Aside from the caliber, the most notable difference in this new Mk4 K AR Pistol in 5.56mm is that it features a 12.5-inch barrel, compared to the 8.2-inch barrel found on the .300 AAC Blackout and 9mm versions.
The company says the increased barrel length will allow shooters to attain greater accuracy and reliability with the popular 5.56mm cartridge.
The Mk4 K AR Pistol comes with a Magpul MOE pistol grip and stock, an A2 muzzle compensator and features an ambidextrous rear sling mount.
Other features include CMMGs RKM11 free-floating KeyMod hand guard. The KeyMod slots are located at the 3, 6 and 9 oclock positions and allow users to mount compatible accessories directly to the hand guard.
For accessories that are not yet compatible with the KeyMod system, CMMG offers separate 5-slot rails that attach to the hand guard. For mounting sights or optics, a 1913 Picatinny rail runs across the top of the firearm.
