Formerly known as Desert Tactical Arms, and best known for their kick-ass, bolt-action, bullpup sniper rifles, Desert Tech (as they are now known) are going to be releasing a new auto-loading, bullpup, tactical rifle platform known as the MDR at the SHOT Show.
UPDATE (from the Desert Tech press release):
The MDR (Micro Dynamic Rifle) is a perfectly balanced compact auto loading bullpup rifle that gives LE, Military and Government agencies an unrivaled ability to adapt and maneuver. The MDR converts without tools between 5 calibers. Using innovative technology such as the patent pending forward ejection mechanism and 100% ambidextrous controls the MDR can be used by any operator in any position;
- Portability – The MDR has unrivaled portability because it is lightweight, compact, ergonomic, and balanced with an overall length of 26″ (or 20″ with 10.5″ barrel) and a weight of 7.12 – 7.5 lbs
- Adaptable – The MDR is adaptable in both size and caliber. It can quickly convert between five calibers, and its patent pending sighting system retains barrel zeros without the need to compensate for any impact shift
- Ambidextrous – The MDR is fully ambidextrous with no modifications necessary. Our patent pending forward ejection mechanism and intuitive controls set a new bullpup stan dard for speed and precision.
All new Desert Tech rifles, ammunition products and training courses can be viewed at the 2014 SHOT show at booth #31502
