About Product

The RDB is a semi-automatic, magazine fed rifle for 5.56NATO/.223REM or other intermediate cartridges. The bullpup design provides the operator with a compact well balanced rifle. The modular construction allows a multitude of variations or accessories. The RDB features a revolutionary downwards ejection and fully ambidextrous controls, enabling the RDB to be fired from both the dominant and non-dominant side. Two integral MIL-STD-1913 Picatinny rails, located above the barrel and on the handguard, come standard with the RDB for mounting compatible accessories. The RDB maintains a center of gravity over the grip assembly to facilitate ease of handling and balance. The RDB comes equipped with numerous ambidextrous sling attachment points compatible with a hook style swivel. The different sling attachment points on the RDB should be used to mount the included 11” wide nylon sling but will also accommodate most hook style aftermarket slings. The RDB features an ambidextrous rotating safety located behind the trigger on the grip assembly. When the safety is activated, it blocks the sear-bar from releasing and prevents the trigger from being pulled. The RDB is a gas operated firearm. The rifle has been adjusted at the factory to operate with standard M193 type ammunition. Other variations or brands may have different gas pressure curves and require adjustment. The RDB has a very long bolt carrier travel contributing to a soft and manageable recoil. Ideally, the carrier should never touch the back of the receiver. Too much gas pressure on the piston will give a sharper recoil and deform the ejected cases. However, a minor dent at the mouth of the casing indicates proper case ejection. Too little gas may cause an ejection failure and malfunction. The gas regulator can be turned by hand or by a cartridge, when hot.
