New Daniel Defense Products for 2016

With four new rifles and two new accessories for 2016, Daniel Defense is providing an answer to some of the most popular consumer demands in the firearms market, including suppressed and short-barreled firearms.

daniel-defense-isr-1DDM4 ISR

The Daniel Defense DDM4ISR — optimized for the versatile 300 Blackout cartridge — is now lighter, quieter, and more accurate than ever before. Built around a 9-inch, cold-hammer-forged barrel with a pistol-length gas system calibrated for its integral suppressor, this high-performance rifle delivers both subsonic and supersonic projectiles with greatly reduced muzzle blast and flash, helping to conceal a shooter's location and keep the user on target with faster follow-up shots and less degradation of vision, particularly in low-light situations.

The DDM4ISR's integral suppressor extends the barrel to the NFA-required 16 inches in length, so this platform is not classified as a Short Barreled Rifle (SBR) and only requires one tax stamp (for the suppressor). The suppressor's durable tube is finished with high-temp Cerakote-C, capable of withstanding extreme temperatures under harsh conditions, and the user-serviceable baffle core is easily removable for periodic maintenance.


The DDM4ISR now comes equipped standard with our long MFR XL 15.0 handguard, which features a continuous 1913 Picatinny rail on its top for mounting iron sights or optics, and also has Keymod attachment points at the 3, 6, and 9 o'clock positions. This longer, multi-functional handguard, in conjunction with a Daniel Defense buttstock and pistol grip, make the DDM4ISR as ergonomic as it is versatile. A resilient, attractive Mil Spec + Cerakote finish protects this weapon system from the elements.

DDM4 V4S

The DDM4 V4S is Daniel Defense's latest SBR. Its design is based on an extremely popular configuration that the company has been providing to law enforcement personnel and agencies as well as civilian users who demand a lightweight, durable and dependable SBR. Built around a free-floating, cold-hammer-forged 11.5-inch barrel, the DDM4 V4s delivers optimal maneuverability, reliability, accuracy and terminal ballistics using a wide variety of ammunition.

Our DDM4 Rail 10.0 shields the rifle's barrel and carbine-length, low-profile gas block. This lightweight, ergonomic rail system affords ample room for securely mounting multiple accessories and offers the longest possible sight radius with iron sights. Quick-disconnect attachment points are fully integrated to the front and back of the rail on both sides for tangle-free, ambidextrous sling attachment. Three removable high-temperature-resistant Daniel Defense rail panels provide a secure, comfortable grip while also protecting the support hand from heat.


Pairing an 11.5-inch barrel and a DDM4 Rail 10.0 also ensures compatibility with a wide variety of muzzle devices and sound suppressors for even more rifle customization. This platform comes standardly equipped with a Daniel Defense buttstock and pistol grip.

DDM4 V7


The Daniel Defense V7 is the first rifle in the DDM4 lineup to feature the M-LOK attachment technology with the Daniel Defense MFR XS 15.0 rail. Built around a cold-hammer-forged, 16-inch barrel, the V7 has a DD improved flash suppressor to reduce flash signature.

The mid-length gas system provides smooth and reliable cycling under any condition and reduces both perceived recoil and wear on moving parts. A free-floating MFR XS 15.0 handguard offers weight savings as well as cooling, ergonomics and modularity while maintaining strength and durability.

With the M-LOK attachment points that run along six positions and an uninterrupted 1913 Picatinny rail on top, the V7 has plenty of room for the sights, optics and accessories the user may require. The rifle is finished off with a Daniel Defense buttstock and pistol grip.

keymod-defense-scout-light-daniel-mount-4KeyMod Scout Light Mount

Daniel Defense has developed a low-profile offset mount for secure mounting of one of the most popular firearm lights in the industry today: the SureFire Scout Light.

The lightweight, snag-free design of this mount is compatible with KeyMod handguards — like the Daniel Defense SLiM Rail — and is fully reversible for ambidextrous use. The Daniel Defense KeyMod Scout Light Mount is made from 6061-T6 Aluminum and is type III hard coat anodized.

The KeyMod Scout Light Mount accommodates the following SureFire Scout Light models: SureFire M300 Mini Scout Light, M600 Ultra Scout Light, M600P Fury Scout Light, M300V Mini Scout Light and the M600V Scout Light.

slim-rail-daniel-defense-5SLiM Rail 9

The SLiM Rail from Daniel Defense uses the KeyMod accessory attachment system for weight savings as well as cooling, ergonomics and modularity while maintaining strength and durability. KeyMod is a recoil resistant, two-part, direct attachment method for accessories that offers outstanding "return-to-zero" when accessories are removed and reinstalled.

The SLiM Rail features the battle-proven "Bolt-Up System" which provides modern flat-top upper receivers with a free-floating, continuous, uninterrupted upper rail platform and allows for simplified alignment to the host firarm's upper receiver. Ambidextrous sling swivel attachment points are integrated into both the left and right side rails at 1 and 11 o'clock.

The SLiM Rail can be used with a low-profile gas block on pistol, carbine or mid-length gas systems.

Pocket carry, as a method of concealed carry for a defensive firearm, can be a practical option when done right. This is especially true during the colder months when heavy outer garments can obstruct access to a traditional waistline holster. Former U.S. Navy SEAL Jeff Gonzales, president of Trident Concepts, joins G&A contributor Kimberly Heath-Chudwin to discuss guns, training and gear, including Blackhawk's TecGrip holster that can make pocket carry more successful.
