6.5 Creedmoor Now Part of the CMMG Family

    CMMG Mk3 6.5_Creedmoor

    CMMG announced the company added 6.5 Creedmoor to its line of AR style rifles. Right now, the company is offering four different models chambered for the long range cartridge: the Mk3, Mk3 P, Mk3 DTR and the Mk3 DTR2.


    This is the base model AR chambered in 6.5 Creedmoor. It uses a 7075-T6 AR10 lower with a rifle length gas system. It has a 20″ medium taper barrel made of 416 stainless steel. The barrel is threaded and capped with an A2-style muzzle device. CMMG¬†uses one of its own KeyMod hand guards and a single stage trigger. The MSRP is $1,799.95.

    Mk3 P

    A step up from the base Mk3, the P model has a 24″ heavy barrel with a CMMG SV muzzle brake. This barrel is also made of 416 SS.The company sticks with the same single stage trigger and hand guard, but upgrades to a Magpul MOE pistol grip and stock. This one sells for $1,899.95.

    Mk3 DTR

    If you want M-LOK attachment points, the DTR is the model you should look at. This version of the gun uses the company’s new RML15 hand guard that has M-LOK slots. It uses the same barrel and brake as the P model, but swaps the stock out for the Magpul PRS. The asking price is $2,099.95.

    Mk3 DTR2

    The top model currently being offered is the Mk3 DTR2.  This is a DTR with a Giessele SSA two stage trigger installed. Other than the higher price ($2,274.95,) it appears to use the same barrel and other parts the DTR does.
