LAS VEGAS, NV (January 16, 2017) – Dark Storm Industries, LLC, a New York based firearms manufacturer, is proud to introduce its newest offering in our line of Modern Sporting Rifles. Founded in 2013, Dark Storm Industries developed the DSI line of rifles to meet the ever-changing regulatory environment in states like New York and California. The DS-10 is the evolution of our DS-15 series of rifles. The DS-10 will be offered in the venerable .308 Winchester as well as the super-hot 6.5 Creedmoor.
Complete rifles are available in three models to match our already existing DS-15 line. All DS-10 rifles feature billet upper and lower receivers, mil-spec buffer tubes and a mid-length direct impingement gas system. The MOE® model includes an 18” HBAR barrel, Magpul MOE® stock, Magpul MOE® pistol grip and Magpul M-LOK forearm. The Typhoon adds a billet ambidextrous safety, tactical charging handle, Hogue® rubberized grip, Magpul CTR® and 15” DSI ultra-light free-float M-LOK handguard.
Both the MOE® and Typhoon, feature nitride barrels for extended barrel life and sub-MOA accuracy. The Lightning model features a Troy Industries Alpha® 15” Battle Rail, upgrades the barrel to 416-Stainless steel and the bolt carrier group to one that has been Nickel-Boron coated. All three models are available in three distinct configurations to offer a solution regardless of where you may live. Those living in free states, can enjoy our standard configuration with a detachable 20 round Magpul PMAG®. The DS-10 featureless rifle is designed for those looking for a detachable magazine rifle in a state like California or New York. This configuration includes a non-threaded barrel, 10 round Magpul PMAG® and Thordsen FRS (Fixed Rifle Stock). The DS-10 fixed magazine rifles utilize our patented FX series lower receiver which consists of a non-detachable, yet serviceable, magazine to comply with state prohibitions on rifles with certain features with a detachable magazine such as California, New York, Connecticut, and Massachusetts.
MSRP for the DS-10 is $1195.00 – $1545.00 depending on model, color, and caliber. Trigger upgrades are offered on all our DS-10 and DS-15 rifles, the 4LB Drop-In trigger is priced at $100 as an upgrade to any rifle. (normal MSRP $169.95)
Dark Storm Industries will have a variety of DS-10, DS-15 and DS-9 rifles on display at Shot Show booth # 8507 as well as available for test firing at Industry Day at the Range in lane LR12.
