DDM4®V11®

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™ (Slim Lightweight Modular).  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.

All the men are envious
I have the DD V11 and couldn't be happier. Mine is a smoke gray and black which I think looks cooler than all black. All the men stare when they see me shooting at the range probably because my groups are so tight. I've had it for about 2 years and shoots reliably and accurately every time. I recommend it to all my female shooter friends.

Mean top tier AR!
I've owned this rifle for 3 years. I bought it new for way less then the current MSRP above. I have about 6 ish thousand rounds through it. It shoots lights out, sub MOA with with any match stuff I've bought and probably 1.5 MOA with garbage military surplus stuff. I can count on one hand, well one finger, how many times the gun has had a failure and I induced that by not cleaning or lubricating it for about 2000 rounds. It failed to go into battery just barely. The factory trigger is so so. Definitely usable, but I put a giessele 2 stage. DD, you have a top tier AR, put match triggers in them out of the factory. I also put a BCM charging handle on it. Other than that it's stock and it is a beast. I have owned and currently do own a few ARs and its tied with my BCM recce 11 for my favorite. I think the price jump is kind of a bummer and for that reason alone I gave it 4 out of 5 for price and value.

Best rifle I have ever shot/handled, hands down. It is not a cheap rifle by any means but it is worth every penny. Carry mine at work and I have zero doubt that it will go bang when I need it to. I don't depend my life on anything but top quality products and this is a must for me. DD customer for life.

Great product
I bought this rifle at my local dealer. I was looking for a rifle for the last year or so and was stuck between the DDM4V11 and the SIG MCX. I picked M4V11 over the MCX because the reviews were all positive and the price was much better. I knew from the first time I fired the weapon I made the right choice. I zeroed both my Strikefire RDS and iron sights (bought from dealer) in less then 30 rounds. The weapon fired smooth and had little recoil. The design is beautiful and the rail system is just the right size to allow me to get a good c grip on the rifle without feeling like I’m choking it. I definitely feel I’ve made the right choice with this rifle.

My new Georgia team
I love mine. The fit and finish is incredible. Much lighter than many alternatives. It is pricey for an AR but it’s tolerances are extremely precise too. I recently shot it side by side with my cousin’s M and P Sport and it is definitely a cut above. It feels more solid, has a much nicer hand guard and rail, and an excellent trigger. Recoil difference was negligible but the DDM4 just felt better. I am from GA, I am a UGA fan and always have been, I am a Braves fan and always have been. I am used to, and almost expect, disappointment. This rifle is made in GA, and it is the best thing to come out of that state since me.

Best manufactured AR15 at any price
Have to rate this rifle five stars all around. The M4V11 is a top quality, supremely flexible AR-15 rifle. QD Sling mounts where you want them, the combination of Picatinny rail and Key Mod is on point, and the entire weapon is sturdy and light weight. They say buy once, cry once, but I have yet to shed a tear over this purchase. What a beautiful example of top quality American Engineering and workmanship. I am willing to pay for quality, truly no regrets here.

Amazing Quality
I've shot many m4 and ar platform rifles over my career, but this rifle puts all others to shame. It's extremely light, slim, and comfortable to shoot. Another positive area that can be spoken for in regards to this rifle is the accuracy. I was able to catch this on sale for the holidays so the price is still high, but overall i'm very impressed with the quality.

The Daniel Defense M4 V11 is one of the sleekest designed and well built rifles I've ever had the pleasure of owning. From the very first slow trigger pull you realize, this is a quality product and smile just comes across your face as you can't help but be impressed. I shoot my V11 for range practice and I now want to competition shoot as a result of the accuracy of this rifle. The only extra was that I equipped mine with a Vijicon red dot.

Outstanding rifle and great company.
At one time I owned five ARs in various calibers but since I've become more interested in bolt guns and wood and steel military rifles I decided to sell all of them except one. It was an easy choice to keep the DDM4v11. It's quality and attention to detail is obvious and out of the box accuracy was unsurpassed by any of my others.
Since I live near Savannah Georgia, I'm also a fan of Daniel Defense and it's owner, Marty Daniel.

Great Rifle!
After a lot of research for my 1st AR platform I got the last V11 my local dealer had in stock. It's light weight and accurate. Used it in a 2 day carbine class and it worked flawlessly. Trigger pull took some getting used to but overall it's a great rifle. It always draws other shooters attention when I'm at the range. Highly recommend this rifle if you want quality out of the box.

