For those looking to buy a top-quality AR without breaking the bank, I would humbly recommend you consider one from DoubleStar Corp.
The company has roots that date back more than a quarter century through J&T Distributing, a respected AR rifle parts distributor. Responding to requests for the company to produce complete rifles, DoubleStar Corporation (DSC) was born.
Based in Winchester, Ky., along with J&T Distributing, DSC soon developed a popular line of AR-pattern rifles and carbines. What is interesting about the company’s offerings is the fact that it simultaneously views its offerings from the perspective of both a traditional manufacturer and a custom maker. Taking advantage of the benefits of a manufacturer and a distributor being located in the same facility, DSC offers both stock models and specialized
builds per customer request.
Following is a round up of some representative models from DSC’s line of stock rifles and carbines. Take a look and see what best fits your needs.
The C3 (Constant Carry Carbine) places 5.56x45mm power in a lightweight and compact package. Weighing in at 5.5 pounds, the handy little carbine features top-quality parts in its build. Surrounding the 16-inch, 1-in-9-inch-twist barrel and carbine-length gas system is a Samson Manufacturing 9-inch Evolution free-floating handguard.
DSC 300 BLACKOUT
Combining the light and compact handling characteristics of a 5.56mm M4-pattern carbine with the power and downrange performance of a .30-caliber cartridge, the DSC 300 Blackout carbine is ready for action. Featuring a flattop upper and a railed gas block, the carbine is ready for your choice of iron sights or optics.
DSC 3-GUN RIFLE
Built from the ground up for 3-Gun competition, the DSC 3-Gun Rifle was the result of consultation with top 3-Gun competitors on what features they felt a rifle like this should have. The 18-inch, fluted, stainless barrel, which features a 1-in-8-inch twist, is topped off with a Carlson Comps muzzle brake, and the free-floated handguard is a Samson Manufacturing 15-inch Evolution unit.
DSC MARKSMAN RIFLE
Manufactured to strict tolerances to deliver sub-MOA accuracy, the 5.56mm Marksman rifle is ready to deliver. The HBAR-pattern, 20-inch barrel features a 1-in-8-inch twist, is manufactured from stainless steel and is topped off with a five-slot Phantom flash suppressor. Surrounding the barrel is a free-floating Daniel Defense 12-inch, railed handguard, and just forward of that is a DSC Picatinny rail gas block.
DSC MIDNIGHT DRAGON
Developed for the precision rifle enthusiast, the 5.56mm Midnight Dragon from DSC delivers when it counts. The barrel of the rifle is a 24-inch stainless steel unit featuring spiral fluting and a 1-in-8-inch rate of twist, and it is housed within a free-floating, knurled, aluminum tube handguard.
This small sampling of rifles should give you a good idea of what DoubleStar Corporation can offer. But, remember that there are many more options available from the company. From stock-standard rifles to custom builds, DoubleStar can get you just the AR you need.
