Fulton Armory is an established name in the world of match-grade service rifles. Along with their existing line of M-14 rifles, they just announced a Black Hawk DMR tribute model. It is not a clone but is optimized for urban DMR use.
Military Rifles @ TFB:
The standard Black Hawk DMR includes a 22-inch Criterion National Match barrel. Various other National Match parts including the trigger and gas piston are included. The stock is a fiberglass model with an added Kydex cheek riser. Fulton Armory guarantees 1.5 MOA groups with Federal Gold Medal Match ammo.
The Black Hawk DMR retails for $3,739.95, but some options are available at added cost. Some of the upgrade options include parts from Smith Enterprises, Inc. and Sadlak Industries. The Black Hawk DMR is available for order now directly from Fulton Armory.
From The Manufacturer:
Randy Shughart was a United States Army Delta Force soldier who participated in Operation Restore Hope in Somalia in 1993. During the operation, Shughart and his team were tasked with protecting a downed Black Hawk helicopter and its crew.
As the situation became more dire, Shughart, armed with his M14 rifle, requested permission to engage the enemy on the ground. Despite being outnumbered and outgunned, Shughart valiantly fought off enemy forces and saved the lives of several of his fellow soldiers.
Sadly, Shughart ultimately lost his life in the battle, but his heroism and bravery have continued to inspire military personnel and firearms enthusiasts alike.
In honor of Randy Shughart’s legacy, Fulton Armory has developed our own iteration of the famous Shughart M14. Crafted with high-quality parts and designed to replicate the look and feel of the original rifle. More than just a “clone” our tribute M14 Black Hawk DMR is exactly how we would assemble a Delta Force rifle used during an urban mission to protect a downed Black Hawk helicopter and its crew.