I just got one and it is great. Took it to the range and sighted in an Aimpoint in about 3 rounds. It is light and beautiful. Black and sleek. The trigger breaks clean and return to set is short. I looked at a bunch of AR's before I bought the Daniels, I think it is the best rifle for the money.

Review by Frank / (Posted on 4/24/2017)
Absolutely phenomenal rifle.
I absolutely adore this weapon. It's fantastically light and remarkably accurate. The SLiM rail is incredibly comfortable, and small enough in effective diameter that my 9 year old daughter has no problem getting on top of the gun and putting accurate rounds downrange. The trigger is crisp like a Ritz cracker, with a reasonable pull and virtually no take up, even after putting 750 rounds through it in the 3 weeks since I made the purchase. The only modifications I've made were the ejection port cover (purely cosmetic; I just had to have the "cool guy" engraving on the back side) and the pistol grip (the stock grip was a little small for my 6'2", 250lb bear-mitt hands). Aside from that, NOTHING else needs changing. This thing makes my old service rifle feel like a pawn shop special held together with chewing gum and 100mph tape. If you're thinking about pulling the trigger on purchasing one of these, DO IT. You will be glad you did.

Great company and highly recommend.
I own three AR-15s in different brands. My V11 is by far the best. This rifle shoots amazing and will probably purchase another model of Daniel Defense in the future. I had questions prior to purchasing and I reached out to their customer service on 3 different occasions they were very helpful. The only negative I can say is for the quality of rifle this is the trigger could be better. I will simply replace with a drop in but one from the factory would have been ideal. Great company and highly recommend.

Daniel Defense - King of the Mountain!!
My first AR style rifle was a Rock River Arms and was never that impressed. Tried to use it for hunting but it never felt comfortable or "right". I have always been an avid shooter and hunter that considers myself traditional. I gave up and resisted the AR platform because I didn't think the AR related to hunting but more of competitive, targets and "shoot it up" type rifles.

I did a lot of research and decided to get a higher end AR type rifle. All the information and data led me to a few specific manufacturers and Daniel Defense was always one of the three highest rated.

I got the DDM4V11 and from the very moment I got the barrel hot I loved it. The quality is superb, handling is effortless, beyond surprised with the accuracy and response of the gun. I've taken pigs out to 200 yards consistently with no adjustments needed. The gun feels "right" and fits perfectly when I shoulder it.

No doubts, no other choice than Daniel Defense!! I will be getting the 300 blackout asap.

Buy once, cry once.
I have owned my v11 for over a year now, and thought now would be perfect to share my review of this firearm. This rifle is built like a brick s*%#house. Solid. I have a couple of buddies who are also in to firearms, and they change parts on their AR's like theyre going out of style. With the v11, all of the mechanical parts are top notch; no need to change a thing. After many trips to the range and a few thousand bullets later, this gun is still mechanically sound. The price of admission is a bit on the higher end, but you pay for quality, and this rifle definitely shows it. The only reason why i gave it a 4/5 stars on price is because it doesnt come with sights. Small price to pay for such an awesome rifle. Bravo Daniel Defense, bravo.

AR-ENVY
This was my first AR-style platform and I'm extremely pleased with how this rifle performs. I was initially looking at some of the entry level platforms and quickly realized that by the time I got done upgrading everything to how I wanted it, I was well into the $1,000's. Why not pay a little more and get quality and craftsmanship from the start? Well thought out design and will be a reliable firearm for life. All of my buddies have AR envy.

DDM4v11 - Succeeds where others have failed
This is by far, the best rifle I've owned to date. I currently own several for different purposes; work, competition, hunting, etc. A large part of my adult life has consisted of spending countless hours shooting various rifles in this platform. I have not found a better choice than Daniel Defense. Period. This particular rifle meets many needs and in my opinion is capable of delivering far more than most mortals can ask of it.

Check it out. You may love it.
I shot it only only 2 times and already totally excited.
1. Light, handy, mobile
2. It does not climb at all. The mitigator works as advertised.
3. Posted 2 MOA from militarily grade ammo right of the bat. I will definitely will feed it with match grade ammo later.
4. Recoil is virtually nonexistent: if you do your part the reticle will stay in 2 MOA circle. Very impressive.
5. Some may dislike trigger travel distance, but I come from bolt rifle world. What do I know anyway. I think I can make it work for me. In all other respects it's very nice.

