    Daniel Defense MK18 gas port size?

    Hey guys I have been trying to find out what size Daniel Defense makes their gas ports on the MK18 uppers they sale.

    So far I have not been able to get in touch with them so I figured I would try to see if yall knew.

    My guess is that it is the standard size that companies like Colt and LMT use.

    Why do you need the info for?

    Just to see if it is overgassed or not, I have the A5 on my rifle and it seems a bit harsh when firing.

    It also seems to send brass out to the 1-3 o'clock positions.

    Eta: all my other rifles have been 20" A4 clones so that may be why I feel its rougher.

    Not, it is not overgassed. Do not compare an SBR to a rifle. Forget that damn brass o'clock shit. It's being way overused.

    Many companies will not release this. If you truly must know then pull the FSB and use some pin gages to measure it.
