While takedown rifles in .22 and even .223 are becoming the norm, DRD Tactical has announced a takedown rife in .308 that is new for 2014 called the M762. A SR25/DPMS patterned lower, the M762 will accept Magpul P-mags. With a less than a minute assembly time, the rifle could become a good option for hikers, or even hunters that might want to carry their rifle stowed on the hike in. Having the option of a .308 takedown rifle would be a major plus for those looking at targets that might take the extra power achieved with the .308 round.
