The shooting sports are popular than ever these. AR manufacturers have solidly responded with a host of new guns aimed solidly toward the hands of 3-gun shooters. This is good news for shooting enthusiasts of all faiths; the more popularity enjoyed by the shooting sports, the less pressure we’ll feel from the gun grabbers. However, there is more to shooting than just knocking down steel plates and punching holes in paper. Long before 3-gun took the stage, shooters were letting the air out of coyotes and launching prairie dogs.
Varmint hunting can often present a variety of challenges that must be met. Whether it’s knocking down a long-range shot or tracking a moving target, speed and accuracy reign supreme. To meet these challenges, CMMG has introduced the Mk4 V and Mk4 V2, both chambered in 5.56x45mm.
Both the Mk4 V and Mk4 V2 are equipped with a 24-inch fluted 416 stainless steel barrel designed to extract the utmost performance out of each round. The fluting on the barrel not only reduces the weight but also allows the barrel to dissipate heat more rapidly and therefore cool down faster.
Another feature of Mk4 V and Mk4 V2 rifles is the inclusion of CMMG’s RKM14 KeyMod hand guard, which offers three primary advantages:
- Reduced Weight – Material is removed from the hand guard where the KeyMod slots are located making it lighter than traditional quad-rail hand guards.
- Slimmer Profile – The absence of rails from the sides of the hand guard create a thinner profile that is easier for the average shooter to wrap his or her hand around and grip.
- Easy Accessory Attachment – The KeyMod slots are found at the 3, 6 and 9 o’clock positions on the hand guard. Accessories that are KeyMod compatible can be attached directly to the slots, whereas accessories that are not KeyMod compatible can easily be attached by using one of CMMG’s 5-slot accessory rails.
Excellent trigger control can mean the difference between making and missing a difficult shot. That’s why the Mk4 V2 comes standard with a Geissele Automatics SSA two-stage trigger pre-installed. The Mk4 V2 comes with standard with a Magpul MOE pistol grip and butt stock and one 30-round Magpul PMAG. The Mk4 V2 is available now and the MSRP is $1,499.95.
The Mk4 V is a more cost effective option and comes with CMMG’s renowned single stage mil-spec trigger, an A2 pistol grip and an A1 buttstock.
