Texas Parks and Wildlife Selects Daniel Defense DDM4V7
“We’re honored to be selected by TPWD to provide each of their LE divisions with upgraded service carbines,” said Patrick Kisgen, Daniel Defense Vice President of Sales. “To be judged against the leading manufacturers in this industry and ultimately be selected as the best, speaks to the quality and performance of our DDM4 platform.”
The selected carbine is an upgraded version of the DDM4V7 Mil Spec +. The 16-inch, semi-automatic duty rifle is chambered in 5.56mm. It features a 15-inch M-LOk handguard, ambidextrous charging handle, swing swivels, and an M-LOK Picatinny rail section. Texas Park’s and Wildlife chose to further customize the rifle. It added a Radian Weapons Talon ambidextrous safety selector and Magpul MBUS Pro flip-up front and rear sights. Additionally, it added a Magpul angled foregrip and Ergo Grips rail covers.
“The solicitation for these firearms began in April of 2019,” said Joe Marler, Daniel Defense Law Enforcement Sales Manager. “TPWD ultimately selected our DDM4V7 over its competition for its reliability, durability, and accuracy. The versatility of the DDM4V7 makes it the ideal service carbine as it can be configured to serve in the many diverse roles that law enforcement encounter.”
Daniel Defense will supply more than 700 carbines to the TPWD before the end of the year for official service use across all their law enforcement divisions.
