I can definitely appreciate Keltec's interchangeable parts. I never did really like the fat, long handguard with a rail under it I'll never use.

Neat! I like that

Can certainly appreciate that over the standard one.

Hell, it almost starts to resemble the RFB.

That has turned the RDB into a very visually pleasing rifle.

If only they'd start selling the grip frame on its own so I can have a super lightweight bullpup with a pistol grip.

That looks great!

Now SBR it.

Why? The gains are outweighed by the restrictions and losses. You don't gain much, if anything, SBR'ing a bullpup in the way you might when you turn an AR or AK into a runt gun.

I DO like the looks of the shorter, narrower handguard, but is it long enough to really feel good using your support arm? I wish it had options for mounting a VFG.
But then, I wish Manticore, Midwest Ind, or someone would make an m-lok one that was visually pleasing (the only aftermarket one I've seen doesn't blend with the trigger-guard at all) and functional.

Sorry guys, I've been neglecting my own thread. Thanks for the compliments. As an update, they are now making the S handguard in black.

@eviljoe Personally, I am totally happy with how it feels. If you're accustomed to a different style, such as a straighter support arm, then it might feel wrong.

But- That's an interesting point about bullpups. They really preclude any alternate grip styles other than what they were designed for. It would be hard to hold a PS90 or AUG in a way other than it was designed to be held.

An exception would be the RDB, with the original, long handguard. So, there's a plus for even more versatility.

Yep.

Are these available for sale someplace?
Link Posted: 10/3/2018 4:07:38 PM EDT
I don't think they are advertised for sale anywhere. I contacted Keltec directly via their site and was given a number to call for ordering.
Link Posted: 10/3/2018 6:49:05 PM EDT
Price?
Link Posted: 10/3/2018 8:07:20 PM EDT
I paid $50 plus shipping.

Here's a slightly blurry photo of the black one:

That's because the angle & lighting make the waffle-grid harder to see

Looks more like the RFB now.

I wrapped my front handguard on my RFB in pebbled texture grip tape. I like it much better than the original slick texture....

I've seen several people stipple the waffle blocks.

It looks like the texture on the RDB plastic is more matte than on the RFB.

I like that, almost MP5-ish on the front handguard. Also, notice how much more difficult it looks to accidentally bump to toasty takedown pin (someone does need to make one with nylon tips, though)

We're not quite there yet, but it's a start;


Hmmmm....er, "pinnnnnnnnnng"

If you want to avoid the ping, I know there are a few options for tine-flash hiders, but I cannot recommend WHITE SOUND DEFENSE's FOSSA-556 flash-hider enough. NO flash, and no PIIIING. There's even some slight recoil and muzzle-rise mitigation (we're talking 15-20%).

Looks much better. If they got rid of the waffle patterns and screw holes everywhere it would be even more visually appealing.

I'd be interested in what the RDB-C handguard would look like. The -S seems too short.

I'd be curious myself. It looks like the distance to the front pin is the same on all versions. Eyeballing the length, the the C could extend out under or past the flash hider.

It would be nice if I could get my hands on a C handguard for a test fit.

Anyone know if the RDB-S buttstock will fit on the standard RDB?
