Hands-On With the Desert Tech MDR in 5.56

Almost exactly a year ago, TTAG reviewed Desert Tech’s shiny new bullpup battle rifle, the MDR. One of its selling features is quick and easy caliber conversions, though no factory conversions have been available (and just one aftermarket 6.5 Creedmoor option). Until now. Well, until soon… On a recent visit to Desert Tech’s Salt Lake […]

Gun Review: DPMS GII Compact Hunter

DPMS, purchased by Remington about a decade ago, is one of the largest manufacturers of AR-15 and AR-10 rifles in the world. They’ve developed the DPMS GII as the ultimate evolution of the .308 Modern Sporting Rifle; smaller, lighter, and more reliable than AR-10s of the past. TTAG snagged this Compact Hunter model and put […]

Gun Review: Desert Tech MDR

  Desert Tech unveiled the MDR in January of 2014. Development and supply chain issues finally resolved, these .308 bullpups are just now hitting online retailers and select dealer shelves near you. But should one hit your safe? We aimed to find out . . .     MDR stands for Micro Dynamic Rifle. I’m […]

Gun Review: Lancer Systems L30 Heavy Metal Rifle

Lancer Systems, manufacturer of the best 5.56 and 7.62 AR magazines on the market, was kind enough to loan me a L30 Heavy Metal rifle for use in my .308 Muzzle Brake Test. Although I had already shot L30s in all of the available configurations, even winning a gun writer competition with one, I still couldn’t […]

.30 Caliber Muzzle Brake Shootout

In response to popular demand, we’ve scaled it up a notch and have taken the 5.56 muzzle brake testing to 7.62. Specifically, 24 muzzle devices threaded 5/8-24 for use with .30 caliber cartridges joined in the fun, all of them getting tested for recoil reduction prowess on a .308. Come on in, the water’s just […]

Gun Review: Century Arms C308 Rifle

Some years ago, Century Arms‘ first attempt at assembling CETME-style, .308 battle rifles from surplus parts didn’t go extremely well, and the product was hit-or-miss. The market has been a bit hesitant to dive back into a Century Arms-branded CETME/G3/HK91, but the most recent effort here, the C308, is definitely proving to be a solid performer […]

New From PWS: MK212SD Suppressed-Only AR-10

Lindsey from Primary Weapons Systems gives us another rundown of one of PWS’s new products for 2015. Previously it was their GLOCK EDS, and this time around it’s a new rifle in their MK2 series called the MK212SD. As you’d expect from anything with “SD” at the end of its title, this rifle is designed […]

5.56, .270 And 7.62 Ammo: When Is It Worth Handloading?

  TTAG doesn’t spend a lot of time talking about handloading. That’s probably because it’s not really that much fun. Unless you’re some kind of Zen master, handloading isn’t something you do because you love to do it. It’s something you do because you love to do what handloading lets you do: shoot your guns […]

TTAG Project: 1,000 Yard Rifle for $500

To many shooters, hitting something from the 1,000 yard line is like putting a man on the moon. It can be done, but it takes a smart person, specialized gear, and a lot of money. Of the two happiest moments of my shooting career, one took place on the 1,000 yard line at USMC Base […]

Gun Review: Mossberg 100 ATR

I walked into my gun store last week fully expecting to buy a Remington 700 in .308 Winchester. As I was walking down the aisles toward that long-touted paragon of bolt actions this little beauty caught my eye. It’s a short action bolt action rifle chambered for .308 Winchester made by Mossberg. It’s called the […]
