Dark Storm IndustriesOakdale, N.Y. ( –Dark Storm Industries (DSI), a New York-based firearms manufacturer, may have gotten its start filling a void for sourcing and selling quality AR parts years ago, but soon found an under-served niche in manufacturing AR-style rifles for states with the most restrictive firearms ownership laws: California, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Maryland, Washington D.C. and their own home state of New York.

Besides building standard AR style rifle models, DSI produces fixed magazine and what they call “featureless” models for the most restrictive states, thus ensuring responsible firearms enthusiasts can legally own an outstanding American-made rifle for sport or protection. The featureless models may not have a pistol grip or adjustable stock, but what they don’t lack is performance. The DSI Featureless DS-10 Typhoon in 6.5 Creedmoor is another example of DSI’s business philosophy to bring superior firearms design and production to responsible citizens in all 50 states.

The DS-10 Typhoon Featureless is a mid-length direct impingement gas system AR style rifle built from a DS-10 billet 7075 aluminum lower receiver and a DS-10 billet upper with a forward assist and ejection port cover.  The lower is machined to work with the Thordsen FRS-15 rifle stock without the need for an adapter or spacer. The FRS stock was designed to address the restrictive laws in several states that characterize pistol grips and adjustable stocks as features of “assault rifles.” It replaces the adjustable stock and pistol grip with a super ergonomic stock that still gives the user a solid stock “feel” in shouldering with a rubber buttpad, checkered grip and multiple sling hard points. It comes with the Thordsen enhanced buffer tube cover which features QD sling sockets on both sides.

More DSI built features include a charging handle with an extended latch for improved grip, a DSI billet ambidextrous 90-degree safety selector and DS-10 nitride bolt carrier group. Additionally, the featureless Typhoon sports the DSI 15-inch Ultralight Narrow Profile M-Lok handguard Cerakoted in either black, FDE or ODG and ready to accept a variety of lights, scopes or laser options, as the DS-10 does not come with sights.

Although the featureless DS-10 Typhoon 6.5 Creedmoor was intentionally designed for the California and New York customer, many gun enthusiasts would find the unique stock just as comfortable as a traditional stock for hunting or tactical purposes. Dark Storm Industries also produces the Typhoon 6.5 Creedmoor in a fixed magazine version and a standard rifle version.

    To each his own, i cant stand old wooden rifle stocks and happen to think the thorsden stock is a very nice looking stock. I own two ARs, one with Thorsden, one with traditional grip and like them about equally. Im more concerned about reliability and accuracy. Not too much info out there in the DSI rifles

    On most long guns I am with you, altho my main hunting rifle is a stainless steel plastic stock Marlin 981, just due to the possibility of swimming with the damn thing. handguns on the other hand, while I love the old revolvers in wood and beautiful blue steel I carry a polymer Stainless 9mm. The things just work


    Ugly and the grip sucks
