Limited Series: April 2023 - MK12 Archer

Out of stock
Sorry, this Limited Series rifle is sold out.


When we used the MK12 as the base for our fourth Limited Series rifle build, we took this best-seller to a whole new level. The MK12 Archer features a Steiner T6Xi 2.5-15x50 riflescope, a 15-inch flat-front MFR XL rail, and a Radian Weapons Talon ambidextrous safety selector and Raptor charging handle. We replaced the furniture with a Magpul PRS Lite buttstock and MOE-K2+ pistol grip and gave the whole rifle our unique Rattlecan Cerakote finish that’s never before been used on the MK12. We also added an Atlas BT46-NC PSR Bipod and a 20-round Lancer magazine in “Translucent Smoke.” And, because it’s part of our Limited Series, it comes with a bonus Black on Black Cole-Tac Woobie Bag and Playbook, an upgraded Royal case, and a certificate of authenticity.    

Everything else is pure MK12, from its 18-inch Cold Hammer Forged MK12 Profile barrel to its Rifle length gas system to its Daniel Defense muzzle climb mitigator. And, like all Daniel Defense firearms, it’s backed by our 100% satisfaction guarantee against defects in original materials and workmanship.
