I purchased my tan RFB from Homeland Guns at some point last year and it has been a safe queen for quite some time. I have wanted to shoot it but was apprehensive due to the hit or miss type of reviews you hear about the RFB platform in general. I have cleaned and lubed my rifle numerous times to familiarize myself with the ins and out of the RFB platform. I also cleaned the gas system thuroughly. So yesterday I was invited out to a friends and family day at my local range and decided to bring the RFB, I was nervous to say the least. Ammo used was 149 grain military surplus, not sure on exact brand. I am happy to report that it ran flawlessly. I used two different mags, and the adjusted the gas rather quickly. I was completely blown away by the slight shove of the recoil impulse. Of all the guns I shot that day the RFB A was the highlight for me. That and the fact that I feel lucky that mine worked rather well. And it sure is a head turner. People couldn't get enough of the RFB.

lol...dunno how you can buy a gun then take it straight to the safe.  hell i go straight from my ffl to the nearest gun range with a new gun purchase.  i'm very interested in the RFB right now....the 24" hunter variant in OD green.  i'm curious to know what your accuracy is from a 100yds with your gun.

I'm mostly a tavor Guy.I got my rfb first about 3.5 years ago? But the next week I was pulling the trigger on the tavor its Israeli ....I didn't see it first but when I did I couldn't resist.that said my rfb isn't 100% or near it but still I LOVE it.to me the ergos and comfort are unmatched not to mention. 308!! Like you said impulse is good my heavy savage bolt bumps hard rfb well I just wish it was 100% I wonder if gear head or somebody has custom work to improve function?  I'm glad yours seems good. Bullpups, brothers with different mothers.
