Primary Weapons System MK116 PRO

  • Soft shooting
  • Adjustable long-stroke gas piston system
  • Trigger could be better
Editor’s Note:

The PWS MK116 Pro brings all the great features that PWS is known for to the consumer at a lower price point. This is achieved through the use of an extruded 6061 aluminum upper instead of the standard T6-7075 forged aluminum uppers of their other guns. The end result is still an extremely soft shooting rifle and reliable piston-driven AR-15 that is great for those looking to suppress their guns or who just want something a little different.

final verdict

PWS has been in the piston game for a long time, and it shows. The MK116 PRO is no exception, delivering outstanding performance and stellar reliability. The 3-position adjustable long-stroke gas system ensures reliability with all ammo while providing a very soft recoiling rifle that is easy to suppress. Good furniture, a solid handguard, and an ambidextrous charging handle leave very little that needs to be added out of the box. However, the trigger might be worth upgrading if you want something better than a fairly standard duty trigger. The 6061 upper helps save on cost without sacrificing long-term durability or reliability, making this gun a reasonably affordable entry for those interested in getting into the piston-driven AR game.
