The Daniel Defense DDM4V7S is our latest short-barreled rifle (SBR) to feature the M-LOK® attachment technology with the Daniel Defense MFR 10.0 rail. Built around a free-floating, Cold Hammer Forged 11.5” barrel, the V7S delivers optimal maneuverability, reliability, accuracy, and terminal ballistics using a wide variety of ammunition. The carbine length gas system provides smooth and reliable cycling under harsh conditions and reduces perceived recoil. A free-floating MFR 10.0 rail offers incredible weight savings as well as superior cooling, ergonomics, and modularity while maintaining the strength and durability expected from Daniel Defense. With the M-LOK attachment points that run along 7 positions and an uninterrupted 1913 Picatinny rail on top, the V7S has plenty of room for sights, optics, and accessories the user may require. Pairing an 11.5” barrel and the MFR 10.0 rail also ensures compatibility with a wide variety of muzzle devices and sound suppressors for even more rifle customization. This platform comes standardly equipped with our rugged and extremely comfortable Daniel Defense Buttstock and Pistol Grip.

My New Rifle Company
I love this rifle. I've been doing my research and I got to tell you I am truly empressed by this company's high quality in what you guys put in your rifles. I plan on picking this one for my first AR. I believe in a good named company and I believe I found one in you guys. In a nut shell I'm picking up a total of four rifles in the next three months and most certainly will be picking from your line up, see you guys soon. Aka Jay-shot.

Great Quality,Fit and Finish. Great company, Thanks Daniel Defense.
Ive gotten so many budget AR's then putting alot of money in them to make the nice. So for my birthday I decided to go buy me a nice AR for once. I bought this V7 from Gander mountain for a great price since there was a sale on weapons at gander. I was really happy with my purchase after going home and checking out what sets this AR from the other ones i own and build.

The rifle is put together really well with top notch materials, you can see it and feel it. After i heard that DD pulled out of Academy because of what they did, I was more than happy to buy from DD.

Only gripe I have about this rifle is it doesnt have any flip up sights or any sights at all, so i guess its called optics ready? I wanted to go to the range immediately after the purchase but instead I had to go home and grab a back up red dot so i can go to the range.

Proud and Pride.
Best in the market gun range and then some. I have nothing but good things to say about this company. I'd say that Daniel Defence has come a long way in very little time. Pride and Proud is the key!
