Primary Weapon Systems (PWS) recently announced a new line of Modern Musket direct impingement (DI) rifles. You might recognize the Modern Musket name – Modern Musket is a brand based out of Idaho that promotes a simple message: my rifle is not an assault weapon, it’s a modern musket.
Primary Weapons Systems (PWS) is releasing their first line of Modern Musketâ„¢ direct impingement (DI) rifles June 2014. Known for producing reliable and accurate piston driven AR-15 rifles and a DI accessory line designed to reliably enhance any AR platform, PWSâ€™ next logical step was to supply their customers with the best DI AR-15 rifle available on the market.
The new DI line is called the Modern Musket. The Modern Musketâ„¢ brand (www.modernmusket.com) is a message that PWS embraces. This DI rifle is your defense rifle: your defense of your home, family, and your right to the freedoms outlined in the constitution. These are the guns the 2nd Amendment was written to protect. As technology advances, our right to keep and bear arms must remain the same. The musket was the greatest weapons advance for a citizen at the time of the American Revolution and today, the AR-15 holds that role.
The Modern Musketâ„¢ line is chambered in .223 wylde and available as a 14.5â€ and 16â€ DI rifle and 10.5â€ DI pistol at all participating dealers for $1349 MAP. For a limited time, each rifle and pistol will come equipped with a Lucid HD7 Red Dot optic ($249 value). Stripped DI uppers are also available in 14.5â€ and 16â€ lengths for $699 MAP to turn the rifle you have into the rifle you want.
