The rifle uses a cold hammer forged 10.3″ barrel that is topped with a Daniel Defense flash suppressor. With the adjustable buttstock, the overall length of the gun runs 26.75″ – 29.875″. Unloaded, the gun weighs 5.77 pounds.
Daniel Defense uses a pistol length direct impingement system with a low profile gas block. A quad rail handguard of the company’s own making protects the gas tube, keeps your hand off the hot barrel and allows you to add many different accessories to the rifle. It is machined from 6061-T6 aluminum, and like the receivers, has a Type III hard coat anodized finish.
The rifle ships standard without sights, but they can be added at the time of ordering. Obviously, any aftermarket sights or optics can also be added to the gun. The pistol grip and buttstock both have soft, overmolded rubber for a more comfortable, more sure grip on the rifle.
Daniel Defense includes one Magpul 30-round PMAG with the rifle. Additionally, the gun ships with a lockable, hard plastic case. The suggested retail price for the DDM4 300s is $1,749. Rifles are available for order immediately. In October, Daniel Defense announced the new 7.62 rifles were shipping.
