Magpul PTS PDR-C Review

Magpul_PTS_PDR-C_Airsoft_GunThe Magpul PTS PDR-C is one of the hottest topics in airsoft. When it first was unveiled by PTS at the SHOT Show, airsofters immediately started asking for it, saving for the day it would finally come out. It took Magpul PTS over two years, but the airsoft version of the PDR is finally available.

To most, the look of the PDR-C is reminiscent of the P90, mostly due to the compact shape of the grip. However, the PDR uses M4 or STANAG magazines, making it more versatile than the P90 (not to mention magazines are easier to buy and easier to carry). Externally, the Magpul PDR is a simple design.

Magpul PTS PDR and New Updcoming Products

The airsoft world has been waiting for the Magpul PTS PDR for years. With a completed prototype at SHOT Show 2012, we hoped it would be available this year.

Fortunately for the meantime, Magpul PTS has been working on a flurry of licensing agreements, and has lined up a number of other products for us to drool over. I contacted Magpul PTS, and while they couldn’t give me a Magpul PDR AEG update, they did confirm a couple of other really interesting tidbits. Continue reading

MAGPUL PTS PDR Airsoft Rifle SHOT Show Photos

The Magpul PTS PDR has been one of the most anticipated airsoft projects since it was revealed in early development at the 2011 SHOT Show.
