Achieve Precision Long-Range Accuracy with WATCHTOWER Firearm’s Type 10 SPEC OPS Rifle

SPRING, TX (Feb. 13, 2024) — WATCHTOWER, a veteran-owned firearm manufacturing company that’s redefining the firearms landscape through innovation, precision, and customer satisfaction, is now offering its best-in-class Type 10 SPEC OPS rifle at a new, lower price.

The Type 10 is a WATCHTOWER Firearms SPEC OPS platform for long-range precision shooting. The Type 10 is based on the DPMS high-profile pattern and manufactured from high-grade 7075-T6511 billet aluminum. WATCHTOWER has upgraded the fire control group by incorporating Hiperfire’s EDT2 Heavy Gunner trigger — a single-stage semi-auto LE/SWAT AR upgrade. The TYPE 10 includes WATCHTOWER’s Tru-Black PVD coated 7.62x51mm NATO MPI-tested Durabolt BCG — our most robust, durable, and easy-to-clean coating. The barrel is a stainless steel 18-inch .308 Win. with 1:8 rifling featuring a mid-length gas system finished in a black nitride coating. Surrounding the barrel is the 15-inch S7M free-floating handguard with M-LOK attachment slots at five positions, 4 QD points, and a full-length 1913 Picatinny rail. WATCHTOWER’s Dragon Slay-AR compensating muzzle brake is incorporated at the end of the barrel, a device to mitigate recoil, finished in a Tru-black PVD coating. This rifle also comes with B5 Systems reinforced polymer pistol grip and buttstock.

Initially carrying an MSRP of $1,649.99, it is now available for $1,402.49 – a 15 percent savings.

“Our SPEC OPS platforms are built to give shooters precision accuracy in an MSR-designed firearm that is as reliable as the sunrise,” said WATCHTOWER CEO Jason Colosky, a former Recon Marine serving throughout Southwest Asia and Southeast Africa. “The Type 10 is chambered in .308 Win and will serve long-range shooters competing at a high level, law enforcement personnel, and even hunters, over decades of use in all climatic conditions.”
