Maxim Joins SR-25 Game with New MD:11 Rifle Series
Minnesota-based Maxim Defense this week announced a new series of rifles complete with PROOF barrels and Gisselle triggers: the MD:11
The new MD:11 is a Direct impingement AR-10 style rifle offered in 6.5 Creedmoor or .308 Winchester, with all models using an 18-inch PROOF Research carbon-fiber or stainless-steel barrel set in billet 7075-T6 receivers with a floating 15.5-inch M-LOK slotted handguard. The lightweight barrel helps keep weight down to the 9-pound range. Other standard features are a carbine buffer system, B5 SOPMOD stock, ambi surface controls, and Gisselle SSA-E trigger. The MD:11 will be offered in urban, arid, and black schemes.
Maxim says the MD:11 was initially designed for USSOCOM requirements. However, once the decision was made to commercialize the SOCOM requirement (within limits), 6.5 Creedmoor and .308 Winchester were deemed the best calibers.
