I am considering getting the 24" RFB and wondering if some owners would comment on it.  Seems like the extra length would help with accuracy but I am wondering if it would change how the gas adjustment is done.  I do have an FN P90 and so far it has been a no brainer to shoot.  On the other hand I see lots of posts about how the RFB needs to be dialed in right and mags can also be an issue.  While I do like to play around with my guns and have no problem taking them apart I also expect them to fire and cycle like I expect.

I currently have this question posed on the Keltec forum about the 24" and how the barrel length has affected gas tuning and performance.  There has to be some effect due to dwell time, but I can't recall anyone complaining about it on the 24" since I've been a member over there.  There aren't a ton of them out there, but enough to get some feedback, I hope.

My RFB hunter shoots about 2 MOA. The longer 24"  barrel doesn't seem to add to much to accuracy than the 18" version. But, it does add velocity. The bullet is more effective at longer distances. I.e. it hits harder further out.

Sorry for the necropost. But I figured someone reading this thread might want this information.

Gonna pile on the necroposting!

I got one.  It makes for a pretty heavy gun overall.  Gas adjustment is pretty wild, there's definitely more dwell time and that seems to allow my Hunter to adjust quite a ways out, significantly more clicks than what Chad suggested for the 18" RFB.

I've read plenty of conflicting info when it comes to the RFB. I've never been a real big fan of Kel Tecs--although they do look pretty cool. But the RFB seems like you either love it or hate it. Never had the chance to shoot it myself.
