MK18 Upper Receiver Group
Use what “THEY” use. The Daniel Defense MK18 Upper Receiver Group features the railed forend Daniel Defense currently provides to USSOCOM and a 10.3” Cold Hammer Forged Barrel. The MK18 Rail Interface System (RIS II) features the Bolt-Up System has been rigorously tested prior to fielding by USSOCOM. The 10.3” barrel is the same length in use for the MK18 upper most commonly used for CQB operations. The new independently ambi GRIP-N-RIP Charging Handle accommodates left- and right-handed shooters and is engineered for suppressed fire, with anti-gas features that redirect gas flow upward and away from the face and operator. All Daniel Defense complete upper receiver groups come standard with an M16 profile bolt carrier group.

Best investment yet.I debated for months whether or not it would be worth the price. Absolutely love this upper! Lighter, shorter and tough. I am running the muzzle climb mitigator as well and it is so well built. Made going to the range very exciting.
Top QualityHave been running 16” DDM4 for 12 years and never ever had a single hiccup.
Regarding the 10.3” I had issues with some other manufacturers... but recently got the DD MK18.
Cant be more happy. It is solid built, very reliable system and very accurate. Would not go with anything else then Daniel Defense.
Top tier manufacturer!
By the way it was great to deal with Chris M.
