Desert Tech’s Micro Dynamic Rifle, or MDR, which has teased watchers for several years, is expected to begin shipping in a matter of months. The advanced-design, American-made bullpup adapts quickly from .223 Rem. to .300 Blackout to .308 Win. by way of optional conversion kits. At little more than 26" in length and 8 lbs., the MDR offers a compact form factor, and its easily reversible ejection and suppressor-enclosing handguard make it a standout even within the offbeat realm of bullpups. deserttech.com
