Precision Reflex (PRI)
PRI originally supplied the US Navy at NSWC Crane with the round forearm free floating handguard for the SPR rifle, which became the Mk12 Mod0. Crane had originally produced the Mk12 upper receivers from commercial parts providers, like Precision Reflex. At the beginning of the War on Terror, when M4 parts were in short supply for regular ground forces, Crane was forced to take out of mothballs M16 A1 lower receivers to mate to the custom uppers that Crane built. Later versions of the Mk12 were found with lower receivers from Colt, Armalite, LMT and regular issue M4.
The Mod H, or "Holland RECCE rifle" was introduced after the Mk12 Mod0 and Mod1 rifles, and the name is credited to Master Sergeant Steve Holland, who was part of the group that developed the SPR rifle. The Holland RECCE rifle was a retrofit upper of the Mod 0 with the Gen3 round handguards. Originally, the loner Swan sleeve rail on the Mod 0 was going to be removed to further reduce weight, but ARMS did not have enough #22 high rings, so PRI created the shorter RECCE rail to replace the original Swan Sleeve. The original barrels were Noveske made with the SPR profile in rifle length gas system. Holland and John Noveske collaborated on the RECCE plans, and later RECCE rifles went on to use the Noveske barrel, while the Mod Holland eventually opted back to Douglas barrels found on the other Mk12 rifles.
This Mark 12 Mod H for Holland is built with PRI's Retro Gen III, which is most representative of the 16" Holland upper receiver groups.
PRI presents a commercial interpretation of the Mod H, using many of the important original components, and substituting commercially available or proprietary hardware to provide the shooter with a balance of a historically military correct clone rifle and a very nice price point to allow a larger audience to appreciate the Mk12 rifle. The Holland version has become increasing popular with clone enthusiasts and precision rifle shooters in general, as the 16" platform and folding back-up sights allow for a shorter, more nimble and slightly lighter platform than the Mk12 Mod 0 or the Mod 1 rifles with 18" barrels.
This rifle comes tested by PRI and ready to shoot 5.56mm NATO ammo. Charlie's recommends 77 grain Black Hills or Federal. The rifle is equipped with a 16" Douglas 416 stainless steel barrel with a fitted bolt and commercial carrier, flat-top receiver, with a Gen3 PRI carbon fiber black handguard. Allen Engineering SPR (Ops, Inc) brake and collar are standard, and profiled correctly to accept the Allen Engineering AEM-5 / Ops Inc #12 suppressor. The system also comes with a Gen III Rifle length carbon fiber free float forearm in FDE finish and a full length Picatinny top rail. The rifle barrel is Cerekoted in FDE, like the rest of the rifle, and chambered for 5.56 NATO ammunition. The lower is a PRI branded forged lower. Both the upper and lower receiver are Cerekoted in FDE. The milspec lower parts and black buffer tube include a B5 FDE SOPMOD buttstock and front and rear folding back-up flip-up iron sights from PRI in black oxided stainless steel.

Leupold Mark 4 2.5-8x36 TS30-A2 military contract scope
At Charlie's we are working hard to find those unique items, and this is one. In the world of Leupold scopes for the Mk12, there are a variety. Mostly, this was due to a) NSWC Crane grabbing what they could when the need for sniper rifles grew during the War on Terror, and; b) Leupold coming up with mods at the request of Crane and SOCOM and field commands. We bring you here a current production military contract scope made available by Leupold for Charlie's Mk12 program.
You can read more about the evolution of the TS30, but all share in common the 3-9x (or sometimes called the 2.5-8x) magnification in a small aperture objective lens, which just fit great for the shorter range 5.56mm cartridge. It was lightweight, reliable and small area for reflection from the forward lens.
The Mk12 Mod0 started with the TS30 which was non-illuminated and mildot, and then came various incarnations of the TMR reticle illuminated in red. Some of the early scopes were marked TS30A2 on the left side. Then came the Leupold marking, then came the BDC cap for the (then) new Mk262 77 grain OTM bullet, then came the laser markings for scope mounting, and finally the tethered battery cover. Why the laser markings? I am not sure. The best answer we seem to have gotten is that by the time the Mk12s (Mod0 and Mod1) were in large production, they US Military were popping-out sniper graduates like the Army Air Corps did pilots in WW-II, and when you give a 20 year old a sniper weapon... well, sometimes you have to make it stupid-proof. Enough said, if you want to ask why the tether. Charlie is old enough to have lived through college boys.
Anyway, we give some of this history to say: this is the latest version of the Leupold TS30-A2. This version came out circa 2013. Leupold has made this scope available just to be sold with the Mk12 rifles. This scope is 100% factory new, military contract Leupold scope.
Included with the scope is the ARMS #22 Medium rings, with the TRC (top ring cap) and Picatinny platform to mount a laser distance finder.

Charlie's has the rifles made by Precision Reflex, and much of the time, the rifle is in stock, as well as the optic and all the accessories.
--> When the rifle combo is in stock, you simply buy the in-stock rifle, and there will be some assembly and calibration time in our workshop, but not much.
--> When the rifle combo is out of stock, you have two choices:
1) You can simply leave your email address, and you will be notified when the rifle package is back in stock
2) You can make a $500 deposit, and hold your spot, and save $200 on the price of the package, for your time and trouble waiting. Deposits are non-refundable, unless your rifle package takes more than 5 months, which is wholly unlikely. If you have to wait, the wait time is probably up to two months on normal cycles.

THIS IS A SERIALIZED FIREARM. It must ship to a Federal Firearms License holder. No civilian exceptions.
Buying and shipping through Charlie’s is easy, but there is some information you need to know. Only a federally licensed firearms dealer may receive a firearm or federally regulated serialized item (like a receiver or suppressor). We cannot ship these items directly to you. Please follow these steps to process your transaction:
1) Check your state laws to make sure the federally regulated item you want to purchase is legal in your state. Your FFL dealer should be able to give you all of the necessary information regarding your state specific laws. But, if we ship to your FFL, and there is a legal issue, we cannot accept a return. So please make sure that you know and follow your local and state laws.
2) A quick google search will show you what Federal Firearms Licensed (FFL) dealers are in your area. When you are ready to purchase, contact the FFL dealer you would like to use and get their shipping address. During the check-out, put YOUR address in the “billing” section and the FFL DEALER’S address in the “shipping” section. If you don’t know your FFLs address, that’s okay. You can send the information later.
3) After check out, make sure to contact your FFL dealer to ensure they will receive your shipment for you (most do this for a small fee, but you should always double check).
4) Have your dealer send us a copy of their FFL to FFL@CharliesCustomClones.com. Charlie’s does not reach to your FFL (MAKE THEM EARN THEIR FEE!!!)
5) Be patient! In order to ensure we remain compliant with all federal laws, our compliance department is kept separate from our sales and operations team.

You should hear from our compliance department within 3-4 business days. If not, feel free to reach out for a status update.
