You’re looking at the SRS-A1 Covert from Desert Tech. It’s an incredibly compact — 27 inches overall length — bolt action, bullpup sniper rifle with a “1/2 MOA or better” guarantee. In 60 seconds the operator can swap out the barrel and bolt for any one of seven calibers in an array of barrel lengths. The one seen above is rocking .308 Win in a 16″ barrel. Desert Tech has a lot of other cool stuff in the works, too, including ammo and suppressors . . .
Here’s that rapid barrel swap in real time:
As you’d expect, DT’s ammo is billed as ultra-premium, match-grade stuff.
DT’s suppressors look pretty straightforward, but have some neat features. Their #1 concern appears to be accuracy — minimal, completely-repeatable POI shift and an expected reduction in group sizes — but they’re also extremely lightweight (.30 cal can weighs 16 oz) and are self-tightening.
Yeah, we’ve all been waiting to see the MDR finally hit dealer shelves. I’m hearing August, now, for first retail deliveries. The one above is configured for .308, and the one below for 5.56. It’s the same gun, though, and can switch calibers with what’s supposed to be a simple barrel, bolt, and magwell block swap. A .300 BLK conversion should also be available.
Apparently I can expect an HTI in .50 BMG to arrive at my FFL next week. A <1/2 MOA, bullpup .50 cal? This is going to be fun.
