DDM4 Torture Test from Daniel Defense

Daniel Defense and Larry Vickers decided to beat up on a DDM4 and take you along for the ride. This new torture test video shows the DDM4 being run through a battery of tests that are entertaining and visually impressive though not all that informative. Most of the tests are probably fluff and it is likely that any quality AR-15 would pass, but overall the DDM4’s performance is entertaining. The DDM4 upper that I owned was reliable and accurate in the short time that I owned it.

The DDM4 performs well but I think the Aimpoint T-1 really steals the show. It takes a number of direct hits and keeps on ticking. Even at the end, when it finally does lose zero, there is no way of knowing whether it was the rifle, the mount, or the Aimpoint. The test also seems to make a strong case for QD optic mounts. If the Aimpoint in the test was in a QD mount it could have been easily removed to allow unobstructed use of the iron sights.

You can check out more information on the torture test on Daniel Defense’s website.

    Impressive, and I agree, Aimpoint ought to be running this video on THEIR web site!

    […] am not sure how much, if anything, these over the top, firearm torture tests prove (except the one done by Daniel Defense ended up proving that Aimpoints are ridiculously durable) but they are certainly entertaining. […]
