DRD Tactical Announces PARATUS Rifle Line
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE.....DRD Tactical (www.drdtactical.com) proudly announces the new Paratus rifle, a revolutionary takedown, semi-automatic rifle system in caliber .308/7.62x51mm that can be taken from its hard-case and assembled, without any tools, in less than a minute.

The Paratus features a MIL-STD 1913 Picatinny top rail for mounting optics, a lower fore end rail for handgrips, bipods or lights and additional accessory rails at both the 3 and 9'o clock positions.

Designed for the Clandestine Break-Down Semi-Automatic Rifle (CSR) proposal issued by the military's Joint & Special Operations Program (JSOP), the Paratus ships in a 16"x10"x6" hard case for transport that accommodates the Paratus rifle, two (2) Magpul PMAGS, shooting glasses, ear plugs and more. The case also includes cutouts for an optical sight (not included). It is available in three configurations: Non-suppressed-16, Suppressor capable -16 and SBR-12 suppressor capable (NFA Only Model).

Additional calibers and barrel lengths are in development and testing at this time and will be made available at a later date. With a MSRP of $5,615, the Paratus 16 is currently shipping and available through RSR and Clyde Armory.
