RFB-C stands for Rifle, Forward-ejecting Bullpup (Canadian edition). Why forward-ejecting? Because it allows the RFB-C to be the first truly ambidextrous .308 Win Bullpup ever developed.
RFB-C stands for Rifle, Forward-ejecting Bullpup (Canadian edition). Why forward-ejecting? Because it allows the RFB-C to be the first truly ambidextrous .308 Win Bullpup ever developed. The patented, dual-extractor system maintains control of the case from the moment it leaves the magazine and upon firing, pulls the fired case from the chamber and lifts them to push them into an ejection chute above the barrel, where they exit. The Bullpup configuration and tilting-block mechanism allow the 18.5" model to be only ~26.7" long, or as much as 14" shorter in overall length than its competitors with equal barrel lengths. Furthermore, the stock and mechanism cross-section is similar to a conventional rifle, in stark contrast to existing Bullpup rifles. The RFB-C is also the safest Bullpup ever developed because the breech is separated from the shooters face by two layers of 1.6 mm steel. In the highly unlikely event of a case rupture, gas expansion is directed downwards through the magazine well to protect the shooters head and face.
The RFB-C is a short-stroke gas piston operated semi-automatic rifle in .308 Win caliber. It accepts standard metric FAL type magazines which work "drop free" and do not need to be tilted in. One 5 round Short (Large Mag Shown) magazine is included*. Barrels on current models are 18.5" long bull barrels. All controls are fully ambidextrous; the reciprocating operating handle can be switched to either side. The trigger mechanism is second to no other Bullpup ever built and better than nearly all commercial semi-auto rifles. The safety disconnects the trigger and blocks the hammer action. A Mil-Spec Picatinny rail is attached rigidly to the barrel. No open sights are provided, allowing the user to select from the very best new optics and sight systems available. The RFBc comes with a two point sling that can be easily configured to suit the user's preference. Available accessories include a free-floating, four-sided Picatinny forend, bipod mounts, a removable bayonet lug for use with NATO style bayonets including our own folding bayonet, and many more.
