SOF Select 18 – RIS III by Daniel Defense

Wednesday, May 23rd, 2018

You may recall the IMR-Blue concept photo in the recent story about Air Force Small Arms modernization.

While not exactly the clearest of photos, you can discern that the rail isn’t something we’ve seen before. Turns out it’s a new DD rail variant, designed specifically to inform a sources sought inquiry by a Marine Corps Element. They required fixed Picatnny rail at 3, 6 and 9 o’clock st the business end, along with M-Lok along the rest of the rail.

Internally, DD is calling it RIS III Red. It’s their first hybrid rail. It uses the same six bolt attachment as the RIS II, which the Army’s SEP program determined as best in categories of durability and reliability during a recent test of Free Float Rails for the M4 carbine.

Daniel Defense Offers DD5V1 Rifle in Two New Cerakote Finishes

Sunday, February 19th, 2017

DD5V1_MSP_Ang6_02-150-07186-047

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.

DD5V1_Tor_Ang2_02-150-07337-047

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.

SHOT Show 17 – Daniel Defense DDM4V7S

Monday, January 23rd, 2017

Although there was plenty to check out in Daniel Defense’s rather large booth, the DDM4V7S caught the eye of more than one member of the gun press.

This 5.56 carbine weighs 5.8 lbs and sports a 11.5″ Cold Hammer Forged barrel with a Government profile and carbine length gas system.  It’s topped off with a DD Flash Suppressor.

Note the Daniel Defense furniture which includes Collapsible Buttstock, Pistol Grip and Vertical Fore Grip as well as 32 round magazine.

I’ve long been a fan of DD’s Rock and Lock Fixed Front and Rear sights. They are solid and easy to install making them great back up sights. Based on the A1-style, they are simple to adjust and are always there when you need them.

This close up shows you how the MFR XS 10″ rail attaches.

Daniel Defense firearms and accessories are available for unit and agency purchase through ADS.
