an AR in a caliber other than .223, 5.56 or 7.62? A bolt action rifle in some non-mainstream caliber? A handgun chambered in .327 Federal Magnum, 5.7mm or something other than the usual suspects?
Boonville, MO –-(Ammoland.com)- Known for delivering innovative, practical products to market, CMMG continues to live up to its reputation with the release of the new Mk4 DTR2 rifle, chambered in Federal Premium 224 Valkyrie (courtesy ammoloand.com).
Federal Premium introduced the 224 Valkyrie cartridge in December 2017. Its purpose is to deliver exceptional long-range performance that is comparable to 6.5 Creedmoor, but out of a smaller, AR15-sized caliber. The 224 Valkyrie is designed to be an incredibly flat-shooting round by achieving supersonic velocities out to 1,300 yards. With the added benefits of minimal recoil and an affordable price point, 224 Valkyrie has the potential to be the go-to cartridge of long-range shooters for years to come.
Recognizing this potential, CMMG’s engineers quickly went to work developing a rifle that would maximize the effectiveness of the 224 Valkyrie and meet the needs of long-range shooters straight out of the box. The result is the Mk4 DTR2.Federal Premium’s 224 Valkyrie takes the long-range precision and ballistic performance of the MSR 15 platform to unheard of heights.
The Mk4 DTR2 has all of the fundamental features expected in a long-range AR15, including:
- A 24-inch medium taper barrel, with a 1:7 twist
- CMMG’s SV Brake to reduce muzzle rise
- Magpul MOE Pistol Grip and PRS Stock
- Geissele SSA 2-Stage Trigger
Additionally, CMMG has outfitted this new rifle with an RML14 M-LOK hand guard and all-new CMMG Ambi Charging Handle. The Mk4 DTR2 is built on a 7075-T6 AL lower receiver and a forged 7075-T6 AL upper receiver for optimum durability. It ships standard with a 10-round 6.8 SPC magazine and is backed by CMMG’s Lifetime Guarantee. CMMG also offers five different Cerakote colors as an optional upgrade.
