The Desert Tech HTI (Hard Target Interdiction) is the shortest, lightest, and most versatile magazine-fed ELR (extended long range) precision rifle system in the world. It is over 10lbs lighter and nearly a foot shorter than the Barrett M107. The HTI can be easily adapted to individual application requirements by changing the rifle's caliber and length. Whether a military sniper is disabling an enemy vehicle with the 50BMG conversion or a civilian ELR shooter is engaging a steel plate at 2,400yds, the HTI offers unrivaled flexibility.
If you can see it, you can hit it. That is our motto for the HTI. Accuracy and precision at distances that boggle the mind. This is the only truly switch-cartridge ELR rifle that we have ever seen which can truly produce repeatable results. Big bore rifles are very expensive and feeding them is inherently costly. Too many times we hear of people getting big bore rifles that look the part, but can not shoot well. The HTI is in a league of its own in the accuracy department. Several of our customers have used their HTI to set the range records for distance and accuracy at places like the NRA Whittington Center and many other local clubs across the country.
In less than 60 seconds, a shooter can change from 375CT to 50BMG or several other cartridges including some very powerful wildcats in between, and maintain half-MOA accuracy between conversions. Each barrel repeats to its independent barrel zero to within a half-MOA. Often, it is even better than that! With the addition of a Tangent Theta rifle scope, a shooter can have an entire cartridge conversion complete, and have the turret on the optic re-zeroed and the zero stop set in less than one minute. Desert Tech rifles are truly in a class all their own.
Due to its compact bullpup design, the DT HTI is about a foot shorter than all traditional big bore rifles with an equal barrel length. In addition to the drastically shorter overall length, the large diameter and heavy barrel shank that is usually far in front of the rifle grip, is moved to the rear and centered over the grip. As a result, the handling characteristics of the HTI are unsurpassed by any other big bore precision rifle system.
The DT HTI is built around the core fundamentals of precision rifle accuracy, and was designed to allow each individual shooter to fit the rifle perfectly to their body type. The trigger shoe is independently adjustable to ensure proper 90-degree trigger finger placement while still allowing a full purchase on the rifle grip. The adjustable cheek ensures you will have the perfect cheek weld regardless of the dimensions of your head or the optics you've chosen. The integral monopod provides a rock-solid rear support which is completely out of the way when not in use.
Due to its unique barrel clamp system, the HTI is one of the most accurate and forgiving rifle systems in the world. There is no action-to-stock interface. The action is the stock, so there is no bedding or v-block stock and action mating to worry about. The HTI has the most rigid and uncompromising barrel-to-shooter interface that exists. In addition, there is nearly 7 inches of the barrel supported by the chassis. That is nearly 5.5 inches more barrel support than exists on most traditional big bore rifles. Over five inches less barrel free-floating means 5.5 inches less barrel to vibrate. This leads to the HTI being one of the most forgiving rifles in existence from a barrel harmonics standpoint and is evidenced by the extreme precision and accuracy exhibited by these rifles.

Do you want a custom barrel?
We have partnered with one of the most talented precision rifle smiths in the country to produce our custom barrels for Desert Tech rifles. Travis Stevens at TS Customs in Miller, SD personifies attention to detail and a steadfast dedication to customer service, which makes him a perfect fit for Primal Rights, and for our customers. Together, we have more experience with non-factory cartridges and wildcats in the Desert Tech rifles than any other outfit in existence.
Barrel length, twist, contour, chambering, muzzle thread spec, fluting style, color, etc. The options are nearly limitless. We will work with you to identify the best possible cartridge choice and barrel configuration for whatever application you desire. Want a custom brake fit and finished to your barrel as one? No problem. Want your QD brake for your suppressor professionally installed and timed? No problem.
We can chamber nearly any cartridge in existence in our custom barrels. The only requisite is that it fit one of the 3 available bolt faces. Obviously it's nice when cartridges will feed from the magazine effectively, but we have done special conversions for people using rounds that could only be single-fed.
You can expect 1/4MOA accuracy or better from our custom barrels. Most customers send test targets back to us that measure in the 0's and .1's to .2's. This isn't some fluke either. This is what we expect from every single one of them. We do load development, zeroing, or other work on several dozen customer barrels each year. Forget cloverleafs. True one-hole groups are the norm after a load has been tuned to these barrels. We have several customers using them in benchrest competitions, and winning!
No matter your application, we have the experience and technical knowledge to help you make your custom Desert Tech rifle a reality.

The HTI magazines are proprietary Desert Tech components. They are not AI, McMillan, or any other footprint, and only work with DT rifles. They are designed with a shoulder retention feature which prohibits recoil from damaging bullet tips. Their internal dimensions are very long to allow the use of long VLD-style bullets.

If you have a 375CT conversion, and want to shoot 408CT, or anything else off a 375CT bolt face, you do not need another entire conversion. You can just get a barrel which you can use your existing bolt and magazine with.
Factory DT barrels and TS Customs barrels built to your exact specifications are both available individually.
If you shoot out your factory barrel or custom barrel, we can re-barrel your current barrel extension and save you a good chunk of money!
