10.3" Ripcord CQBR (MG)

The Upper Receiver Group on this R5218 machine gun started life as a Block II CQBR. It was housed in a Colt Upper Receiver, had a Colt 10.3" Barrel, a MK12 Gas Block and the beefy RIS II from Daniel Defense. When it was time to re-barrel this chunky boy, we wanted to maintain the "clone correctness" and stick with 10.3" barrel. We were able to source the barrel from Daniel Defense. At about the same time, we had started refining our anodized colors such as FDE. The Colt upper receiver, unfortunately was at the point of needing replaced. So one of our Gen1 Upper Receivers took its place. Now that the Colt Upper Receiver, DD RIS II and MK12 Gas Block have been replaced, it is no longer a clone but a build inspired by the Block II MK18.
