DD5®V1® (Mil Spec +®)

The new DD5V1 is a groundbreaking, performance-driven platform engineered from muzzle to buttstock. Incorporating over a decade of expertise from industry-leading Daniel Defense engineers and designers, the DD5V1 establishes a whole new standard in the .308 platform. With innovative features like a 4-bolt connection system utilizing a unique barrel extension, an optimized upper receiver, an improved bolt carrier group, ambidextrous controls, a configurable modular charging handle, and a cold-hammer-forged barrel, the DD5V1—although built around a traditional AR platform— establishes a new tradition in 7.62 rifles. It also features a Geissele SSA two-stage trigger for precise fire control. Even with all of these features, plus a DD Superior Suppression Device and 15” Picatinny top rail, the DD5V1 weighs only 8.3 lbs. The new DD5V1 will be sure to deliver the accuracy, reliability, and durability expected from Daniel Defense.

  • Innovative 4-bolt connection system utilizing a unique barrel extension securely attaches free-floating CHF barrel and KeyMod handguard mounts securely to upper without barrel nut
  • Bolt and carrier designed with oversized cam pin, enhanced extractor geometry, and dual ejectors
  • Ambidextrous safety selector, magazine catch, bolt release, and configurable modular charging handle
  • Lower receiver features integral oversized trigger guard and flared magazine well for SR-25 type magazines
  • Geissele SSA 2-Stage Trigger with its smooth 2.5 lb take-up and clean 2 lb break
  • Finish: Daniel Defense Mil Spec + Cerakote

What's the point
What is the point, just join the ARMY or police, instead playing dress up with an assault rifle

I've been holding off buying an ar10 style weapon mostly due to how heavy they are and the marginal accuracy I've seen from some of these type rifles. But after putting rounds down range with the DD5, those problems have been pushed aside. This thing is everything I've been looking for in an ar10 style gun. Light, quality spec., and deadly accurate!!! First 10 rounds after zero were all inside a silver dollar at 100yds. using cheap factory loads. Bring on the good stuff!!!

Better than PWS
Much more accurate and reliable than the PWS 16" that I owned. Wish you'd make one in 6.5 Creedmoor.

Great Gun
It could be a little less costly
Review by Padric / (Posted on 2/26/2018)
Great rifle
I need a longer range to even challenge this rifle. 400 yds is not enough. Flawless performer.
Review by Boat Tail / (Posted on 2/14/2018)
Another excellent weapon from DD
You can tell DD put a lot of thought in making this weapon. It's sleek, sexy, and simply a Bad A**! Any one looking for a 7.62 couldn't find another manufacturer that could beat the DD platform. Thank you for making such a superior weapon.

Amazing rifle never malfunctions when using correct ammunition. The best 308 AR on the market
Amazing keep it up Daniel Defense ~ customer for life
Review by GunGuyWilly / (Posted on 3/14/2017)
I love this rifle
Absolutely amazing rifle. Perfect example of getting what you pay for. Expensive? Yes. Worth it? Definitely. Every detail of the rifle is top notch. Shoots like a dream. A little more kick than an AR15, but hits where you aim & hits hard. True battle rifle.

You will NOT be disapointed, if you get one. If you do, let ME know.
Before I begin, I am not talking bad about any competitor of DD. I purchased a different companies .308 and it was heavy. I sucked it up figuring it was due to the gas piston and other inner workings of the weapon. A Marine who worked there showed me his personal weapon, and at that VERY MOMENT, I knew I made a mistake in choice. He had everything I had bought to install, but was lighter than my other companies AR10 with nothing on it. I did my time, and waited, and the the first time I saw the DD5V1, there was no arguing, I want that weapon. Took one hellafied hit in devaluing my weapon, but I didn't care. I had what I wanted, and am NOT looking back. You can find anything you want wrong on any weapon out there, but folks like who they like. I'm a convinced DD fan now, and I thanked the owner and staff for what they did. I hate five star reviews being usually they're done by paid folks who don't even know what a weapon is or what they're supposed to say.
