We’re often asked, “Why doesn’t KELTEC make an AR-15?” Well, here’s your answer. The SU16F gives you a gas piston operated, 5.56 rifle with adjustable sights, a threaded 18.5″ barrel, pistol grip, our proprietary compact forend and 6-position stock assembly right out of the box.
- The SU16 can be configured to suit your needs, featuring iron sights and an integrated Picatinny-style rail on top of the receiver to mount your favorite optic.
- If you know anything about KelTec, you’ll know that we like to keep things light and simple. The SU16 is an excellent choice for your go-anywhere 5.56 rifle.
- All of the SU16 models are gas-piston operated which keeps fouling to a minimum where the magic happens. Thanks to the long travel of the bolt carrier, the SU16 series rifles shoot smooth, flat and reliably.
