The SU-16A is a gas operated, semi-auto loading rifle chambered in 5.56 mm NATO caliber. It is intended to be the perfect everyman's sport and utility rifle. It has a 1:9" RH twist. Several features make the SU-16 a versatile sporting firearm, including a chrome-lined bore and chamber and integrated Picatinny rail for mounting different sight systems. The forend folds down to form a bipod for increased accuracy, the stock can store spare magazines, two 10-round magazines or one 20/30 round magazine will fit and the stock and trigger mechanism can be folded forward for added safety and to facilitate secure storage or carry under extreme conditions. Except for barrel and operating components, the SU-16 is made entirely of high impact reinforced polymer.
The SU-16B "Bravo" model retains all the features of the original SU-16, such as integrated bipod, Picatinny rail, and rotating stock with magazine storage. The "Bravo" model has a lighter and shorter barrel (by about 8 oz. and 2.3"), but still has a chrome-lined bore and chamber.
The SU-16C "Charlie" model retains most features of the original SU-16, such as integrated bipod, Picatinny rail, and AR-15/M-16 magazine compatibility. The front sight is integrated into the gas block and uses an AR-15/M-16 style front sight post for elevation adjustments. The SU-16C has a true folding stock and can be fired with the stock folded. A reciprocating dust cover and a case deflecting operating handle are also integrated into the rifle. The medium weight barrel is 16" long and is threaded 1/2x28 TPI at the muzzle. It has a chrome-lined bore and chamber. The "Charlie" has a Parkerized finish with black polymer components.
The SU-16CA is a hybrid of the SU-16C and SU-16A rifles. It comes with the same 16-inch barrel with chrome-lined bore and chamber and 1/2-28 threads as the C model. All features from the C model are retained and combined with the stock of the A model. The SU-16CA comes with two 10-round magazines that store in the stock and all the same Parkerized parts as the C model. Like the A model, the SU-16CA can be folded for storage, and it will not fire in the folded position. This allows for it to be purchased in most states that still have an "Assault Weapons Ban."

Very nice rifle for your money. I absolutely love this gun. It is extremely light weight, much lighter than my Smith and Wesson M&P15A. I also love that this gun is a piston driven system, like the Ak47--it does not inject hot gas directly into the chamber--the receiver stays much cooler than a standard AR-15. Be aware that there is a 200 round break-in period for the SU-16C. Within my first 200 rounds I had about 10 rounds that did not fully eject out of the receiver, I guess you would call it a stove-pipe; the bolt closed before the casing fully ejected out of the receiver. From what I have read this is normal for the first 200 round break-in. I cleaned the rifle and took it back out to shoot and have not had a single malfunction since then. I was shooting PMC .223 55 grain FMJ ammo, and it seems to really like it. I have not shot any other ammo through it yet. It does take your standard 30 round metal AR-15 magazines, and the butt stock WILL fold with the metal 30 round magazines inserted in the weapon. But if you are using P-Mag's, the butt stock will not fold due to the fact that the P-Mag's are a little bit longer/bigger at the base than your standard 30 round metal magazines, but you can still insert and shoot with the P-Mags but the butt stock will not fold under the weapon with the P-Mag inserted in the weapon. I have shot the rifle with the butt stock folded, and it is relatively easy to control using the butt stock as a forward grip. I put a variable 1-4 power red dot on it and it still weighs much less than any other AR-15 or Ak-47 I have ever held. This gun is going to be great for back-packing due to its low weight and short length with the butt stock folded. As for as accuracy, I have not shot it long distance yet, only about 50 yards and it is dead on at 50 yards. Will update this after shooting further distances.
