Well worth the moneyI 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.
Love Itfinally 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
Mk18 awesome!Purchased this and will never run another AR platform besides this. Any idiot who complains about anything on the mark 18 has no clue wat they r talking about ..one of the best rifles on the market..if not thee best
Love itBought this rifle for patrol. Best purchase I’ve ever made. Good quality parts. Easy to use for clearing buildings and for training.
Lot of dough for not enough breadI 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
