Committed to simplicity and reliability, Daniel Defense’s rifles are legendary for their ability to keep operating under the harshest conditions. That’s why many shooters have chosen Daniel Defense rifles as their “go-to” ARs—they know these guns will work.

All Daniel Defense ARs use upper and lower receivers machined from forged 7075-T6 aluminum to provide the most strength without being too heavy. The barrels are cold-hammer forged, chrome lined and phosphated per military specifications. The gas blocks, made of steel, are securely pinned in place. The M16-profile bolt carrier groups are hardened with properly staked gas keys. As for furniture, Daniel Defense recently started offering its own buttstocks and pistol grips with comfortable Soft-Touch overmolding, and the company’s handguards are still some of the strongest on the market.

Every rifle is built to last and work in any environment, and the company maintains that level of quality as it continues to innovate. To that end, let’s look at some of the newest models from Daniel Defense.
