I love my RDB, it's everything I've come to expect from Kel-Tec products, but unfortunately, that includes their pathological desire to include the worst possible aesthetic in terms of handguard.

HOWEVER! "Lucky Irishman Firearms" has designed a far superior handguard for the RDB, and I'd love to have one, but they're currently out of stock.

Do any of you know of any private fabricators/manufacturers who would/could produce such aftermarket Kel-Tec accessories?

If you have the money to get new handguards why didn't you use that to get a better rifle?
>> No. 107054 ID: 1519ac
1. That handguard is ugly
2. Sure, any decent machine shop could make that. You have the blueprints and a shitton of money right?

Just wait for it to be back in stock.

I bet carhart or jon deere or whatever the fuck fake ass Js the redneck wannabe set is into these days would outsell that gucci stuff. Do they have a jack daniels or some other "real man" branding available or does the black plastic tacticool stuff cover that market completely?

Because even including the price of the Lucky Irishman handguard, the RDB would be cheaper than any QUALITY™ AR on the market right now, and it's way better quality than any AR within the same price range. It's only more expensive than my PBEAR because I bought all the parts of that separately, from other OpChanners; another parts build doesn't even seem feasible at this point, with all the price-gouging and out-of-stock parts.

I thought it was cheap wtf they cost $1000? You could build an AR for like $500 or buy a Bushmaster for 6-7. I just got a Chinese AK with a 1000 rounds for half the price of this piece of shit. Just save a few hundred dollars more and get a Tavor. Stop giving the jews at Keltec your money and give it to the jews at IWI or Palmetto State.

Granted the wood is cracked,no muzzle brake, and the finish is coming off but still. After parts and tlc I'll still be under the cost of gun that will blow your cheek off.

Is it a MAK-90? Have you checked for slant cut receiver or hopefully no third pin hole?

My first big boy gun was a MAK 90 I got off a bartender when I was a little shy of 18. I don't regret transitioning away from all my AK's to AR's, but I kind of wish I'd held on to at least that one. It had a slant cut receiver, but I was extremely impatient at the time and was too dumb and poor from laziness at the time to put in the effort to fix it up. I don't know if Iron wood Designs is still making furniture for them, but there are more options these days.

Sorry you folks didn't grab yours in the early '90s when they were under $190?
Norinco MAK-90 Model of the Kalashnikov AK-47
The letters/numbers MAK-90 stand for Modified AK-1990. The MAK-90 is a Chinese factory built AK model exported to the USA from China from 1990 through 1994 by two Chinese export companies: Norinco and PolyTech. Following the import ban in 1989, the Chinese developed an AK which met the "sporting purposes" clause. (The earlier AKs were banned because of their "evil" features: pistol grips, folding stocks, threaded muzzles and bayonets.) The new model was basically an AK with a wood thumb-hole stock and no bayonet lug (although you do sometimes see MAK-90 receivers with under-folder holes drilled and filled). Around a million MAK-90s were exported to the USA in the early 90s. According to "JA," of AK47.net, more MAK-90 rifles were imported from China than any other model of semi automatic AK type rifle from any other country. MAK-90s were made to shoot 7.62x39 or .223 caliber ammunition. A very few were made to shoot 5.45 x 39 ammo. The retail price for a new MAK-90s was often less than $200. They often were sold with three 5-round magazines, an oil bottle, a cleaning kit and a sling. http://www.mouseguns.com/mak90web/mak90.htm

Went shooting with it every Saturday since buying it, and never cleaned it until the range trip when it fired the last three rounds in the mag full auto, somehow. After that, it would only fire if I manually chambered a round after each shot.
I disassembled it (and let me tell you, it's as simple as taking down an AR), sprayed some break free on it, let it drip-dry, applied a light coat of oil, and it fired like new again.

Something is seriously wrong with it. There's no good reason for it to ever go full auto aside from

File 152203278694.gif - (4.71MB , 480x360 , Just an ape shooting a Tommy gun, nothing to see h.gif )
Reminds me of range stories, such as one about people shooting a semi-auto Tommy Gun and suddenly it went full-auto after burning through a number of drums. The shooter had good presence of mind and kept hold of the out-of-control Thompson until all the ammo remaining in that 50-round drum was expended. Don't know if it was a mechanical malfunction or an ammo cook-off from a hot breech. When it went haywire, he yelled something along the lines of "Holy moley! My finger's off the trigger but this Devil machine is firing on its own!" Perhaps with responses like "Dude, you're in unlawful possession of an unlicensed machine-gun. The Feds'll send you up the river for thirty years!"

I've heard you can get the same effect with a milsurp SKS if it's not cleaned properly before use. Floating firing pin gets gummed up with Cosmoline and sticks, striking the primer as soon as the round is chambered and keeps going until the mag is empty.

And then there was the magazine article about doing a trigger job on an AK that neglected to mention that their method could make a slamfiring illegal machine gun.

The way I understand that is if you knowingly replicate a malfunction causing "machine gun" fire, it's illegal, but if it's a legit accident and you don't keep doing it, you're probably okay.
>> No. 107149 ID: 22ba7a
I've had a slamfire happen with S&B commercial ammo in my SKS, it was clean and the firing pin was perfectly free.

Thankfully it only fired one round that way as I hadn't finished topping it up, so my dogs weren't shot.
>> No. 107151 ID: df12a0
Well, I only happened to have three rounds left in the magazine, so I have no idea if it would've continued if there were more, or if it would've done a burst and stopped.

Yeah, it only happened once, and hasn't happened again since its last cleaning, so I should be good for a while.
