DDM4®V9®

The new Daniel Defense DDM4V9 is designed to satisfy the needs of modern shooters not only in popular shooting sports but also for tactical and defensive applications.  The long, 15” DDM4 quad rail over a 16” cold hammer forged Government profile barrel gives the operator the option to have the support hand extended out close to the muzzle allowing them to drive the gun more precisely, and preventing 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.  The longer rail also affords the shooter plenty of real estate for optics and accessories and allows for maximum sight radius for accurate shooting with rail mounted iron sights.  This rifle also comes with the newly designed, rugged and comfortable Daniel Defense Buttstock and Pistol Grip.

Pretty looks don't really cut it
Everything in the description is pretty spot on...with a less than desired mil-spec trigger. Bottom line is if you have a lousy trigger, you have an average rifle.

Best quality rifle value I've found. You won't be sorry.
Bought the LW version last year. My first AR. After much research I kept coming back to DD. Upon purchasing and receiving, I took it to the range after installing DD BUIS. I was hitting steel at 200+ continuously which is not bad for my older eyes! Can't wait to mount a scope and reach out a bit further.

It doesn't get any better than this!
Fantastic rifle in every way! Superb quality, well balanced, and ultra reliable. Rugged and robust. Not a single complaint with this rifle. The price is higher than most others, but you simply get what you pay for. The value is there, 100%.
Not only is this rifle top notch, Daniel Defense as a company is even better (from the perspective of this paying customer). I contacted DD with a simple question, and got a prompt response with a solution that far exceeded my expectations. There will be more Daniel Defense products in my future!

Commitment to quality
This was my first AR I had ever bought. I have had and still own, other semi-auto center fire rifles. I must tell you that since this purchase I now have a few other ar's including a few I built myself. However my Daniel is still my go to. With so many choices out there and quality built rifles it was hard to make a choice. I had it narrowed down to BCM, LWRC, and DD. I wanted my first AR to be a quality built rifle that I would only need to buy once. I came in to the market with the theory that, I would rather spend a little more and get it right then spend less and buy twice. Let me speak for myself here, my choice to go with my ddm4 v9 may have been one of the better purchases in my adult life. This rifle shoots 1 moa groups @ 100yds with flip ups! I truly believe that the Daniel Defense name means high quality at a competitive price. this will not be my last DDM4 style rifle I will buy. The only thing I would like to suggest is this. MARTY DANIEL if you read this, I think that some sort of loyalty program for us working American men and women patriots out there would be fundamentally game changing in the industry. You purchase a Daniel Defense complete rifle and your next purchase is 10% off. It would promote more business while at the same time rewarding the consumers who purchase and depend upon your products.

If you have the money don't think twice
I just received the m4v9, fit and finish is outstanding. No play between receivers, and I'm blown away by how light this rifle is with a 15" quad rail. Though I am extremely pleased and would recommend this or any DD model to anyone, I do wish it came with sights for the price.

Great gun,quality, & the fit & finish is second to none.
I bought the ddm4v9lw in grey. It was my first ar style rifle and I wanted a name and Quality I could bet my life on if needed. What I got was nothing short of exceptional, fit and finish, great accuracy, a good warranty, my only gripe is that I'd prefer a better trigger & iron sights to come with it. I am very pleased as I wanted to have one rifle I knew I could always found on should the need for it arise. I am very happy with my purchase & will be a repeat customer. As I wish I would've know about the s2w version as I'd have preferred the longer 18" barrel, however accuracy is no slouch out of my 16".

No Remorse A+++ quality!!!
I've owned 2 of these guns for 3 yrs. my son owns one and a friend also has a V9. We absolutely love Daniel Defense and would recommend these guns over and over for a high end M4 at a moderate price. They have yet to fail in performance and sex appeal!
Top notch in my review and the only regret is I didn't purchase it sooner!
Thanks guys for a quality product!

Great rifle, wanted a v1 but any DD rifle was a good rifle.
The price point on these rifles is sometimes hard to swallow, but they are the best rifles out there. When going from gun store to gun store searching for any Daniel Defense rifle i could find, every clerk said the same thing two things "Man, you know quality" and "these rifles are the best factory rifles we carry". I'm very happy with my rifle, but a little miffed that they don't come standard with iron sights.

Fantastic Quality!
Daniel Defense rifles are fantastic...seriously! I should know I own two. I've shot Rock River Arms, Stag, Colt, DPMS but they don't compare to DD. No complaints other than the price but I quickly overlooked that once I held the V9 for the first time.

