- Was not expecting to love it this muchPut it in a build i made, everything from accuracy to recoil was significantly improved. I honestly can't find any complaints. My all time favorite rifle now
- Best Barrel for DMRUsed this barrel to build a precision rifle. Accuracy is top notch with heavy match grade pills. It does exactly what it's supposed to do. You get what you pay for.
- Tackdriver with a minimal weight penalty.This barrel is a tack driver. I’m running one cut to 14.5 with a pinned brake. Obviously not the lightest option out there but it’s simply a fantastically robust and stable platform and extremely accurate.
- OutstandingHave this on my hunting/dmr rifle. Shoots exceptionally well with any ammo I run.(55-77gr)
Doesn't make for the lightest rifle but that is not what it was designed for.
- Accuracy reigns supreme!Used this outstanding barrel on my scratch-built M4. Paired it with an Adam Arms piston. The result is my M4 easily shoots sub-MOA ... a real tack driver!
- Pure Awesomeness !I did a SPR type build using the 18” S2W barrel. I couldn’t be happier! Great barrel, super accurate!
- DD 18" S2WUsed this barrel on a custom build and couldn't be happier with it. The accuracy at 100yds was sub-moa and the fit and finish is outstanding. I would consider this a bull barrel as it is a little on the heavy side but not a big deal. I built the rest of my rifle on the light side to make up for this. Overall this barrel is well worth it DD delivered another solid product I will continue to buy from them.
- Great accurate barrelI have this on my custom built dmr/hunting rifle. It is an outstanding barrel.
- Awesome accuracyI put this barrel on my first build because i knew of Daniel Defense quality and wanted an 18" mid length gun. Though it is a little heavy it shoots exceptionally well with any ammo. Weight, well in my eyes an 18" gun is an AR built for a little more Distance and not close quarters. So, I went generally light with everything else and its an awesome build. I tried the Daniel Defense stock, grip, for-grip package as well which i like as well.
- DD 18" S2WBought this barrel and used your 15" Slim rail and clamp style low profile gas block on a BCM upper receiver and Spike's Lower using your Lower receiver parts kit and Tornado Furniture. Your team is producing some quality stuff...
