Dark Storm Industries (DSI) attended SHOT Show’s “Industry Day at the Range,” and they brought along some new goodies for the shooting world to see! They unveiled 3 new AR patterned rifles and pistols in total covering a pretty wide gamut of the caliber spectrum. Let’s take a quick look at each new offering they have for all of us.
dark storm industries (DSI) DS-15 hurricane .224 valkyrie Rifle
The DS-15 Hurricane .224 Valkyrie rifle is pictured in the cover photo above. With this rifle, DSI chose to utilize a 20″ HBAR 416 Stainless Steel barrel coupled with an SS Competition Compensator that makes a huge difference in mitigating recoil. A unique expansion chamber is built into the brake to keep the shooter on target to easily see hits in your optic. Those components paired with a Magpul PRS stock, billet receiver, 3 Lbs trigger, and nickel boron coated bolt-carrier group (BCG) make for a smooth, accurate rifle. The MSRP for this new .224 Valkyrie is $1,899.

The DS-15 Typhoon 5.56 NATO pistol shares similar qualities to its larger rifle brothers. It features an M-LOK forearm, billet lower, ambidextrous controls, and a Hogue Overmolded Grip. Some traits unique to the DS-15 Typhoon pistol are the mil-spec trigger, mil-spec BCG, 4140 Nitride CQB Compensator, and SB Tactical Pistol Brace. The MSRP for this AR-15 pistol is north of $1,000, but not solidified yet.