This is my first M4/AR type rifle and I'm very pleased with out of the box trigger performance, quality of the machining, everything is top notch - including documentation. I'm very confident DD support and repair will exceed expectations should I need their assistance in the future.

Hey Daniel defense, just would like to thank you for building such great riffles. Already put 4000 rounds in these riffle and never had any malfunction.

Great Rifle!
After a lot of research, went with the DDM4 V11 for my first AR platform. The build quality is excellent. It's so light weight but has a solid feel to it. Put about 1000 rounds of various brands of ammo through it without any issues. Took a while to get used to the trigger break. Very accurate using BUIS or red dot holding sub 1" groups at 100 yards. For not having fired a rifle in many years, I'm very happy with this gun. Having more fun shooting this than I have had in a long time. Now I see how people go all in tricking out their AR's. Going to need more ammo!

Levels of magnitude above expectations
I bought my Tornado Gray V11 and was expecting quality as per all the reviews and videos watched before deciding. When the rifle came it definitely exceeded my expectations for quality in design, material and workmanship.

The day at the range was even more rewarding after having been able to get multiple .75 MOA groups with commercial ammo and a 1-4 scope.

I've always been very critical of everything and have, in the process, learned to appreciate quality. Daniel Defense is definitely committed to that quality and rest assured you'll not be disappointed.

This is a Riflemans Rifle
This rifle is everything it is supposed to be, and maybe more. I grew up shooting National Match completion with a Colt HBAR. It was a nice rifle and it competed well with hand loaded ammo. But, it never made me a big AR fan. It was simply "the mouse gun". I actually enjoyed shooting my M1 Garand, and just about anything else, much more. Once I moved on from completion I got away from AR's and had no real desire to shoot them. Two years ago I went to a Gunsite carbine class. It was an awesome experience where I fell in love with two Daniel Defense rifles that were in our class. I swore I would own one as soon as I could manage it. I have owned my V11 for about 8 months now. I mounted a Leupold 1.5 x 4 Mark AR on top and installed a 3 lb. Timney trigger. I have put about 1500 rounds thru her so far without a single miss feed or malfunction. I have been extremely happy with this rifles accuracy. Just about any 55 grn. bullet off of the shelf will shoot MOA or less groups at 100 yards. I recently pulled the bullet out of some bulk FMJ American Eagle ammo and reloaded with Nosler 55 grn. Ballistic tips to shoot prairie dogs in CO. I was blown away when I started shooting 1/4" groups at 100 yards! And yes that was with a 4x scope. I am even more impressed with this rifle every time I shoot it. This rifle inspires confidence knowing I can absolutely handle any situation inside of 400 yards if I do my part. Thank you Daniel Defense for building one of the finest rifles I have ever squeezed the trigger on.

I'm a big fan of Daniel Defense so I don't have a whole lot bad things to say. I have an old V9 that we enjoy shooting, but i was thinkin V11 , my son loves the V9 so much that I gave it to him and I got myself a V11. When I unwrapped it and picked it up, the first thing that popped into my head was how light and solid it felt . Easily stays on target. And Where I live heat can be a problem but the V11 stays pretty cool and after a few hundred shots or so without a hiccup i completely trust this rifle.

But for top of the line products you'll have to pay top of the line prices. After some more accessory additions, and practice, I plan on making this my duty weapon. But so far I'm very pleased with my DD!

Absolutely Amazing
Once upon a time, I shot AR's all the time and got paid for it (US Army, Desert Storm era). I was the armorer and spent quite a bit of time around guns ;-) Moved on to hunting rifles and pistols once I got out, but always loved my M16 A2 and knew one day I would get something similar.
After much research and discussion with family members who were in law enforcement/military, I researched DD. Could not find a single negative about their product...so I bit.
Fell in love like most people who move beyond just staring at it...it is beautiful, but once you get it in your hands you can tell that there is some quality craftsmanship put into this.
I have only had it out once so far, but was immediately impressed. No problems after 300 rounds. Just using BUIS I was able to hit whatever I wanted out to 200 yards, no problem.
I am looking forward to taking this out somewhere and putting some more rounds through it as well as some longer range shooting. My entire family loved shooting it, and my wife and daughter were not "gun people" before. My daughter even asked when we were going back out ;-)
Anyway, all that to say, if you are on the fence about getting yourself a DD rifle, jump off right now and buy it. You won't be disappointed!!

