DRG Now Offering Complete Rifles Designed For Harsh Environments


DRG has just acquired Saltwater Arms and are now manufacturing complete, corrosion-resistant AR-style rifles designed for maritime environments.

Saltwater Arms Rifle Advantages:

  • Utilize stainless steel components.
  • Parts coated in corrosion-resistant material.
  • Made in America using cutting-edge technology.
  • Each product is examined in-house by their quality-control lab.

Based out of Illinois, DRG is a leading U.S. manufacturer of firearm components, primarily for AR-style rifles chambered for 5.56, 9mm and .308. DRG products were already well regarded for their precision manufacturing and high durability, but following their acquisition of Saltwater Arms their catalog just got a lot more interesting. Made to withstand the harsh, corrosive environments commonly found near oceans, the Saltwater Arms-designed rifles now benefit from DRG’s manufacturing process and quality-control facilities.

DRG Manufacturing CEO and avid fisherman Chris Gosell had this to say about the new products:

“We set out to offer distinctive solutions to our customers and choosing to manufacture a new line of fully assembled rifles and pistols seemed to be the natural direction. Saltwater Arms rifles met our high standards and unique “out-of-the-box thinking” and we’re excited to add our expertise to the production. The firearm’s key components are made from stainless steel with highly durable corrosion-resistant coatings to provide users the utmost strength and longevity in the harshest of marine environments as well as worry-free relief for the prepper community.”

They currently have two new rifles for sale with two minor variants of each. Both new rifles are chambered for 5.56, have 16-inch barrels and are available with either 13-inch or 15-inch MLOK handguards. The Barracuda features a Tungsten Cerakote finish and has an MSRP of $1,395.95, while the Blackfin is hard coat anodized black and has an MSRP of $1,049.95.
