Maxim Defense Releases MD-1505

Maxim Defense, the premiere manufacturer in PDW technologies and stock/brace design, is proud to announce the availability of the MD-1505 series. It’s a combination of the extraordinarily popular PDX design and a traditional AR-15 package.

Though similar to the PDX in size and capability, the MD-1505 has MILSPEC forged receivers and different handguards. Additionally, some options include the SCW stock, SCW brace, or SCW pistol system, providing a platform that’s perfect for virtually any intended use.

The MD-1505 is Maxim Defense PDX ingenuity in a standard AR-15 package. It was engineered to bring our top-tier PDX package to an even more affordable price point.

Starting at the muzzle, each MD-1505 is equipped with the patented Maxim HATEBRAKE muzzle device. The HATEBRAKE reduces recoil, decreases flash signature, pushes gasses and concussion wave downrange away from the operator, and improves overall performance in short barrel pistols and rifles.

For increased comfort and versatility, every MD-1505 features our free-floating Slimline Handguard. These handguards provide a monolithic-like upper receiver platform and M-Slot compatibility on five sides. At the rear, the MD-1505S is equipped with our SCW Stock for the ultimate in compactness, comfort, and versatility.
