For a limited time, active-duty and retired military and law enforcement personnel, as well as U.S. military veterans, can order a special-edition Daniel Defense M4A1 RIII rifle commemorating their service during the Global War On Terror (GWOT).

From Daniel Defense Founder/Executive Chairman Marty Daniel, “This is our way of honoring and thanking the brave men and women who serve — and have served — this great country of ours. The GWOT rifle package is available exclusively for military and law enforcement customers and won’t be offered to the general public. It’s an upgrade of our best-selling M4A1 RIII at a special price point.”

An M4A1 RIII rifle chambered in 5.56mm NATO, the exclusive GWOT package includes a Blue Force Gear Vickers Sling and Magpul MBUS Pro flip-up sights, and the RIII handguard/rail features a Mil-Spec Flat Dark Earth (FDE) Cerakote finish. The right side of the lower receiver is decorated with a custom Global War On Terror engraving and inscribed with the words, “Selfless Service”. The rifle is built with Daniel Defense’s proven components, including: 14.5-inch cold-hammer forged barrel; mid-length gas system; ambidextrous controls (safety, magazine release and bolt catch); Grip-N-Rip charging handle; and a lightweight but durable 12.5” RIS III rail/handguard with plenty of M-LOK attachment points for accessories.

As Editor In Chief Eric Poole (U.S. Marine Corps) notes, “When veterans think back to the fixed-carry-handle M16A2 and M4 issued to troops before 9/11, rifles such as Daniel Defense’s special-edition M4A1 RIII Global War On Terror remind us of the collective ingenuity that occurs when Americans are called to unite in the defense of freedom. While maintaining the general ergonomics of the AR-15, every detail is an enhancement developed from battlefield experience. From the nostalgic color of the 12 ½-inch RIS III rail, calling back to the Mk18 and M4A1, to the Blue Force Gear Vickers Sling that was standard issue, Daniel Defense’s exclusive GWOT rifle is a commendable salute to every veteran’s service.”

Executive Editor Joe Kurtenbach (U.S. Army) adds, “Guns & Ammo is fortunate to employ veterans of the Global War On Terror on staff and as contributors. More importantly, it’s our privilege to serve an audience that includes many active duty servicemembers, veterans, law enforcement professionals and first responders. We sincerely appreciate Daniel Defense, and all the companies in our industry, that step up to recognize their service and sacrifice.”

If you’re a military or law enforcement customer, the GWOT rifle is available for less than the price of a standard M4A1 RIII.

To see pricing and order the GWOT rifle package, you must create an account and provide your military or law enforcement credentials or proof of service to ddmile@danieldefense.com. The rifle is available for sale from June 6, 2023, through Independence Day, July 4, 2023.
