NRA – Daniel Defense Is Giving Away 11 DDM4 V7s During The Show

Friday, May 20th, 2016

Daniel Defense is giving 11 of their new DDM4 V7s during this weekend’s NRA Annual Meeting & Exposition.

It incorporates their new MFR XS rail system. It’s lighter than their earlier rails and has the strongest barrel lockup they’ve offered yet. Out toward the business end, you’ll notice their sling swivel adapter which can be configured at different locations along the M-Lok rail.

The V7 is also their first rifle with the new polymer dust cover. DD says it won’t dent or bend but rather pop back into place. It’s also lighter than metal alternatives.

Their weight savings in different areas have paid off. The V7 is 6.2 lbs with the lightweight variant at 6.05 lbs.
