Black Creek, GA- February 17, 2016. Daniel Defense, manufacturer of the world’s finest firearms and accessories, is offering its DD5V1 7.62mm (.308) rifle in two new durable Cerakote finishes. In addition to basic black, this best-selling rifle is now also available with a gray-colored Daniel Defense Tornado® finish and a Mil Spec +® finish, which is a tan or earth color.
The DD5V1 is a groundbreaking, performance-driven platform that established a whole new standard in the .308 platform. Its design incorporates over a decade of expertise from industry-leading Daniel Defense engineers and designers. With innovative features like a 4-bolt connection system, an optimized upper receiver, an improved bolt carrier group, ambidextrous controls, a configurable modular charging handle, and a Cold Hammer Forged (CHF) barrel, the DD5V1 took 7.62 rifles built around the traditional AR platform to a whole new level. And with a weight of only 8.3 pounds, the DD5V1 represents one of the lightest, most maneuverable .308 DMRs (designated marksman rifles) ever built.
DD5V1 rifles with Daniel Defense Tornado® or Mil Spec +® Cerakote finishes have an MSRP of $3,198, while black-finished models retail for $3,044. They are available for purchase from authorized Daniel Defense firearm dealers or directly from Daniel Defense at danieldefense.com.
