DesertTech Modular Rifle

New from DesertTech at SHOT Show New from DesertTech at SHOT Show



The rifle has a “non-returnable” reloading handle, which can be rearranged if you are left-handed. The rest of the controls manually rearranged is not necessary, since they are ambidextral (suitable for both hands).

The MDR-C model will be available in two versions. This is either a .223 carbine with a barrel length of 16 inches, or a short-barreled rifle, also a caliber, but with a barrel length of 10,5 inches. The total length of the second is just over 53 cm, and the stores from AR approach it.

Barrels for rifles, as well as lining, interchangeable. So the model caliber .308 turns into a model caliber .223 simple replacement of the barrel.

These models are prototypes. They will still undergo changes, for example, the model of the .308 caliber will have a longer barrel trim so that the shooter in a panic does not put his hand under the muzzle and the reloading handle becomes ambidextral.

A lightweight polymer frame for the Remington 700 sniper rifle was also shown. The frame is printed on the 3D printer, but it will be equipped with a metal block for the receiver.

In the line of sniper rifles, the Covert model of the .338 Lapua Magnum caliber with a removable box magazine was introduced.

This is a bullpup rifle with a barrel length of 18 inches. Overall length - 96 cm. It is very easy to handle in confined spaces, in particular, in a car. There is also a model of the .308 caliber with a barrel length of 16 inches and a total length of 66 cm.

    A futuristic rifle — if you drop it in dirt, snow, water and then shake it off and try to shoot — when I try to pull the trigger, I doubt that it will fire.

      I doubt that the relevant tests have already been carried out, so "guessing on the coffee grounds" is premature, pointless and unproductive.
      Well, yes, it personally raises my complaints - this is the excessive complexity of the ejected cartridge case ejection system.

      Sorry, but where does the article say that this is an army rifle? And you don't need to drown it in a swamp, then bury it in the sand and put it under a tank track. And then "wet" the foe. I am sure that her future owners, members of shooting clubs, will take care of her and cherish her. And worn in a solid special case lined with velvet. Strange logic, to compare everything with AK - "here is a Kalashnikov and with wet sand in the barrel it breaks the rail!" It's just that this rifle is another "burst of creative weapons thought." It would be nice if Russian gunsmiths had a "long line" of small arms.

    How did you get, with your drop in different environments, any ensign (not to mention officers) for such handling of weapons at best will force you to clean the weapons for the entire unit, or else the panel will clear (and will be right for all 100).

      People tend to stumble, fall, hit protruding parts of the body and at the same time drop various objects, especially during a battle. Situations are different and you should not be so categorical.
      If, in front of me, it becomes a dilemma to drown or drown a weapon, then, believe me, without hesitation I will drown a weapon ...

              And you, the statistics of accidents, with careless handling of weapons, read. There you will see both schoolchildren who shot each other in a shooting range, and a policeman unsuccessfully laying down their weapons (this was in Voskresensk in early December), military (for example, in 2009, in the army, 6 people died due to careless handling of weapons).

                I confirm! Once I shot a pistol at home on the floor. He returned home after 2 days without sleep for business reasons, began to unload the gun in order to lock it in the safe, pulled out the clip, pulled it out, checked the barrel, clicked ... at that moment the cell phone rang, on autopilot I put the clip in the gun and put it on a table, 30 of minutes my brain was pushed on the phone, finally hanging up the phone, I pick up the gun and distort and click again, completely forgetting about the clip and too lazy to look into the receiver. The result is a hole in the new tile.
                And this is after 5 years of almost daily accumulation of reflexes with a gun. hi

                  Here, I remembered the case. Very similar. The acquaintance changed and came to the armory to put up a weapon. took out a spare clip and began to unload, at this time he was distracted by conversation, he was all so steamed and from lack of sleep, he took the barrel with a clip on the machine, twisted the bolt, and with the words "control release" unloads the barrel into the bullet catcher. Then, swearing in "mum's horns" he takes out a clip, and with the words "control descent" again fires at the unfortunate shield. After that, with the words "Oh, come on ... x" he goes to the commander to receive a lull. And this is a person who had real combat experience and good training.
                  And about the newcomers .... generally silent.

                    I don’t know how it happens when fighting, but during my childhood in the 80's, a young lady from the MCM shot herself in the leg, and this was far from the first training. The shooting gallery was immediately closed. Careless handling of weapons is a crime. I myself shot for several years from small-caliber weapons, but there were no such jambs. It shoots and mows not a weapon, but a man! And the demand for fatigue from the fathers - commanders, bringing it to that. Although the forest is cut - chips fly.

                      here, especially for such cases, when a soldier is "worn out" in guns and making bulletproof shields, because rarefaction, loading of a weapon is never complete without shooting - therefore, this should be done in a specially designated place and as safely as possible.

      The Kalashnikov assault rifle is reliable because it has large tolerances for fitting parts, as well as high inertia of a fairly heavy shutter. Being made with an accurate fit of parts - it will show the same reliability with weapons of the same manufacturing accuracy class, as shown by the experience of American AK manufacturers. Being really heavily contaminated - it will also give delays like any other heavily contaminated mechanical system.

      do not confuse God's gift with scrambled eggs, they also look at how a candidate with a weapon turns during a march, because if you kill him, you’ll clean right at the shooting range to pass the standard (as our warrant said - your weapon is your woman on the next two years) ...
      Take the same FN SCAR that US special forces use, do you think it is worse than Kalash?


      If our state wants to move forward, it is necessary to develop something new, and not stop there, just look at the exhibitions - we have the same thing from year to year, and look to the west - constantly something new - that snipers, that automatic rifles that the pistols with PP and machine guns ...

    The rifle gives the impression of a weapon oriented primarily to civilian markets. Within the framework of a single design, using the modular principle, several types of small arms were implemented at once, which will further reduce the cost of manufacturing the entire model range.
    As an army rifle - I don’t even know. In my opinion, the direction of development is not quite right. What for me multi-caliber in the army? - what would the quartermasters break their heads?
    In my opinion, the main direction in improving the army assault rifle should be to bring its characteristics closer to a single machine gun, while maintaining overall dimensions.
