    Desert Tactical Arms .308s in 16" and 22" barrels. These are modular weapon systems that are guaranteed sub-moa and allow the user to swap caliber in minutes.

    The Stealth Recon Scout (SRS) is available in 7 calibers currently, between .243 Win-.338 Lapua. With a 16" barrel, the SRS is 26" overall.

    and removing the spacers allows the bolt to be replaced before changing barrels.

    Wow. Price tag best not mentioned on most of those...more than I make in 6 months probably. I do like that SRS.

    I want to say it's $4,000 for the rifle, and $1,100 for each conversion. A conversion is a new barrel, bolt, and magazine.

    It looks pretty impressive to me.

    Yeah, I've had 2 of them come through here. The triggers on the ones I saw were great, the whole rifle was really impressive.

    They're talked about a lot on SnipersHide.Com and held in very high esteem, right up near other factory guns like AI AW, Sako TRG, etc. Accuracy is apparently down around 0.5 MOA with good ammo.

    The DTA is a good rifle, though it has some quirks. A talented shooter used this one to win high .308 at the Steel Safari last year (with our .338 can on the end)
