Daniel Defense’s newest 5.56mm SBR is expensive -- but so tempting.
The DDM4V7S is our “latest short-barreled rifle to feature the M-LOK attachment technology with the Daniel Defense MFR XS 10.0 rail. Built around a free-floating, Cold Hammer Forged 11.5-inch barrel, the V7S delivers optimal maneuverability, reliability, accuracy, and terminal ballistics using a wide variety of ammunition,” according to a Daniel Defense press release.
The carbine length gas system provides smooth and reliable cycling under harsh conditions and reduces perceived recoil. A free-floating MFR XS 10.0 rail offers incredible weight savings as well as superior cooling, ergonomics, and modularity while maintaining strength and durability, according to the release.
With the M-LOK attachment points that run along 7 positions and an uninterrupted 1913 Picatinny rail on top, the V7S has plenty of room for sights, optics, and accessories the user may require.
Pairing an 11.5-inch barrel and the MFR XS 10.0 rail also ensures compatibility with a wide variety of muzzle devices and sound suppressors for even more rifle customization. This platform comes equipped with a rugged and extremely comfortable Daniel Defense Buttstock and Pistol Grip, according to the release.
The V7S weighs 5.8 pounds and measures 26.75 inches with stock collapsed and just under 30 inches fully extended.
But for $1,679, this 5.56mm SBR ought to at least come with front and rear iron sights.
