Daniel Defense DDM4 V7 Best AR-15 Rifle? New Owners Guide

Daniel Defense DDM4 V7 Best AR-15 Rifle? New Owners Guide

Daniel Defense is a premier AR maker and has had several contracts with the U.S. Military and LEO agencies. Daniel has been a long standing quality manufacturer of rails and full rifles for years. But if you want to run one of these for defense prepare to pay for it. Its priced slightly above competitors in the same option point but Daniel Defense uses great parts and everything was machined beautifully. As much good as there is here I did find a few things that could be better. The gas system on this DDM4 V7 is definitely over gassed for a mid length and feels like the port is way over sized in the barrel. The Daniel Trigger is pretty bad even for milspec and the ambi safety causes some problems in operation since its full size on both sides. Either way this rifle is definitely nice and will give years of service.

    My biggest issue is the trigger, I spent $1800 on a MK18 and the trigger sucks, soooo i will spend an extra 200 for a SSA



  2. realdealone on November 16, 2021 at 6:25 pm

    #DropDaHammer 😂



  3. NFiltr8Red on November 16, 2021 at 6:25 pm

    Butt stock is about the only thing I like, and I have em on all my AR’s.



  4. Clayton Gonzalez on November 16, 2021 at 6:29 pm

    You the trigger guard is one piece but we can see pins? Am I wrong?



  5. Baby B Mario on November 16, 2021 at 6:33 pm

    Hello. What type of suppressor AKA Can do i need for my DD V 7 Pro?



  6. kelly m on November 16, 2021 at 6:33 pm

    Funny enough, I have my ddm4v7 set up almost identically.



  7. Kevin Herbert on November 16, 2021 at 6:34 pm

    If you could only pick one Daniel defense being ddm4 v7 or m4a1 which would you choose? Great video



  8. whitesands on November 16, 2021 at 6:34 pm

    Just picked up one. Love the details like the cheek pad, grip and the way the hand guard is mounted. You visually appreciate the build quality it has.



  9. jack M on November 16, 2021 at 6:37 pm

    Just got a DDM4 V9. Wanted to get the ole quad rail again



  10. USMC MSgt on November 16, 2021 at 6:37 pm

    I’ve heard good things about DD but I’ve never had an issue with my BCM Recce 16 KMR.



  11. Daniel Wade on November 16, 2021 at 6:37 pm

    I had the pro model and regret selling that thing every single day



  12. David Ramos on November 16, 2021 at 6:40 pm

    What trigger would you recommend that’s not as snappy?



  13. OWL on November 16, 2021 at 6:41 pm

    DD is a high spec utility rifle. Real data. I own one. But my next will be Geissele AR15 Super Duty.



  14. MrKingArthurhk on November 16, 2021 at 6:42 pm

    I have a DD MK 18 and I like it.



  15. Lion of judah on November 16, 2021 at 6:43 pm

    Love my ddm4-v7 dropped in the sd-e trigger and the super 42 spring



  16. Mattsterpiece NJMAFLVA on November 16, 2021 at 6:44 pm

    Sold mind and bought an ADM 13.9” Completely 💩’s on that gun. They got the buffer system, trigger and safety selector spot on.



  17. MrKingArthurhk on November 16, 2021 at 6:45 pm

    I am curious why you have what appears to be an MRO? I am running an Aimpoint Patrol on my Colt M4 for 100 yard general use. On my MK 18 an Aimpoint with a Twist away magnifier. Do you find the DDM4V7 inaccurate? With that model, I would consider a full on rifle scope.



  18. token 1 on November 16, 2021 at 6:47 pm

    Watched your vids on this system and 100% agree with your observations, did pretty much the same mods on mine (in your other vid)



  19. Amar Deva on November 16, 2021 at 6:48 pm

    Thanks for this review.



  20. Jge79 Erde19 on November 16, 2021 at 6:48 pm

    Wow recoil on that looks very minimal



  21. Everett Mcgill on November 16, 2021 at 6:48 pm

    What a puss, speaking on recoil impulse. I had the same safety problem. Removed 1 screw and it was gone. 😂😂….



  22. Bryan Pereira on November 16, 2021 at 6:50 pm

    DDV7 vs. MR556?



  23. LongColt on November 16, 2021 at 6:51 pm

    All the group boys r using it so i guess it must be



  24. Bill Waterhouse on November 16, 2021 at 6:52 pm

    Thanks, great review…and I agree 100%. Last year when my BCM recce arrived, a DDm4 V7 had also arrived and was available to me. Long story short, the BCM felt like it was custom made for me, how it fell into perfect position in my shoulder pocket etc. Super tight, great trigger as well. My biggest complaint for the DD was also the trigger…the worst AR trigger I’ve honestly ever felt. I actually said to the guy helping me "I can’t belive they let this one out of the factory feeling this way". I assumed it was just that one given their reputation. PS speak of surprises. I just received my new KAC sr-15. You mentioned "over hyped" in your mind, did the same with this one as its "the finest rifle in the land". I thought it was going to feel magical, nope. It’s OK, shoots well, and I’m sure an overall excellent piece however it’s very sloppy for such an expensive gun. IMHO (and humbly), save you money and buy an BCM



  25. Squidy on November 16, 2021 at 6:52 pm

    Can you take the ambidextrous safety off ?



