SHOT Show 17 – KRISS USA Defiance DMK22C


Released under the Defiance brand, KRISS USA’s DMK22C is a dedicated .22 LR AR-15 pattern training rifle. To that end, the DMK22C can accept many MilSpec AR parts, such as collapsible stocks, pistol grips, and even AR-15 compatible trigger packs. Interestingly, the DMK22C features a patented barrel adapter, which allows for the installation of aftermarket Ruger 10/22 barrels. Also, the proprietary DMK22C magazine features a bolt-open mechanism to further cement its intended function as a training rifle.

    Uses 10/22-type barrels and LRBHO, genius! I’ve had a couple dedicated .22 AR uppers and they all left something to be desired as far as reliability and parts commonality. Hopefully this will be as reliable as one can expect from a .22lr AR and not cost 1K!

    Would be pretty sweet paired up with a Gemtech Mist
