A short-barreled rifle can be an extremely valuable tactical asset. Of course, dealing with the NFA paperwork associated with a really short rifle can sometimes cause a headache. If you want to order a rifle that is just long enough to avoid this paperwork but still short enough to use for tactical purposes, then you should consider the PWS MK214 Piston 308 Win / 7.62 NATO 14.5″ Pinned FSC Rifle.
The core of this gun revolves around its 14.5” barrel and free-floating rail design, which allows for accuracy out to 700 meters and an ergonomic grip profile that makes it easy to use. Utilizing a long-stroke piston system rather than a traditional direct impingement option, it allows for the best possible cycling. This model also features a pinned FSC30 muzzle device, which goes a long way to reducing felt recoil and improving accuracy of the weapon. Alongside the enhanced buffer tube, users will notice a great amount of control over the rifle and find that they can shoot more accurately with every shot.
If you are looking for a 308 that will perform in the field for tactical purposes, then this should be at the top of your list.
