Patented Technology

What makes DRD rifles unique? Two very innovative technologies that have been patented are the backbone of the various rifles we offer.

Patented Quick Take Down Rifles. The patented quick take down rifle technology is utilized across our entire portfolio of products.  With a unique barrel nut, firearms can be mission ready deployable in just 60 seconds. The quick take down not only offers the benefit of being able to assemble your firearm quickly and easily but it also offers modularity.  Purchased the APTUS® in 5.56mm but want a .300BLK version too? Simply buy the barrel and swap it out and you’re ready to go. With this technology, gone are the days of needing to purchase another complete upper to change calibers.

Patented Internal Recoil System. The patented internal recoil system is currently utilized on the PARATUS® and APTUS® firearm platforms.  This distinctive technology allows the user to fire the weapon with the stock folded. Maintain in the ready in close quarter battle situations with this specialized feature.
