Daniel Defense has announced the release of several new products: DDM4v11 Series Rifles, MK18 Pistol and 300 Blackout Pistol.

Today, they introduced the DDM4v11 series of rifles with the newly designed SLiM Rail™ 15.0, their first rail system featuring the KeyMod attachment system. The V11 is available with the 16-inch Government, 16-inch Lightweight, or 18-inch Strength-to-Weight (S2W®) barrel. The SLiM Rail™, which is an acronym for Slim Lightweight Modular, will be available for individual sale at a later date.

Daniel Defense is also releasing the MK18 Pistol and 300 Blackout Pistol. The MK18 Pistol is very similar to the MK18 Factory SBR—popular in the law enforcement and special operations communities—with a 10.3” barrel that is classified as an SBR (short-barreled rifle) under the National Firearms Act. The 300 Blackout Pistol, chambered in 300 AAC Blackout, also comes with a 10.3” barrel. Both pistols are designed with a 1.15” Diameter Pistol Receiver Extension opposed to a Mil-Spec receiver extension and buttstock and are not NFA regulated items.

These products are shipping to dealers now and will be available for purchase online soon.

Daniel Defense Sues Remington/DPMS For Trademark Infringement

Monday, June 30th, 2014

Georgia-based Daniel Defense has filed suit in US District Court against Remington Outdoor Company and DPMS for alleged trademark infringement and deceptive trade practices. DD seeks unspecified damages and recovery of legal costs as well as an injunction preventing Remington or DPMS from using the marks in the future and to destroy all materials bearing them.

Daniel Defense claims trademark of the term “Lighter. Stronger. Better.” which it has used since 1996. It has also trademarked the “>>” chevron, a V-shaped pattern in use since 2012.

DD Xray

Remington’s subsidiary DPMS has been using the term “Lighter, Stronger and even more badass” and “Lighter, Stronger and every bit as accurate as the original” which DD alleges confuses consumers due to the similarity of products.

The Cerakote finish is the second new color option Daniel Defense has launched this calendar year. Mil Spec +, a flat dark earth variation, was first unveiled at SHOT Show in Las Vegas, Nevada, in January. “When you look for a new car, you have substantially more color options than just black,” noted Jordan Hunter, Daniel Defense Director of Marketing. “Customers want choices other than the mil-spec Type III hard coat anodizing, or matte black, and the Daniel Defense Tornado™, we believe, will be well received by our customers.”

Retail price for the first two Daniel Defense Tornado™ rifles will be $1819, and will include the new Daniel Defense Buttstock and Pistol Grip, also new to the DD line of products for 2014.

Warrior Expo – Daniel Defense

Wednesday, March 5th, 2014

At SHOT Show, Daniel Defense introduced their Rock & Lock attachment system for Mil Std 1913 rails. They’re showing it at Warrior Expo as a simple to use means to attach accessories to M4s. This new design moves from a separate clamp and mount to a single-piece design.

This is the 1 O’Clock offset mount and as you can see, it’s a one-piece design with a single, flat-tip tightening bolt.

This is the new Offset Flashlight mount. This model is a bit more streamlined with the light closer to the boreline.

And this little beauty is a Rail Mount QD Swivel Attachment Point. I don’t know how many times I’ve picked up a carbine with nowhere to attach a sling. This QD Attachment Point is anti-rotation and fits right to the rail. A few twists of a screwdriver and it’s in place, where you want it.

These are low cost solutions that allow the shooter to quickly adapt new accessories to his carbine. Check them out.

Daniel Defense Announces $20 Million Expansion To Better Meet Demand

Friday, January 24th, 2014

Black Creek, GA – January 23, 2014 - Daniel Defense, engineering and manufacturing the world’s finest weapons systems, precision rail systems and accessories, today announced plans for a five-year, $20 million expansion in Bryan County, Georgia.

“We are proud to be among the nation’s fastest growing private companies according to Inc. 500|5000 Magazine,” says Marty Daniel, President and CEO of Daniel Defense. “Maintaining the level of growth we’ve experienced over the last 10 years requires a long term vision, continued momentum, while maintaining the level of quality expected by our customers.”

At the conclusion of the 5-year, multi-million dollar expansion, Daniel Defense will have expanded to over 100,000 square feet of manufacturing and administrative space in Bryan County. “This is yet another step toward bringing every part of the manufacturing process in-house, which will in turn give us ultimate control over quality assurance,” exclaimed Daniel.

Daniel Defense moved its operations to Bryan County in 2009 with the opening of its now 47,000 square foot facility. The long-term project would not be the first size increase for the Georgia-based company. They expanded operations to a 90,000 square foot facility in Ridgeland, South Carolina, in 2012. With flourishing interest for the name brand precision firearms, parts and accessories, the planned increase will enable them to meet growing demand while maintaining a first-rate customer service experience.
