So I’m aware that ES Tactical sells a barrel, but I really don’t want to drop an extra $850 on top of a $2500 Rifle.  So I would like to know what people think the odds are that DT will themselves sell an MDR in 6.5 CM.

I want an AR-10 in 6.5 CM but have been disheartened by the extremely high prices if I want anything remotely “lite”, the difficulty of gettin an 18” barrel, and the rather large size of it.  So then I thought about an MDR.  The weight is in the rear making it better, shorter and easier to handle, plus if the price stays around the same as the .308 then it is about $900 cheaper than a V Seven rifle.

This is all naturally how impressed I am when I get my MDR in 5.56.  Any thoughts?

Thanks!

I doubt that they will sell a factory 6.5 CM barrel anytime in the near future.

If you want a high end, precision semi auto 6.5 CM, then the MDR isn't for you. It's a novelty rifle worth $999 not $2500.

jreffner, I sure that if you contact a DT salesman directly (like Ryan Mark Wells), they will sell you everything for the .308 MDR except the barrel. That way you can buy a 6.5 CM barrel from ES Tactical and not have to buy a .308 barrel.

In 6.5?  Doubtful if ever.  They've implied that there aren't plans to sell a factory .300BO - just the conversion kit, so I don't see where 6.5 would be treated different.
