I'm planning my next build - Mk 12 Mod 1 SPR

I'm evaluating whether to use KAC FF or DD FF..... any comments?

Which one do you think I should go with?

PRI, w/ARMS full-length rail.

Bill: That's Mod 0, isn't it? ...... That is certainly a real nice setup... yet... a little more pricy....

And at this point, I want a full rail HG... that's why I wanna get a Mod 1.

I think what Bill is stating is to go with the MK12 Mod 0... That is what I chose for my next 6.8 build....PRI (original mfg of the MK12 Mod 0):D

But to answer your question: KAC!!!

Yeah.... KAC is the "original".... but DD12.0 is way more "available"....

By the way... whose barrel is on the "original"?

I'll be going with the OPS INC muzzle brake... so... CA-gripless is possible too...

Barrel: A 18 in (457 mm) threaded-muzzle match-grade free floating stainless steel heavy barrel with a 1:7 in (178 mm) rifle twist ratio. The barrels have a special contour to maximize accuracy and minimize weight; they are manufactured by Douglas Barrels. An OPS Inc. muzzle brake and collar (to align the OPS Inc. 12th Model Suppressor) is installed with the barrel. These barrels were designed to take advantage of the new 77 grain (5 g) Mk 262 cartridge that is now being fielded.

Douglas Barrels.... probably *hard* to find.... I may just go with WOA's SPR barrel.... OR "Compass Lake"?

It is a Douglas barrel blank turned and chambered by Gene Barnett, and you're not likely going to find it, but WOA or CLE can turn the correct profile, I'm pretty sure.
