Our Assessment:  The SU16 lineup can be summed up in 3 words: Adaptable, Durable, and Modular.  These rifles were built with utility dominating the mind.  The KEL TEC SUB 2000 introduced a pistol caliber rifle that could be folded up and taken anywhere.  But where the 9mm round lacked in strength and range, the 5.56 for the SU16 makes up for it.  These rifles fold up beautifully to be carried anywhere making them the perfect high powered trail gun  The sleek design and impact-resistant Zytel polymer help this gun stand out in a field saturated with AR builds. This rifle offers flexibility and fun all in one package whether you’re using it in your range day lineup or needing a reliable gun to carry in the backcountry.
