Ambush® 6.8 (Realtree Xtra®)

Accurate, tough, and hard-hitting, Daniel Defense Ambush hunting rifles take the best aspects of Daniel’s battle proven designs and tailor fit them to the modern sportsman. Built around an 18” Cold Hammer Forged barrel, the Ambush 6.8 SPC features the modern SPEC II chamber dimensions to function safely with higher pressure loads. Shielding the barrel and mid-length gas system is the Daniel Defense MFR 15.0 free-floating handguard. With a continuous picatinny rail on top and M-Lok attachment on the sides and bottom, there is plenty of room for any accessory that your hunt may require. The barrel is threaded in 5/8”x24 and capped with a knurled thread protector which can be easily removed should you want to attach a suppressor or other muzzle device. Like all DD Ambush Hunting Rifles, it comes from the factory with a Geissele Super Semi-Automatic, 2-stage trigger and an ambidextrous safety selector. A BCM Mod 4 Charging Handle further enhances operating the rifle. The platform is finished off in a vivid hydro-dipped Realtree Xtra camo pattern. Ambush Rifles ship with the Daniel Defense Enhanced Pistol Grip and 6-Position Adjustable Buttstock. Backed by our 100% Satisfaction Guarantee.

Excellent rifle with perfect fit and a camo pattern that's perfect just about anywhere
I have a DDM4V7 in 6.8 and love it. It rides in my vehicle with me and is far better than my other options for a truck gun. When they started offering this configuration in Real Tree of course I had to get one. I use it for hunting, tracking, etc. and must say I have no fear of it letting me down when I need it most. It is the most accurate AR-15 I have ever owned. Once I set the zero on my scope I have been able to literally put bullets through the same hole over and over again. No wandering P.O.I with this rifle. The camouflage finish works perfectly for blending in. That 6.8SPC round with it's near .308 ballistics will put down anything i want to hunt, and has... If you have a hog or coyote problem and want to make quick work of it this will do it. I run 30 rounders through it when hunting hogs and let me tell you the hogs fear this rifle. With my silencer on it it is very pleasant to shoot and retains my hearing. I highly recommend this rifle.

I would recommend this firearm to anyone looking for a larger caliber hog gun. It's compact design makes it ideal for carrying in the field
This firearm is everything I thought it would be. Precision craftsmanship with a beautiful finish. Easy to sight in and very accurate. Can't wait to try it out on some hogs!

Great Rifle
This is a very accurate rifle that doesn't jam, nothing is loose and the trigger is excellent.
