Hello everyone, I picked my MDR late last month, and have finally got the chance to shoot it. Mine came with the new 6 position gas valve, but not the upgraded hammer spring, or extractor. I figured I should add my experience to the discussion here. I am in no way loyal to any manufacturer, and plan to continue to add my experience to this post.

Magazines used were the included magpul pmag, and lancer 20 round mags.

I fired 100 rounds, which were a mix of m80 ball, Winchester white box, and federal 175 GMM. I did not experience any malfunctions. I did however notice my brass was a bit damaged.

Somewhere around 60 rounds fired, I looked down, and saw the captive polymer handguard pin, laying on the bench. I will be contacting Desert Tech for the additional upgrades, and the handguard issue.

I will keep this posted with what I hear back from them, and my continued experience with this rifle.

Great to hear it functioned for you...walking out pins are no fun...seems some still have issues with that...not sure if these pins walking out are from the excessive action MDRs have or not...it will be interesting to see how well scopes hold up with the MDR.

Update: An employee called me today. Asked me to send the barrel, along with the bolt back to them for the extractor upgrade. I will also be sending back the handguard and pin. Decided to not get the hammer spring upgrade, since I have yet to experience any light primer strikes.

I was advised from the warranty dept. receiving the parts, to me getting them back should take approximately 3-4 weeks.

Mine is now at 4 weeks in DT possession. Emailed for an update... nothing. Emailed again.... nothing. The new Warrenty girl, Meagan.... she was great but I think she’s getting slammed with the inflow of trashcan guns. and am out of town. I need a heads up before they ship back. I won’t get one. Oh..... this is the 3rd time the .308 has been back.

That’s the price of being a beta tester.   Hope it works out soon.

same story here, two unanswered emails as of yesterday. I have the feeling they are swamped right now. Megan said she was the only person working warranty, so I can kinda understand her missing a couple emails but not why DT only has one person. I assume the only one working warranty means interfacing with customers and hope they don't have her fixing all the rifles as well.

Im not too concerned about the wait, I just hope my rifle works like its supposed to once I get it back.

DT seems to have a revolving door...which is never good.
