MDR Update 4-30-18

Dear Valued Customers,

308 MDR Production and Shipping

The production ramp up and shipping schedule for the MDR has been consistent over the past few months with MDR’s shipping out nearly every day. Although we have yet to reach our capacity goal we are moving closer to our target every week. We regret that some of you have seen your delivery dates pushed out but are very pleased to see many anxious customers that now have MDR’s in their hands and on the range.  
Making the transition from a low volume Precision Rifle to the high volume MDR has caused us some growing pains as expected. Although we were fully aware and felt prepared for many of the challenges that we would face, we continue to learn from our experiences and are a better company because of it.

223 MDR Status

As we have demonstrated at 2018 Shot Show and various other events, the initial 223 MDR Test Guns are performing exceptionally well.  However, the emphasis from the engineering staff on the MDR production ramp up has constrained our engineering resources, causing the longevity testing to take longer than anticipated.
We are nearly complete with the testing that we expect will ensure an amazing experience for every rifle’s first trip to the range. Upon completion of the testing we will begin Final Production of 223 MDR’s and expect to start shipping in June 2018.

Delivery Dates

 Delivery dates listed on your Desert Tech account will continue to be adjusted to our best estimate at the time. Please note that we are taking a more conservative approach with Delivery Dates for 223 MDR’s. Delivery dates beyond July 2018 are likely to be moved up as the 223 MDR ramp up improves.
We appreciate the patience and support we have received from many of our Customers and we share the frustrations and anxiety with every day that passes.
We want nothing more than to get you on the range with the your MDR.

Sincerely,

Carson Jenkins
Desert Tech,
Director of Marketing  

So .... June. And more than likely, July.  I'm betting they cant the .223 model out the door because they're having too much trouble repairing the .308 models.

Why would they do that?  All doing that would do is invite everyone with no skin in the game to trash them for now good reason, while ignoring the people who have had zero issues with theirs.

KFelt, please go out and have some fun with one or both of those mdr's soon.  Really looking forward to hearing your feedback on them.

I put in for a suppressor in March. I'm betting I have it before .223 MDRs start "ramping up" production.

I'd say September is when we will see the 223 MDRs...

Most likely within the next couple weeks.  My current class on marketing isn't difficult, but the research and workload is backbreaking.  I love the concept of an accelerated degree where you do one class at a time in 5-7 weeks, but damn...the out of class work can be suffocating.

I ordered my MDR directly from DT in early April
my 308 rifle is slated for July 9th delivery and my 5.56 conversion for September 8th
originally my rifle was supposed to arrive July 19th so it moved up 10 days
not sure if those numbers will hold but if they do then they should be getting them out pretty quick now.
