Desert Tech MDR

Desert Tech MDR

Desert Tech showed the new Micro Dynamic Rifle, or MDR, at the 2014 SHOT Show.  The new rifle is a bullpup-style, auto loading rifle that will be available in a wide variety of configurations.  Semi-auto and select fire versions will be available.

The system is still under development, with production expected to start in 2015.  While nothing is set in stone, the company has a target price of $2,450 for the .308 Win rifle.  Other calibers will include .223 Rem and .300 BLK.

Watch the below video for an explanation of the rifle by a company rep:

    Kinda wish the bolt release was beside the magazine tunnel instead of behind it, but I guess they did that to keep it ambi. Do like that the mag release is where its easy to reach.

      The magazine release looks like black magic. I would love to know how that mechanism works and how well it works.
