DDM4®V11® (Mil Spec +®)

The Daniel Defense M4 Carbine V11, based on the popular V9 series, was designed for shooters who prefer the benefits of the KeyMod system integrated in the new SLiM Rail.  KeyMod is a recoil resistant, two-part, direct attachment method for accessories that offers outstanding “return-to-zero” when accessories are removed and reinstalled.  The new SLiM Rail 15.0 offers incredible weight savings as well as superior cooling, ergonomics, and modularity while maintaining the strength and durability expected from Daniel Defense.  The long, 15” rail gives operators the option to have the support hand extended out closer to the muzzle allowing them to drive the gun more precisely and prevents over travel when transitioning between multiple targets.  This combined with our mid-length gas system, which is known to have a smoother recoil impulse, allows for quick, but precise rapid fire.  An uninterrupted picatinny rail on top and KeyMod attachment at 3, 6, and 9 o’clock, ensures plenty of real estate for optics and accessories and allows for maximum sight radius for accurate shooting with rail mounted iron sights.  The DDM4V11 is equipped with a free-floating, Cold Hammer Forged, 16” Government profile barrel and the newly designed, rugged and comfortable Daniel Defense Buttstock and Pistol grip.  This rifle is finished in Mil Spec + Cerakote.

GOOD ALL ROUNDER
Great quality. Furniture is good, although not big on the rubber overmold on the buttstock. Shoots great out the box. Would like to see them throw in a set of iron sights (as back-ups) given the price point, and more than one mag. Running optics it's not a big issue.

Great Rifle, Very Happy
I've had this rifle about a year now, and continue to be impressed by it. I added a Geissele SSA not long after I got the v11 and put a Vortex StrikeEagle on it. After getting it on paper at 100, it's no problem hitting steel out to 400-500 (not to mention coyotes much closer). Now just waiting for my tax stamp to come back so I can put the AAC M4-2000 on it.

Some mention the price being a little steep, but you should be able to pick one up from your local shop for a bit less than MSRP. I'd have no problem paying the same price again for a rifle of this quality. Now just wishing DD offered an adjustable gas block...

Excellent Weapon
Waited 5 months to get my first DDM4V11, it was worth the wait, what a quality product, took her to the range and shot 250 rounds and it was spot on, smooth operation, really like the Mil Spec look so does everyone that sees it. Looking forward to purchasing another as my Wife shot it and fell in love with it. This rifle is easy to shoot for lefties or right handers.

This is my 3rd AR, by far the best. put a set of Troy sights and a Leupold AR scope. Groups are superb. Good trigger out of the box also. Definately needs to have a Pelican case though.

OUTSTANDING!!!!!!!!!!
Just bought this a few months ago. Put a Vortex Diamondback HP 4X16 and Harris bipod on it. Shooting -1 inch groups at 100 yards right out of the box with Independence 5.56 prone with little effort. The heavy(ish) trigger got lighter after 140 rounds. (Just over 7 to right at 6 pounds)
My girlfriend and two other friends are going to buy DD very soon just from telling them of my experience. My girlfriend really likes how the V11 feels for leftys. And the V11 is just plain cool looking.

my first ar and not my last Daniel defense!
As my first ar purchase, I can say this rifle is all quality. I've shot multiple rifles in my military career but the fit and finish on the v11 with the cerakote is top notch. Hope to keep this rifle for its life. I've only put 60 rounds through it so far and no issues. Seems accurate using only MBUS. Trigger and recoil requires minimum effort.

Dependability, out of the box!
Incredible weapon. As we always say, "Buy a pair of $10 glasses for your $10 eyes and you get what you pay for" Well worth the extra money, especially for its out of the box accuracy and dependability. Running a Vortex Strike Eagle and a set of Dueck Defense offset ironsights and having a blast.

Beautiful piece of engineering and craftsmanship.
Almost every gun purchase I make is met with varying degrees of buyers remorse soon after getting it home, but not this one. This rifle is a thing of beauty. The fit and finish is impeccable and the feeling of quality is immediately evident as soon as you pick it up. Mounted an Aimpoint PRO and can't wait to get it zeroed.

Awesome rifle that will receive alot of compliments and envy from friends.
I bought this rifle and had it shipped to my local FFL dealer in Denver. As soon as I held it for the first time, I got chills and felt a red, white, and blue rush go through my veins. I knew I made the right choice. My girlfriend told me I was smiling like an idiot all day, but she just doesn't get it.
I have the Daniel Defense iron sights on it as well as a Holosun red dot w/ a high mount. I also have a Primary Arms weapon mounted light w/ pressure switch, but since it's a 16'' barrel, the light kinda gives a little too much weight towards the end of the barrel. So far I've put about 2,000 rounds through this rifle and it hasn't jammed or malfunctioned a single time. It was well worth the price in my opinion. I do plan on buying a 300 BLK and SBR from Daniel Defense in the future.

If looking for a higher than entry level AR, I'd sure consider this to be a great contender.
I was able to purchase this firearm for a reasonably less than suggested retail, which was excellent for me, after an entry level AR, and also a pre ban, the quality is top shelf, I got tons of value in this model, leaving my mark shy of excellent only for the fact that there are many upper shelf models that may offer more or better values, keeping in mind this does offer great value.

Can't beat Daniel Defense quality.
Everywhere I take this weapon, it is met with admiration and desire. I use it for 3-Gun competitions and when I contract out my employer has approved it for use. The Slim Rail system is incredible and i'm never going back from it. I've shot it when muddy, wet and cold with no error. If you're a serious rifle enthusiast, this is your match.

First Daniel Defense purchase is a definite winner!
Purchased through Able's in Huntsville, Tx. in November. Immediately put an Eotech site and since have loved putting about 2000 rounds through it. Other guns in the safe are jealous. Very happy with purchase. Next purchase will be the DD5V1. Shoots excellent and have had zero issues. Fit and finish is excellent. Only shortcoming of the purchase is the cheap case. Wish the gun came in a case worthy of a Daniel Defense AR.

The perfect all around carbine. Truck gun, hiking gun, fun gun... I'm brutal on my gear and the DDM4 V11 is damn near bulletproof. Dead-nuts accurate and it will spit out sub-par P+ range ammo all day long.

Great rifle, better company and great veteran discount!
I was blown away by the professionalism and customer service offered by Daniel Defense. I ordered the DDM4V11 direct from the website. I was surprised that Daniel Defense offered a great military discount. My rifle's fit and finish is just awesome! When you pay 1600$ for a rifle you really hope it lives up to your standards and this rifle didn't disappoint. I put 500+ rounds through it within the first hour of shooting it and it ran flawless. I am a combat veteran having served 25 months in Iraq. Throughout my time in combat I learned what it takes for your equipment to stand up to the daily grind. Thanks for making a great product but mostly thanks for taking care of Veterans!

I was very pleased with the weight and balance of this gun. It cycled like a champ and target acquisition between shots was quick and nimble. I added the EO Tech holographic sight and a stream light tactical light and now I'm prepared to protect all that I hold dear.