  26. Joshua Zorka Stevens on November 16, 2021 at 6:54 pm

    Will this shoot 223? Be easy on me I’ve been out of the game for a while



  27. MrKingArthurhk on November 16, 2021 at 6:55 pm

    The trigger can be replaced with another. For instance, Geissele.



  28. Love Like a Hurricane on November 16, 2021 at 6:55 pm

    does the handguard run hot?



  29. Leroy B on November 16, 2021 at 6:56 pm

    Brother because of your video, I picked up the DD M4 A1 and the MK18!! Sold 4 of my PSA builds for them and glad I did. They are incredible



  30. Cesar Chavez on November 16, 2021 at 6:58 pm

    Definitely will be my first upcoming AR purchase along with the FNH PS90



  31. Squidy on November 16, 2021 at 6:59 pm

    I’d have to get ride of that stock , I want something bigger



  32. iF on November 16, 2021 at 7:00 pm

    ill tell you hwhat!!

    I got DD,LWRC,Noveske,Radian,LMT,ADM,S&W,Geissele etc..

    my 11.5 DDm4v7s , on a LMT Mars lower, decked out with Radian/Geissele accessories, Eotech + 3x Trijicon/vortex micro magnifier..

    tough to beat



  33. OWL on November 16, 2021 at 7:01 pm

    Yes. A very highly respected rifle heritage. DD went over the cliff. Never forget.



  34. k v on November 16, 2021 at 7:02 pm

    Can you do a review on Saint Edge Pistol?



  35. everydaykicks11 on November 16, 2021 at 7:02 pm

    Hoping to pick one of these up soon for my first rifle 🙏🏼



  36. Bishop III on November 16, 2021 at 7:03 pm

    Yo where can I get that shirt at?



  37. FURY'S ACTORS LOUNGE on November 16, 2021 at 7:04 pm

    Is the flash hider pinned and welded?
    Also what is a great alternative for a different high quality brand lower? Thanks



  38. Carlos Alicea on November 16, 2021 at 7:04 pm

    Have u had any issues with steel case Ammo



  39. John K on November 16, 2021 at 7:04 pm

    Are they still overgassed?



  40. Cameron Holmes on November 16, 2021 at 7:05 pm

    Lol the charging handle pull did not sound very smooth on camera 😂



  41. B P on November 16, 2021 at 7:06 pm

    no grit no grinding….. *Grits and Grinds*



  42. Rumeel12708 on November 16, 2021 at 7:07 pm

    Beautyyyyyy!!! Need one for these commies in California!!!!



  43. Ken Peterson on November 16, 2021 at 7:07 pm

    New to the channel and looking to pick up my first AR-15, do you have a tier list or recs for first-time buyers? Thanks for the great content!



  44. Bk Hix on November 16, 2021 at 7:10 pm

    I’ve had a M4V7 for years. Change out the spring to flat wire H2 buffer. And SSA trigger. Great battle rifle. Rock a MK18 for CQB. DD my favorite.



  45. Mitsurugi2424 on November 16, 2021 at 7:11 pm

    So, it comes with that charging handle, the QD sling loop, and 4 of those mlok QD attachment pieces?



  46. OWL on November 16, 2021 at 7:14 pm

    Buy Geissele SD upper and put it on a nice PSA lower. Best economy.



  47. Clayton Gonzalez on November 16, 2021 at 7:15 pm

    If you had to choose DD vs LWRC, which would you all pick & why?



  48. Kevin Wells on November 16, 2021 at 7:18 pm

    Unpopular Opinion: Daniel Defense is overpriced.

    Titanium Bolt Carrier Group: $350
    20" chrome molly heavy profile Criterion Barrel: $300 / 16" govt profile chrome molly barrel: $180
    Jerry Miculek Mossberg drop in trigger: $150
    Complete PSA lower: $130
    Billet Anderson Arms upper: $150-ish
    Lightweight MLOK handguard $100-ish
    Adjustable Gas Block: $70

    Total: $1300, $1430 after tax, $1500 tops after shipping/FFL fee (if applicable)

    Daniel Defense rifle? $2,000-$2200

    Do your research. The $700 difference will buy you a PREMIUM optic, or close to 2,000 rounds of ammo in today’s market.

    Daniel Defense is overpriced..



  49. Jerry Robinson on November 16, 2021 at 7:18 pm

    I’ve had my m4v11for years. Thousands of rounds through it. Wouldn’t trade it.



  50. Jose Reyes on November 16, 2021 at 7:18 pm

    I’m starting the long journey to save up for one. Just because I want it lol. Little by little.
