The Kintrek KBP-1 was a short-lived sporting rifle manufactured by Kintrek Incorporated.


The KBP-1 is a bullpup weapon manufactured by Kintrek International, and is also the only known weapon manufactured by said company. Production begun in 1991 with the weapon being sold at about $200, but ended a year later due to poor sales and shooters not taking a real liking the the bullpup design, effectively putting Kintrek out of business.

Design DetailsEdit

The KBP-1 is a bullpup weapon that fits a 17-round magazine in the rear. It has an ejection port covered by a hinged dust cover. When swung up, the weapon ejects from the right, effectively making it a right-handed only weapon. However, with the dust cover put down, the weapon ejects through the stock, making it suitable for ambidextrous use. The weapon's charging handle is located at the top of the weapon, and needs to be pulled back quite hard in order to charge the weapon. The weapon has a grip safety which when depressed disables an internal firing pin block. The weapon also has A-2 sights, which are very poorly placed; they only protrude about 2 inches above the barrel, making them very easy to get damaged. Any damage to the sights nearly destroys the firearm's value. The KBP-1 has a synthetic stock that is of a one-piece design.
