Kriss USA announced the new Defiance DMK22 Rimfire Sporting Rifle series has officially begun delivering to authorized resellers and distributors.

The Defiance DMK22 series is a .22LR chambered AR-15 style carbine lineup. Offering two models, the DMK22C and DMK22 LVOA, the series boasts Defiance Low Profile Flip Sights, DS150 adjustable stock and pistol grip.

The DMK22C touts a 16.5-inch, 4140 Chrome Moly barrel with a 1:16-inch twist rate. The 13-inch free floating handguard utilizes an aircraft grade aluminum construction with a MIL-STD 1913 Picatinny top rail and modular rail section attachment points at the three, six and nine o’clock positions. The DMK22C is compatible with most Ruger 10/22 aftermarket barrels. In addition, select .22LR AR-15 magazines fit and feed in the model, though they do not trigger the bolt catch. The DMK22C variant is also compatible with a few AR-15 aftermarket trigger packs.

The secondary model, the DMK22 LVOA, features a proprietary sporting rifle receiver forged from aluminum alloy and designed to work alongside AR-15 upgrade parts. The model also boasts the War Sport LVOA modular handguard.

Kriss says consumers will have more customization options which can be achieved via a patent pending barrel adaptor system.

The Defiance DMK22C is available in black with a price tag of $699 or in Cerakote Flat Dark Earth or OD Green for $799. The DMK22 LVOA comes in black and retails for $799.
