It doesnít exist.  Never seen in the wild.  A custom gun for Chad Enos most likely. Buy the Lucky Irishmanís handguard if you want one.

I think they have it designed, itís just a matter of releasing it. I had emailed them over a year ago about it and they said they were working on it........

I like this one a lot better than the Lucky Irishman option.

Maybe we should start emailing them again.   How/where did you email them exactly?

Looks awesome,

But I would like the overall design to improve. to have more really useful stuff: Double sided charge handle, extended upper rail for at least 3 inches
Less sear reset length, better chemical resistant material for gas regulator clicker pin (after 1500 shots mine looks like someone chewed it) Better hammer fixation which excludes wobbling. And of course a large and convenient bolt release lever.

Moreover, RDB becomes dangerous when operator used suppressor for 35 shots. When rifle is dirty, it jams or makes burst fire. That is not acceptable!

Chad said that those rails are made by Kel-Tec and I believe they are ready to ship now. The rifle is an RDB that kind of blends (I believe I have this right) a survival model in it. I think the stock extends and collapses as well. The barrel may be thin like the survival model too. Its an interesting rifle.

Yeah, thin barrel. From the shot show footage (check the Shot Show thread) it looks like they kept the retractable stock in order to keep the legal length high enough to not be an SBR with the 16" barrel.

So, basically a survival RDB with a pistol grip and tactical handguard plus maybe some other changes.

This new variant has me interested in the RDB again...how is it acting with USGI mags now?

I know my first gen RDB had issues retaining them...but not poly.

My current RDB is about a year old and has never had a problem with any style mag. I use them interchangeably all the time, even at a match. Now the steel mags I have will not work well at all.
They worked fine in my FS2000 but not the RDB, so I put them away in a box.

Yeah the first release RDB didn't keep my DH USGI mags in place...every other platform from SCAR, ARX, AR to Tavor works perfectly...I know some had that issue with USGI as well on the Keltec forum...which I thiiiiiiink...KelTec updated the geometry slightly....

I got an RDB last year.   I have a ton of the steel ARX 100 magazines and can't recall any problems using them with the RDB.   What issues were you having exactly?
