Upgraded DS1913.2 test firing!— Vinh Nguyen 凯文荣阮 (@nguyenkvvn) March 31, 2023
More of a formality tbh as this shares a common baseline with the PRM-9 and Perun lower, which both are more intense than .22.

DS1913 v2.0 AR15 Tech Specs
Vinh made a large number of updates for the 2.0 version of the DS1913.2.
These include reintroducing the takedown detent system, eliminating a “friction fit” of the receivers, takedown standoffs (thanks to Hoffman for this idea), and tweaking magazine fitment.
It also rebases the foundation away from the Disruptive Solutions model (self-described as untested) to the AR-15 CAD and Technical Data package available from The Gatalog.
While this model retains the DS1913 name, v2.0 is considered a successor to the DS1913 v1.2, rather than an update.
