Outside of purely military realm of PDWs , it seems KelTec is aimed at prepper /survival gun market, with all the corona shitshow (at the courrent vacination rates 5+years to get anywhere close to 80% population immunity), ever more autotarian rule i imagine guns are in for record sales in coming years.

I will likely be doing a a bit of 3d work on some new survival gun concepts both short and long barrel in the coming months after i finish up manufacturing my two current rifle designs

A search shows P90 mag length = 10.6 inches.  By my estimate, that puts P50 overall length at a whopping 14 inches!

Plus there is an entire magazine between the bore and the line of the pistol in the hand. It's going to climb more than any other gun in that calibre ever. It's really a case for one of those angled grips stuck to the rear of the gun more than a conventional pistol grip beneath the gun.

I don't understand why they are doing that. I'd put it on top like in the P90. This should also enable faster mag changes.

"I don't understand why they are doing that. I'd put it on top like in the P90. This should also enable faster mag changes"

The Keltec system has the barrel above the magazine, which results in a much lower height over bore for optics. 

The P90 height over bore is pretty brutal, as it both has the magazine, and then also has to have enough room for the magazine to easily enter.

This would also make for a shorter height weapon, making it less bulky to have in a thigh holster.

Totaly unacceptable unless you are selling next-gen squad optics then you can mount the sight 3x as high as needed

That's another reason to use an MP7 style weapon.  As well as being far slimmer than the keltec,  you could create a custom optic which is mounted extremely low. 

The stock would need to be angled downwards when in use.... like the b&t use. 

Thus your optic would be no taller than a pistol red dot

The problem with the steeply angled for optics stocks are they have increased muzzle rise.

TBH in all the reviews of the P90 I have read, nobody has complained that the gun is too bulky. And again, an MP7 style gun will not be able to accommodate a powerful enough cartridge, unless you go single stack. That is why I like the P90 style magazine solution. 
And a bulky gun in a thigh holster - yup annoying but I doubt that it is insurmountable to the extent that it will hinder adoption, compared to the advantage of carrying something the power of 5.45x39 around all the time with your hands free.

Edit: thinking about it, I can see the MP7 being more annoying in a thigh holster, given the height of the gun, which corresponds to he width of your thigh. That could be highly annoying. The width of the gun I see as less annoying.
