The folks at Dark Storm Industries sent over a little note this morning announcing that they’re releasing an AR-10 pattern rifle in .308 Winchester as well as 6.5 Creedmoor. Yeah, it’s another AR pattern rifle. Try to contain your excitement.
But don’t be too jaded. The fact that they’re making one in 6.5 Creedmoor is cool. So is the fact that they have New York and California compliant “featureless” versions, too. Tyler’s response to the press release: “I want to run one in a carbine competition.” I’d love to see him try.
Here’s their presser:
Dark Storm Industries, LLC, a New York based firearms manufacturer, is proud to introduce its newest offering in our line of Modern Sporting Rifles.
