Random Range Day Revelations

We came across a few revelations while at Range Day that we do not have any photos to properly represent the information provided. However, we thought they were interesting nonetheless. 
  • Kel-Tec confirmed the RDB and M43 Bullpup Rifles are the same internally with aesthetic differences. They were not on hand to be shot as they are currently in prototype form, so don't expect them to be popping up very soon. Initial calibers should be 5.56/.223 and 6.5 Grendel followed by 7.62x39. You can expect multiple caliber offerings for each of the rifles.
  • TrackingPoint is utilizing Daniel Defense Rifles with modifications including the buttstock for their AR Series. They should start seeing them in testing by March. They are still working out some final design tweaks to provide the best overall rifle
  • The Remington R51 was not on hand despite the company making an appearance.
  • Aimpoint does not have any new product offerings.
  • Youtube appears to add 10 inches for some folks.
