DRD Tactical proudly announces the new Paratus rifle, a revolutionary takedown, semi-automatic rifle system in caliber .308/7.62x51mm that can be taken from its hard-case and assembled, without any tools, in less than a minute.
The Paratus features a MIL-STD 1913 Picatinny top rail for mounting optics, a lower fore end rail for handgrips, bipods or lights and additional accessory rails at both the 3 and 9’o clock positions.
Designed for the Clandestine Break-Down Semi-Automatic Rifle (CSR) proposal issued by the military’s Joint & Special Operations Program (JSOP), the Paratus ships in a 16”x10”x6” hard case for transport that accommodates the Paratus rifle, two (2) Magpul PMAGS and eye/ear protection. The case also includes cutouts for a Trijicon scope (not included).
Additional calibers and barrel lengths are in development and testing at this time and will be made available at a later date. With a MSRP of $5,615, the Paratus 16 is currently shipping and available through RSR and Clyde Armory. Other models are Paratus-16S with adjustable gas block for suppressor use and Paratus-12 SBR (NFA item) also suppressed fire capable. Learn more at DRDtactical.com.
