Daniel Defense Introduces DDM4V7 Pro Rifle

posted on August 24, 2016

Daniel Defense's new DDM4V7 Pro was designed for competitors looking to dominate multi-gun-match podiums. With features like an 18-inch, Strength-to-Weight, cold-hammer-forged barrel; a rifle-length gas system; the company's proprietary Muzzle Climb Mitigator brake and a Geissele Automatics Super Dynamic 3 Gun Trigger, Daniel Defense claims shorter split times, more precise follow-up shots, softened recoil, and reduced fatigue when used in competition.

A new MFR XS 15.0 M-LOK rail provides major weight savings, plenty of real estate for optics, superior cooling, and outstanding ergonomics for transitioning between targets and preventing over-travel. Shooters will appreciate the larger Vltor Gunfighter Mod 4 Charging Handle latch, for easier manipulation under magnified optics, and the rugged yet comfortable DD Buttstock and Pistol Grip. Daniel Defense offers the DDM4V7 Pro to help competitors reach the next level.
