Falkor Defense introduced the new I.R.S.S. (Intermediate Range Sniper System) in .308. Did I mention that it was a suppressed SBR? With a 13.5″ Dracos StraightJacket steel barrel and Dead Air Sandman-S” suppressor, the I.R.S.S. is reaching out and touching the bad guys at 800m.
Further, the I.R.S.S. features a FALKOR “Fatty” Free-Float 15.6″ MLOK Handguard, FALKOR High Pressure Nitride BCG, Ambi Mirrored Controls, Ambi FALKOR MACH 10 Charging Handle, MFT Battlelink Utility Stock, Hogue Rubber Overmold Grip, a Geissele SSA-E 2-Stage Trigger and 20 Round Lancer Mag.
Falkor Defense, formerly known as SI-Defense, has been extremely busy over the past year with a ton of new products.
The one product that really stands out in a crowd is the Falkor Defense PETRA .300 Win Mag AR. The PETRA comes in two slight variations with either a 20″ Carbon Fiber Proof Research Barrel (MSRP around $5800) or a Stainless Steel Barrel (MSRP around $4800). The PETRA uses a proprietary magazine for the system.
The Falkor Defense Mantis is a currently-in-production bipod that allows the user to pivot the bipod in multiple directions and lock it in place. There are also additional accessory “feet” that can replace the standard “feet”, such as a spike, that is easily replaced.
The Falkor Defense Blast Cap is currently available in 5.56, with .308 in the works. The Blast Cap is a muzzle device that screws onto the barrel itself and the gasses are pushed forward and will deflect sound away from the operator as well. The Blast Cap will be available in multiple colors and will MSRP for around $270.
The Falkor Defense Optimus PDW Stock will fit on any standard AR-15 platform and includes a buffer and spring and will work with any stock BCG. The Optimus will fold out to full carbine stock length. The MSRP has yet to be determined.
Falkor Defense also has three new rail systems, the Transition, the Breacher and the Fatty.
The Transition Rail is more rigid and free floating and consists of a transition ring, a barrel nut and the rail itself. This is truly a secure system. The Transition is currently only available in M-LOK in both 5.56 and .308 DPMS High Profile variations with three lengths for each variation and up to 19″ for the .308 version. The MSRP has yet to be determined.
The Breacher Rail, which is only available in .308 M-LOK, includes a “heat sync” barrel nut to assist in dispersing heat away from the chamber. The Breacher features a linear “saw-tooth-like” surface on the front of the rail to assist with barrel work. There is a QD mount at the 6 o’clock position of the front of the rail and two QD mounts on the rear of the rail at the 3 and 9 o’clock positions. There will be three lengths that have yet to be finalized and the MSRP has yet to be set.
Lastly, the Fatty Rail features a girthy, yet comfortable diameter that will accommodate most suppressors and three lengths that, though ranging from approximately 7.5″ to approximately 15.5″ are yet to be determined. The Fatty will be available for both .308 and 5.56mm AR platforms.
