What is more aggressively American than a .308 pistol?

Winchester, Kentucky’s Doublestar has introduced their new STAR10-P braced handgun, which looks just the thing for hog hunting in brush country, and surely will puff fireballs guaranteed to make you night blind for a week.

It has a little too XTREAM! look for my liking, but I am an old fart, so there is that.

Anywhoo, their presser:

The STAR10-P is designed with the power one needs for varmint control or self-defense. Built with the same billet upper and lower as the original STAR10 rifle, the STAR10-P puts that power in a very manageable package. With features like the Strongarm Pistol brace and Stronghold Pistol Grip, the STAR10-P takes AR Pistols to the next level.

The Stronghold Pistol Grip with G10 MLOK panels is a patent-pending innovative design utilizing a lightweight, anodized aluminum frame and customizable textured Stronghold G10 MLOK panels. The palm swell provides a secure but comfortable surface for the shooter’s hand, even in gloves. The high-quality US-made G10 panels round out the package with rugged style. Pair with the Stronghold G10 MLOK panels to ensure the shooter won’t drop his or her weapon when conditions are slippery.

MLOK is a great platform for mounting any accessory while keeping weight down and a low profile on your weapon’s handguard. The problem shooter’s face is what to do with the real estate that’s left uncovered, slick, and swayed by extreme temperatures. DoubleStar has the solution with its Stronghold G10 MLOK Panels. Weighing in at 0.5 ounces per panel with mounting hardware and a length of 3.25 inches, these panels are CNC machined from the highest quality G10 to provide a textured surface on any MLOK handguard.

About laststandonzombieisland

Let me introduce myself. I am a bit of a conflict junkie. I am fascinated by war and warfare, assassination, personal protection and weaponry ranging from spud guns and flame throwers to thermonuclear bombs and Soviet-trained Ebola monkeys. In short, if it’s violent or a tool to create violence it is kind of my thing. I have written a few thousand articles on the dry encyclopedia side for such websites as Guns.com, University of Guns, Outdoor Hub, Tac-44, History Times, Big Game Hunter, Glock Forum, Firearms Talk.com, and Combat Forums; as well as for print publications like England Expects, and Strike First Strike Fast. Several magazines such as Sea Classics, Military Historian and Collector, Mississippi Sportsman and Warship International have carried my pieces. Additionally I am on staff as a naval consultant and writer for Eye Spy Intelligence Magazine. Currently I am working on several book projects including an alternative history novel about the US-German War of 1916, and a biography of Southern gadfly and soldier of fortune Bennett Doty. My first novel, about the coming zombie apocalypse was released in 2012 by Necro Publications and can be found at Amazon.com as was the prequel, Chimera-44. I am currently working on book two of that series: "Pirates of the Zombie Coast." In my day job I am a contractor for the U.S. federal government in what could best be described as the ‘Force Protection’ field. In this I am an NRA-certified firearms, and less-than-lethal combat instructor.
