DRD Tactical Paratus Clandestine Take-Down Rifle

DRD Tactical’s new Paratus is a semi-automatic take-down .308 Win. rifle designed to meet the military’s Clandestine Break-Down Semi-Automatic Rifle (CSR) proposal specifications. When broken down it fits inside an attaché case and can be assembled and ready to fire in under 60 seconds as demonstrated in the video below.
The rifle appears to be based on the AR-10 design with a return spring integrated into the upper receiver and a charging handle on the left side. Other than the charging handle, the controls are the same as an AR-10/AR-15.
