The Desert Tech Stealth Recon Scout is a bolt-action sniper rifle of American origin. It can chamber 4 different cartridges and was unveiled at the 2008 SHOT show.

Design Details[edit | edit source]

The Stealth Recon Scout is special for the fact that it is one of the few bolt-action bullpup sniper rifles. Due to its bullpup design, the Scout is very compact, and is claimed to be 11 inches shorter than conventional rifles. The bullpup layout forces the magazine and bolt behind the pistol grip, causing the rifle to be heavier near the stock.

The Scout was designed around the .338 Lapua Magnum cartridge, although it is available in three other cartridges (.243 Winchester, .308 Winchester, .300 Winchester Magnum.) The cartridges can be changed with a quick conversion. The .338 uses a 5 round box magazine, while the .300 uses a 6 round box and the .243 and .308 use 7 round box magazines. The Scout has a 26 inch match-fluted free-floating barrel. It is said to have half an MOA of accuracy. It uses a 1-6 pound trigger. The rifle is constructed of polymer, aluminum, and steel. The handguard and upper receiver use a Picatinny rail system.

Variants[edit | edit source]

The Desert Tech HTI (Hard Target Interdiction) is an anti-materiel variant using military calibers, based on the SRS-A1.

The SRS-A1 is the current production version of the SRS. The SRS Covert is essentially the same weapon, with the exception of a much shorter receiver length.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The SRS is considered the flagship rifle of Desert Tech's product line.
