The Variant 1 is built on DSI’s precision-matched 7075 billet receiver set. This matching lightweight receiver set makes the perfect foundation for this firearm. Keeping the shooter in mind, the lightweight design and tight tolerances appeal to the novice and expert alike. The Variant 1 is compatible with all mil-spec AR-15 style parts. The upper receiver has an optic-ready picatinny rail, while the lower receiver has an integrated and enlarged trigger guard and a flare cut magazine well.
