At the rifle’s core is a free-floating, 18-inch Cold Hammer Forged barrel, which comes standard with Daniel Defense’s Superior Suppression Device Extended, for reduced muzzle-flash. This high-quality barrel connects directly to the upper receiver and free-floating KeyMod handguard with a robust 4-Bolt Connection System with patent pending barrel extension, resulting in increased stability, better accuracy, and reduced weight.
The Ambush .308 is fed via an optimized bolt carrier group featuring a redesigned geometry and a new extremely slick, low-friction coating that ensure smooth, reliable feeding under most any circumstances.
Ambidextrous controls make operating the rifle — including dropping the magazine, releasing the bolt, and switching the safety selector — intuitive and comfortable for right- and left-handed shooters.
The charging handle is also ambidextrous, as well as user-configurable, and can be set up on either side with a larger or smaller handle in order to accommodate magnified optics or iron sights for a snag-free setup.
Finally, to help hunters deliver on-target shots to bring down their prey, the Ambush .308 has a crisp two-Stage Geissele Super Semi-Automatic (SSA) Trigger that provides a smooth, precise trigger pull every time.
The highly maneuverable and configurable Daniel Defense Ambush .308 has an overall length between 35.375 inches and 39 inches, depending on buttstock adjustment, and weighs only 8.6 pounds.
ts rail system features a 15-inch Picatinny top rail and KeyMods at the 3, 6, and 9 o’clock positions.
The rifle is available in multiple colors /patterns, including Kryptek Highlander, with plans to offer it in Realtree Xtra pattern soon.
