Cold Hammer Forging of barrels has been known for decades to produce the most accurate, longest lasting rifle barrels obtainable. The Cold Hammer Forging of barrels is accomplished through intense hydraulic pressure applied at opposing angles by carbide steel hammers. During the hammering process, a mandrel is inserted into the bore while the carbide steel hammers shape the barrel around the mandrel creating the chamber, the lands, and the grooves. In addition to the aforementioned benefits, the Cold Hammer Forging process creates a defect free bore and the most consistent chamber possible.

QualityA little more than I hoped for but damn worth it! My ddm4v5 has ran perfectly through 2500 rounds since I purchased it new . I compare all other AR rifles to DD and none can stack up to the quality! I am in the process of waiting on my nfa paperwork to clear for a new mk18. In the mean time I have decided to do my first build . I just finished the lower for my wife but it has to have a DD barrel. After looking at the website I think I am just going to do a complete upper! So much for doing a build! Thank you for all you guys and gals do to keep our country free and safe!
PositiveAs a law enforcement officer, I have been familiar with Daniel Defense products, both professionally and personally. I am looking forward to using this barrel in a build when it becomes available. I like that it is a 14.5" barrel yet designed for a mid-length gas system.
Its Daniel Defense... need I say more?I used this barrel for a build 3 years ago. Since then I've put several thousand rounds down the pipe. It has remained extremely accurate and dependable. I espect it to do so for many years to come.
