Wednesday, October 19th, 2016

Black Creek, GA- October 19, 2016 – Daniel Defense, manufacturer of the world’s finest firearms and accessories, announced today that they would be expanding their operations in Bryan County, creating 75 new jobs and investing $18.5 Million into a new facility and equipment. The new expansion is set to be finished late summer of 2017.

“DD was founded by Marty Daniel over a decade ago in Chatham County. In 2009, DD scaled their operations and moved into a larger facility in Bryan County. As a result of a continued increase in production demand, DD will consolidate their Bryan County and Ridgeland, South Carolina facilities into one operation,” said Governor Nathan Deal.

“This consolidation will streamline our operational efficiencies on many different levels and will allow us to continue to grow our team,” said President/CEO Marty Daniel. “It is very important that we attract, hire, and retain exceptional talent, and this new facility will allow us to do just that, and continue to accelerate our market share in the firearms business.”
The expansion will create jobs in all areas including these categories: machining, engineering, assembly and marketing.

AUSA – LWRC International CSASS

Friday, October 7th, 2016

Although LWRC International didn’t submit a candidate for the US Army’s Compact Semi Automatic Sniper System solicitation, they did develop one. This is their solution.

Obviously, this 12″ gun is chambered in 7.62 NATO. Now get this, it has a 20 position gas block. You should be able to run just about any ammo, suppressed or unsuppressed. It’s a monoforged upper receiver with an LWRCi NiCorr treated spiral fluted barrel. The CSASS comes standard with LWRCi Skirmish Back-Up Iron Sights. The lower is fully ambidextrous including bolt catch and release, magazine release and selector lever. The trigger is a Geissele SSA Two-Stage Precision model.

MDM – Geissele Automatics Bayonet Mount

Thursday, September 29th, 2016

The M-4/16 has a bayonet lug just below the barrel due to a requirement that it has the ability to mount a bayonet. Unfortunately, that lug gets in the way when you want to use an extended handguard.

When Geissele was developing their submission for the cancelled M-4A1+ RFI, they decided to develop this Bayonet Mount which attaches to a Picatinny rail section at the bottom of a handguard.  

This frees up a lot of real estate.
