Daniel Defense 3 Gun Rifle & New .308 – SHOT Show 2015

Send to Kindle

Daniel Defense came to the SHOT Show this year with news that will make 3-gun shooters pleased. They’ve released a version of their DDM4–the V11 Pro–that is specifically designed for competitive shooters. This is a bit of a departure for Daniel Defense, but a no-brainer, as competitive shooters have been using their guns now for years.

What sets this gun apart? In short, all of the upgrades you’d want to make to a typical DD rifle (especially for competition shooting) have already been made. The slim rail, the Bravo Company charging handle, the Geissele trigger–all things that, if purchased separately, would mount up quick. And it has an 18″ hammer forged barrel, too. With the rifle length gas system and the muzzle climb mitigator, this should be a ridiculously easy gun to shoot.

There are bigger things coming, too. Much bigger. Daniel Defense’s first .308 should be out this spring.

The new DDM Pro line is thin.

Competition rifles from Daniel Defense? They didn’t have to look far for a platform to start from.

Attention to detail really sets Daniel Defense apart.

And the whole thing is even more effective with the Geissele trigger.

    I love it, finally a good videographer, who knew to record the video while there was a little peace and quiet, rather than so much background noise you can’t hear anything well. She also formed good questions and knew pricing. I give her four stars.

    What is the projected release date for the new DD AR10?

  • John Larkin February 23, 2015, 6:39 pm

    The DDM411VM looks very interesting. Will the .308 release be based on this platform? Recommended dealers? The gun will be more capable than I am but at least I won’t be able to blame the gun for any misses!

    can you tell me if AR15’s are legal in Pennsylvania, if they are not what in that platform can I purchase. Thank you!

    • Administrator February 8, 2015, 11:01 pm

      yes they are legal in PA

      Pennsylvania is one of the good states and almost anything is allowed including silencers/suppressors.

    Daniel Defense, best you can own.
