The Desert Tech MDR (Micro Dynamic Rifle) is a compact semi-automatic rifle with a bullpup design similar to the Tavor.
The overall length of the Desert Tech MDR is just 26” when using a 16” barrel and weighs only 7.12-7.5 lbs. This makes it legal to own without a special SBR tax stamp. We will also be able to offer a 10.5” barrel (tax stamp required) in the future which brings the overall length to 20”.
Not only is it small and lightweight, but it is also multi-caliber capable and fully ambidextrous with no modifications necessary. The Desert Tech MDR is currently available in 5.56x45mm and 7.62x51mm calibers in 16” barrels and available as conversion kits. A unique feature to the MDR is that it has a patent pending sighting system that will retain a barrels zero. This eliminates the need to compensate for any impact shift. It comes with one P-Mag, threaded barrel with an A1 flash hider.
The thread specifications are 5/8×24 for the 7.62x51mm where the 5.56x45mm uses a 1/2×28 thread pitch. Color choices are Black or Flat Dark Earth.
Total price for the MDR is $1999 for the 5.56 and $2249 for the 7.62 model.
