The guys at Desert Tech make serious rifles for serious operators. Their initial claim to fame was based on their bullpup version of high-end bolt-action sniper rifles, like the SRS-A1. It’s about a foot shorter than a conventional rifle of the same caliber and barrel length. Perfect for home defense? Not really. I admire this type of high-quality rifle from afar, but I don’t have any use for one.
Enter the DT MDR or “Micro Dynamic Rifle”. It’s a bullpup semi-auto AR with ambidextrous controls and a forward ejection system. Nice, but there are other bullpup ARs on the market. What makes this rifle stand out is two features: (1) lightweight and (2) caliber conversions in two form factors: 5.56 and 7.62×51.
Yes, you read that right: 7.62×51 (.308). The magwell is large enough for the .308, and it takes an insert to be able to accept the smaller 5.56…This post was originally published on this site
