Daniel Defense is now taking pre-orders for their improved Delta 5 Pro precision bolt-action chassis rifles. The Pro series was announced at the top of this year and is built for competition and long-range shooting.

Chambered for 6mm and 6.5mm Creedmoor and .308 Winchester, the Delta 5 Pro is tailored for Precision Rifle Series, or PRS, competitions, in addition to other shooting roles. PRS rifle must have a $2,500 or lower retail price and the Delta 5 Pro squeezes right in at $2,499 across the board.

That being said, the Delta 5 Pro was built to offer custom quality at a production price, so many of these features will appeal to non-competitive shooters as well.

The Delta 5 Pro uses a 3-lug action with a modular M-Lok chassis. The forend is scalloped to let shooters mount optics with large objective lenses closer to the bore. In addition to the six rows of M-Lok slots, the bottom of the handguard doubles as an Area 419 Arcalock rail for rapid-adjusting bipods and other accessories.

The receiver has a 20 MOA rail for optics and a bridge on the forend for night vision or thermal setups. The chassis offers a large extended magwell that doubles as a standoff for shooting from barriers without risking putting pressure on the magazine. All Delta 5 Pro models use AICS-pattern mags and ship with a 10-round Magpul magazine.

Daniel Defense paid a lot of attention to the chassis and stock and that may be one of the biggest standout features of the Pro series. The stock takes “fully adjustable” to a new level with an adjustable cheekpiece and buttplate that can also be cambered in addition to set at various heights and lengths.

The chassis uses AR-pattern grips which are simple and easy to customize and even has an adjustable, swappable gas pedal thumb rest. It also has 10 quick-detach sling points for any number of sling configurations.

Like other Delta 5 rifles the Pro models feature cold hammer-forged barrels with a heavy Palma profile. New for the Pro rifles is an optional “Varmint” profile which is a tapered bull barrel that adds a lot of mass and has improved thermal characteristics.

The Varmint profile is offered on Delta Pro rifles with 26-inch barrels chambered for 6mm and 6.5mm Creedmoor. The 20-inch .308 Winchester and 24-inch 6.5mm Creedmoor models retain the Palma profile. Rifles with the Palma barrels weigh in around 11 pounds, give or take, while the Varmint rifles weigh a bit over 13 pounds.

All of the Delta 5 Pros are threaded for 5/8-24 muzzle devices and come with an Area 419 muzzle brake. Finally, rounding things out, each action comes with a Timney Elite Hunter trigger.

Every Delta 5 Pro from Daniel Defense comes with a half-MOA accuracy guarantee, ensuring that these guns will keep up with you whether you’re shooting for sport, competition or game.

    How can I preorder a delta pro 5

    This looks like a nice rifle for precision shooters. The price tag is too high for me though as I am not a rich man.

    Right now I am spending my money on acquiring more 7.62 x 39, .308 Winchester and food storage. Hopefully no riots or civil unrest will occur in my area of the country or in anyone else’s area. Load up, train, be ready people and hope for the best.
