The SU-16D is a gas operated, semi-automatic rifle in 5.56 mm NATO caliber. The barrel and chamber are chrome lined. All steel components are Parkerized. The "Delta" model rifles are intended as a personal weapon for non-infantry military personnel, special operations, SWAT law enforcement, and civilians in high risk environments. The SU-16D is especially suited for low intensity urban combat, such as ambush response from inside a vehicle, or fighting in confined spaces.
The concept of replacing the pistol with a carbine in military units is not new. The intermediate power 5.56 mm round and modern polymer materials make it possible to achieve a weapon of a size and weight only marginally larger than a Sub Machine Gun.
The SU-16D9 is less than 20" folded, weighs 4.7 lbs loaded with 30 rounds and has a practical range of over 150m.
The SU-16D has a conventional, long-stroke gas-piston operation and utilizes the proven Johnson/Stoner breech locking system. It is compatible with standard AR-15/M-16 magazines. The reciprocating bolt handle also functions as a case deflector. The rear sight is zeroed at 50 m and adjustable for windage. The front sight is of AR-15/M-16 type. Two integrated Picatinny rails will accept a multitude of standard accessories. Except for barrel, sights, and operating components, the SU-16 is made entirely of high impact, glass fiber reinforced polymer.
Great gun Review by Ben
Value Quality Price
Shoots great right out of the box. The only concern is the folding stock feels like it could break easily. Clearly not a combat rifle, but a great rifle otherwise. Perfect for hiking or as a truck gun.
