Accuracy is as good as you would expect from a battle rifle. The first 70 rounds resulted in 8 misfeets. These were caused by the ejected brass being caught by the case mouth and smashing against the feed ramp where the spent brass is deposited into the ejection shute. After that it did not occur again, so I attribute that to “break in”.
The rifle shoots very well. Recoil is not bad at all and my shoulder was still going strong after 100 rounds.
Craftsmanship is excellent and the rifle is easy to clean. After 100 rounds it was considerably cleaner than a gas impingement rifle would have been, and it could easily have gone 500-1000 rounds without being cleaned.

Kel-Tec RFB Carbine .308 Win / 7.62x51 Features:
The Kelt-Tec RFB is a short-stroke gas piston operated semi-automatic rifle in 7.62 mm NATO. The RFB's forward-ejection allows the it to be the first truly ambidextrous 7.62 NATO Bullpups. All controls are fully ambidextrous and the reciprocating operating handle can be switched to either side. The RFB features a dual-extractor system and tilting-block bolt mechanism to allow the 18" model to be only 26.1" long while still maintaining reliability. The RFB is among the safest Bullpups developed because the breech is separated from the shooter's face by two layers of 1.6 mm steel and in the unlikely event of a case rupture, gas is directed downwards through the magazine well to protect the shooters head and face. The barrel has a chrome-lined bore and chamber, threaded muzzle (5/8x24 TPI), and comes equipped with Keltec's A2-style Flash Hider. A Mil-Spec Picatinny rail is attached rigidly to the barrel. It accepts standard metric FAL type magazines which "drop free" and do not need to be tilted in. One 20-round magazine is included.
