The Flagship of AR-15's
This is the Flagship of AR-15's. Once you put one in your hands you will understand. The only things that I do not like are the DD Buttstock and the DD Pistol Grip\Trigger Guard. Easily removed and replaced with Magpul Buttstock and Pistol Grip\Trigger Guard. Add you favorite scope or Red Dot and some flip-up sights and you are ready to Rock 'N Roll !

love your product
I bought my DDM4V5 back in CA. I got it for 1,600. I put an Elcan Spectre DR 1x-4x magnification and have n
been able to shoot 2 liters at 742 yrds. consistanly with a 55 grain 223 remington. I love this weapon and love that it is American made. My boss finally ordered one for our store in Tucson AZ, SNG Tactical and I will do everything in my power to sell it and the new pistol's that you sell similar to your MK18. I love your products and will support your business.

You’ve scrolled past the order button go back up
I’ve had two DDM4V5 rifles setup with different scopes, eo tech, fixed magnification type optics(trijicon and vortex) multiple trigger setups from 3 gun to binary to two stage geissles and this is in my opinion the best rifle DD makes, muzzle brake comes off which is a must for me for shooting suppressed. I’ve easily put 20,000 rounds through my first one and 10,000+ in my new one and I have no complaints other than the new ones being ambi safety selector but that’s an easy fix. Lwrc, noveske, Black rain, colt might tell you they have the best rifles but they’re blowing smoke. Only one other company holds a candle to this rifle (small company, will not say) but with Daniels customer service you’d be a fool to buy elsewhere. Average shooters will never wear out or break this rifle in 2 lifetimes. Get the DDM4V5 or at least any 16” Daniel Defense rifle. Seriously.

Great Rifle, every time I take people to the range they always leave loving to shoot this rifle more than any other. The quality of Daniel Defense is second to none, I feel this rifle is going to last through my lifetime as well as my two boys and their future children. Price wise it is worth spending the money for a quality rifle. To many companies out there are making AR's and they simple don't put the time and effort that Daniel Defense does with each of their models.

Buying my first AR
I was in the market to buy my first ar. I wanted a good quality rifle that had a good reputation and a good warranty. I decided to buy the Daniel Defense V5 ( tornado grey ). I am so glad I spent a little more to get a Daniel Defense. My V5 is a joy to shoot. It is light weight, well made, comfortable, and looks bad a$$. I did a lot of research before buying and it really paid off. If you are looking to buy a rifle, but a Daniel Defense ( you will not be disappointed ).

TOP-NOTCH PRODUCT AND COMPANY
This is the best AR I've ever owned or shot!!! I own a DDM4V5, I've added and Aimpoint PRO Red Dot scope and Aim point 3x Magnifier scope. This gun is extremely accurate. I have never had a single problem with the rifle. It never jams, it shoots all ammo without a problem. I am proud that DD is American Made, that they are proudly head quartered here and that they employ folks locally. Top-Notch weapon, Top-Notch company!!! I couldn't be more happy!

All around top tier contender in the M4 field!
This rifle was built to shoot and add to. At a reasonable price one is able to purchase am M4 based rifle with gunsmith qualities out of the box. Only with a mag, the platform begs for your additions verses someone else's. The weight is good and the trigger is much smoother than all the triggers I evaluating prior to my purchase with out dropping another grand. The online and magazine reviews read DD was a solid purchase time and time again. Went through many, came home with it and dressed it to the T.

Daniel Defense - Trust Them With Your Lives!
This weapon is so incredibly well made, reliable, sturdy & balanced, as well as trustworthy, when being used for either plinking or competition that it literally speaks for itself and produces what can only be described as a concerto of precision ballistic masterpieces! I've used many M4 styled weapons for nearly 3 decades now & Daniel Defense is literally the most well rounded rifle that's produced by a company verses a gunsmith who custom builds rifles to users specs just to fit their desired systems. I dare say that there are few gunsmithing that could produce a product so well made from tip to toe that it's just remarkable how Daniel Defense pulls of what custom smith's cannot and in a production based business! I trust this weapon with my life and if you cannot state the same about what you use today, you need to rid yourself of doubt and fulfill your need for trust with a Daniel Defense weapon immediately. You cannot put a price on security, reliability, trust in the operation of a weapon or your very safety but Daniel Defense has a strong altough some see their prices as high, I beg those to ask themselves the same, "Do I completely trust the weapon I own to protect and preserve my and my loved ones lives?" If anyone hesitates with a reply of "Absolutely", they are gambling with their very lives as today's society has come to see far too many violent crimes escalating every single day we wake and if facing a life or death situation in any arena, public or private, I would never chose any other weapon than my Daniel Defense DDM4-V5 or any other Daniel Defense system! Save yourself the worry of if what you have can be both extremely accurate in firing while taking a beating in the field and invest in your safety both in pastime hobby shooting or ready for battle conditions with haging a Daniel Defense weapon at the ready! "DanieLte Defense builds my rifle, there are many like it but this one is mine, without my DDM4-v5 I am nothing and without me it is nothing!" Trust them with your lives because if they are properly used they will defend just that, your life!

