Townsville, QLD – June 2018 – Huntsman Aus Pty Ltd (Huntsman), a supplier of equipment, services and solutions to Government, announces the delivery of custom Daniel Defense rifles and accessories under a contract to supply an undisclosed State Police Group.

The customised Daniel Defense rifle was selected as the primary rifle replacement for the officers of the police tactical group.

“Huntsman is excited to deliver the custom Daniel Defense rifle to the police tactical group,” Huntsman managing director Rob Woods said.

“We look forward to building a strong partnership with another police jurisdiction as we now proceed to the provision of through-life support.

“The customised rifle variant that was delivered is an impressive rifle.”

“Officers will immediately identify a significant improvement over their previous platform.”

“The delivered rifle represents an optimum balance between maneuverability, reliability and accuracy.”

“The rifle functions flawlessly with a broad range of ammunition, which will provide the group with a degree of future proofing as Law Enforcement ammunition technology continues to develop.”

The customised Daniel Defense rifle is a modular rifle designed on the AR pattern and manufactured with state-of-the-art equipment in the United States.

The rifle is lightweight, while maintaining strength and durability.

The customised rifle features a 10.3″ cold hammer forged barrel, free-float MFR 9.0″ M-Lok handguard with the patented Daniel Defense “bolt up system” which provides an uninterrupted picatinny rail on top, ambidextrous controls and charging handle and telescopic stock.

“We are conscious of the enormous responsibility that the supply of equipment to Law Enforcement represents; especially when that equipment will be employed for the protection of life,” Mr Woods said.

“We are confident that the State Police Group have been supplied a rifle that exceeds their requirements and is the perfect tool for the protection of their officer’s lives and the lives of the community.”
