Mid-South Tactical Network (MSTN) has been churning and burning over there, turning out some really sweet AR-15/M16-based custom tactical rifles and carbines (short to medium-range interdiction/sniper rifles and carbines, to be more specific) in 6.8x43mm SPC (6.8mm SPC/6.8 Rem SPC), as well as 5.56x45mm subcarbines utilizing 10.5" LMT (Lewis Machine & Tool) uppers. All the guns are custom-built by MSTN-built by MSTN, and are perfectly geared for use by military Special Operations (SPECOPS) personnel, LE SWAT operators, and private military contractors/operators.
The AR-15/M16-based rifles and carbines utilize Larue Tactical, PRI (Precision Reflex, Inc.), and KAC (Knight’s Armament) forends/1913 Picatinny rail systems, muzzle brakes, and Vltor and NSWC Crane (Crane Division, Naval Surface Warfare Center, Crane, Indiana) telescoping buttstocks (made for SOCOM) . Barrel lengths on the rifles and carbines run between 16" and 18".
