If 5.7×28 velocity is your thing, the R50 is the right carbine for you. This side-folding tack driver gives you maximum speed, accuracy and power downrange with its 16 inch, threaded barrel and optic mounting option. Like many KelTecs, the R50 is ideal for small game hunting, bullseye shooting or just showing off for your friends at the range.
Our Belgium buddies knew exactly what they were doing when they developed the 5.7×28 cartridge back in the day, but what they didn’t know is that we would design a carbine that sends that little bullet downrange with the speed and accuracy of a laser beam. The R50 series of rifles comes with an ambidextrous side-folding stock which gives you that stability for repeatable bullseyes.
Having a lightweight, compact and versatile rifle that houses plenty of firepower is a must for any gun enthusiast, especially those of us that enjoy the outdoors. With a total of 50 rounds on board at any given time, the R50 answers that call.
When and where high firepower, excellent accuracy and minimal recoil are needed, the R50 checks all the boxes. With plenty of rail space to mount a light and optic, this rifle sits nicely in the security and home defense role. Be a force multiplier for safety and add your favorite suppressor to the R50’s 1/2×28 muzzle threads.

This sport utility rifle takes the same firepower of the P50 and side-folding versatility of the R50 to create the ultimate trail gun, camping companion and of course, home Defender.MSRP: $815

R50 stands for Rifle – 50 Rounds in complementing contrast to the P50, the pistol version of the same platform. This carbine features a side-folding stock that rests nicely on either side of the grip when folded and a ½ x 28 threaded – 16 inch barrel. It does come with some utility sights that are adjustable for windage and elevation, however the R50 receiver offers over 7 inches of picatinny rail space up top for mounting just about any optic or accessory you like. 2 inches of rail space on the bottom is ideal for light and grip options. There’s a QD sling cup just above the magazine release for mounting a single point sling and the AR style charging handle offers smooth manipulation.MSRP: $815
