Doublestar’s “Beast”

So the Beast gets its name because the owner of Doublestar shot a monster of an alligator with the first gun—a ’gator so big that they called it the “Beast,” or so I’m told by Doublestar’s Director of Marketing and dear friend, Monica Sipp.

She explained that despite the formidable name, the Beast is actually a pretty nimble and shootable .308. There’s something “magical” about the checkered balance point at the front of the mag well.

Feature-wise, this billet gun has a Bullseye muzzle brake, 18-inch stainless steel barrel, 15-inch Evolution handguard, CMC 3 ½-pound trigger, Hogue grip, Gunfighter charging handle, fully adjustable Hammer stock and takes DPMS-type magazines.

“We wanted to offer a smooth-shooting .308 that was not entry level,” explains Sipp.
