The SU-16C has a true folding stock and can be fired in the folded condition. It also has an integrated dust cover and a case deflecting operating handle. The barrel is 16" long and of medium weight. The muzzle is threaded 1/2x28 to accept standard attachments. The "Charlie" is only available in parkerized finish with black polymer components. The SU-16C is not a replacement for the original SU-16 but a compliment for customers that put a premium on ruggedness and adaptability.
The SU16CA is a hybrid of the SU16C and SU16A rifles. It is an SU16C rifle with the folding stock replaced with the fixed stock of the SU-16A rifle. The only other difference is that it will include 2 magazines like the SU16A.

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.
