digital camera (Model #: DSC-P150).
When we published our breaking story on the MagPul Personal Defense Rifle (PDR) Personal Defense Weapon (PDW)-type 5.56x45mm NATO (5.56mm NATO)/.223 Rem. bullpup SBR (Short Barreled Rifle)/subcarbine in May, we forgot to add the photo provided below. This is somewhat ironic since it’s really the best photo we shot, since it shows shows the entire weapon mock-up (non-functional prototype mockup), unobscured by any body parts. So, we just added the photo to that previous article, and we’ve also provided it for you here. We shot the photo below at the MagPul booth at NDIA Small Arms Symposium 2007. In other words, we shot it during the same photo session as the other photos shown (previous article).
As you can see, the MagPul PDR PDW will be extremely compact for a 5.56 weapon–especially one with a 10.5"-12.5" barrel (polygonal rifling, by the way)–if/when it’s fully developed.
