you need to do it yourself, and we did just that.
We took our 16 years of knowledge as the market's lead retailer, our network of 300+ superior manufacturers, to work with inspiring top innovators in the firearms industry. That combined with the vision to invest into the Airsoft industry, an industry we believe in, EMG was born. (Write a review) "I got the tan model of the RDB, (which is actually more of a dull green-grey, it doesn't stand out at all) and I am very pleased with it. It performs well, has a good range and very consistent accuracy. However, it has a couple minor issues. First, the hop-up is hard to access, as it is in the magazine well. You can only turn the wheel with a little screwdriver, as you can't reach it with your fingers. The problem with it is that the sticker to show you which way to turn it is backward! You must turn it toward the - for it to hop, and toward the for no hop. Aside from all this, (and a few very confusing moments) it is a wonderful gun, with amazing accuracy.
Mine came with: One 130 rd. AMAG, one 100 rd. AMAG (both ARES), and a screwdriver in the grip. No sights are included, even iron.
Overall, I would give it 9.5/10. Enjoy! "Excellent replica of the real steel rifle. There are several issues I have with this replica, all easily fixed:
1. Airseal between piston head and cylinder doesn't exist - replace o-ring
2. No ball bearings on either piston or spring guide - replace either/both of them
3. Stock barrel and hop rubber are trash - replace them
4. DON'T USE ANY NEODYMIUM MOTORS ON THIS! The firing mechanism in this gearbox uses a magnetic sensor, and the close proximity of the motor will cause the gun to malfunction when you shoot it if you use a neodymium motor "I'll start with the performance of the gun first, since that's what matters most in my opinion. This gun checks all the boxes for me: fps just below 400, decent accuracy, excellent trigger response, and a rate of fire that leaves nothing to be desired (with an 11.1 volt LiPo, of course). And I can verify that it's compatible with other M4 mags, too; I ordered a bunch of mid-caps from Amazon, and while they don't fit as cleanly as the two that come with the gun, they feed without a problem and stay where they should. I was worried that they would have problems, since they were on the cheaper side, but I was pleasantly surprised to see that this gun is quite flexible with magazine compatibility.
As almost everyone else has said: the hop-up isn't very easy to access, and is a bit inconvenient since you have to remove the magazine and use a flathead screwdriver (or similar long, thin tool) to make adjustments. That said, once you get it set, that complaint becomes a lot less prominent.
My only major complaint is the charging handle; the main body is made from cheap pig iron, and mine broke off less than 24 hours after the gun arrived. That said, it appears that the charging handle doesn't actually serve a purpose on this gun, so in the end, it's just a cosmetic/aesthetic flaw that has no effect on the gun's functionality.
Other than that, the construction feels sturdy and solid. The polymer hand guard/under rail segment has occasionally given me some trouble with detaching and re-attaching when replacing the battery, but once in place, it stays put and feels like it could take some abuse (especially considering that it's polymer).
