This year at SHOT Show Magpul has released some very interesting products. The first segment is dedicated to the “marriage” between Uncle Sam and Mother Russia with the release of some new rifle furniture for AKs.
Magpul ZHUKOV-S Stock
The Magpul Zhukov-S Stock is a no-compromise folding stock for the modern AK. The Zhukov-S Stock casts aside traditional AK stock shortcomings and offers a folding, collapsible stock with QD sling mounts, modular Cheek Risers, and a shock-absorbing rubber butt-pad for superior traction. The Zhukov has right-side folding for compatibility with side-mounted optics. Designed to fit most common stamped AK receivers without modification via a unique wedge block, the durable injection molded polymer Zhukov-S Stock redefines the human interface with the AK platform.
Magpul MOE AK Stock
Providing Magpul construction and ingenuity to the venerable AK platform, the Magpul MOE AK Stock is an optimized fixed stock for most stamped-receiver rifles. Featuring the unique wedge block fitment of the Zhukov-S Stock, the MOE AK Stock provides internal storage, optimized QD sling swivel placement, a shock absorbing rubber butt-pad for positive placement, and user-selectable snap on Cheek Risers.
Magpul PMAG D-60 AR/M4
The PMAG D-60 is a durable, lightweight, highly reliable 60-round 5.56×45 NATO/.223 Remington polymer magazine for AR15/M4 compatible weapons. With a larger capacity than previous PMAGs, the PMAG D-60 gives the shooter 60 rounds of ammunition, effectively allowing the same round count as two standard capacity 30-round magazines without requiring a critical reload. The unique drum configuration keeps the height of the magazine manageable as well, allowing prone firing and easier storage. Features a paint pen dot matrix for easy marking and a rear window for instant capacity indication. Compatible with a wide range of NATO firearms such as the M4, M16, SCAR MK16/16S, HK416, MR556, M27 IAR, and others.
Magpul PMAG GL9 – Glock 17
The PMAG 17 GL9 is a 17-round magazine featuring durable polymer construction, paint pen dot-matrix for labeling, tool-less floor plate removal for ease of maintenance, and a visible capacity indicator hole on the body. The PMAG 17 GL9 is compatible with all full-size 9mm Glock handguns, as well as compact and sub-compact variants with some protrusion below the grip.
Magpul HUNTER 700 Stock
Made from reinforced polymer and a machine finished, anodized A380 cast aluminum bedding block, the Magpul Remington 700 Hunter Stock offers users a fully adjustable length of pull, comb height, and enhanced ergonomics. Compatible with all Remington 700 Short Actions, this stock requires no bedding and is a true “drop-in” solution for the end user. This stock is also M-LOK compatible to accept a broad range of accessories. Also available is our Bolt Action Magazine Well, which allows the rifle to be used with detachable box magazines without the need for custom inletting.
On January 9th 2014 Desert Tech, formerly Desert Tactical Arms, has announced a new product for Shot Show 2014: the Micro Dynamic Rifle (MDR).
The MDR is a compact bullpup rifle. According to the official press release this rifle allows the user to convert, without any tool, between 5 different calibers. The DMR uses an innovating and patented system to eject the brass forward. It also has fully ambidextrous controls (mag release, fire switch, bolt release), which allows any operator to use this weapon in any position.
The DMR seems to be very portable with its compact and balanced design, with an overall length of 26″ (66cm). It also seems to have an even more compact version of 20″ (50cm) that utilizes a 10.5″ (26cm) barrel.
The weight of the gun waves between 7.12 lbs to 7.5 lbs (3.2 kg – 3.4 kg). The gun seems to be assembled with multiple polymer-made components, in order to lower the weight.
A key feature of all the Desert Tech products is the adaptability. The best way is to have a tool that can adapt to different mission configurations within minutes. Like other Desert Tech (former DTA) rifles (like the SRS, SRS-A1, SRS HTI) the Micro Dynamic Rifle can quickly switch between different calibers, but in this case without tools. The barrel exchange is designed to retain the barrel zero without need to compensate after the process.
About what calibers will this rifle utilize, to whom it will be available or other details we have to wait for Shot Show 2014.
With the release of this rifle Desert Tech aims to transfer its adaptable and versatile design from precision rifles to carbines. We will see very soon how the public will react to this novelty.
