Monday, September 22nd, 2014

The Daniel Defense MK12 — introduced at SHOT Show this year — with an 18-inch stainless steel barrel and rifle length gas system, is now being offered in the Daniel Defense Tornado finish. The gray cerakote is not the only visual difference on this Special Purpose Rifle. The stainless steel, MK12 profile barrel has a bead blasted, chemically passivated finish that resembles the base metal. “We’ve invested a lot of man hours and capital toward development of the MK12,” noted Jordan Hunter, Director of Marketing for Daniel Defense. “The New Tornado finish and bead blasted, stainless steel barrel provide this precision firearm with a new appeal.”

“We’re also happy to publicize that the V11 is now available in our new finishes,” Hunter continued. The DDM4v11, which features Daniel Defense’s SLiM Rail™, their first rail system with the KeyMod attachment method, is available in Mil Spec+, Tornado as well as Black. “Demand since the release of the V11 has been exceedingly strong. With the encouraging response to these distinct finishes, making them available on this firearm is a no-brainer.”

Thursday, September 18th, 2014

Black Creek, GA, September 17, 2014 – Daniel Defense, engineering and manufacturing the world’s finest weapons systems, precision rail systems and accessories, has been ranked Number 1568 by Inc. magazine on its 33rd annual Inc. 500/5000.

The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy—America’s independent entrepreneurs. Daniel Defense, a Georgia-based company and leader in the firearms community, is honored to be included again for 2014. Companies such as Yelp, Pandora, Timberland, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, LinkedIn, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained early exposure as members of the Inc. 500|5000.

“Daniel Defense has again been recognized by Inc. 500|5000 as one of the fastest-growing private companies in the United States,” said Marty Daniel, President and CEO of Daniel Defense. “This is the third consecutive year we have been recognized with this prestigious distinction. I am particularly proud that we achieved this goal while installing the infrastructure for long term growth and because it is more difficult to grow at this pace as a mid-size company. Even more exciting than reaching this goal, is that now we have the infrastructure in place in our design, prototyping, manufacturing engineering, manufacturing, quality, MRP, accounting, marketing and sales. We are ready to execute our 5, 10 and 20 year growth plans.”

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 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 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.”
