I am looking for feedback for the above rifle, has anybody used one?  What was your thoughts?

I quite like the idea of a tactical rifle in a bullpup design, the DTA looks good and has got some very good reviews, I think bullpups are like marmite.  Keppeler make very good target rifles but I can not find any info apart from the manufacturers website on the interweb, I spoke to Fox Firearms the importer and they spoke highly of the rifle but I suppose they would :D

I think Vince has had one on test (Gun Pimp)

 

 

The Kepplers ive seen shoot very well, I dont like the mag position on the sniper rifles personally.

Thanks Ronin,

 

I can't get my head around the magazine port because the sling attaches to either side so if the magazine is not sticking in your back the bolt is.

I did shoot the tactical Keppeler Brian Fox has on sale  - with the angled magazine.  If I remember, it was pretty good - half MOA at 100 yards.

Thanks for the feedback Vince.

 

The Keppeler I imagaine being german is built to exact tolerances and would be very accurate, but the DTA SRS looks good, breaks down in to a case easily and by all accounts shoots very well, but I have always wanted a keppeler, i think i will have to have a look at both in the flesh before commiting, and try and have a shoot if possible.
