The AMP Technical Services DSR-1 rifle is currently being billed by its manufacturer as "the most sophisticated and technologically advanced tactical precision rifle in the world." One of its key designers is a Mr. K. G. Kirnstaetter, who was also responsible for the design of Erma’s SR-100 rifle.
In fact, the DSR-1 is the next generation and evolution of Erma’s SR-100. Now no longer produced, the SR-100 was known to be extremely accurate: giving sub 0.20 MOA groups (sub 0.20" at 100 yards). Also like its predecessor, the DSR-1 offers complete interchangeability between calibers. Unlike its forebearer, the DSR-1 utilizes a bullpup design to enhance portability and save space.
According to AMP, the operator can change calibers within seconds by changing the bolt and the barrel. AMP also states that "no accuracy is lost, no matter how many times the barrel or bolt are changed." The DSR-1 has caliber conversion kits available for .308, .300 Win Mag, and .338 Lapua Mag.
The DSR-1 is currently being imported and distributed here in the U.S. by CQB Products of Tustin, California.
