The Daniel Defense M4 Carbine V11 SLW is one of the lightest, fastest-handling rifles available in the DDM4 line-up.  Built around a Cold Hammer Forged, 14.5” Lightweight profile barrel, the V11 SLW has an Extended Flash Suppressor which is pinned and welded to reach the NFA required 16” minimum barrel length.  The Mid-length gas system provides smooth and reliable cycling under any conditions and reduces both perceived recoil and wear on moving parts.  A free-floating SLiM Rail 12.0 handguard offers incredible weight savings as well as superior cooling, ergonomics, and modularity while maintaining the strength and durability expected from Daniel Defense.  With the KeyMod attachment at 3, 6, and 9 o’clock and an uninterrupted 1913 Picatinny rail on top, the V11SLW has plenty of room for the sights, optics, and accessories the operator may require.  The rifle is finished off with the rugged and comfortable Daniel Defense Buttstock and Pistol grip.

A must-have in the gun case!
I bought this as my first (and only so far) AR. LOVE IT! It is light weight and so comfortable to hold, carry and shoot. I am glad I bought it several years ago, since the price has gone up a bit, but it is still an excellent AR for the price.

Outstanding rifle - I highly recommend it.
The Daniel Defense DDM4V11 SLW is my primary rifle. I recently trained with Haley Strategic Partners D5 Carbine class and this rifle performed incredibly. The lighter weight of this rifle off-set the heavy Elcan optic and it was a pleasure to carry and shoot. I did not have any problems over the multi-day training course in which we shot thousands of rounds. I highly recommend the rifle

Reliable & Accurate to 500 Yds & some change. Mounting Accessories are whatever you can possibly image.
1:7 Twist with 62 Gr. Or 69 Gr. & it’s right as rain.

Super Satisfied with the V11
I recently purchased the V11, and I can say I really like it. The quality is evident. The weight and balance is exceptional; it's quick to transition. With a Trijicon MRO on it, I feel like I can run-n-gun this rifle all day! Great carbine DD!,,,
Review by Mike from Scottsdale, AZ / (Posted on 10/20/2016)
The Gun of All Trades
I research everything I buy, and this gun was exactly what I wanted. It is compact, but with the mid-length gas system, stable enough to be a great light-weight all-around rifle. Everything DD does is quality, and this gun is ready to rock right out of the case. This is the perfect "gun of all trades." It is accurate long range, it is light and short enough for CQ and it is durable for anything you can put it through. If you are reading this and thinking of buying a Daniel Defense, stop looking and just buy this rifle --- that is... if you can find one. They are in such hot demand, if you find one... buy it.
