My first build I put together a while back. 18" Stag 3g barrel, stag upper and nickel boron bcg ARMS riser, AGL rail and brake, Primary arms 4-14 scope, and geissele super dynamic enhanced trigger. Sweet shooter!
Thats a nice rifle, What kind of accuracy are getting out of it?
Thanks! I haven’t really worked up a load specifically for it yet, but with most 55gr fmj’s it’ll do 1.5" and get easy hits out to 600 on a 10" plate. I have 100 77gr SMK’s and 69gr SMK’s ready to load once I move into my new place next week and get to set up a reloading bench and all that finally. Its a 1:8 barrel, so I’m betting the heavier pills will shrink groups way down.
Thank you sir!
Don’t need anything caliber wise to large around here in my neck of the woods.
Beautiful Yugo Brother!
I have added a bipod and a muzzle brake also…My custom built AR-15, DEZ Arms match grade barrel that is sub MOA with my hand loads. Best shot to date 550 yards on a prairie dog. AR-Optics 3-9x40 scope
Mossberg 5.56, 20" free floated barrel, tapco grip/trigger guard, cmc trigger, Nikon m223 bdc 600 3-12×44mm scope, Blackhawk 1" rings with rail to mount the Bushnell first strike auto brightening reflex sight, BCM gun fighter charge handle, Troy sling, & Harris 24"bipod. Bdc good out to 600 yrs & have taken ground hogs @ 600. Very accurate & reliable.@jf89
Only have one now (since converting my M1A back to its original configuration).
Right after I built it.
One of our squad shots from a PRS DMR shoot.
Fresh after its initial paint job.
Liberty range at PNTC. Day 2 of a DMR match. Targets ranged between 425 to 670 yards.
Usual load out for one of the matches.
Some informal practice time, uphill hitting a 4 inch plate at 225.
My M1A when I still had it set up as a DMR. If I remember properly this was at 125 yards shooting from kneeling and sitting. Really liked that set up for awhile but heavy as hell and tuning a M1A for accuracy can really turn into a money pit. But it did bring back some good memories of Afghanistan.
Careful going the precision rifle route. It’s very addicting.

Original military 20 round magazine I’ve had since my first issue M16, LOL.
My favorite dmr
And it’s silent too
Considering it’s concealable size, did you register with tha ATF?
I thought DMRs used full powered rounds like .308 and SPRs were the lighter rounds like 5.56?
My bad for kind of stsrting another thread on a similar topic. I didnt know we grouped 5.56 rifles in with DMR, I appreciate all the help in thst thread though.
The MK12 series is a military DMR. yes the original term was SPR (Special Purpose Receiver, later coined as Special Purpose Rifle) but the role is what we consider for the designated marksman. SOCOM issued these in various configurations (mod 0, mod 1, mod H) and some made it down to regular units.
Military 5.56 in 77 grain OTM was developed to provide a round that would range past the traditional expected effective ranges of regular issue 5.56 (62 and 55 grain) while proving better accuracy and better terminal performance.
I had the opportunity to use a M14 my first Afghan tour and while I liked the better punch at longer ranges over our 5.56 green tip, even with optics it was still a 3-4 MOA rifle. M-80 ball was the standard issue round and precision accurate it is not. Not to mention our M14s are pretty well worn.
Supporting a couple of ODAs during my times deployed gave me the opportunity to get my hands on a real MK12 for some range time. Hands down a better platform that the M14s we had.
My last tour in Iraq I used a issue M4 with optics and 77 OTM in a DMR role for the team I led. Performed quite well out to 400-450 meters with only sixteen inch barrel.
Folks need to remember that a DM with a DMR is not a sniper. The whole role of a DMR is to cover those intermediate ranges and when the need arises provide heavy volumes of fire in close engagements. For the MK12 that of course meant a ruined barrel once the fun switch was flipped (many MK12s had the full auto feature as they were built on A-1 lowers) but a ruined barrel is better than being dead, LOL.
Hope that clarifies this. Don’t get overly wrapped up in the caliber.
Good to know, thanks for clearing that up.
Common guys and gals show off your DMR rifles!
