I have searched all over this forum and I'm almost suprised that I haven't seen any talk of MK12 clones? I am building my 3rd AR now and decided to profile it after the SPR. I am patiently waiting to hear back from BHW about a MK12 profile barrel.
What are your thoughts, ideas, current builds?

I have an SPR clone in 5.56. Great shooting stick, it is more accurate than I am.
I believe that if you look at the specifications of the SPR you'll see the BHW standard profile barrels are the same or very near to the same contour as the Government SPR. On the other hand, if you are looking for something that resembles more to the DPMS Mk12 then a BHW fluted bull barrel would be the contour you are looking for.
Now if we could just make up our mind on the caliber....

I have a Vltor low pro gas block for this build. This will be my 3rd AR build but my 1st upper assy that I've built. Anyway, the low pro looks like the gas tube would be slightly lower to the barrel? Do they take a different gas tube or is this just an illusion? I've never noticed variations being sold, just rifle mid or carbine length tubes, so I assume not.
