Sneak Peek – Global War on Terror (GWOT) Rifle Package from Daniel Defense

Tomorrow, 6 June 2023, Daniel Defense is releasing an exclusive Global War on Terror (GWOT) rifle package which is based on an upgraded M4A1 RIII and includes a Blue Force Gear Vickers Sling, Magpul MBUS Pro flip-up sights, a Mil-Spec Flat Dark Earth (FDE) Cerakote finish on the rifle’s RIII rail instead of anodizing, custom Global War on Terror engraving on the lower, and a matching commemorative challenge coin. This isn’t the rifle you carried, it’s better.

I spent and afternoon on the range with the GWOT rifle and it’s everything you’d expect from Daniel Defense and more. DD guns are rock solid, reliable builds that incorporate lessons learned from their military and LE contracts. In fact, it’s that experience that makes this rifle so special. The US military and our Allies have used multiple Daniel Defense weapons and parts during the GWOT.

Since their founding around the sunset of the Assault Weapons Ban, Daniel Defense has been based near Pooler, Georgia, but they didn’t open their own dedicated factory until 2009. For a time they also manufactured in Ridgeland, South Carolina, but in 2017, they consolidated all of their operations in the state of-the-art, 300,000 Sq ft facility you see here. They manufacture everything themselves except for a few small parts like springs and fasteners in-house and have begun to integrate additive manufacturing for their suppressor line.

Daniel Defense wanted to honor those who served to protect our nation with a special price on these rifles. In a statement, Daniel Defense Founder/Executive Chairman Marty Daniel said, “This is our way of honoring and thanking the brave men and women who serve—and have served—this great country of ours.”

Daniel Defense tells me it will only be available for purchase by active-duty and retired military and law enforcement professionals, U.S. veterans, and those who diligently and selflessly served our nation in times of need.

They also want me to let you know that to see pricing and order the GWOT rifle package, you must first create an account and provide your military or law enforcement credentials or proof of service to [email protected]. The rifle goes on sale 6 June 2023, and the sale runs through Independence Day, July 4.