American Quality Georgia Pride
I am not a gun expert in any sense of the word however I am an expert on what I'm comfortable using. When I decided I wanted an AR my husband a Georgia boy does what he does best and schools his little Yankee wife ; ) I say that with a lot of love. He's an engineer so research is his game. We talked about a lot of features and some brands I recognize some I know well some I've used or bought. I'm 4'10" so recoil and weight and size is a big deal for me and he looks for options that I can be comfortable with. With all that we talked about the name Daniel Defense seamed to keep coming out so I was pretty dang sure this was his preferred choice. I bought the M4V11 today. I looked at a bunch of manufacturers locally to get the feel of the AR and learn more before I made a final choice. I really liked and felt comfortable holding the M4V11 and after I rigged it out I took it for a ride. I think I am in love. Smooth as silk. My 4'10" frame noticed no recoil. I was extremely comfortable and am so glad this is now mine. I use the word comfortable a lot because I feel being comfortable with what you buy you will use it and use it well. The story of Daniel Defense is a true American story. Homegrown American made Quality built right here in Georgia.

500+ rounds, no problems and very confident i have a quality product.
Love it. It is my first AR so i took it to the club for a lesson. Every instructor come over to try it--and each one started to smile when they picked it up because it is so light and feels so solid and after a few rounds their grin was ear to ear--even the spec ops guys who built their own. When zeroing in my red dot, every grouping including the first was smaller than a silver dollar.

500+ rounds, no problems and very confident i have a quality product. Very easy to make fully ambidextrous. Glad i spent the few extra dollars to have the peace of mind knowing it was well spent.

Amazing Rifle and an amazing company. Up until now I own a few Colt and Sig AR's but have always heard great things about DD. After their decision to pull all of their products out of Academy Sports for the decision that they made, I instantly decided I have to support a company like DD. I cannot believe the quality of this rifle, and without even shooting it can say it is my favorite AR over my Colts and Sigs. I will be buying an v7 soon and a 300 SBR as soon as I can get my hands on one!!

The V11 is a great rifle.
This is a great rifle for anyone that is looking for a reliable, semi-automatic, and the full length rail on a mid-size rifle. I haven't had a single jam or flaw with the rifle to this day. Even with over 2000 rounds through my V11, I haven't been able to find any malfunctions that would stop the rifle from doing its job. If you happen to call Daniel Defense, you will see that the representatives care about the company. You will know that you are really being taken care of and you feel like a priority. Daniel Defense is the way to go and the V11 proves it. Now I finally know why officers around the country ask for Daniel Defense.

It is a great rifle that is perfectly balanced. The SLiM Rail™ makes the rifle very light on the front allowing for easy maneuverability and manipulation of the rifle. I was shocked at how little you felt the recoil compared to other AR models. I recommend this rifle to everyone, it's way better than any M16 or M4 that I have ever shot in the USMC.

Better than I even realized it would be.
I've had this rifle since they started shipping out the new DD made furniture at the start of 2015 so I've had a year with it and it is by far the best made gun I've ever held. The fit and finish are flawless even though I've been pretty rough on it it still keeps on going and gives me 1.3" groups with regular old federal XM855 and if I throw in some Black hills 77 Grain Sierra MatchKing the groups shrink to around 3/4 of an inch, very accurate.

The rail is very nice as well, the 15" keymod gives me 19.7" of sight radius on the magpul Mbus pro sight I installed. This makes 300 yard iron sight shots a breeze on torso sized targets. I also added an American Defense QD scope mount with a Ziess 3-9x42 power scope to make precision long range shots with almost boring regularity.

Overall there is no way I could ask for a better rifle, my buddies say I could have bought 3 AR15's for the price of this one Until I let them use it then they change their minds realizing that even though an M&P15 sport is a good gun its not DD good.

There is one problem I had with the gun recently the stock adjustment spring has apparently weakened and while shooting, it would start to move forward on me. After calling DD said they'd ship me out a new one at no cost to me. This is a side affect of getting some of first of the new furniture, there is now a stronger spring that does not do this. Apparently this was fixed 6 months after I got the rifle, but mine only started having problems after a year.

Its a steep price for a Mil-Spec rifle with a few upgrades but until you have one you don't know what a Quality AR15 is..........
