[SHOT 2019] NEW “MK1 PRO” Rifle and Pistol line From PWS

    PWS MK116

    The New PWS PRO MK116 Rifle

    New pew for you

    From the land of gems and potatoes come the new PWS MK1 PRO line.  Unvieled to us at SHOT 2019, the PRO MK111 Pistol and PRO MK116 rifle still have the long-stroke piston and excellent features that PWS is known for, but differ in a key area:  They cost 1/2 the price of the MK1 MOD2 line!  This is achievable because the upper receivers are not forged and machined, but rather 6061 extrusions.  Another difference is the PRO line comes with standard A2 flashers instead of the fancier compensators found on other PWS firearms.  MSRP for complete guns is $995.95, and uppers are also available for $649.95.

    The New PWS MK111 Pistol

    I’ve been fortunate enough to witness PWS’ prototype testing a number of times. They test the hell out of these firearms to make sure they won’t fail the consumer.  If one is in the hunt for a well-priced piston driven AR, the new PRO line should be worth a look.
