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've written another review of this rifle, and something I realized I forgot to mention was how awesome the charging handle soh ds when you rack it and hk slap it. Also the tan looks way better than the od green. My buddy bought the od green one, and it's more of a forest green. The tan one is beautiful. I wish I could attach an image. If you like something a little bit different than everybody else but also like great performance, this is for you.

"This is my favorite airsoft gun I own! Feels high end and sturdy. As an added bonus it weighs the same as its real steel counterpart so that's pretty cool. It's super accurate and consistent once you put in a better hopup, I was shooting squids occasionally with the stock hopup. I was out performing some bolt action snipers at my field with it. Once I bought one, my buddy liked I so much he went out and bought one for himself!😂 I would recommend this to anybody, whether you're a seasoned airsoft veteran or just getting into the sport!

"Bought the rdb17 and used it for one game. So far, out of the ~40 airsoft guns I've owned for the past 7 years, this gun is my favorite!
The gun fits sooo nicely in my arms, and the weight distribution is perfect. It's very satisfying to hold! Two things I noticed about this gun right away were: 1) It is much thinner than I expected, which I love! 2) This gun feels like one SOLID unit...I mean, there's no wobble whatsoever and the rifle feels very sturdy! The materials it is made of feel thick and I have absolute confidence it won't break fast.
The performance of this gun out of the box is excellent! I use .28g bbs with this gun and the trajectory really impressed me. The trigger has a satisfying click, and I absolutely love how they separated the trigger mechanism from the gearbox - an absolutely genius design! Selector switch has a satisfying and positive click. Both mags feed perfectly fine, had no issues there. One thing I realized is that the short mag (Ares 100rnd AMAG) has many advantages over the big mag because the short mag allows you to go prone without having your gun lift up!
For CQB, this rifle is also perfect once you swap the spring. The compact design plus long barrel makes this an excellent choice for CQB.
As mentioned by other reviewers, yes, the battery space is tight. I managed to fit a 1100mah 7.4v battery with no issues, and the performance with a 7.4v is actually not too bad! The major reason as to why I was hesitant to buy this gun is that the hopup unit is in the magwell. However, once I dialed it in, it held up perfectly fine the whole day, therefore don't be too worried about the hopup unit not being accessible, it's not as bad as it sounds and the pros of this gun outweighs the cons in my opinion. Currently, there are no replacement parts for this gun besides the trigger unit/electronics. But this gun is an ARES gun, and I've owned several ARES guns in the past and never had any of them break; ARES is a good brand and makes tank gearboxes and externals.
Literally the best airsoft bullpup AEG! I have been hunting for a new bullpup assault rifle and I think I found the one!
