Desert Tech Micro Dynamic Rifle - 7.62x51mm NATO. This is a pre-production select-fire model with 3D printed furnishings first shown in 2014: the current version has charging handles on both sides rather than a single reversible one, a flat-faced trigger, and a redesigned ejection port which is less raised and has a dust cover.

The Desert Tech Micro Dynamic Rifle (MDR) series are a family of gas-operated bullpup rifles produced by US-based Desert Tech Inc. Features include a patented forward ejection system allowing for easy shooting from the off-hand shoulder (a common problem in conventionally ejecting bullpups) and with the action easily reversed for left-handed shooters by simply switching over the two ejection port covers (one is the forward ejection port, the other a flat cover that includes part of the extraction mechanism), fully ambidextrous controls (with a reversible charging handle on the original prototypes changed to an MP5-style locking charging handle on each side in current models) and quick conversion to multiple calibers by swapping out a small number of parts. The rifle uses a trigger bar that pulls on the sear rather than pushing on it, resulting in a trigger pull akin to a conventional rifle.

After a somewhat tortured 3-year development following the first announcement, MDR pre-orders by civilian buyers in the United States began to be fulfilled in August of 2017, starting with the .308 Winchester variant. A compact version (MDR-C) with built-in foregrip is also being worked on.

Military and LE versions feature semi and automatic modes; the civilian version is semi-only.
