DML – Designated Marksman Lightweight


The Culper Precision Designated Marksman Lightweight rifle has the same feature-set as the standard DM but with a very light tapered pencil (.625″) profile barrel.  This model reduces the weight of the rifle making for an easier to carry option.  The DML is our most popular “everyday AR-15” model with civilians.  It is more suited to the simpler configurations (light, red-dot, sling) common with most home-defense and “truck-guns” but it is still robust enough to use in moderate fire-schedules like the average carbine class.  If you are comparing the DM to the DML wondering which one fits you better, perhaps the most definitive guideline is that the DM was designed primarily for scoped applications, longer distance engagements, and heavier setups such as magnifiers, lasers, and bipods.  The DML is most commonly used with non-magnified optics, and much lighter and/or simpler rifle setups.
