Battle Arms Development: Rocking Full Auto with the Tanker and Paratrooper SBRs

    For this episode, we took a trip to the folks at Battle Arms Development in Las Vegas and were able to get our hands on some of the companies newest rifle entries that were premiered at SHOT this year. The Tanker and the Paratrooper is sort of the manifestation of Battle Arms in the company entering the full rifle market from the parts manufacturing business. They also have a lightweight piece, a .308 rifle, but these aren’t covered as much in the episode above.

    Shooting these full auto SBRs was seriously a blast of a time. Due to the proprietary buffer and spring that the company has developed, the rifles are extremely controllable on full auto, despite being in .300 BLK. We were also about to get our hands on one of their 5.56x45mm variants, which was unfairly easy to control with the rock’n’roll switch engaged.

    But apart from the actual functionality, the rifles are extremely aesthetically appealing to the eye and even to the touch with the French walnut grips. You can tell Battle Arms puts a lot of effort into making these SBRs unique in many respects.
