DDM4V5 300

Daniel Defense is now offering the .300 Blackout version of their popular DDM4V5 unveiled at SHOT Show 2012. The carbine includes the new DDM4 rail we showed last week which incorporates a 4-bolt pattern clamp. The .300 Blackout (7.62 x 35) cartridge has seen increased popularity recently due to its ballistics which are similar to 7.62 x 39. However, the .300 round can be used in an AR platform with the correct barrel and fit a standard 5.56mm magazine. This means you use the same platform you’ve been training on and same manual of arms you are accustomed to. There’s no need to adopt an entirely new weapon.

The recoil is slightly more than a 5.56mm weapon and cartridge manufacturers offer a variety of loads to include subsonic rounds for use with suppressors.

Features include –
-Upper Receiver: Mil-Spec with Indexing Marks and M4 Feed Ramps
-Barrel: Cold Hammer Forged, 1:8 twist, 16″ S2W Profile, Carbine Gas System, MP tested, and Salt Bath Nitride Finished
-Chamber: 300 AAC Blackout
-Flash Hider: Daniel Defense Flash Suppressor
-Bolt Carrier Group: Mil-Spec MP Tested, Properly Staked Gas Key
-Gas Block: Daniel Defense Pinned Low Profile Gas Block
-Handguard: Daniel Defense DDM4 Rail 12.0
-Vertical Grip: Daniel Defense A2 Styling Vertical Grip
-Rail Cover: (3) Daniel Defense low profile rail ladders
-Weight(no sights): 7lbs 1oz
-Available with or without sights
-Made in the USA!

Considering that the .300 Blackout cartridge is idea for use with a suppressor, it would be great if Daniel Defense would offer a suppressor compatible flash hider.

    Well, the A2 flash hider is compatible with Gemtech HALO. Well, actually it’s the other way around, but still…

    Ha, show’s what I know. The HALO isn’t offered in 7.62. There’s always the screw on option…

    I just got one of these! I have yet to fire it due to my business travel but I’m excited for the chance to see how it compares to my Colt 5.56 rifle.
