If you’re looking for a jaw dropping AR-style rifle in a big boy caliber, you just found it. No matter your mission, the Kivaari® can do the job. Long range accuracy, ballistics, you name it, the .338 Lapua has you covered. Did we mention it’s a takedown design also?

This is the most covert semi-automatic gas operated long distance rifle around and uses DRD’s patented quick take down rifle technology. That’s not all it offers either. Measuring in at an OAL of 47 inches, you might not think that the Kivaari® embodies discreet – what DRD is known for – but we’ve eliminated the need for bulky long gun cases. Compact portability is fundamental to our brand; if you can’t carry it discreetly in the field then it’s not a DRD rifle. The Kivaari® can go from box-to-built in less than 60 seconds and is a sub MOA powerhouse chambered in .338 Lapua Magnum.

If you’re not quite convinced yet, the Kivaari® features an ambidextrous safety & bolt catch, arrives in either a compact hard case or discreet backpack, and comes in one of three finishes. Constructed from aluminum, you can take your pick from Black hard coat type III anodizing, NIB Battleworn® or FDE Cerakote – at least this is one choice in life where you know you’ll come out on top.
