James introduces viewers to a new TFBTV mini-series, the Guns of SOCOM, which will discuss various firearms that have some relationship to Special Operations Command in the United States. If you´re interested in topics like these, this series is definitely something you should watch.
Episode 1 features the Daniel Defense Mk18, which is the closest COTS (“commercial off the shelf”) Mk18 clone. It features a 10.5 in. barrel and the DD RIS II, which is the same handguard/quad rail that Daniel Defense supplies to SOCOM.
Episode 2 James introduces viewers to the Mk12 Special Purpose Rifle and AEM5 Silencer. The Mk12’s primary purpose was to provide a light, precise rifle that could be used in close-to-medium-long range combat. In other words, it needed to be more effective and more accurate than the M4 while being almost as maneuverable, but with an optic that could be dialed down to engage at closer ranges, or zoomed in to reach out to longer distances.
