At The Range: Doublestar Deer Rifle
February 14, 2015
The Doublestar Deer Rifle is the answer to a lot of deer hunter/AR fans wishes.
The Doublestar Deer Rifle is Doublestar's first dedicated hunting rifle and the industry's first 6.8 SPC hunting rifle -- and for good reason. The 6.8 is the second-most popular cartridge in the AR world and should make for a great deer/antelope cartridge.
Guns & Ammo's Dick Metcalf takes a close look at the Doublestar Deer Rifle in this At The Range segment and finds a hunting rifle with plenty of hunter-friendly features including a free-float aluminum handguard, an ergonomic grip that's ambidextrous, an oversized trigger guard and an extended latch on the charging handle -- perfect for cold-weather hunts while wearing gloves.
It's light and has a 20-inch barrel along with a flash suppressor.
It comes standard with a 5-round magazine and has one of the top factory triggers on the market.
