- accurate and reliable Review by arforlife
I have owned four AR's thus far and have had nothing, but problems with them. Each one would jam jam jam. So I put a gas piston system in one of them thinking it would solve my problems. After my first shot the thing jammed so hard it took 20 minutes to clear it. I put that sucker back in its case and told myself that I was done with the AR platform.
I saw a DD sitting there at my gun club and contemplated whether I should take the plunge and get it. I had dealt with Daniel Defense in the past and was impressed with the customer service. I remember after I dealt with your company, I told myself, if I ever bought another AR, it would be from you.
Well to make a long story short I bought it. The next week I went to the range and fired about a 1K rounds threw it.
Guess what happened? Not, one jam, malfunction, problem ect! I called up my buddy who owns a few Ar's and he didn't believe me. So I took him to the range the following weekend. He was so impressed he traded in his colt to get one.
The company's customer service is awesome, the gun is accurate and reliable. I would recommend this gun to anyone (Posted on 3/22/11)
- Wow! I'm hooked! Review by Speedyfreek
The DDM4 V1 was the first new M4 platform I ever owned, and after trying out several competitors over some 20 years and 6 years in 2nd LAAD Bn. I am pretty familiar with the m16/ar15 platform. I am aware of its stregths and weaknesses, and I believe the guys at DD do to. Many of the platforms weaknesses were addressed and over come in the DDM4 and as the company grows, I eagerly wait for more innovations from them in the future. Bottom line in this, these guys love there ar's as much as we do and there pride and craftmanship are evident in everything they make. If you want the best bang for your buck you just found it.
Buy one before "they" say you can't! Then learn how to use it. It will serve you well as long as you serve it well. (Posted on 3/13/11)
- Ddm4 good value? Review by Zen marksman
I recently purchased a ddm4. I did quite a bit of research on the ar platform. I asked opinions of various gun dealers and gun enthusiasts. The bottom line is if you buy a entry level ar and have the intention of upgrading it, that is when it becomes a real considerstion to just buy a factory high end mil spec ar.
Daniel defense has a great reputation in the industry. They build products of the highest quality, in materials and the manufacturing end of it as well.
If you calculate a entry ar at about 700 then you have to add a rail and upgrade the barrel and internals most of the time. Younwill have more into a upgraded entry level rifle than if you had just bought the ddm4. It is 100% mil spec out of the box. No games here just a high quality rifle built right from the factory.
Most people that buy a ddm4 dont do a thing to it other than a sling and maybe change the grip due to personal preferance.
The intermals are all done and they are tight and smooth. What a fit. You can see the quality when you open up the reciever.
It has a cold forged barrel with A 1/7 twist , chrome lined m4 feed ramp. Properly staked gas key, flaired magwell, h buffer, the list goes on.
What a value. If you do the math you cant touch the price buying the accessories one at a time. Plus younwould have to almost change the whole rilfe to get it up to the ddm4 level. But then why do it.
If you want a Entry level ar and are going to do nothing to it, then go for it, most rifles made today are built to do the job for home and personal
But ahh, if you want to step up to the tactical mil spec dance then why not get the best bang for the buck rifle out there. The ddm4 is it. No tinkering with the thing, its done and done right. Read the complete spec. Breakdown of this rifle.it will blow you away at what you get in this great little package.
Plus did i mention that daniel defense offers a lifetime warrenty on the rifle. Wow try and beat that. You wouldnt want to change anything, daniel defense is so confident that this rifle is put together right that they back with a lifetime warrenty.
Bottom line is nothing cheap on this rifle and it takes the guessing game out of wondering which is the best pairing of lower and upper and will it funtion correctly i. The time of battle.
The ddm4 is built to perform in battel and have tactical superiority out of the box. (Posted on 2/24/11)
- Kick Ass Review by Mitch
- In a nutshell...an absolute joy to shoot. Dead on straight out of the box. Light and easy to control. Has every thing except the light. Daniel Defense did right by this rifle. Daniel Defense has a loyal customer from here on out. In other words the DDM4v1 is one KICK ASS PIECE OF HARDWARE. (Posted on 2/15/11)
- Fantastic M4 Review by RCAFLYFISHING
- Just purchased my Daniel Defense M4 today - The fit, function and feel of this rifle is fantastic. Added a EOTech 517 to increase the versatility but love the fixed front and removable rear mechanical sights. My DDM4 is going to be my new go to gun! (Posted on 2/12/11)
- Best out of the box M4 on the market Review by Tom
Out of the box, you cannot beat the DDM4 V1. IT has everything you need, nothing you don't. THe front sight is as robust as they come, the rear sight is excellent. Everything on this rifle is well thought out. The fit and finish are excellent. I've shot the shit out of ine and can say this is the best rifle I have ever purchased.
Love the omega X-rail 12.0 FSP; I can finally get a comfortable grip and still have my surefire X300 at 12:00 o'clock or 3 o'clock. The extended rail eliminates a good eal of barrel shadowing, mounted at th 12 o'clock, there is virtually no barrel shadow at all.
The CS department is great, always there to answer my questions, and help me out in any way. They truly have gone above and beyond; they emobody the old style of customer serrvice where the customer is thone that matters, and is served properly.
Lifetime warranty, satisfaction guarantee, everything (MAjor components) made in house at DD.
It is a great rifle, Can't wai tto see a 7.62X51 battle rifle from you guys (hint Hint!)
Thanks for the great rifle an the great company.
