We wrote about the Kel-Tec KSG back in April and our view of the bullpup design still hasn’t changed about enjoying the bullpup design and concept, the idea of having a full length rifle in a small package without the loss of accuracy and range of a short barreled rifle.

The rifle has a different ejection system than any rifle I ever seen and is patented by Kel-tec as a forward ejection system. The spent shells are ejected through a tube over the barrel of the weapon and slowly push each round out using the round after or if the weapons barrel is tilted down they can just fall out. One of the major advantages to this system is when firing next to someone you are not shooting hot brass towards them.

The weapon system is fully ambidextrous.

The barrel is threaded to allow for flash suppressor or sound suppressor.

The weapon and be field stripped much like the AR-15 platform by using a live round to push out the 3 pins that holds this weapon together.
