Kel-Tec CNC Industries Inc. showed their very interesting 7.62x51mm NATO (7.62mm NATO)/.308 Win. bullpup battle rifle/carbine called the RFB Rifle/Carbine. "RFB" stands for "Rifle Forward ejection, Bullpup."  DefenseReview only got a very brief look at the Kel-Tec RFB rifle/carbine at the Kel-Tec booth, since we were so busy at the show, but the rifle looked really good.

We wanted to talk with one of the Kel-Tec staff about it, but…

they were busy with other people at the time, and our schedule was tight. However, we're going to be giving Kel-Tec a call very soon about the new weapon, and look forward to T&E'ing one at the range as soon as possible.

Right-click on this link and then click on "Save Link As" (Mozilla Firefox) or "Save Target As" (Microsoft Internet Explorer) if you'd like to see the Kel-Tec RFB carbine/rifle in action. The video highlights the RFB's forward eject aspect. In the video, the RFB appears to have a significant amount of recoil that's most likely due to the weapon's relatively light weight.
