No doubt due to Foghorn’s incessant evangelizing, Kel-Tec’s jumping on the .300 Blackout bandwagon. They’ll be adding the new flavor to their SU-16 rifles, both in the CA (fixed stock) and C (underfolding stock) varieties. They say the suppressor-ready rifle will be available by mid-year. But as you might expect, no one’s really buying that around here. . .
I was talking with Kel-Tec engineering wiz Toby Obermeit when Phil Hill, of Jay’s Guns in Pensacola strolled up to the K-T booth and said to a buddy, “let’s go look at all the guns we can’t get yet.” Toby grinned resignedly and told Phil about the new production facility Kel-Tec’s just added and how they’re training staff to pump out KSGs as we speak. But with all their wolf-crying in years past, few will count those chickens until they’re hatched and laying eggs on a daily basis.
Toby was nice enough to put us on the list for a T&E SU-16, though. We’re hoping he’ll have the stock to make good on that so we can put it through the squat and cough review process. In the mean time, we’re sure Kel-Tec will forgive us if we don’t hold our breath while we wait.
