New for 2019: Dark Storm Industries 50-State-Legal AR-15

posted on April 27, 2019
One of the many innovative designs seen at the 2019 NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits was this unique design from Dark Storm Industries: the DS-15 Typhoon.Though it looks like a standard AR-15, this rifle is constructed in such a way to make it legal for ownership in all 50 states, since it doesn't meet the definition of prohibited firearms in states like New York, California, Connecticut, Massachusetts and New Jersey.

The key to the Dark Storm DS-15 Typhoon's configuration comes in its construction, which installs a permanently attached magazine into the magazine well. However, thanks to the company's other features, reloading is a cinch. Check out more in our video above.
