Preview – M4 Carbine, V7 LW – Lightweight Versatility

Daniel Defense Do-It-All V7 LW

Trijicon's TA31H-GACOG allowed us to take precise shots at distance.

From a distance, all AR-15s look the same: a mostly uniform amalgam of aluminum, steel, and plastic, all dressed in black. They're all manufactured to the same set of specifications, and are comprised of the same components: a barrel, receivers, a grip and a stock. With so many competitors producing a similar product, how is it that Daniel Defense stands out in such a crowded market? To excel in a domain in which your product looks very much like your competitors', the company chose to concentrate on one important factor: build quality.

 

Whether you are a casual shooter or make your living in law enforcement, having a reliable carbine is essential. Daniel Defense, known for high-quality products at reasonable prices, supremely delivers in that department. Initially famous for its high-quality, railed handguards, the Black Creek, Georgia-based company has quickly grown to become a successful commercial rifle and accessories manufacturer as well as a supplier to the U.S. and UK armed forces. Specializing in AR-15s, Daniel Defense currently offers 17 unique rifles. The M4 Carbine, V7 LW (Lightweight), is one of its newest models.
