Very cool gun: DRD Tactical’s new Paratus rifle is a takedown semi-automatic system in .308/7.62x51mm NATO that can be taken from its hard case and assembled without any tools—in less than a minute. In Latin, Semper Paratus means “always prepared” — also the motto of the U.S. Coast Guard.
It is available in three configurations: Non-suppressed-16, Suppressor capable-16 and SBR-12 suppressor capable (NFA Only Model).
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-inch by 10-inch by 6-inch hard case that accommodates the Paratus rifle, two Magpul PMAGS, shooting glasses, ear plugs and cutouts for an optical sight which is not included.
The Paratus features a MIL-STD 1913 Picatinny top rail for mounting optics, a lower forend rail for handgrips, bipods or lights and additional accessory rails at both the 3 and 9′o clock positions.
