My biggest concern and why I got rid of my RDB is the mag release...it required no pressure for it to release the mag and I didnt trust it. It needs to be a paddle release like the original tavor or a button

Well after switching my MDR order on June 12 to an SRS covert 300wm.... I have yet to receive a tracking number. So if you are switching your order, know that for $3k more you can be on another DTA back order that is looking like it is going to take as long as my last know MDR date of September. Hope its a shooter because I could have built 4 TAC 20 300wms for the same price and got them same week.

yeah my wife broke down finally. "well you wanted the more expensive one anyway, and you have already missed one hunting season. get the one you wanted." second season approaches. and my friend and his dad have built 3 remages on custom frames during this time. all shoot well and they are still under the bill for the srs lol.

I gotta agree with thehun.

Have they given you an expected ship date?

To me the Tavor and RDB mag release are pretty much the same. Only the Tavor's is further away and requires more reach. Then again, I have skinny hands and wrist.

Lol yeah it was like "2 weeks" when I ordered it. I waited 2 weeks... now it has been 2 weeks every week when I call. 2 weeks ago it was actually 1 week. but then last week it was 2 weeks again... I actually tried to source the barrel from short action customs but they were 8 weeks out. so everything is sitting at DTA but maybe they will get it out by end of next week I guess. they have had all the parts for going on the 3rd week now as far as I can tell.

Why not just get a full refund and purchase an SRS from a dealer like Primal Rights? From what I understand, they'll get you an SRS much earlier than September.

EDIT: Maybe this isn't possible, based on your above post that DT is already putting it together for you.

Not a bullpup but I'm really thinking of getting one of those Gemtech Integra uppers instead.

I ordered with a full size srs barrel. not a stubby covert one.... both are DTA parts but you wont find an SRS covert at any other vender with a full length barrel.

I don't think that's true. I'm pretty sure vendors like Primal Rights that specialize in SRS orders will customize your SRS beyond what Desert Tech will do. Take a look at their website here.

I'm not trying to make you change your order or anything—if you're happy with your decision to order from DT (or if you're locked into that decision), I'm sure you're going to get a stellar rifle (eventually  Evil). I just don't think it's accurate to say there aren't any vendors who will put a full length barrel in a Covert.

I finally broke down, violated my "never Kel-Tec again" policy and picked up an RDB when I found out how much less expensive they were than I expected.

I fully blame Frostburg, HBeretta, Tim from MAC, and one of my friends who kept letting me shoot his.

Of course, with my typical KT experiment luck, I received it a few days ago, unboxed it, and broke it within a couple of minutes.

I fondled it, slapped in a mag, and ran the charging handle. The bolt failed to lock in place upon return, the trigger is slack, and the charging handle slides freely back and forth.

I was too disappointed and have been too busy to investigate further. I'm not sure I want to begin taking apart and troubleshooting a new rifle, but I dislike the thought of having to send it back to KT. I guess I'll call KT on Monday and see if it needs to go back to Cocoa for some Florida R&R.

Hopefully, my RDB experience will improve going forward.



Wait, what happened? If you inserted an empty mag and worked the action, as Hberetta stated, then the charging handle will remain slack until you send the bolt home. If the bolt failed to lock open and was thus closed, then the spring tension should have kept the charging handle fixed forward. The trigger should have not been slack. I'm sorry this happened to you. The RDB is normally a dream to shoot. I suspect there may be operator error involved here, or you just got a bad luck RDB. The empty magazine you used may not have activated the bolt hold open.  I hope your problem gets resolved.

You guys were correct. It was either operator ******edness or stupidly inserting a junk mag I've never used for anything and wouldn't ever use for anything.  oops

It was an empty thermold mag that came with a rifle when I experienced the issue. With a G2 magpul, it works exactly as described above loaded or empty. This trigger is sort of unbelievable for a bully.

The thermold is in my recycle roll cart.

Thanks very much for the detailed replies. Can't wait to go beat this thing up at the range. It seems perfect for a vehicle combat class.

I bought a CZ Scorpion Evo 3 and a P320 full size, but those were not in lieu of the MDR. I'm still holding out on my pre-order.

I've been eyeballing the CZ Shadow 2 recently. I've gotten into USPSA and thinking about getting serious with it.
