If it is, it's the retarded in-bred cousin that lives in hills... Think "Deliverance"[;)][:D]

It looks like a 'sporting rifle' and fires the 5.56 round from AR-15 magazines. It even has a built in weaver rail. Lots of 'gagety' features - the stock will hold a spare USGI 30 rounder, the forearms swing open to be a bi-pod, and the rifel will fold in half for easy storage (with the removal of a pin). Yet they forget to add sling swivels. I've hear reviews both good and bad about it. I'm reserving judgement until I have an opportunity to try one out. One of the local shops told me they expect them sometime this month.

I like the concept. Fold it in half, throw it in a duffle bag, stuff it behind the seat of your truck. But how is the execution of the concept? Will the rifle be reliable, accuate enough, etc., etc. Or will it be some Go-Go-Inspector-Gadget cool looking POS? Have to wait and see.

I looked at a .40 S&W breakdown carbine (or whatever the hell you would call it!) the other day at the range. The guy liked the way it shot and said it was fun, but I thought it was kinda flimsy feeling. It was fun to shoot, but he got the one that takes glock mags (apparently they make another version that takes S&W 59 mags) so his Hi cap mags are pretty pricey. Think for the price I would definately stick to an AR (or even a Mini14), but I could see where it has its "gadget" appeal.

A 16" barrel sure would improve its stowability. IMHO, KelTec is offering some of the most innovative firearm designs out there. Unfortunately, most of them are about $50 short of proper execution.
