They responded to my question! Not sure why that felt so cool. For my anonymity I wont disclose which question. Good information though and Desert Tech seems to have a better strategy for how they are going to disclose information. SRS A2 seem like its going to be a winner, they'll be taking orders and shipping at SHOT.

They also touched on mine as well.  I thought that the presentation was good, perhaps the best thing to come out of it is that they now realize that they both have the right and the ability to remain silent when it comes to discussing new products.

Ah, well that discovery will go nicely with their "right and ability" to endlessly lie and cheat customers.

The SRS-A2 looks like a fantastic evolution from the A1. Overall, those are all great improvements and impressive weight saves especially when you consider the 338 LM conversion. One thing that I wish they did was to make it possible to remove the pistol grip for aftermarket support. Personally, the grip is alright.

While I'm bummed that the A2 handguard isn't compatible on the A1, I understand why. I may just have to bubba my A1 hanguad down to the Covert length.

Wonder if the m-lock tabs interfere with swapping barrels. Handguard looks fairly slim and the SRS barrel shank is fairly large.

It mounts completely differently than the A1.

Lightened it up as much as I could before it got grainy. Looks like an SRS with some sort of high speed rail.

Yes, the rail mount is completely different than the A1.

blackandwhiteknight, did you miss the announcement? It is the SRS-A2. The A2 covert is 8#.

Yes it does. That was part of the discussion of the effect of modern production techniques for lightweight barrels. I had linked to their test on Full30, but it wouldn’t play for TNC. So I linked the same video on YouTube.

Sorry if I gave the impression it was to something else.

I know that.

What I'm wondering is if any m-lock attachments you install have to be removed to be able to switch barrels. The barrel shanks are pretty large and that rail is fairly slim

Heckman, thanks for relinking that vid...very informative.  They seem to verify what we've been seeing in slimmer, modern hunting and sporting barrels that are manufactured to a decent level of quality.

Shoot...those results in their test are even better than I would have anticipated.
