S.W.O.R.D. International – MK-18 Mod 0 ‘Mjölnir’


The SHOT Show Media Day at the Range had a lot of great offerings, but S.W.O.R.D. International’s MK-18 Mod 0 ‘Mjölnir’ really stood out.


The Mjölnir is a semi-auto, gas piston rifle chambered for .338 Lapua. It features a 22″ Lothar Walther button rifled, black nitride coated barrel. The upper receiver is SWORD CNC machined out of 7075-T6 aluminum; proprietary lines reduce felt vibration, and a unique brass deflector kicks brass forward and away. The lower receiver is also SWORD CNC machined from 7075-T6 aluminum. The proprietary bolt carrier is black nitride coated. The Mjölnir also features a heavy buffer and return spring, non-reciprocating side charging handle, CMC enhanced 3.5lbs trigger, and full length free floating KeyMod rail system.

Sadly, I didn’t get a chance to shoot this beast – it was display only. There’s also plans to release a .308 variant further down the road.

    The MK18 has a Double stack 10 round magazine. The rifle weighs roughly 11.5 lbs. Optional forward assist. The rifle is considerably smaller and lighter than the Noreen 338.