What a weapon!
What a weapon. As a prior service member, using what politicians say is acceptable for our men and women living and dying on the front lines...they are wrong! Our forces deserve nothing less than a Daniel Defense. So many ARs require a different trigger. Why would anyone out out a weapon with the most important part of the function less than acceptable. With Daniel Defense this isn't the case. The trigger is more than acceptable, giving just enough lead-in to the break. Using XM855 laying prone I was able to get hit after hit on 12 inch steel out to 700 yards. I wasn't trained as a sniper so for me this is very good. Using cheap TulAmmo for rapid target acquisition drills to 50 yards resulted in not a single malfunction. The attention to detail in the firing system really shows its quality in the more than 2000 rounds I have put through it without a single malfunction. What a weapon.

D.D. Impressive Quality
All of my friends have different types of AR's; but I wanted Daniel Defense. They said I was crazy, it's just another rifle. From the moment I open the case I was impressed, and the moment I shot it, I was speechless. But the moment "they" saw it, I WAS PROUD. One of the best performing AR'S I have experienced. Them too!

Absolutely Perfect
I bought mine new and it was absolutely flawless out of the box. Not a mark on it, the whole rifle is (fit, finish) could not be better and i am not exaggeratting. I've owned many AR-15's and every other AR i'v ever owned (new) came with scuff marks here and there. As for this rifle, i could not pick out an imperfection on it if i tried. As far as shooting? It shoots as good as it looks. I've got over 5,000 rounds through it so far and haven't had a single issue. It fires everything from cheap russian crap to high dollar match ammo with ease. This rifle is built like a tank.

Best in the business
What a great rifle and set up. I am not a fan of the keymod, this just adds another attachment that could come loose, not line up or something no go right. When you want to attach something you have to find the right part for the item you want to attach. If you are mission specific and change out accessories like playing with dolls, that could get expensive to get the kemod part. The 1913 rail to me is the ultimate, and have 15" of real estate on 4 sides is plenty for my uses. I love that the rail covers the whole barrel. Great for spacing out your accessories and space on how you can hold your rifle with different grip styles. I have not had any return to zero issues when changing out sights or lasers. Also, having the QD machined into the rail is another nice setup. The part I do not like is the buttstock, mine is loose already. That is where magpul has the advantage, where you can lock that stock into place, please fix this. Everything else with the stock is gravy! Also, maybe think about shortening up the vertical grip. This firearm has been flawless where it counts, making it go bang. Various types of ammunition according to caliber, weight and bullet type, not one issue. Very accurate and soft shooting with the mid-length gas system. This rifle is made like a tank, you cannot go wrong with this model. I would love to see the rifles come out in a few more popular cerakote colors.

Amazing weapon
What an amazing weapon ! My first AR and perhaps my last , I have already shot 400 rounds since the first of the year. I was very surprised at the accuracy. Have enjoyed adding "essentials " such as iron flip down sights, 3X scope, light, and bipod! When I go to the range, I never fail to start out at our indoor 100 yard lanes! I feel like posting my target! I struggle to regain my AR when my son shoots with me. I have multiple high quality rifles, shotguns and handguns. So far, I'm most proud of my DD M4v9

DDM4 V9
The DDM4 V9 is a great rifle and very accurate, for the cost of the rifle there are many other options out there that offer great quality as well for a much more affordable price. The trigger is definitely a mil spec trigger that is rough and has a lot of creep and grit feel to it. It would be nice if the rifle came with some iron sights for what the rifle costs as well. Overall I am pleased with the rifle quality except for the trigger pull and rifle cost. I own a variety of AR-15 style rifles and this one would probably be about the 4th best on the list with all things concidered.

Great Rifle
This is my 2nd DDM4 but it is my first rifle with the new furniture. I think it was a mistake ditching the standard Magpul furniture in lieu of the new setup. I gave it a test run for a month and upgraded the trigger guard, stock, and grip back to the traditional Magpul set up I grew to love. That's really the only negative thing I have to say about this rifle and its solely because of the extra cost added by swapping the furniture out. The rail is phenomenal and frankly I want to put it on all my rifles. Overall this is a fantastic addition to the family and I will definitely be buying more from Daniel Defense in the upcoming years. Great Job Marty and Team! Keep driving the industry by setting such high standards.
