Ok, just to get your heart rate up more, here are more pictures:Gun_Nut_2k1 said:OMG. :shock: I have died and gone to KT heaven! You have just addressed EVERY issue, little bother, and wish I have had for the SU-16! Oh man I can't wait till the 3rd quarter
Judging by what I see on the Kel-Tec parts page for the SU, it APPEARS to take a standard AR type barrel. While KTrangers tend to be tinkerers by definition, if you had planned to make many modifications to the SU, I think I would have recommended an AR instead. Some guns lend themselves to this quite well... the AR15 and the 1911 being prime examples of big erector sets. Thousands of aftermarket goodies and optional modifications exist for both. What I don't see on their parts diagram are the AR barrel indexing slot and the barrel pin. At the very least, you will need a special barrel wrench to remove it and a torque wrench guaged in ft/lbs to reinstall it IF it will take an AR barrel. I also don't see a gas port on top of the barrel which all AR barrels would have.MikeG22 said:How is the barrel attached on a normal su-16? I was thinking about adding a custom made heavy wieght match type barrel. Is it even possible to take the old one out without damaging the receiver?
