Snipe Silently – The New Cadex Defense CDX-SS Seven S.T.A.R.S. Covert

In my neck of the woods, long-range shooting and hunting is anywhere between 100 and 200 yards. Owning a 6.5 Creedmoor for use in this area makes as much sense as owning a snubby revolver chambered in .40 S&W for a CCW. But precision and accuracy are of extreme importance whether you are shooting at 50 yards or 1200 yards. Cadex Defense, known for top-shelf long-range rifles, have just announced the CDX-SS Seven S.T.A.R.S. Covert chambered in 300BLK, 223 Remington, 308 Winchester, or 6.5 CM. The 300BLK and .223 versions are available with 11-inch barrels and longer suppressors.

Cadex Defense also just announced a PRO version of their long-range chassis rifle. Details on both can be found below.

Snipe Silently – The New Cadex Defense CDX-SS Seven S.T.A.R.S. Covert

The CDX-SS SEVEN S.T.A.R.S. COVERT is a compact rifle similar to the CDX-R7 CPS. They both achieve the same purpose, which is concealability for short/medium distances target engagement. This new rifle combines an ultra-short 11in fluted barrel with a Covert Slim Titanium Suppressor small enough to fit within the chassis M-LOK fore-end tube. This fore-end tube is shorter than on other Cadex rifles while still maintaining a fully functional 19in Picatinny top rail for optics and night vision device mounting. It features the folding buttstock of the Strike PRO chassis which allows for fast tool-free stock adjustments. Cadex also offers a version equipped with 16.5 in. barrels in order to comply with the 26 in. minimum overall length regulations in many countries.

The product pages for the suppressors aren’t up yet, but here is a preview:
