DRD Tactical Switch Barrel System
While some people want to build multiple uppers, with the cost of quality optics and other components, a switch barrel upper offers considerable advantages especially on the LR308 with caliber options ranging from 243 Winchester, 257 Souper, 260 Remington, 6.5 Creedmoor, 6.5×47 Lapua and 7mm-08 to 308 Winchester, 338 Federal and the 45 RAPTOR. Think about it… One Rifle with a 308 Winchester barrel for general use and quick change to a 6.5 Creedmoor barrel for long range and to a 45 RAPTOR barrel for BIG BORE impact.
If you want a true multi-caliber system, check out DRD Tactical’s SRU762 quick change system that lets you swap barrels in 2 minutes. Each barrel is kept with its own gas block & tube, barrel nut and muzzle device so you can see how cost effective it is compared to building complete uppers having to purchase a separate upper receiver, optics, hand guard and any accessories you have mounted to the hand guard. Mounts to a DPMS LR308 lower or you can get a complete rifle kit.

45 RAPTOR REVOLVER!
TK CUSTOM, located in East / Central Illinois, has announced that they will modify SMITH & WESSON X-FRAME 460 S&W MAGNUM revolvers to shoot 45 RAPTOR ammunition. You only need to send them the cylinder and they will modify it and provide 10 moon clips for $200 including shipping back to you. Turnaround time would be 2 weeks or less.
In speaking the TK Custom, the modified 460 SW X-Fram will shoot any 45 ACP based rimless cartridge including the 45 ACP, 45 WIN MAG, 45 SUPER, 460 ROWLAND, 45 DETONICS and 45 RAPTOR. In addition, it will still retain the ability to shoot rimmed cartridges like the 45 Long COLT, 454 Casull and 460 SMITH & WESSON MAGNUM.
In addition to having a semi-auto hunting rifle in 45 RAPTOR, now you can have a sidearm that not only shoots identical ammunition, but is expanded in capability to shoot a total of nine (9) different cartridges.
