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.

"I bought this in June so I've only played two Ops with this gun so I'll write another review in the future. I've been running .28s but I'm planning on switching to .32 or .36 for a little bit more accuracy. You could definitely use this for a DMR by running .4's. This thing shoots super hot straight out the box so you're gonna wanna break that spring in. I was getting around 350fps on .28s when the fields limit is 340 for .28s

Pros:
- The thing beams people
- Most of the weight is in the rear so its very maneuverable and comfortable to hold
- Uses 5.56 mags
- Gets about 25 RPS with a 11.1 LiPo

Cons:
- Battery space SUCKS A**. I recommend getting two 1100Mah batteries b/c it also eats through batteries like crazy
- Hop up is in the mag well which is no bueno for quick adjustments
- Not a lot of space to work with for upgrades

Other notes: Its really really good and I 100000% would recommend this to anyone looking to upgrade their starter gun.

"The Good:
- Great performance out of the box. I was shooting close to what is advertised for FPS. Some people have had problems with compression, but I imagine this was fixed during recent production runs (?).
- Quick change spring feature and deans connector is nice.
- Solid externals. The replica is easy to disassemble (if not a little difficult to reassemble) and is very solid. My charging handle broke after minor use (no HK slaps), but it’s not the end of the world. The important stuff is solid.
- Trigger is great. This replica eliminates a lot of the problems with airsoft bullpups, this probably being the most important.
- Very balanced and maneuverable (as with most bullpups). I play on a woods field with lots of town buildings and small hard cover… having a short profile with a standard length barrel can work to your advantage. The level of balance also means that’s it’s very easy to operate using only one hand (holding an angle with your right hand while doing something else with your left hand, etc.)

The Bad:
- The hop up is challenging to adjust. The redeeming factor here is that the hop doesn’t seem to creep too much, so once you get it set, you’re good.
- Hop up is proprietary and the nub (plastic) is built in so you are not able to use an aftermarket nub.
- Small battery compartment. Buy a couple of 1000mah stick types and you’ll be fine. It is also possible to modify the cavity to fit a larger battery.
- I wish it had QD sling mounts, but definitely not a deal breaker. The mount positions are well placed and provide a lot of options.
- Sometimes the mag gets in the way. I’ve found this to be especially difficult when lying in a low prone position and trying not to “chicken wing” my elbow when peaking out from cover… you almost have to.
- I sometimes accidentally switch my fire selector to semi when it’s in the auto position, especially when firing off-hand. The real steel is only semi, so it does not seem to be designed to have an auto position and that is evident on this replica.

My suggestions if you buy this:
- Purchase a “tall” sight or use a riser - much more comfortable than a low profile sight.
- Definitely purchase an extra battery.
- Upgrade your barrel and bucking. As with anything, this will make a huge difference and is easy to do.
- Run some sort of foregrip. Because the replica is short, it’s a little more difficult to aim accurately from the hip and having extra control helps.
- Prepare yourself for lots of attention. This thing is a looker, and lots of people want to check it out :)

Bottom line:
If you want something that’s going to be easy to upgrade down the line, this probably isn’t it. The good thing is that the performance/quality out of the box is excellent for the price. I found it very easy to adapt to the ergonomics and would highly recommend this if you want something to use your M4 mags with and want something a little different.

"Its a great gun. low profile bullpup. its so much easier to handle with the most of the weight in the back of the gun instead of forward heavy like many other guns. shoots well stock. worst part is the battery space. battery compartment is in the hand guard. You need a slim battery and not too long. I got a 7.4v 3000mah stick but very snug and I did a little modification to help appease battery space with a Dremel. a butterfly battery will probably fit well and it shares a bit of the battery space with the barrel making using say brick type not useable. overall great gun if you like optics instead of iron sights as this has no iron sights. adjusting the hopup is a pain as you have to take the mag out everytime you adjust. But so far my favorite gun I own
