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.

"Hey Evikers! - RDB17 Review - Got this back when it was pre-order, so July, I think. Ootb it's a nice gun. Heavy solid feel, good balance, seems very short compared to other guns in my collection. I'll echo what other reviewers mention the plastic hop up (and backwards sticker) and battery space are not great. Just use 1000 MaH 11.1 stick, they fit fine. So far there is no replacement hop unit. Mine was over 400 fps on 20s and easily hopped them. Using 32s now and no problem hopping them . There is a quick change spring behind the butt plate, easy to swap with a few tools. I pulled it apart to swap to a Action Army neo motor and a Lambda 6.01 barrel. Very accurate at 100ft, and still hits the paper at 200ft. The new motor increased rps from 18 to 24. There is a catch with the stronger magnets, it may interfere with the hall sensor on the sector gear if you use a sling with a metal clip on that side point. It took a week or two to figure that one out! The charging handle still works on mine and I've slapped it several times. I'll be trimming that spring just to make the slap not as hard. The four body pins hold it together. Knock them out and it comes apart easy. To really open it up, you'll need a hex bit and some time, there's like 15 screws! Like the PDR-C there are several proprietary parts - cylinder and head are one piece and offset down a hair, trigger, whole gearbox outer, selectors, etc. Generally, this one needs to stay stock or a mild build just to try not breaking proprietary things. There are some mods out there to increase space in the hand guard and even one to cut a new window in the side for the hop adjustment. Both of these involve trimming material on a working gun, so be careful, do your research.

"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
