SHOT Show 17 – Kel-Tec

Wednesday, January 18th, 2017

It’s always a joy to visit the Kel-Tec booth, as they consistently have new products to check out every year. Granted, it will be a while before you’ll see them on the market, but it what it is. For this year, Kel-Tec has two new models of their RDB, and one new model of the KSG.



Forgive the image orientation, but it was necessary because the KSG–25 is long, 38″ long to be exact. The KSG-25 sports a 30.5″ barrel, with a standard capacity of 24+1 2.75″ shells, hence the name. It weighs a hefty 9.25 lbs. unloaded, and roughly 11.5 lbs. when loaded. This particular model will come complete with Magpul MBUS front and rear sights, and a Magpul RVG vertical grip, along with a heat shield to cover the extended barrel. Kel-Tec states the KSG–25 will see a limited release third quarter of this year, provided demand is high enough.

RDB Tactical


The RDB Tactical is a variation of the RDB, featuring a two position collapsible stock which provides shooters with 1.5″ of additional length, as well as an M-LOK forend designed specifically for the rifle. The barrel length is 16″, and the RDB Tactical can accept any standard AR-15 compatible magazines. This rifle was so new, Kel-Tec wasn’t able to produce marketing materials for it to bring to the show.

RDB Survival


The RDB Survival is a minimalist profile variant of the RDB designed for field carry. Like the Tactical, it features a 16″ barrel, although this one is pencil profile to keep the weight down. The Survival model has an overall length of 26.1″, with a weight of 5 lbs., comes with integrated iron sites, and can accept any standard AR magazines. The Survival also features the same two positions stock as the tactical model, providing an additional 1.5″ of stock length for the shooter, which is also what lets the Survival skirt the minimal legal length.

SHOT Show – Kel-Tec

Wednesday, January 20th, 2016


For SHOT, Kel-Tec revealed a new variation of the KSG shotgun. Dubbed the KSG-NR, this new shotgun features a reduced capacity of five 2 3/4″ shells in each tube plus one in the chamber, for a total capacity of 11, compared to the original KSG’s 15. You may be wondering what you get for this reduced capacity. Well, as the image above indicates, the railed forend has been replaced by a proprietary, integrated vertical grip / weapon light which has an output of 420 lumens, and is powered by CR123 batteries. The NR features the same 18.5″ barrel and 26.1″ overall length as the original KSG, in order to keep it legal; Kel-Tec was quick to mention the capability to take advantage of the reduced profile by shortening the barrel and turning it into an SBS, with a tax stamp, of course.

Kel-Tec reps at the booth said that the KSG-NR is available now.
