DRD Tactical has announced its newest firearm, the KIVAARI Semi-Automatic Rifle in .338 Lapua Magnum.

The KIVAARI is designed to be a quick take down rifle using DRD’s patented quick change barrel system.

The rifle features a 24-inch barrel with 1/10 twist, ambidextrous controls including the safety selector, bolt catch and magazine release, a Geissele two-stage trigger, a Magpul PRS adjustable stock, a Magpul M-LOK rail for accessory attachments, left side non-reciprocating charging handle, a Silencerco QD muzzle brake for suppressor use, an Atlas bipod and two 10-round box magazines.

DRD’s KIVAARI has an overall length of 47 inches assembled and comes with a Tactical Taylor Trekker backpack.

The rifle weighs only 14.6 pounds empty including the bipod because it operates on DI gas system.
