Thanksgiving is here and it’s that time of year again when we, as a nation, take time to give thanks for all that we have been blessed with over the past year. At Daniel Defense, we realize that for the majority of Americans the last few years haven’t been easy but we wanted to take the time to show how thankful we are for our loyal customers and the freedoms we enjoy on a daily basis including the 2nd Amendment. We could think of no better way of showing just how thankful we are than by offering our customers the first ever Daniel Defense Black Friday Sale. 

Over the last few years, Black Friday has become almost as synonymous with the Thanksgiving Holiday as Pilgrims and Native American sharing a meal together and no other Daniel Defense Upper Receiver Group (URG) is as synonymous with the Daniel Defense brand as the DDM4 V1 URG. The DDM4 V1 URG includes a 16” Cold Hammer Forged barrel, carbine length gas system, our Omega X 12.0 FSP Rail, M16 bolt carrier group, Daniel Defense vertical foregrip, and the Daniel Defense A1.5 fixed rear sight.

While this iconic Daniel Defense URG usually sales for $1,019, for a limited time we are offering it for $866. Don’t miss your chance at owning this legendary URG at this very special Black Friday sales price.  This incredible sale price will last until December 02, 2011. Purchase online at DanielDefense.com. *See terms and additional details at the bottom of this newsletter.

From our family to yours,
We wish you a happy and safe Thanksgiving and thank you for your continued loyalty.
- Daniel Defense. Lighter. Stronger. Better.™

There are a lot of choices out there when deciding which AR/M4 is right for you. There are literally hundreds of brands and models to choose. In this series, we’ll explain the details, features, engineering and art that makes an AR into a DDM4.

When shopping for a new AR, the first question a firearms retailer will ask you is probably “What do you want to use it for?”. While it’s important to know what you, the individual, want to do with your Modern Sporting Rifle (MSR), before you even get to that point in the process you need to know what brands are worth your hard earned money in the first place. What are the differences are in all those black rifles up on the wall?

To manufacture an exceptional product, you first have to know what the standard is, and in the tactical AR/M4 world the standard is MIL SPEC (MILitary SPECifications). When Marty Daniel started Daniel Defense, in 2000, he didn’t just want to be another AR manufacturer. Marty wanted to make the lightest, strongest, and best AR on the market and that’s just what he did. He knew if Daniel Defense started with MIL SPEC as a baseline for quality and then surpassed it, you would have a finished product that was truly something special or what we refer to as MIL SPEC+.

So what makes a Daniel Defense rifle MIL SPEC+? Starting with the barrels, each barrel that Daniel Defense manufactures, in house, is cold hammer forged. The cold hammer forging process produces an exceptionally stronger and dimensionally more consistent barrel that has a tremendously longer service life. These barrels are all manufactured using 4150 steel and are chrome lined with an option for a 1:7 or 1:9 barrel twist. Daniel Defense also offers an array of different length barrels in several different barrel profiles which include standard government profile, strength to weight, and light weight version.

insetOther Daniel Defense features that encompass the MIL SPEC+ standard are a Magpul flared trigger guard, Magpul MOE buttstock with six points of adjustability, a feed ramp cut into the barrel extension, and a weight of approximately 6.5 lbs.inset Also, Daniel Defense offers variations of rails in an array of sizes. The rails that come standard on each Daniel Defense version allow the barrel to be completely free-floating which means that no matter what accessory you add the rail, accuracy is not affected.

insetSetting the standards at MIL SPEC+ from day one has put Daniel Defense in a position to win several of the most sought after military solicitations in the industry. Daniel Defense has been the manufacturer selected for the UK Ministry of Defense’s L85 Rail for the last four years as well as being awarded the contract to provide US SOCOM’s rails for the M4 and the MK-18, for the last eight years. Add all this up and what you looking at is anything but “Just Another Black Gun”.
