Picked up my SRS last night



  • I am very pleased with the quality of service and time frame on this build. I got the call that the rifle was ready to ship exactly two weeks after primal rights received payment. I haven't had a chance to shoot it yet, but I will post results when I have.

    It is a Desert Tech SRS-A1 with a 22.5" TS customs mid weight (heavier than dta) barrel and a 5-25 Tangent theta.

  • We love building those ODG/BLK setups. They are just so nice!

    Let me know if there is anything else you need!


  • administrators

    ODG is by far my favorite looking setup for those Desert Techs

    Look forward to seeing how it shoots for you.

  • Nothing like the smell of burnt varget in the morning.

    I finally got out to shoot the rifle this morning. I shot 20 rounds and plan to shoot a set of 30 tomorrow.

    In the first 20 rounds of breakin, my best group was 0.975". I threw one shot or it would have been right at 0.600". The accuracy potential is there as I have not done any load development at all and suspect that the groups will tighten up then. There was also about a 15mph semi cross wind.

    Oh...and btw...that group was at 300 yards!

  • That, sir, is impressive. :smile:

  • @dddoo7 That is some fine shooting there to be sure. :)

    Nothing makes me happier than seeing our hardware go into the hands of folks that can really wring it out. I wouldn't be surprised if you are posting some even tighter groups as that barrel gets run in a bit and you get some good load development on it.

    I look forward to seeing your progress!



  • Wow, that is some amazing shooting.

    How did it feel? As I remember this is your first SRS and you haven't been around Bullpup rifle.



  • I really believe that bolt cycling is more natural than a conventional rifle. I dry fired it a couple hundred times before taking it out...but it wasn't a problem to get used to it.

    Also...it doesn't sling the brass like a Remington. It has plenty of power to eject them, but doesn't throw them two benches down. Kinda nice having a little pile of brass neatly laid on the mat next to the rifle.

    I'll use this next time someone asks me. ;)

    Everyone swears it will be a problem, and they don't believe me when I tell them it's actually more natural than a regular rifle.



  • I can vouch for that. The DTA feels very natural to cycle the bolt. After a few shots it gets really comfortable. It's also the most balanced rifle I've ever run.

  • @dddoo7 Beautiful shooting sir! Glad to see it hammering for you!
    Those OD/Black combos do turn out sharp.

    You do excellent work. I foresee more TS customs barrels in my future!
