Difference between 7.62 LRT-SASS and 7.62 Mark 12
What is the difference between the LRT-SASS and the 7.62 Nato Mark 12? From the specs, they seem to be pretty close, but I am not sure. Can anyone explain this to me?
SASS has a fluted bull barrel and little lighter contour on the MK12 other than that is is assorized slightly diffrent
SASS has a harris bipod and adapter,PRS stock,JP trigger,tac grip,more rail covers (12),mangonel flip up sights,11.5lbs
MK12 had no bipod, CTR stock,2 stage trigger,houge grip, 6 rail covers,MI flip up sights,9.6 lbs
Does one shoot better than the other?
tough call they both are capable of submoa each has its advantages. you need to figure if the 400 bucks extra is worth it to you I would go the sass mysellf since if you dont have a bipod you will buy one anyway. so that leaves 300 and some change I like the JP rigger over the 2 stage and the prs stock better. bull barrels tend to be more accurate and take a little longer to heat up so again the call is yours.
I went with the SASS and have been satisfied with it. I added a suppressor recently and am having some issues I'm currently working out.
The main difference (and advantage) I see between the SASS & the Mark 12 is the SASS has a mid length gas system. The Mark 12 has a rifle length gas system.
I wish I got the Mark 12 so I could put an adjustable gas block in front of the rail, with the SASS the gas block is under the rail =(.
This is especially important to me since I'm trying to run it suppressed and am getting functionality problems as a result of the increased back pressure with the suppressor.
