Kel Tec SU 16c .223 Carbine Review With Accessories




What do you think about this video?

Steve Bertelli: You can build an AR for around 700$ how is this cheaper? 

ldgrey1963: Hopefully the weapon was not charged, a loaded magazine does not equal a loaded weapon. He could use frangiable ammo for home defense. So you safety NUTS need to take it easy. Remember constructive comments train people, not bashing them with your knowledge of how things should be done. As for the individual making this video, thanks for the video, but for safety's sake leave out the ammo when doing the further reviews.

with33: @THarrisson it came with 2 extra mags the problem is the state i live in has high gun taxes i cant just order it off a website i have to have a gunshop order it he adds some onto that then the taxes lol but it was worth evry cent i paid i love it fianlly got it out long enough toget a good test 1000 rounds and it worked perfect

nessa6565: i dont understand how AR people hate on this gun so much. It's the best of both world, superior AK gas system with proven AR bolt system. Plus it's lighter than an AR. Like another user said, it's a hybrid. I guess that just fanboy mentality. Hate anything that different.

nick potella: @nessa6565 it kicks noticeably more than an AR because of its action and weight. that and its a budget gun its got a cheap barrel non chromelined, thin, 1:9 twist and its piston system isn't like an AK either. overall tho good gun for the money but not comparable to an AR in most categories. the SU-16's are so cheap now i think i saw one for $420 a while ago good deal for a .223 cheaper than a mini-14 as well. however if you look around for parts you can build a decent AR for $600-700.

prolfinator: @with33 mabey for the 500 retail price 800 seams allitle steep

zenanskig: @samthecat07 there is a take down video on here of the Kel-TEc PLR-16 just search " Kel-Tec PLR 16 Field Strip "

GunRunna47: dam 600 + i paid 300 even for mine i'd prob sell it here in Tx i dont know??? have u striped and cleaned the gun before? if so please do a video as mine didnt come with a manuel

adamk818: Did you really make a video in your house with a loaded gun?...really? 223 is NOT a home defense round, what is wrong with you? How many walls do you want to shoot through?

Dust8713: Hey good vid man, but your a little inaccurate on certain specs; most importantly ammo size. The SU-16c is chambered for the 5.56 NATO round. It will obviously shoot the .223 sporting round. However, you lose accuracy, because of the 5.56 has longer lead in than the .223 a.k.a. a longer distance the .223 travels before it reaches the rifling (appx: .08"). Just thought I'd give ya a heads up.

gcollin75: @gatewood1977 Hey buzzkillington, it was sarcasm.

freeze427: How do you like it after you have had it for a while? Any problems, jams, etc?

Fujisuka: Do what you can with what you have, but that rifle is a piece of crap. Better than nothing, but it's still a piece crap. Not battle proven at all, and it jams.

theaveragejoker: @mrsentry08 you're*

Pete Zaitcev: It's all relative of course. Compared to 22LR, 5.56 is not budget, but then think of people shooting Grendel. I found that Brown Bear works very well in my SU-16CA, and it costs $7 for a box of 20.

chanderson1: That gun looks pretty nice! How is the reliability with that gun? Nice video man!

blaziankhmer: @with33 i bought a stag arm for 819 at my gun shop, i think i rather pay 20 bucks more for an AR

Slade229: @gconal There's hollow point 55 grain .223 rounds you know. I never use FMJs for home defense, I just use hollow points.

MrMetalcore666: That gun is chambered to shoot a 5.56, but can shoot the .223, it will be a lot more accurate if you use a 5.56

theaveragejoker: @bigdawgs2k boxotruth..com

LibertyNOTPoverty: Great gun man, keep it up. Kel Tec made an AR-15 accessory acceptable gun with an AK-47 gas system( Long Stroke Gas Piston, not direct impingement). The SU-16c is what Im saving my pennies for now. Kel Tec offers a pistol grip ar-15 style stock for the SU line and it looks bitchin! Check out NUTNFANCY's review on the SU-16, he is by far the most in depth and well informed tabletop reviewer on Youtube

piegazer: whats the length with the stock folded?

