Calidad inigualable
Luego de 36 meses hoy escribo mi review, y de verdad es un rifle de primera clase, con un acabado extraordinario de color carakote resistente a rayados. La comodidad de la culata me encanta, mas aun los 4 Picatinny rail a todo lo largo, sus componentes internos de extrema dureza y resistencia. Lo utilizo para tiro a 200 yardas y en 3gun aunque no esta diseñado para esta modalidad responde fantástico, con cero problemas. Mi próxima compra ser un DDM11 PRO y DDM3 V7LW

Great gun!
I had a Steyr AUG to have a more compact 5.56. Saw the DDM4V5-S and loved it. Put an ACOG on it and it feels great and shoots awesome! I just sold my Steyr and this is now my go to rifle!

Wonderful rifle, just with Commiefornia would not make me change it.
I bought my rifle from Guns Direct in Burbank, CA. I am so glad I decided to go with Daniel Defense. My v5s only needed optics and I was ready to go in 30 minutes on my first trip to the range with it. Unfortunately, I live in Commiefornia, and need to remove the features that attracted me to the rifle. I'm already getting ready to buy one for my wife.

Top notch quality
Purchased my V5s at a local gun show a few weeks back, gotta say thing rifle is amazing! Hate to keep repeating what people say but you get what you pay for, this is top notch quality. Put 1000rds these past two weeks and no issues whatsoever. The mid length system does shoot a tad smoother but not that different. Great buy, love the look of my 14.5 barrel. It's sleek and compact, if you come across one just get it, you won't regret it!

Great rifle. Worth every penny. Buy the best and you can't be disappointed!
I bought this rifle as my first AR. It not only looks great but functions the same. My next will probably be a 308 just for hunting big hogs.

Performs flawlessly, it was my first and favorite AR15
Review by Jon / (Posted on 12/6/2016)
Outstanding quality, phenomenal value, great service
Received my V5s about 2 months ago and have only put about 250 rounds through it. Recently, was shooting out at 400 yrds, using a Sig Romeo 5 red dot, shooting 55 gr Tulammo. Accuracy was amazing for this 14.5" barrel, stock trigger, and inexpensive ammo.
