New Products from DRD Tactical – SHOT Show 2022

DRD Tactical is known for quick takedown rifles. DRD has a lot ranging from a 300 Blackout in a pistol design or MFP, all the way up to a 338 Lapua—all quick takedown. They have got standard AR-15s. The DRD Aptus is an internal guide rod system, so it’s a little different. There’s no buffer tube and it can run folded configuration or extended. Once you take the barrel off, you can go from a 556 to a 300 blackout that quick—it takes about 30 seconds to take them off, put them back together.
