The Next Generation of Tomorrow’s Weapons

The SRS-A1 Chassis from Desert Tactical Arms

You guys have been patient long enough. At long last, Desert Tactical Arms has announced their newest iteration of the SRS rifle system that you love so much.

The SRS-A1 Rifle Chassis continues to build upon core SRS components and functionality to improve the overall shooting experience.

Specifically, the A1’s features include:

  • Adjustable Cheek Piece-Easily obtain optimal cheek weld with the new fully adjustable rubber molded cheek piece. Simply loosen 2 hex screws at the rear of the stock and adjust to your desired height. Even if you opt to keep the cheekpiece flush with the stock, the added cushion of the cheekpiece will keep you smiling.
  • SRSButtpadandCheekPieceTool-less Buttpad Spacer System-Adjusting the length of pull just got easier. Our proprietary new buttpad spacer system makes adjusting the length of pull quick and painless. Modular spacers snap securely in place using the same attachment system as an ordinary camcorder battery.
  • Cushioned Butt Pad-Engineered to absorb even more recoil, the SRS-A1’s new cushioned buttpad adds maximum comfort without sacrificing an ounce of ergonomics or performance. Additionally, the non-slip surface of the new molded buttpad increases overall position stability.
  • NewForegripStreamlined Modular Rail System-The A1 is lighter and more ergonomic than ever.  Rails on the bottom and sides of the forearm have been eliminated leaving a smooth modular rail system which allows you to position picatinny sections only where needed.  The top rail continues to extend the entire length of the forearm.


We are really excited about the release of the A1 chassis, and have already received great initial feedback. The SRS-A1 Chassis is scheduled to begin shipping in March.

      Is it possible to have an airsoft version of this beast ? (with the two barrels(long for sniping and short for battlefield or CQB) pieces would be even more the best rifle for all tactical situations)

    Any chance that we might be able to upgrade our earlier rifles?

    Very nice! Now, I’m glad that I waited to get an SRS. Can the SRS-A1 be pre-ordered? Just got a NightForce NXS 3.5-15X-56mm and it needs a home.

    Small but very subtle improvements. They are really refining and perfecting what I think is one, if not hands down the best, modular SWS on the market! They did it right!!

    I just watched the 3,080 yard video & that was impressive – now I learn you improved the system with the SRS-A1. There is a 1,300 yard range about 5 minutes away so I’m working for extra to get this babe (even tho that seems to be short range for DTA). Keep up the good work & hope to get it this year. Steve

      Thanks Steve-this was an incredible day of shooting! (although freezing cold) The A-1 chassis DOES have some significant improvements although the core internals are still the same. Thanks again for the kind words.

    Just order mine in 22″ 308 on 02/28/13 after I was able to shoot a Gen II. Great ergonomics and easily 0.5 MOA at 100 yds. Extremely light recoil. I could’ve shot all day, but good match ammo precious at the present time. Can’t wait to get the call that it is in. Should be a few months.
