  1. Another DD masterpiece
    Overall
    60%
    To make it simple it’s def the a top shelf AR-15 but in my opinion LWRC makes a better buy at this price. But this is still a great weapon and should be lauded for it’s excellence.
    The price makes you second guess yourself knowing at almost the same price a LWRC is fully Ambidextrous and feels like step up from the DD rifles and pistols. Still a fine fine weapon

  2. Awesome. Recommend to anyone
    Overall
    100%
    I have several DD rifles among others. DD is definitely the best on the market. I started with a V11 Pro and still use it for three gun and range fun. I got an M4A1 and really love it. I like the RIS2 hand guard. The pinned 14.5 barrel was easier to maneuver than the 18 inch and a lot lighter. That being said I thought if 14.5 is good then 10.3 has to be better. I purchased my MK18 and love it. Had to get a tax stamp but who cares. The MK18 lost a little velocity but for what the 5.56 cartridge is I don’t think it makes a difference out to 300. I have used the rifle for home defense, a truck gun, side by side companion, and have even smacked a few coyotes. Forget the cost. If you want the best you have to shell out the cash. Same goes with optics. I have seen some awesome rifles with junk optics, that just doesn’t make since. I have also seen guys running Cheep rifles with very expensive optics. Match your equipment. The MK18 is awesome suppressed.

  3. The Perfect Rifle
    Overall

    Bought one of these with the Geissele trigger upgrade, and muzzle brake upgrade. Couldn't be any happier with what I got. Zeroed at 50 yards in only a few shots and the rifle gets a bunch of attention from everyone at the range. Would definitely recommend for everyone. The quality for this thing is top notch. 10/10

  4. Well worth the money
    Overall
    100%
    I will start off by saying the trigger is not match but will function in any environment. I would be disappointed it DD ran a match trigger in the mk18. I have many Ar s and most have a ton of upgrades. This setup, I will leave as is as I know it will function in any condition s. Yes this is well worth the money. I have many other Range toys but this along with mDD 18 inch are my serious get anything done weapons. So as the last reviewer complained about not having all the fancy stuff that could possibly cost u a malfunction when you really don’t want it. I wouldn’t want anything different in the mk18. The fit and finish is great. And most importantly it runs and you can trust that it will for years.
    If I had to grab one it would be this do all weapon. If I had one more it would be my b&t apc9k. Just my 2 cents.
    I would highly recommend to anyone looking for not just a 700 dollar range gun.

  5. Love It

    finally got my hands on a MK18 from my local shop and I love it. It ran great, trigger felt really good. On my first trip to the range with it not a single issue with sighting my new optics for it, feeding or firing. It's compact enough to minimize profiling in tight quarters. I'm looking forward to many good times at the range with this new addition to my safe

    I just purchased one of these because well why not! So for $2200 buck I’m very disappointed first off no sights! BCG isn’t coated and the trigger is terrible! Something I’d expect in a $700 rifle! Yeah the price is sure as hell not worth just being able to say you own a MK18
