Daniel Defense announced the addition of M-Lok attachment rails for its DD5V1 and DD5V2 rifles. Now, consumers will be able to receive rifles with handguards designed to work with either KeyMod or M-Lok accessory attachment, depending on their personal preference.

The attachment systems are part of the 15-inch free-float MFR XS rail, which is designed to provide users with a lighter-weight rail system that ensures rapid cooling, better ergonomics and more modularity than other handguards on the market today. The M-Lock attachment points are found at seven different positions around the outside of the handguard, providing users with an incredible range of leeway for accessory placement.

The rifle features a unique four-bolt connection system that incorporates a specially designed barrel extension that secures the free-float barrel and M-Lok handguard to the upper receiver without the use of a barrel nut.

The handguard surrounds a 16-inch cold-hammer-forged barrel that features an integral Daniel Defense flash suppressor, along with a mid-length gas system that is designed to ensure reliable performance under rugged conditions, as well as reduce felt recoil and minimize wear on the internals of the rifle. The barrel also features a threaded muzzle that features a 5/8x24 TPI thread pitch.

The Daniel Defense DD5V1 rifle comes equipped with a two-stage Geissele SSA trigger, which features a 2.5-pound take-up and a 2-pound break. The gun also features an ambidextrous safety selector, magazine catch and bolt release, as well as a modular charging handle.

The rifle is built with a lower receiver that features an oversized trigger guard that provides use with gloved hands, as well as a flared magazine well that facilitates smoother mag changes. The bolt and carrier are built with an oversize cam pin, as well as an improved extractor design and dual ejectors. The overall weight of the gun is 8.3 pounds.

The suggested retail price on the Daniel Defense DD5V1 M-Lok rifle is $3,044.