zenanskig: thanks

samthecat07: Dude, this is one enjoyable video and I love the optic system. These carbines are harder to find than a cabbage patch doll was in the 80's and no wonder, they are super light, good looking, very accurate and durable with a lifetime warranty. I will NEVER sell or trade mine. All I added was a YHM suppressor for about $25. And don't forget; the most important thing about the shooting sports is JOIN THE NRA TODAY and keep your membership UP TO DATE!! We're in a war here and must increase the troops

zenanskig: @with33 extremely good .223 rifle

BabyBear556x45: You could have saved about 100 buck more to get a DPMS Oracle Very Cheap and strong AR-15

bigphil562: does it take ar-15 mags

zenanskig: buy one ! it's an awesome carbine

joedeven: what kind of sight, laser, and flashlight are they?

zenanskig: hard to find gun..so they amp up the price i paid like 600

THarrisson: @with33 btw 800 I would say is TOO much, unless its coming with optics, extra mags, or some sort of accessories, I mean the Msrp is set at 700, but you can shop online and find most places are offering it around 600

jakedaredneck: Great review debating on picking one of these up, that or Ruger super blackhawk (I know they aren't in the same categories)

gconol: Someone commented that the .223 bullet breaks apart on the dry wall ?? What kind of dry wall is that ? If the 9mm bullet goes through dry wall easily at 900 ft/sec, then the .223 at 3000 ft/sec will go through just about anything in the house. That round is not an ideal home defense round, it'll go through a person like nothing and most likely injuring your neighbors too.

mrsentry08: stupid the su 16c has a thicker barrel than the su 16a, and b to handle 5.56x45 rounds not JUST. 223. And that's why its su 16c not cuz PEOPLE SAID it means Charlie its the 3rd model. Wow your not smart!

zenanskig: @bigphil562 Yes it does.

TexasTough: nice, i need one of these

zenanskig: yea i know the ammo ain't cheap the rifle is good though well priced for the features you get.

with33: i saw one at this gun shop by my house was selling for 800 didnt have the cash to buy went back a month later and it was gone is it a good gun?

rbelena: Any chance you can do a field strip and cleaning video on this 16C. I just got mine yesterday partly based on your very good video. Thanks....

ButtPoopWiggle: Hey you guys, check out Nutnfancy's review of this gun. Nice video man. Great footage of the gun's stock, fore-end, etc. Don't forget, this gun is actually more closely related to the AK-47 in that it is a piston design rather than direct impingement. The bolt however is an m-16/ar-15 design. It's like a hybrid, but it operates more like an AK, although it does fire the .223... Either way, I want that exact gun. The charlie model.

terry walters: dude you are a nob! showing a weapon which is loaded a weapon is safe only when unloaded your the type of person who would shoot one's self by acident!

samthecat07: TO: zenanskig, Thanks for the info...that'll work!!! NRA Endowment Member

BOHEMIANHUNTINGCLUB: thats an awesome looking rifle!! diffently on my list to get!! 5/5

crimsonpride48: The "C" will fire 5.56 or .223 for whom it may concern. SEMPER FI

mifslim: Dust18: actually you don't loose accuracy at all. Each gun reacts diffrently to each ammo. Some will like 5.56 GI issued ammo and some will hate it. Mines work great with both and I can't tell the diffrence in accuracy. Some will group better then others so ammo selection is more important then 5.56 vs .223.

kustom56merc: @with33 I know what you mean. I paid a bit over $500 online, and $85 plus tax when it got here to LA.

starkidd813: Ive got the su-16a but I have the pistol grip stock, and compact forend. Personally on mine man I think the bi- pod was kinda flimsy.

LMSTactical: Great video and review!! What camera system are you using to record these? They come out great!!! Thanks for the detailed review on an awesome weapon.

with33: well thanks to ur vids i bought one and i took it out to the range yeserday spent 200 dollers on ammo and anouther 700 for the gun but this gun is awsome jammed twice out of 1 thousand roudns witch is very good for what it is i think i found my new backup weapon to my ak or my m4 i will defently take this thing cmping with me next week might even try to hunt with it

J0Gu7: Cabela's has bushmaster AR-15's for $650
