New Rifle Model from DTI!

In keeping with the Del-Ton tradition of performance meeting value, DTI is now offering a new AR 15 configuration with some of the most sought after parts and features for this platform.  At its core, the new DTI TRX rifle has the standard mil-spec parts used in all DTI rifles. The barrel is a 16” mid-length heavy profile, chrome moly vanadium barrel with a chrome lined bore and chamber.  The bolt is constructed of carpenter 158 steel and the bolt has been high pressure tested and magnetic particle inspected.  The bolt’s carrier and key have a chrome lined interior and the carrier key is properly staked and sealed to ensure reliable function.
It is the external accessories that really set the TRX model apart from a standard AR 15 rifle.  Included on this weapon is a Troy Industries Battle Ax stock and a Troy Extreme TRX 13” handguard covering a Troy low profile gas block.  The TRX handguard is a free float tube style with detachable mil spec 1913 picatinny rail sections that are able to be mounted on the handguard for any required mission specific accessories.  This lightweight and comfortable handguard has an extra rear picatinny rail “bridge” that meets up with the rail of the upper receiver and provides a continuous, uninterrupted rail on top.  The Troy Battle Ax stock offers a very comfortable and repeatable cheek-weld and has a significant space for storage via its buttplate.  Also included on the rifle is the Troy DOA/STD flip up rear sight and HK/M4 folding front sight, as well as a Troy BattleMag magazine.  The rear sight has both short and long range apertures (0-300m/500m), and their design offers incredibly fast target acquisition.
This configuration offers the benefit of a compact 16” barrel, but it has a mid-length gas system which can be more gentle in cycling as it uses lower pressures to function than a carbine-length system.  The over the gas block handguard and iron sight positions also offer a much longer sight radius than what is usually found on 16” barrels. The DTI TRX has a very manageable weight at 6.8 lbs. unloaded.  With the butt stock collapsed, the weapon is only 33” long; fully extended, it reaches just under 37”.   The rifle is planned to be offered in both a black and dark earth configuration.              

This exciting new weapon will  be available from DTI via distributors and dealers throughout our nation.
