Daniel Defense has announced plans to immediately offer a new variation of the popular MFR 12.0. The new variation of the MFR (Modular Float Rail), will be offered in a new 9-inch length option in conjunction with the popular and currently offered 12-inch variation. The original MFR 12.0 was the defining feature offered on 2011's second-most-popular Daniel Defense rifle, the DDM4 V7.
"It isn't hard to understand why the DDM4 V7 was one of 2011's most popular rifles", said Jordan Hunter, marketing manager for Daniel Defense. The shorter, 9-inch version of the MFR accentuates the feature characteristics that made the 12-inch version a success: lighter weight, modularity, continuous uninterrupted top rail and three adjustable 3-inch Picatinny rail sections at the 3-, 6 and 9-o'clock positions. "Those same great features are now being offered in a shorter version that allows for greater flexibility in barrel-length choices," Jordan added.
Regardless of the length, 12 inches or 9 inches, the MFR has an outside diameter of 1.76 inches and an inner diameter of 1.61 inches. The total weight of the MFR 9.0 is 13.39 ounces, which lends itself well to Daniel Defense's tagline: Lighter. Stronger. Better.
