Long-range precision shooting has gained popularity over the last several years. One of the major limitations of the sport is that not all shooters have access to 1,000-yard ranges. Some shooters only have access to a range where they can only shoot out to 200 yards or less. Accuracy and precision are paramount whether you are shooting at 50 yards or 1,000 yards. Cadex Defense has designed a chassis to address the needs of both types of shooters. Cadex Defense is proud to announce the CDX-SS Seven S.T.A.R.S. Covert chambered in 300BLK, 223 Remington, 308 Winchester, or 6.5 CM. The .300 Blackout and .223 are available in 11.5” barrels with longer suppressors.

Below, is the product description for the CDX-SS Seven S.T.A.R.S. Covert and Pro.

Product Description

The CDX-SS SEVEN S.T.A.R.S. COVERT is a compact rifle similar to the CDX-R7 CPS. They both achieve the same purpose, which is concealability for short/medium distances target engagement. This new rifle combines an ultra-short 11in fluted barrel with a Covert Slim Titanium Suppressor small enough to fit within the chassis M-LOK fore-end tube. This fore-end tube is shorter than on other Cadex rifles while still maintaining a fully functional 19in Picatinny top rail for optics and night vision device mounting. It features the folding buttstock of the Strike PRO chassis which allows for fast tool-free stock adjustments. Cadex also offers a version equipped with 16.5 in. barrels in order to comply with the 26 in. minimum overall length regulations in many countries.
