Daniel Defense Lets the .30 Caliber Cat Out of the Bag

Daniel Defense has announced the official name, release date, and specs of their previously teased AR308. The DD5V1 will launch October 23rd and it will be packed with quality features. It looks to be a real player in the AR308 market right out of the gate.


It should come as no surprise that the DD5V1 will feature a CHF barrel. Daniel Defense’s barrel are a known quantity at this point and this should be a solid performer. The new 15″ KeyMod rail features a 4 bolt connection system that ties it directly into the upper receiver. The rifle will come standard with Daniel Defense produced furniture and a Geissele SSA which is an excellent choice for an all-around .308 like this.


The controls look to be very well sorted out. The safety selector, magazine catch, and bolt release are all ambidextrous. The charging handle is an interesting latchless design that is ambidextrous and user configurable.


It should also be noted that it takes the SR25 pattern magazine. There is no excuse to build an AR308 that takes anything other than the SR25 magazine at this point.

The DD5V1 product page is already live so check it out at DanielDefense.com.

From Daniel Defense:

Black Creek, GA- January 19, 2015- Daniel Defense, exhibiting at SHOT Show 2015, January 20-23rd, at the Sands Expo & Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, today officially announced the release of the DDM4v11 Pro Series Rifle.

Further tapping into the shooting sports arena, the V11 Pro Series Rifle encompasses the core attributes athletes search for in a competition rifle.   “As more and more consumers begin to utilize the AR platform for competition, we felt it was the right time to release this version of our popular V11,” explained Jordan Hunter, Director of Marketing for Daniel Defense. Built around an 18-inch barrel and rifle length gas system, the V11’s competitive edge also stems from the lightweight SLiM Rail 15.0, GEN II Muzzle Climb Mitigator, Geissele SD-3G competition trigger and upgraded charging handle.

“The V11 Series rifles were released back in the summer,” continued Hunter. “Not only were they an instant hit, leaving with consumers as fast as they could be placed on the racks, it left us brainstorming on ways we could expand this model.” The answer came in the form of a precision rifle with the desired components for the 3-gun stage or other recreational shooting.

Daniel Defense Releases New Aimpoint Mount and SLiM Rails

Daniel Defense released two new products today: a redesigned Aimpoint Micro Mount and the SLiM Rail.

The new Aimpoint Micro Mount looks a lot like their previous Aimppoint Micro Mount at first glance. However, this new version is set at absolute co-witness height and can achieve lower 1/3rd co-witness via a very cool magnesium alloy spacer. Like its predecessor, it is very lightweight at just 1.5 ounces (or 1.8 with the spacer).


Our first look at the SLiM Rails (Slim, Lightweight, Modular) came with the release of the DDM4v11. Now they are available for purchase separately. These rails offer KeyMod attachment points at 3, 6, and 9 o’clock, continuous 1913 rail at the 12 o’ clock position, integrated QD sling swivel sockets, and the good news for Lite Rail users is that it will work with the Light Rail III barrel nut so swapping should be a snap.
