New Kel-Tec RFB Accessories

Kel-Tec announced three new accessories for the RFB rifle.  The accessories are a short quad-rail, a front sight riser, a tactical operating handle and a muzzle brake.  The Kel-Tec RFB (Rifle, Forward-ejecting Bullpup) is a .308/7.62 NATO rifle available in target and carbine models.

RFB Short Quad Rail

Quad-rails are exceptionally popular on the AR15 platform guns, so it is not a great leap to think that rails for the RFB might be popular as well.  The quad rail for the RFB is a short system, measuring about three inches in length.  The rails run from the rear of the flash hider to just forward of the gas system adjustment.

The rails will accept any 1913/Picatinny mount accessories and is made from “…hard coat anodized 6061-T6 aluminum.”

MSRP will be about $45 and should be available for order next week on the Kel-Tec website.

RFB Riser

This riser is designed to be used with the normal RFB rail or with the new quad rail.  When used to mount a sight on the quad rail, it increases the sight radius by about five inches.

Due out next week, the spacer is expected to sell for $20, or for $60 as a kit that includes the above quad rail.

RFB Tactical Operating Handle

The Kel-Tec RFB “Tactical Operating Handle” is twice as long, and 20% wider than the original operating handle.  The idea is to allow for sure operation in a high-stress situation.  The price is $25.00 on Kel-Tec’s site.

RFB Muzzle Brake

The Kel-Tec muzzle brake for the RFB rifle replaces the flash hider that ships standard on the gun.  Kel-Tec claims the tripple baffle brake reduces recoil and muzzle rise by 50%.  The muzzle brake is made from 4140 steel and has a parkerized finish.  The muzzle brake kit comes with the brake plus a lock nut.

Kel-Tec advises that the original flash hider may be very difficult to remove and the use of a vise and a heat gun or torch may be needed.  Fortunately, Kel-Tec can install the RFB muzzle brake for you if you so desire.

The RFB muzzle brake sells for $48.50 on the Kel-Tec site.  To have Kel-Tec install the brake for you, the total cost for the parts, labor and return shipping is $85.00.
