Finally some news on the long-awaited MDR (Micro Dynamic Rifle) bullpup AEG project from Silverback Airsoft!

According to Silverback:

“While the mass production of MDR has started last year, multiple local and international events have made the task considerably longer than expected. Given the current circumstances, we estimate that the MDR AEG will hit the market within 6 to 9 months, but it could be longer if the situation deteriorates in our production areas.

What we can tell you at this stage:

-It will be the latest version of the MDR, the MDR-X, in 7.62mm version.
-Length: 700mm.
-Weight: 2.6KG (with magazine, without battery).
-420mm inner barrel (brass, 6.05mm bore).
-It will be available in Black and FDE.
-It takes G&P/ A&K type SR-25 mags, will be delivered with a polymer 80 rounds midcap.
-The 10mm ball bearings Gearbox is partly proprietary but most V2/V3 gear sets and piston body will be compatible with slight modifications.
-Computerized trigger and motor control, Dean (T-Plug) connectors.
-Battery bay can accommodate Li-Po stick/AK type batteries (7.4V or 11.1V).
-There are plans for MDR-C (compact version), 5.56mm adapters kits, barrels kits, handguards and many other things, but later.

We will make another update end of July to keep you advised on the ETA and other details of the MDR-X.”

If you love a thoroughly modern bullpup, then more on the Silverback MDR replica can be found HERE in their video presentation!

This is definitely a model that certain members of the Airsoft Action team are keen to get “hands on”, so we’ll be taking a look just as soon as we can get one to test… watch this space!