Hooyah,

I am not an expert on weaponry such as the Daniel defense ar's. However I do have some idea of quality in workmanship. (After forty three years of gun buying I should.)
Outstanding. This is a rifle that will last a life time and can be handed down to your grandchildren. The barrel is bar none among the finest quality. This is one I intend to buy when my wife and I move to Florida.(Currently live in New York and I think you know the situation here.) Kudos on a job well done. Sincerely, Ron Pralgo

Great weapon --- ready to use --- deserves only the very best accessories.
This is an awesome weapon equipped ready to add to by someone who is not all that knowledgeable of, or wishing to work with, adding rails, covers, etc. With relatively little experience with this platform, even I have been able to satisfactorily mount and sight in wanted accessories including Vortex Viper PST and Venom scopes, Vickers sling, Atlas PSR bipod, ... I try to use DD hardware and only the best. God expects us to be good stewards, and such a fine weapon deserves special care. I am in process of mounting a Crimson Trace LINQ-L100 Laser. NOTE: I especially appreciate the CHRISTian stand of Founder and CEO, Martin Daniel, along with the company philosophy as a whole. It shoots very accurately. reliably, sweet...!

great hunting rifle
I was interested in getting an AR to use when I boar hunt and after much research I landed on this model as it had everything I was looking for. I have had mine now for a few years and very satisfied with my purchase, it has been instrumental on numerous hunts and hasn't let me down yet.

I have shot it quite a bit at the range and did end up making a few minor upgrades/mods to it. I swapped out the charging handle for a BCM Gunfighter as this had a better feel for me, I also added a pair of backup Magpul Gen2 MBUS sights, an EOTech XPS-3 holographic sight and a Magpul B.A.D. Lever.

Overall I have been enjoying my purchase and would recommend it to others.

Pros:
- forged 16" barrel with 1:7 twist
- mil spec with lots of upgrades
- vertical fore grip has a storage container
- adjustable buttstock & QD's

Cons:
- no sights or optics included
- some may say the cost (i didn't have a problem with it)

Awesome, Amazing, Priceless
These are my thoughts. This is my first AR weapon system. Aside from the fact that I think all AR platforms should come with a Lantac Dragon Muzzle Break to ensure accuracy with rapid firing, this weapon is amazing. I just tried my first 300 yd plus shot and out of 27 shots, I hit the target 19 times. First shot was on my fourth shot using only Magpull MBUS iron sights. This weapon system is easy to clean, no jamming issues, the rail is great for accessories. Absolutely will be purchasing your .308 model.

This is by far the most accurate and softest shooting AR in my safe!

DDM4V5 was the ultimate upgrade for me.
This is my 3rd AR. I've stepped up with each purchase. When I saw this DD M4 V5 in stock at my local gun store I was thrilled to trade up for it. After mounting an optic it took me 6 shots to zero it. I'll be taking it to a shooter expo next week and I expect to have a lot of admirers and bring home some trophies.

Love it
THE ABSOLUTE WORST DECISION I HAVE EVER MADE. Was not buying this rifle sooner. I have spent 4 years researching ar-15's I never really was a fan of them. Mainly because I prefer my bolt action rifles. And I prefer to take my shots at a distance (over 1000 yards). So after 4 years of research and trying to find a budget rifle that would handle the abuse I was about to give it I found one I liked. So I go to 2 different stores in Indiana and Pennsylvania. Both stores told me they used to carry the one I wanted but stopped carrying them because they could would and have fallen apart before ever being loaded. One told me that he sent back more than he sold because the barrels would come off in your hand straight from the box. And then to sent it up the way I was gonna set it up would have been an additional $400 or more. The second store I went to and he cane out and and showed me several rifles then he told me.about this rifle he had and I looked at it and fell in love. I paid a lot for this rifle. I took it home the next morning I took it to the range and put 2000 rounds through it. I had one major issue with this ridle. I ran out of ammo

You will not be disappointed
Went in to the store to purchase a different brand and nothing available. The guy behind the counter recommended the M4V5--for just a bit more. I was already thinking in that direction so the sale was easy.
As an ex-machinist and engineer I could not be more satisfied.
Yeah, I did have to buy iron sights, but they work for my needs. But I may upgrade to something else, just because I can.
Son and grandson love it (of course). I was, though, amazed at the heat generated. The barrel could be a branding iron.

