    I've been looking at the SU-16 "Charlie" rifle for backpacking/BoB use. I wanted to see if anyone here has used it, if so, how do you like it. At 4.7 pounds itÂ’s amazingly light. It takes standard AR mags including a 100 round c-mag (the stock still folds and extends with a thirty round clip), and flash suppressers, and it has integrated picatinny rail for standard sight attachments. Thank you for your thoughts, and any alternative suggestions.

    An ultra-light AR-15 (admittedly, probably slightly more, but still very light) can be built, albeit for more money. The AR-15 will have greater durability and a better range of parts available, as well as a proven track record. There are very mixed reports about Kel-Tec's and while I love light, I won't be looking at Kel-Tec any time soon for a combat rifle.
