Daywalkers new PDW

Hey Gents,

Been a while since I posted, figured this is a good opportunity. Just got my new toy, a Maxim PDX 7.62x39 kit. Got it put together on a 17 designs lower I had in the box, Maxim sends everything but a lower and a LPK in their kit. Finished it off with a Strike Industries LPK. 

This thing is a bad Mofo, and absolutely built like a tank. 5.5 in barrel finished off with their “Hatebrake” linear comp/muzzle booster. I have no idea how they get such a short gas system to work, but they do. It’s got a proprietary BCG and buffer tube, which is how they get it so short, the buffer actually sits in the back of the BCG. This fuker is only 18.75 inches long when compressed.

 

I’ve attached pictures for reference. The top is a standard 16in Daniel Defense carbine, middle is a cheap 10.5 build made for throwing around the desert. This damn thing is smaller even with the brace fully extended than the 10.5 is compressed.

 

You can get it in 5.56, but I figured that’s sub optimal out of such a short barrel. 300blk is another option, but that’s pricey, and I don’t plan to suppress it. I figured 7.62x39 will stack pack some ass coming out of short ass barrel. Certainly not optimal energy, but way better than a pistol would be. 

I threw a Primary Arms red dot on there temporarily, not sure what I’m gonna put on permanently. I consider this a real SHTF type weapon, I’ve seen some videos of being able to fit this, plus a small chest rig, in a standard backpack. Nice grey man style stuff if the need ever arises.

DAMN, BROTHER!!!!    That thing is HAWT!!!!   You've done very well - now bring it down here so I can shoot the fucker!   :laffs::thefinger:

Oh I will for sure, it needs a good desert beating to test reliability. According to the web, it eats steel case or brass. I plan to just beat some steel thru it and see how it does, keep some brass for the mags. 
 

It’s a sexy little bitch, I’m really pleased with it. Uses HK416 spec rails, so that gives an idea how durable it feels. Even being as small as it is, still feels comfortable to move. I believe it comes from the same Socom request that produced the Sig Rattler, something that is tiny and can be used in vehicles during covert ops.
