With a break in the snowy weather, I thought it was the perfect time for a range day, and the perfect opportunity to begin test and eval on a new rifle: the KVD-15 Alef. Kavod Customs sells three different models: the Alef, Bet, and Gimel. Here are some of the specs on the KVD-15 Alef:
- Kavod flattop upper and lower
- A2 flash hider
- 16″ fluted barrel, 1:7 twist
- Magpul MOE fixed stock (A2 length)
- Hogue rubberized grip
- 2 stage trigger
- BCM Enhanced Mod 3 charging handle
- M16 mil-spec BCG, nickel boron coated
So far, I’ve put about 250 rounds through it and it handled them with ease. I’ve yet to experience a snag or hiccup of any kind. The KVD-15 Alef ships with two 30 round PMAGs, which fed just fine with them. The rifle doesn’t typically ship with sights, but for review purposes, Vidalia Police Supply, sent the KVD-15 Alef to me with Troy Folding Battle Sights (my own AR has Troy [fixed] battle sights, so I’m already familiar with them). As far as fit and finish goes, the KVD-15 performed as I would expect from a high quality AR-15 style rifle. The action is smooth and, thus far, it has fed reliably, as you can see from the video above.
Stay tuned for the full review, coming soon!
