Daniel Defense 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.

Personal opinion
Top build quality AR. Fit and finish are flawless, however for the price they ALL should come with sights.

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.

Best rifle I've ever owned. Had a trip to DD in Georgia last year and it was an awesome time. My DDM4 V9 is my pride in my gun collection

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.

Outstanding reliability
I absolutely love this rifle. Outlasted my AK47 with less rounds through it.
Review by Drew / (Posted on 3/4/2016)
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

Very impressed with this rifle!
Review by Yes / (Posted on 2/27/2016)
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.
