Grendel/Sako SRT



Log in to see fewer ads
Hi Folks!

I fully realize the Grendel/Sako SRT is not a rimfire rifle, but I'm hoping some of the Sako folks here can help answer some questions I've posted here:

Thanks!
Dave

You may have seen this already Dave but it's the most complete description of the rifle that I've read. https://www.thektog.org/articles/los...grendel-srt.6/

Definitely a compensator on the barrel and it has the look of a spring loaded quick change chuck on an air tool. Have you tried pulling back or forward after the 1/4 turn? It may thread off. Just a WAG.

I'd be bold and call Kel-Tec and see if they'll let you talk to George or give you his email address (321) 631-0068

Very interesting rifle, congratulations!

Frank

Very interesting rifle. It is obviously a George Kelgren project. The stock is the same designed on Kel-Tec SU-16 series of 5.56/223 carbines. George produced a small blow back polymer pistol back in the late 70’s to early 80’s. The pistol was known as Grendel and had an internal box magazine. Same idea as used on the C-96 broom handle. I believe George’s idea was to make a small light weight inexpensive pistol for concealed carry. If I remember correctly the Grendel pistol was fed by stripper clips and held around ten 380 ACP cartridges. A Friend actually bought the Grendel pistol but not having a detachable magazine didn’t help the pistol have enough buyers. The Grendel wasn’t in production for very long but the linage of this rifle has characteristics of the Kel-Tec and Grendel pistol.

I think the previous poster is correct in that the muzzle device is a compensator/muzzle brake maybe for use with a quick detach suppressor. Same idea as a quick disconnect Surefire muzzle brake for use with a suppressor. George has produced many innovative products and has a talent for thinking out of the box.

Thanks again!

I remember those way back. I regretted not buying one I saw at a gun show not long after its introduction way back when. The folding stock certainly has some advantages.

Mr. Kellgren definitely thinks outside the box. I purchased one of the P10 .380 automatics (fixed magazine, loading from top with or without standard 5.56 stripper clips). Has the longest trigger pull I've ever experienced - takes so long, you sometimes forget what you are doing and wander off doing something else
