Daniel Defense, known for manufacturing AR-15 parts, have produced their first complete rifle.

Daniel Defense M4 Carbine

The carbine features:

* their own in-house manufactured lower receiver
* 1:7 16″ barrel
* Daniel Defense Omega X 12.0 FSP rail that extends forward of the front sight / gas block
* Daniel Defense A1.5 rear sight.
* Magpul stock.
* Daniel Defense forward grip

I like the look of the A1.5 rear sight.

No word on pricing.

UPDATE: MSRP seems to be $1600. See randomhero58’s comment below.

    Ok I've been researching for the past 3mo on ar platforms and from what Ive seen I'm either going for a DD or LMT I know both are of high quality n cash isn't a problem... But what is the better of the two rifles ? I haven't seen a match up of the two or a comparison. Any words of advice?

    I've had my DDM4 V4 for about 4 months now and love it. Like most of y'all I did my research n concluded that its worth the money to go to a top of a line product like Daniel Defense. But I was wondering about a couple things and haven't been able to find the answers on the Internet so maybe y'all can help me out.

    1) Is it worth it to install a custom trigger? I mean I love the trigger now but I'm always looking for ways to improve my gun and make it truly custom. And if so what trigger would you recommend.

    2) I'm currently shooting Hornady 52 grain V-Max, is a step up n grains worth the adjustment if I'm only using this gun for varmint/deer/hog hunting?

    Thanks and god bless
