ICON1 of 3 DD rifles I own. For such a short barrel it’s a tack driver. I run a ta31 on mine and it feels right at home on it. Always get people wanting to shoot it. Such a iconic rifle.
Got this upper through BrownellsBought this upper with my tax return, absolutely love it and also my first DD product ever. This upper sold me for life, next gun or build I do will be Daniel Defense and I'm gonna do the M4A1 next. Most accurate barrel you could ask for, you truly get what you pay for...
Boy do I feel specialI picked up the MK18 Pistol, outfitted it with a Eotech holographic sight and a 3 x magnifier and a weapon light with a pressure pad. This weapon is tact sharp, I love it! Thanks to my wife for loving me that much lol
