    Finally, after almost 11 months and almost $6K, my MK12 Mod 0 build is complete!

    A few years ago, I fired a friend's AR which had been modified for (relative) precision, and I knew I wanted something similar. I did a lot of research, and came to the conclusion that the Mk12 Mod 0 is really the pinnacle of precision ARs, and ultimately right for me.

    Cool. The red dot looks funny on top of this build. Do you ever use it?

    This. Very nice build but for $6k that thing better shoot 1/4 MOA at 600 yards lol.

    I never weighed it lol

    I'm obviously not a super marksman, but I've been landing 10/10 hits on an 8 inch plate at 150 yards in about 10 seconds.

    Yep. Its zeroed at 20 yards.

    MK12s with 18" Douglas barrels are typically 1/2 MOA, which is not bad. As I said, the lower is pre-ban, so that adds a nice chunk to the price tag, especially considering it had never been fired or even taken out of the plastic.
