James & Hop vs. The CDR (a "Budget" WWSD Rifle)

James Reeves
by James Reeves

In this episode of TFBTV, James and Hop Reeves take on the CDR Rifle, a collaborative effort made by KE Arms, Karl Kasarda and Ian McCollum of InRangeTV and Forgotten Weapons and Brownells, Inc.

The CDR is pitched as a “budget” version of the WWSD (What Would Stoner Do) rifle, an ultra-lightweight AR-15. At just 5 pounds, the WWSD is a featherweight carbine, but the price is heavy at $1,700. The CDR is a less expensive (and less-featured) version – how does it stack up against James, Hop, and the flagship WWSD model? Check the vid to see.

    Pro-tip for the math-challenged lawyer: you can stop subtracting bullet diameter if you just measure from the outer edge of one hole, to the inner edge of the other.

    Groups are measured center-to-center, and edge-to-edge works out exactly the same.
