The Del-Ton booth at the 2012 SHOT Show has a reputation for meeting performance with value, and this rifle is no different. At the center of it all, this rifle comes standard with the mil-spec components used in all DTI rifles. The DTI TRX has a 16-inch mid-length CMV chrome lined barrel with 1×9 twist, features a Troy low profile gas block, Troy CQB stock, Troy sights and a Troy Battlemag. What sets this rifle apart from many AR rifles is the incredible Troy Rifle Length Battlerail. With this high quality rail system, the operator can mount any mission specific accessories they require, with little work. The rifle also comes with a hard case, sling, Troy Battlemag and a buttstock cleaning kit. Personalizing your rifle won’t be a problem since this rifle is available in Black or Dark Earth. The free-float barrel features M4 feed ramps and is manganese phosphated. The threaded muzzle has an A2-style flash hider and a mid-length gas system. Chambered in 5.56, the phosphated 8620 steel carrier assembly is incredibly durable. The carrier interior is chrome lined, and DTI attached the carrier key with grade eight screws. In addition, DTI properly staked and sealed the gas key, as if you thought otherwise. The sights on this weapon are particularly cool. It features Troy Front Folding M4 Battle Sights, with 300 and 550-meter settings. The rear sight is a Troy DOA Folding Rear Sight, with 200 and 600-meter apertures. The buttstock is a Troy polymer BattleAx CQB stock with storage, and features a mil-spec buffer tube. The whole thing weighs in a 7.2 pounds empty and measures 35.5 inches fully extended. There are many AR-15s at SHOT Show, but this one definitely stands out in the crowd.

In addition to the TRX rifle, the booth had several upgrade options for your personal build. DTI gives you endless options to customize your gun. One custom rifle featured at Daniel Defense rail system, with a Moe grip and a Magpul buttstock. I really didn’t have too much bad to say about it. DTI continues to offer superior quality parts for the discerning AR connoisseur, and at a reasonable price. Needless to say, I’ve become a fan.
