Later this year DoubleStar will be introducing a .308/7.62mm NATO chambered AR-style rifle to the market. The below photos are of a prototype. The prototype is so new that it was not available to DobleStar’s SHOT Show staff when they were setting up the booth. It arrived during the SHOT Show week. The booth staff were not able to tell me how much it will cost or when it will go on sale.

It features DoubleStar’s new AR-10-style lower with a patterned magwell grip. I liked the grip, and it looks badass, but I think gloves would be mandatory if doing a lot of shooting.

The designer of the rifle. Unfortunately I can’t find where I wrote down his name.
This is the Trijicon 6x machine gun scope used by the British Army on their AR-10 rifles.
