Upgraded! Daniel Defense Delta 5 Pro

    Daniel Defense DELTA 5 pro

    After some time on the market, it’s now time for a new Daniel Defense Delta 5 model – the “Pro”. The Delta 5 Pro is aimed at competitors looking to get into precision long range rifle shooting. The Delta 5 Pro comes with a sub-half-MOA precision guarantee, and features the Area 419s ARCA rail. Daniel Defense claims that this bolt gun bridges the gap between basic platforms and more expensive custom builds, and I think they have a point.

    The rifle comes in three calibers – 6CM, 6.5CM and .308 Win and is priced at $2499.00 (MSRP).


    Introducing the Delta 5 Pro: If you are interested in long-range performance, look no further than the Delta5 Pro. This firearm is the ultimate package of performance, accuracy, and custom features that are rarely found on a production bolt gun. So, whether you’re a weekend shooter looking to improve your long-range capabilities for the thrill and fun, or a more seasoned competitor looking to improve your current rig; the Delta5 Pro is a firearm that will grow with your capabilities. Guaranteed to shoot sub half MOA and one of the first precision rifles to feature Area 419s ARCA rail, this is a serious competition-ready firearm without the serious competition price tag.

    Here’s more from Daniel Defense’s description of the rifle:


    GUARANTEED TO SHOOT 0.5 MOA OR BETTER. Talk is cheap—including talk about how accurate a rifle shoots—so we’re putting some real firepower behind our words. All Daniel Defense DELTA 5 PRO rifles are guaranteed to shoot 0.5 MOA or less at 100 yards when used with quality factory match-grade ammunition. Not “should”; not “might.” Guaranteed to. How can we make such a claim? Because we’ve done the work and the testing to back it up. It’s not just talk; it’s not bravado. It’s science backed up by data. Data that says, “If we can do it, so can you.” Guaranteed.
