Problem with some stocks but they'll send you a new one.

They are pretty much with Colt and BCM as being good, solid, middle of the road rifles that can take a beating and put rounds on target (assuming the guy pulling the trigger is doing his job.)

I would say they are a step above people like RRA and Stag (not that those aren't good rifles) and a few steps behind guys like Noveske, Larue, and KAC.

If you are looking at one and the price is right you can buy with confidence.

The RIS II makes me happy and their integrally suppressed 300blk upper looks cool.  

Everything else is kinda "meh".

I like their barrels. Their accessories like rails and buttstocks are ugly IMO, but I'm sure they are solidly built.

They are excellent rifles.

I think they use too large of gas ports in their barrels after getting my 12.5" so I won't be buying another.  BCM uses proper sized gas ports from what I have experienced (I am sure others do as well) so that is what I will be using from now on.
Link Posted: 6/30/2015 3:37:39 PM EDT
I paired up my $120 DD pencil bbl deal from AIM with a DD BCG, with a DD clamp on gas block and DD Omega Rail.  Everything fit together with such precision.

Coming from a Tier 3 AR background, I could immediately tell the difference in the quality and how well it shoots.  I'm not one to cherry pick the best group and post a pic of it to give the impression the gun always shoots like that, but so far I've seen that gun pull a few submoa groups with factory ammo out of its ass, even using a mil-spec trigger.

Serious question here.... I have a DDM4v1 and I honestly can't see anything that makes it inferior to Noveske, Larue, or KAC. I hit a steel plate at 750 yards, with wolf ammo and a non-magnified eotech a couple weeks ago.




What actually makes those manufacturers better?

I bought a DDM4V7 as my first "serious" AR. Thing was a tank. Wasn't a huge fan of the rail sections. Sold the upper, kept the lower. I did get a RIS II. It's one solid bastard. I'll most likely be getting one of their MK18 uppers in the future. I don't think you can go wrong with Daniel Defense really.

DD and BCM barrels are produced for the masses with soulless, CHF machines that just pound slag into shape. Noveske and Larue barrels are hand turned on lathes by oompa loompas with unicorn semen as coolant. They don't even recycle the semen. They just flush it down the drain as soon as it hits steel and pass on the expense to you.

This is my only issue with their SBRs. Gas ports are drilled too big, reason being to assure they'll run cheaper commercial ammo. The result is an over-gassed rifle.

Damn. I was going to use a DD 12.5 barrel on a pistol I'm building. Can the gas port issue be remedied with an adjustable gas block?

Yeah I'm not sure why but they post this type of stuff in just about every thread possible. In one even encouraging people to invest in colt As someone that deployed with a colt I can say I would never buy or trust a colt rifle, but I happily own two DD.

I have a 12.5 DD barrel paired with a Geisselle super gas block that runs without any problems.

I love the finish on DD, seems a lot smoother than some of the other AR's that I have had.

It pisses me off that I spent $360 on a 12.5" barrel with pinned gas block and then had to spend another $165 on an H3 buffer and LMT Enhanced carrier to get it function even somewhat correctly with my suppressor.

The suggestions I received were to install an adjustable gas block but it doesn't make much sense to throw another $100+ into that upper when I could just sell the barrel and get a barrel that is made right from BCM or even PSA.

yea a gas block will fix it, usually not even an issue unless running suppressed.

Run away would be my advice if you want to use a suppressor.  While the adjustable gas block will fix it you would be better off buying a BCM barrel or even getting a complete barrel from MicroMOA if you want an adjustable gas block anyway.

I have a 12.5 DD bbl too and find it works well with an H2 buffer and Wolff extra power buffer spring.  Throws M193/M855 brass about 3-4 oclock unsuppressed and 1-2 oclock suppressed.

I put my 14.5 DD bbl upper on the same lower and it works the same way.

Mine must be extra special then as even with an H3 buffer, Sprinco Blue, and LMT Enhanced carrier it still ejects between 1-2 o'clock suppressed and 3-4 o'clock unsuppressed and that is using 223 pressure ammo while my 11.5" BCM ejects at 3-3:30 o'clock suppressed and 4-5 o'clock with just a standard carrier, spring, and H2 buffer using the same ammo.

An Omega 9.0 rail is almost mandatory if you have a Colt 6920. Solid and well built. If the quality of their rifles is similar to their accessories, I wouldn't hesitate to buy one of their rifles.

On the bright side, with the overgassiness, it'll start running right when the insides of the receiver are caked with suppressor gunk and dragging ass on everything.   A condition that'll make a reduced mass BCG run home to mommy.

Top of the line? No. KAC holds that title.



Damn fine fighting rifle able to goto hell and beyond? Oh yes.

They are on par with BCM. They just plain work as much as you could ever expect from a 'milspec' type rifle.




IMO, I prefer them over BCM as most of their parts are made in house rather than relying on someone else. QC is truly controlled rather than just checked.

I think I have it sorted out finally but I just wish I didn't have to spend the extra money to do it.  It runs really well now though and I have never had a malfunction with it in the 400 or so rounds I have shot it thus far during my troubleshooting.