Best M4 platform rifle on the market.
The first M4 platform rifle that I bought was a WW-15 from Windham Weaponry basically the Bushmaster replacement. I had a good time with the rifle and spent quite a bit of money upgrading it to a more custom platform. But after awhile I wanted a taste of the higher quality more expensive rifles basically so I could really see what all the fuss was about. I mean at the range I had heard talk about how smooth, accurate and reliable some of the upper eschilon rifles were. So I began a several month journey of researching and shooting some of the higher quality names in the business. In the several months I shot a LWRC, BCM, Daniel Defense and even a higher end Colt. I concluded based on several factors like fit,finish,price, ergonomics and overall quality that the Daniel Defense line of rifles was as good of rifle that was being built today. So I purchased my DDM4v5 and honestly this rifle has went through thousands of rounds and been beaten and banged up to hell and back. My DDM4 has been the farthest thing from a safe queen and I can say without hesitation the most impressive rifle in terms of overall capability I have ever had the pleasure of owning. Without a doubt I would recommend this rifle to the serious end user and I would put it up against any other manufacturer in the business. I know that a couple of there free float rails are used by the military but why they don't adopt this rifle in it's entirety is beyond me. The extra that you pay to own this rifle is made up for in quality and service life. Daniel Defense rifles are the best M4/AR15/M16 platform weapon systems in terms of overall functionality and quality on the market in my humble opinion.

Daniel Defense
I remember the first time I heard of Daniel Defense, I seen the ad that the NFL refused to air and being a disabled vet who lost an eye serving my country as a Grunt decided to research them and was impressed so much that bought a DDM4V5 and refused to watch the Superbowl!!!! Man, this thing drips quality! I have other top notch AR's but this is the only one I'd trust with my life. Great rifle,great company. Worth every penny and people do comment when they see it. It's that nice. Tack driver too!

great gun for money
I love this rifle, although it's my first I researched lots of dealers, customers, threads and this was not always brought up. I took it upon myself to research more and fell in love with the design and look of the rifle.
I have fired at targets and took it hog hunting this weekend and shot a nice 150 lb sow, it was accurate and deadly. No jams, shoots great and feels good in my hands which is the number one thing.
if you want a cracker box rifle you can find cheaper but if you want quality, save and spend the $ to get a solid rifle.

DDM4V5 Is Cadillac of AR15's
I just got my DDM4V5 a couple of days ago and love it! It is the best AR 15 platform I have shot and own and I have shot many different ones. This gun is tight on tolerances and it is a shooter! I love it

I think the price is just a tad high seeing that it doesn't come with at least stock iron sights. However the quality is phenomenal and the soft touch is great.

Top notch quality
My ddm4v5 is by far the nicest ar15 I have ever owned. lightweight, utterly reliable, and more accurate than most shooters will ever be. all in all my only complaint was the single pinned low profile gas block instead of double but even after many rounds I've had no issues what so ever. In any case DD knows what they're doing, I'm not the engineer anyhow. All I can say is if you haven't shot one shoot one. Shortly after that I can promise you'll want to own one. DD is my go to company for ar15's you can bet your life on.

Great gun at a good price
This is my first Daniel AR and my second AR. My other is a LWRC M6A2 AR, I like my Daniel every bit as well. Lighter easier to handle just a great gun.

Hard to understand how great until you use it and stretch its legs.
I've built a few ar15 rifles and always love the m4 profile. I still have my first m4 build. It functions fine but is not as sexy as these guns. I had an opportunity to get one and took it. I love the 1x7 heavy barrel shooting m855 surplus ammo its a tacdriver I shoot from 50 yards to 500 yards and she is consistent none stop. I reload match heavy ammo and it is laser guided accurate. It's ergonomics are great every part of the rifle in fit and finish is superb. I think this gun will last generations with proper care. I put a HHS on it with mag pull mbus pro sights. Even those were near dead on after mounting them. The HHS needed a tad more adjustment. My first store bought gun in this price point but well worth it I got it January 2015. Thanks DD for making such a fine tool.
