I went into my old job today to get my last paycheck and to order one of these, well I had a good customer order one back in Jan and it was the only one that the store had saw. Well he was in today wanting to put it on consignment, he was only asking $400 and I bought it right there after a quick trip to the bank.

Can't wait to shoot it,he only put 50 rounds through it so it's just like new.

Who has a link to that thread?

Jesus Christ you dumb fucks, it was bad ammo that caused the Kaboom. KelTec STILL replaced the gun though it was deemed the ammo's fault, AND they changed the design of the carrier as to help prevent it from the catastrophic ejection that happened in TBS's case, and STILL got him a new gun back to him in less than a fucking week. And now you fucktards are bad mouthing them?

There are at least 2, if not 3 AR KB! threads running around where the various gun/ammo manufacturers are dicking around and not stepping up to the plate. KelTec did even though they were not at fault. You cannot ask for more than that from a company.

You got a "Better than new" deal on that.

I wish I would have been there....

Yup.

Like I've stated before, the 223/5.56 round should not be reloaded or your weapon may

IIRC it was a round of regular WWB that did it. There was a thread in the AK forum of another round of wwb bursting in an AK.

It's a FN 5.7 that got a load of steroids!
Link Posted: 2/23/2006 12:04:17 PM EDT
Ya, it was factory loaded WWB.

KT did a full analysis of the gun, concluded it was 100% ammo related. Most gun companies would then tell you "thanks for playing. Try calling Winchester"

KT sent him a BRAND NEW pistol, complete with ALL the upgrades that are available, even though TBS didnt have them on his original pistol.

On top of that, due to his case, they re-designed the pistol to make it safer.

It's because of that story that my next gun will be a Kel Tec SUB 2000

Wow.....I didn't know they went that far above the call of customer service like that.

I'm putting a PLR-16 on the top of my "to buy" list.

Here's a video of it in action with and without the muzzle brake with various magazine sizes:

Amazing how well that brake works in cutting down the muzzle jump.....gets rid of most of the fireball though

I'm sorry...

looks like a helluva lot of fun, and low recoil to boot

TBS said it was loud... i bet inside like that with bare concrete walls it was DEAFENING
Link Posted: 2/23/2006 12:27:18 PM EDT
The guy I bought it from said it was loud, that was one of the reasons he was selling it.

Wear eyes and ears (should go without saying anyway)

Plugs under muffs is the only way to fly.

Watch all the "WTF" looks at the range and smile!
