DRD Tactical Paratus P762 Gen-2 & U762 Upper

DRD Tactical has updated their branding. Their Generation 2 takedown 7.62mm rifle (pictured above)  will be called the Paratus P762 Gen-2. I am not sure what the changes are, but I can see that the handguard design has been changed and the receiver is slightly different. From the press release …

DRD Tactical announces release of Gen-2 Paratus P762 Rifle. A revolutionary takedown, semi-automatic rifle system in caliber 7.62 Nato, that can be assembled out of the hard-case without any tools, in less than a minute.

Gen-2 Paratus has a 16” or 18” FN Hammer Forged chrome lined 7.62 Nato chambered barrel with 1/12 twist and Parkerized finish, Folding charging handle, New 13” Rail, QD sling mounts machined on either side of the lower receiver and Nickel Boron coated Bolt carrier group. New Hard-case has room for the attachment of brakes, flash hiders and QD mounts for suppressor use (NFA Item). All Gen-2 P762 Rifles are suppressor use ready, no need for adjustable gas blocks due its rifle length gas system.

The Paratus features a MIL-STD 1913 Picatinny top rail for mounting optics, a lower fore end rail for handgrips, bipods or lights and additional accessory rails at both the 3 and 9’o clock positions.

Paratus ships in a 18”x14”x7” hard case for transport that accommodates the Paratus rifle, 4 Magpul PMAGS, Trijicon size Optic and Suppressor.

      If this becomes socially problematic for you, just have a peek at the MSRP, and you can be assured of instant flaccidity.
