Going Little for the Big Ending: Leviathan Ragnarok
Yesterday we showed you the new Springfield Saint Victor Pistol in .308, a compact little AR 10 pistol with a 10.3 in. barrel. That’s pretty short, especially for a 30-caliber gun. Today we’re going to go even shorter. Today we’re going to show you the Leviathan Defense (LevDef) Leviathan Ragnarok AR pistol — you know, the 5.56mm AR pistol with the 4.5 in. barrel.
Is it practical? Most people would say no, but does it have to be?
The pragmatism – or not — of purchasing a gun like this is entirely up to the buyer. You can debate that – or not — in the comments.
Among its various features are a moderately flared magwell with a textured front face (for those who might prefer a magwell grip when shooting) and a 7 in. M-LOK compatible winged handguard with an overall length of about 7.5 in. to the end of the muzzle brake. There are Pic rails with relief cuts up top, an ambi fire control group, extended charging handle, extended mag release, and dimpled takedown and pivot pins. It’s built to LevDef specification by DRG Manufacturing, in the guise of White Label Armory.
Scroll down for a couple of videos about the weapon by Sootch00 and Mr. Colion Noir.
