***These use the Crane Spec .072" gas port size and are very soft shooting with full power ammo. These will not cycle steel case ammo unsuppressed. If you want them to please write it in the order notes and I will open up the gas port.***
The Mock 18 is our first special run of uppers. Obviously built out in the style of the famous DD MK18. Using a BA 10.3" crane spec chrome lined barrel, Toolcraft NIB BCG, and UTG Pro 9" Quad Rail. Gas block is Pinned in place for ultimate reliability. An excellent MK18 style upper at a quarter the cost with all of the attention to detail. Full lifetime warranty on all components and the first rebarrel is also free.
Each upper ships with a unique checklist noting the ejection pattern with brass and steel cased ammunition, function, lock back on empty, and any buffer/spring recomendations I may have. Also includes the spent brass shells in the box.

The Build Process:
Every upper is assembled by me, one at a time. Every piece is hand fit, barrels to the uppers, gas blocks to the barrels, gas tubes to the blocks, handguards, roll pins. If something doesn't fit properly and securely, I don't put it together. What that means is that you get an upper where every component fits together like a glove for a rock solid build that won't fall apart or tear itself asunder during hard use.
On top of that we use the proper threadlocker on the appropriate parts. We use blue loctite on the handguard screws and then torque them to 35 IN-LBS. On the gas block screws we torque them to 25 IN-LBS then use a red high temp threadlocker (#272) to ensure the gas block never shifts. #272 threadlocker holds its strength up to 450 degrees VS. the 300 degrees of standard loctite.

These are assembled by me by hand as well as transported back and forth from the range from test firing. Becuase of the handling of the uppers there will be some very minor cosmetic blemishes. If you are looking for a showroom finish, please look elsewhere. I expect my uppers to be used harshly and to handle the abuse. Any issues with function will be immediately addressed and remedied to the satasfaction of the customer.
