Desert Tech has seriously upped their already “A” game with the improvements on their new SRS-A2. This line of rifles continues with their bullpup design and adds a couple of other features.For more information, visit Desert Tech
The most noteworthy thing about the SRS-A2 is that the chassis is 2.1 lbs lighter than the SRS-A1 and boasts being 36% more accurate. They managed to drop the weight by removing material from strategic places while maintaining functionality and strength. Weight reduction was done specifically by shortening the Picatinny rail on top of the receiver accompanied by adding fluting to the barrel, receiver as well as the bolt. They also removed some more material on the inner parts of the gun which cannot be noticed from the outside.
One other design change that added to its lighter weight is the switch from a steel barrel nut to a bolted on M-LOK design rail. These new rails are lighter than the older versions as well as more modular. With M-LOK attachment points running the full length of the handguard as well as being every 45 degrees around it.
The trigger is also revamped on the SRS-A2. The new trigger is flat faced and has absolutely zero takeup or over travel. It is not user adjustable for anything other than pull weight, unlike the older model. The pull weight is adjustable from 1.5 to 7.5 pounds.
Desert Tech left nothing out when redesigning by including a 1/4-20 tripod mount location on the forend but left all of the features that you have come to love such as the LOP adjustable buttpad and adjustable cheekpiece. All of this and the SRS-A2 maintains the 1/2 MOA guarantee just the same as it’s predecessor.
The new SRS-A2 chassis line comes in at an MSRP of $2,695 and is currently available for order.
Specs are rather confusing due to the fact that there are two different chassis variations available, the SRS-A2 and the SRS-A2 Covert. The difference between the two being the length of the handguard and the barrel lengths/calibers that it is offered on Desert Tech’s website. However, the handguard is user interchangeable which means that you are not stuck with one length or the other after purchase. Here are the seperate specs for both the covert and the rifle vatiations.
