Am I retarded

Desert tech wants 5k for this, I've been fanboying over it for years now but putting it off because I thought the price was too high, am I moronic if I finally cave in and get one of these?

    If they made an SRS that took 5.56 STANAG'S I'd buy it

    I got to shoot one, it's pretty cool but for that much dosh I'm be tempted to scrape together another $3-odd-k for a Barrett.

    A bullpup bolt action might be the most moronic thing I've ever seen.
    It does make me wonder why you couldn't use a rod with a cam on it to retain the bolt action design while making it pump action too.

      Anyone who has used a straight pull rotating bolt rifle would know why this is a bad idea.
      In the event of an overpressure round making it difficult to open the bolt you have more leverage with a traditional bolt rather than relying on a cam track to torque the bolt open.

        >less leverage
        True enough but you wouldn't even have to get ride of the bolt lever, just have it stick out through the cam.

    If you can afford that, you can afford a superior rifle.
    Don’t fall for the desert tech hype and assume a hefty price tag equates to quality.

    I have one, it's pretty good.

    Stream of consciousness posting about it:
    It's light for what it is and it's extremely accurate. With a 22" 6.5 creedmoor barrel I was making hits out to 1k pretty easily (with help from a Kestrel). Anything inside 600 is ez.

    The bolt isn't as awkward as it looks. However, it's not as smooth as the other premium bolt actions out there. I don't give a frick about that, because it's shorter than my 14.5" barreled AR, and works fine. Mags are kind of hard to load, since they need to work with everything from 308 all the way up to 338. MKmachining makes a single feed sled to insert into the magwell that works great. You can also get full length arca rails for the bottom mlok slots. I only have the one barrel system for it currently, but I'll get more in the future.

    If you order, go with Special Purpose Rifles out of Utah. They're very helpful, offer some custom barrel options, and the price was good.

      +1 for Special Purpose Rifles. Rob is a solid dude and had ODG as a color option on my HTI.. Haven't shot an SRS but I do plan on getting one down the link eventually. As much as Desert Tech is a bunch of mountain israelites, I do think their bolt guns are worth what they charge. Supposedly they are redoing the mags for some calibers to fix the absolute dogshit followers they have in them which is exciting.

        ODG bros. What caliber is your HTI?

        I haven't heard that about the mags, glad I didn't buy a shitload of them then.

        Also yeah, although the MDR QC is allegedly somewhat iffy, the SRS seems to be fine.

          .50 due to cost, all the other rounds are moronic expensive and i don't reload lmao, i can eat 7.50 a shot for Hornady amax but .375/.408/.416 are too rich for my blood.

            HELL yeah. I have access to a mile range here, so I'll probably get the 338 conversion or something in that tier.

            fyi if you're shooting inside 500yd, the covert might be cool in 308

              If I get one its going to be in 300 norma, Gonna get the barrels through ES tactical. One thing i love about the HTI/SRS is the cheap custom barrels and their availability.

                can you downsize to some of the magnum calibers the SRS can do with a custom barrel?

                I know someone makes a .223 barrel/mag for the SRS at least.

                Not unless someone starts making custom bolts unfortunately. I'm limited to .50bmg boltface/.408 boltface.

            its beautiful

            No, you and I are both in the same position. I was holding off to see if they made any revisions at Shot Show but nope. I loved shooting it. Yeah it's a real premium for the compactness but performs as advertised.

            what caliber are you going for?

              300wm. Decent balance imo between a decent amount more oomph then 308 and taking advantage of the form, but still ultra widely and cheaply (for a magnum) available off the shelf, or when I want to reload enormous cheap bullet selection. I don't live in an area with enough range to really ever take advantage of the super high BC options other calibers have. I can use my existing good 30 cal cans too.

              Of course as other anons say part of the point is how ultra easy swapping caliber is, when I got to try one I tried that too and it was just as damn quick as all the reviews say. So not like I'm locked in. I do sort of regret not just grabbing the receiver during one of the very rare sales though. My fault for getting hyped on "what if they change it" when it turned out that was the MDR.

    Youre basically me... I think they're neat and have heard good things about em (kinda hard to tell because most reviews are sponser/provided the gun).

    I'd say it depends on what kind of ranges/shooting you have access to. If you have a 500+ rifle range at your disposal, then I think it'd be a cool purchase. For me, 300 yards (with the occasional 400-500 yard shot at a match) is about as far as I've been able to go - so if I were to splurge it'd be on something like an atlas.

    really need to consider the carbon fiber/steel barrel options, though flutes are so aesthetic
