The Gun: Primary Weapons Systems MK111 Mod-2M Pistol Package
The PWS MK1 MOD 2-M line, revamped for 2018, features the PWS long stroke piston system. While the internals remain the same as other PWS lines, the MK1 MOD 2-M offers a variety of features exclusive to this line.
Starting with patent pending PicLok technology on the free float handguard, users are able to mount either Picatinny or MLOK accessories on the front of their firearm. Moving to the fully forged upper and lower receivers, the craftsmanship of this rifle can be easily recognized. Eliminating forward assist, adding a flared mag well and built-in trigger guard, among other specific add-ons, the MK1 MOD 2-M takes high end firearms to a new level. Sleek, compact and ready for anything, the MK1 MOD 2-M is sure to please esthetically and in-action.

The Ammo: Black Hills 5.56
The Dual Performance™ line features a monolithic machined copper projectile that immediately begins expansion upon impact forming a temporary cavity exceeding the capability of conventional bullets. Once the large primary cavity is created, the petals release from the body of the projectile to cut separate wound tracks through the stressed tissue. The body of the bullet, still retaining a substantial percentage of its original weight but now free from the unnecessary drag, penetrates deeply to ensure maximum effect on the target.
Black Hills produces factory new ammunition equal to some of the best handloads and is quickly becoming one of most popular manufacturers of ammunition. Used primarily by all branches of the United State military, this ammunition is also used by competitive shooters and hunters. This 5.56 load was developed for AR-15 platform firearms.
MatchKing rifle bullets are super-accurate bullets with very thin jackets and are held to exacting tolerances in diameter and weight. Their accuracy has been acclaimed worldwide and they have been used to win more target competitions than all target bullets from other manufacturers combined. Each bullet is designed with a very small meplat in order to achieve the highest ballistic coefficient possible. This ammunition is new production, non-corrosive, in boxer primed, reloadable brass cases.
