The DRD Aptus uses the same patented internal recoil and take down technology from the original Paratus rifle. Chambered in 5.56 NATO and .300BlackOut, the Aptus uses a patented internal recoil system which eliminates the need for a standard buffer tube and spring assembly found on AR-style rifles. This feature allows for a side folding stock while retaining normal operation of the firearm.
The quick change barrel can be done in less than 60 seconds without the need for tools. This take down system allows for compact and discreet portability. Constructed from US billet aluminum and finished in a NIB battleworn US Flag finish, this rifle showcases custom details and outstanding quality. Uses an ambidextrous safety bolt catch and non-reciprocating charging handle.
