A Truly Top-Shelf AR? 🤔 Daniel Defense DDM4 V7! [Review]

A Truly Top-Shelf AR? 🤔 Daniel Defense DDM4 V7! [Review]

Longtime viewers of the channel will know that we’ve done a ton of AR-15 reviews, and at a certain point, they all sort of become indistinguishable – so what sets Daniel Defense’s flagship AR platform apart from the rest? Is that price tag justified, or are you paying for that sweet, sweet name-brand recognition?

Join us as we explore the ins and outs of what might be one of the highest quality ARs we’ve had the pleasure of reviewing on the channel, or check the link below for even more info!

  19. Philip Holcomb on November 7, 2021 at 6:16 pm

    What type of covers are those anyone know?

  20. swankHD on November 7, 2021 at 6:16 pm

    I was able to pick up an M4A1 upper for $1100 a couple weeks ago. Slapped it onto my Aero lower that’s packed full of goodies. Upper I previously had was a budget build that ate over 6,000 rounds, and I’ve been telling myself forever that I’d replace it eventually.

  21. Tyrone Johnson on November 7, 2021 at 6:17 pm

    Great video brother! Great quality too! You got yourself a sub!

  22. Brian Birchall on November 7, 2021 at 6:19 pm

    Wait, so is it worth the money? Did I miss that part?

  23. Harry Epotter on November 7, 2021 at 6:20 pm

    John can you do a review of Cobalt Kinetic AR-15 please. I wonder what you think of the Edge model. Thank you.

  24. algierssolja on November 7, 2021 at 6:23 pm

    That intro/demo was pure unadulterated fornication.

  25. Mitsurugi2424 on November 7, 2021 at 6:24 pm

    Can anyone ele confirm that they come with the forgrip, irons, and mlok sling plates? I’d hate to buy all thia crap only to find it in the box…

  26. Ro Abueme on November 7, 2021 at 6:27 pm

    Super helpful and hilarious review. More please!

  27. Shaun Brown on November 7, 2021 at 6:29 pm

    Where did you get things mounted on the side
    of the rail?

  28. Status1200 on November 7, 2021 at 6:30 pm

    Too long, get to the point.

  31. DavidsGuns on November 7, 2021 at 6:32 pm

    P mags 🤮

  32. Freedom Rider Morty on November 7, 2021 at 6:34 pm

    Looking fo your input. I have a budget of $ 1750.00 for just the rifle. Could you give me some options.
    I currently run Rock River but want to take it to another level. Morty

  33. Eren Jeager on November 7, 2021 at 6:35 pm

    Would you recommend this to someone who is new to civilian gun ownership? I just recently came to the right but I always wanted to carry a small pistol for self defense and a semi auto rifle (don’t know the normal name lol) for the house. Not 21 yet but I just want to be safe in these times. Many thanks in advance

  34. Strong Like Bull on November 7, 2021 at 6:36 pm

    What is the purpose of wearing a hat in a tactical setting backward?

  35. ryanwhite17 on November 7, 2021 at 6:37 pm

    Looking for my first rifle with a budget of $2k, what would you recommend considering I live in Cali?

  36. Hal Jordan on November 7, 2021 at 6:38 pm

    Are you in Arizona, I’m looking for a nice desert place to shoot don’t wanna just shoot paper targets at shooting range.

  37. Kevin M on November 7, 2021 at 6:41 pm

    You are, in fact, paying for name recognition, but it’s not unjustified. That said, I find them overpriced.

  38. DBR00 on November 7, 2021 at 6:43 pm

    I want to my my first AR-15 and I want it to be a Daniel Defense! I hope to win your giveaway, but if I don’t, I will buy a rifle if a get an end of year bonus from work.

  39. Murdock on November 7, 2021 at 6:44 pm

  40. Nick Walters on November 7, 2021 at 6:44 pm

  41. Dull skull on November 7, 2021 at 6:45 pm

    After what y’all said about the Springfield M1A your opinion on guns don’t matter

  42. Nick aguado on November 7, 2021 at 6:46 pm

    Thousands through mine and no issues. Normal maintenance. Eats up everything.

  43. Too Many letters on November 7, 2021 at 6:47 pm

    Does it take glock mags?

  44. Jonathan Bui on November 7, 2021 at 6:48 pm

    Overpriced basic mil-spec AR.

  45. Nathaniel Wagner on November 7, 2021 at 6:49 pm

    I bought the DDM4V7 as my first ever rifle around the time last year that the "fiery but mostly peaceful protests" were raging. No regrets whatsoever. I’ve ran about 500 rounds through it, rarely lube it, never cleaned it and it runs like a champ 💪

  46. Mick Don on November 7, 2021 at 6:50 pm

    He is on wickr

  47. Mtnbound on November 7, 2021 at 6:51 pm

    wait how the F is THAT cali compliant? it looks scary AF

  48. RhysGreenable on November 7, 2021 at 6:51 pm
