 Press Releases

  • Indianapolis, IN (April 2019) - Dark Storm Industries LLC, a leading New York-based firearms manufacturer, moves the marker by introducing the Variant 1. Founded in 2012, Dark Storm Industries developed the DSI line of rifles to meet the ever-changing regulatory environment in states like New York, Massachusetts, Connecticut, and California. The Variant 1 is offered as a rifle, an SBR, and a pistol, chambered in 5.56 NATO, and available in configurations for all 50 states.

    The Variant 1 is built on a precision machined 7075 billet receiver set. The additional tooling required for such a beautiful design, naturally reduces its overall weight, making it the perfect foundation for this firearm. Keeping the shooter in mind, the lightweight design and tight tolerances appeal to the novice and expert alike. The Variant 1 is compatible with all mil-spec AR-15 style parts and is designed to be out-of-the-box ready and reliable  for both competition and combat.

    The upper receiver has an optic-ready picatinny rail, while the lower receiver has an integrated and enlarged trigger guard and a flare cut magazine well.
    The Variant 1 features ambidextrous controls, a 16” threaded nitride barrel and competition compensator, an ultralight, free floating M-Lok forearm, a Magpul CTR Stock and a Hogue® over molded rubber pistol grip, which offers all the comfort of a rubber over molding, but with the durability of a fiberglass core. The no-slip grip with palm swells and finger grooves allow the user to have a comfortable, but positive, grip in any environmental condition.


    MSRP for the Variant 1 is $1695.00.
