Daniel Defense Introduces New Guns & SLiM KeyMod Rail System

Daniel Defense Introduces New Guns & SLiM KeyMod Rail System

Daniel_Defense_DDM4V11Daniel Defense has announced a handful of exciting new products, including three rifles in the DDM4v11 series, the MK18 pistol and a .300 AAC Blackout pistol.

New-product introductions also include Daniel Defense's new SLiM (Slim Lightweight Modular) Rail 15.0, which is the company's first forend design to incorporate the KeyMod attachment system (pictured on the DDM4v11 rifle above).

"Our customers have been hounding us for a KeyMod rail," laughs Jordan Hunter, Daniel Defense director of marketing. "Not only were we able to deliver, but we managed to reduce the weight. You'll be amazed at how light the V11 feels in hand."

The DDM4v11 is available in three configurations: The DDM4v11 features a 16-inch Government barrel, while the DDM4v11 LW has 16-inch Lightweight barrel and the DDM4v11 S2W uses an 18-inch Strength-to-Weight (S2W) barrel. The SLiM Rail will be available for individual sale at a later date. The DDM4v11 is available for $1,599.


The MK18 pistol is similar to Daniel Defense's MK18 Factory SBR, featuring the same cold-hammer-forged, chrome-lined 10.3-inch barrel. The pistol utilizes a carbine-length gas system and has an overall length and weight of 27 1/16 inches and 5.4 pounds. It is available for $1,699.


Daniel Defense's other new pistol comes chambered in .300 AAC Blackout with a cold-hammer-forged, chrome-lined 10.3-inch barrel; pistol-length gas system; and pinned low-profile gas block. The .300 Blackout pistol has the same overall length of the MK18 with a total weight of 5.3 pounds. It is also available for $1,699.

Both pistols incorporate a 1.15-inch-diameter pistol receiver extension instead of a Mil-Spec receiver extension and buttstock, and they are not considered NFA-regulated items.

The 300 Blackout Pistol has a 10.3-inch barrel, pistol length gas system and pinned low profile gas block.
