DRD Tactical have just announced the Paratus G762 Rifle. This semi-automatic take-down rifle uses 20-round H&K G3 magazines rather than AR-10 magazines. It features a 13-inch QD Picatinny rail, FN hammer-forged 16” barrel, Magpul stock and pistol grip and a custom cut foam hard case for transport when takendown.
In other news, the Cobb County, Georgia, Sheriff’s department’s Tactical Operations Unit have adopted Paratus rifles chambered in 5.56mm and 7.62mm. This allows them to carry the rifles discretely in backpacks and attache cases or in a motorcycle saddle-bag without attracting attention.
