Featured Daniel Defense Releases DDM4V7s Industry News February 14, 2017 Join the Conversation Daniel Defense recently added a new short barreled rifle to their lineup: The DDM4V7s. If you're familiar with the rifle lineup from Daniel Defense, unpacking the name isn't terribly difficult. DDM4, V7, S (short). This will be great news not just for Daniel Defense fans, but for anyone considering an SBR. Here's what they have to say about it. Industry News: Daniel Defense Releases DDM4V7s The Daniel Defense DDM4V7S is our latest short-barreled rifle (SBR) to feature the M-LOK® attachment technology with the Daniel Defense MFR XS 10.0 rail. Built around a free-floating, Cold Hammer Forged 11.5” barrel, the V7S delivers optimal maneuverability, reliability, accuracy, and terminal ballistics using a wide variety of ammunition. The carbine length gas system provides smooth and reliable cycling under harsh conditions and reduces perceived recoil. A free-floating MFR XS 10.0 rail offers incredible weight savings as well as superior cooling, ergonomics, and modularity while maintaining the strength and durability expected from Daniel Defense. With the M-LOK attachment points that run along 7 positions and an uninterrupted 1913 Picatinny rail on top, the V7S has plenty of room for sights, optics, and accessories the user may require. Pairing an 11.5” barrel and the MFR XS 10.0 rail also ensures compatibility with a wide variety of muzzle devices and sound suppressors for even more rifle customization. This platform comes standardly equipped with our rugged and extremely comfortable Daniel Defense Buttstock and Pistol Grip. Specifications include: BARREL LENGTH: 11.5” BARREL MATERIAL: CHROME MOLY VANADIUM STEEL BARREL TYPE: COLD HAMMER FORGED, CHROME LINED BARREL PROFILE: GOVERNMENT PROFILE RIFLING TWIST: 1:7” GAS SYSTEM LENGTH: CARBINE LENGTH MUZZLE DEVICE: DD IMPROVED FLASH SUPPRESSOR OVERALL LENGTH: 26 3/4” WEIGHT (UNLOADED): 5.8 LBS CALIBER: 5.56 NATO (5.56X45MM) RAIL SYSTEM: :MFR XS 10.0 MSRP: $1,679 And because this is an SBR, Daniel Defense also includes this NFA disclaimer: This firearm is a regulated item by the National Firearms Act (NFA).
