Building an AR-DMR Mk12 clone

We caught up with Nick Betts of Prometheus Design Werx to take a closer look at the nice AR-DMR / MK12 clone he built recently. Nick is a former US Army sniper and has a love for weapons of all types, shapes and sizes, but he’s new to the AR world…


In his own words, Nick told us the story of his AR-DMR build:

I am fortunate enough to call Abraham Hepler of Shepherd Firearms a friend. Abraham couldn’t let me be AR-less so he helped me initiate my build.

I knew that I wanted a precision rifle but wasn’t sure how crazy I wanted to go with it. I absolutely LOVE the military issue MK12 and after some research I was kind of sold on doing a civvie variant of it. I didn’t readily have the funds available to do a full-clone, but I knew that I could build one just as good with different parts.
