In a press release, Diamondback says its new 6.5 Creedmoor AR sports a 20-inch stainless fluted barrel, 15-inch Victor M-LOK rail and Double Side Port Muzzle Break.
In addition, the Florida-based company partnered with The Mako Group to feature the FAB Defense GL-Shock stock and AGR-43 rubber overmolded pistol grip on the DB1065CB. The GL-Shock stock boasts a patented “anti-rattle” mechanism with no protruding parts—so there’s no snagging—and it comes with a built-in silicone chrome alloy. The AGR-43 pistol grip, meanwhile, has multi-textured features that provide a more secure grip, in addition to a better shooting angle, heightened control, less wrist fatigue and a hinged floorplate for storing batteries.
The rifle isn’t listed yet on Diamondback’s website, but according to the listing on Gallery of Guns, the DB1065CB in 6.5 Creedmoor has an overall length of 38.5 to 42 inches, and weighs in at nine pounds. It also ships out with a 5-round and a 20-round magazine.
The DB1065CB is set to be offered in black at a MSRP of $1,229, and flat dark earth for $1,259.
