    I’m looking into all these DD M4’s and I’m getting confused with the differences between all of these. Too many options can sometimes be a bad thing. I wish they’d just say, "You either want this or that." Make it simple for us noobs ha.

  2. Bryan Hernandez on December 10, 2021 at 7:04 pm

    What fore-grip is that installed in your ddmv11 and it is KeyMod correct?

  3. The Faceless Man82 on December 10, 2021 at 7:05 pm

    You may have said but if so I missed it. Does the barrel itself have a standard extension or m4?

  4. ritesideofthefence 58 on December 10, 2021 at 7:05 pm

    They absolutely have the best customer service in the industry. Thanks for another great review Mike.

  5. wuyeah1980 on December 10, 2021 at 7:06 pm

    Does this 18" upper receiver work with basic LE6920 lower?

  6. Jacob Hoss on December 10, 2021 at 7:06 pm

    I bought the 2015 version a couple days ago! I weighed it: 7 pounds flat with Blackspider Micro RedDot, AFG, magpul sights, and empty mag. Awesome video!!

  7. carribean660 on December 10, 2021 at 7:07 pm

    Love the detail descriptions 👍🏾I’m thinking of purchasing this rifle.

  8. Bennyfugazzi on December 10, 2021 at 7:08 pm

    Just bought this gun it’s my first ar15 glad to see in the comments that everyone is happy with it

  9. Kevin Johnson on December 10, 2021 at 7:09 pm

    So what is the difference between v7, v11 ???

  10. Ralph Robles on December 10, 2021 at 7:09 pm

    I have an older M4 A1. Amazing rifle. Not a KAC. But it is a tac driver. By the way. Who makes that nice leather holster for your slabside? Love it. Want one for my STI Tactical 45ACP.

  11. ronaproject on December 10, 2021 at 7:09 pm

    Just nabbed one of these bnib for $1K shipped! Looking forward to taking it to the range. Great review.

  12. We've got a Sneetch! on December 10, 2021 at 7:11 pm

    Sadly DD has gone to the dogs… These handguards can’t even withstand a 5 drop on cement without the whole thing shifting/canting… If you buy one, don’t use the LokTite that says right on it "For 1/2" to 1/4" bolts. It will end up busting the bolts off and is not the MilSpec type of blue LokTite… Use MS-222, (Purple) or Rockett. (Blue LokTite is not going to withstand the heat build up… "If" you need a replacement part, expect to pay way too much. I’ll give them props for finish quality but the design has a major flaw in the rail. Their barrel nut wrenches don’t hold up for long. Even an inexpensive Midwest Industries upper use nice large hardened thick steal barrel nut removal tools. The pistol grip design is nothing special at all, sadly it’s overpriced… Thier M16A1 "like" sights are light, but for the price, you pay you can get far better sights. The trigger groups are not very good at all. They have a service really because they would fire to rounds with one pull. Before that they where just plain out junk. They are not keeping up with modern builds. If you end up with a firearm the shoots two rounds with one pull, umm you could end up with major fine and most likely jail time. They want you to pay to send the lower in for their junk defective triggers? No thanks… I own two, I just switched to better parts, they’re where obvious problems just looking at the design. At least most new models of rails have the bolts in the front row and are enlarged… Thier best rail design was the MFR, it will always be able to be removed with ease. But yeah use Rockett… (Cermanic based, non-toxic and can be removed with a simple 24-48 water soak, boiling water will remove it in about 15 mind to an hour…

  13. Spartan Lou on December 10, 2021 at 7:11 pm

    Do you have a preference between the ddm4v7 with the govt barrel or the lw version? Seems both were equally accurate and weight is the only difference. Thank you

  14. Texan EDC Cave on December 10, 2021 at 7:12 pm

    Is The DD nitride coated barrel as accurate as this DD barrel?

  15. Morrison Adams on December 10, 2021 at 7:12 pm

    Got to hold one at cabelas… I’m getting one

  16. Constantly1Shot on December 10, 2021 at 7:14 pm

    does that free float rail have a heat shield? Is there even a need for a heat shield with a FF rail?

  17. JusAnotherUTuber on December 10, 2021 at 7:16 pm

    I love my ddm4v11 tornado grey, awesome gun!

  18. OpSec Clyde on December 10, 2021 at 7:18 pm

    Have you noticed the 4 screws getting loose after shooting a lot? I have to tighten my screws every couple hundred rounds to keep it from shifting.

  19. Austin Stringham on December 10, 2021 at 7:22 pm

    For the price I was thinking a POF USA Renegade plus was a far better value, way more features and a similar weight. But now I’m reconsidering everything as this gun is on sale at sportsman’s for $1200. Even still, I think I’m gonna go with a Renegade Plus.

  20. Mr. Mann on December 10, 2021 at 7:23 pm

    Question, my man… I assume the front sight doesn’t interfere with the vortex razor or you wouldn’t use it but what do you do about the rear sight? Is it flip up or did you omit it for now? I’m getting my DDM4V11 SLW and I’m putting a vortex on it but I’d like to use the flip ups just in case.

  21. Northeast Washington great outdoors on December 10, 2021 at 7:27 pm

    If it is pinned and welded I should be able to see it ?

  22. Anthony Thai on December 10, 2021 at 7:27 pm

    the review was great. was still on the fence but the boxer sold me haha. great rifle, great dog.

  23. Kevin L on December 10, 2021 at 7:28 pm

    Newbie here…what is the difference between V11 and Mk12 from DD?

  24. เลโอ วันเพ็ญ on December 10, 2021 at 7:29 pm

    Srad kad sli

  25. The Cold Hard Truth on December 10, 2021 at 7:29 pm

    What kinda optic are you using on the gun at @2:01 ?

  26. Zach Conant on December 10, 2021 at 7:29 pm

    quick question does anyone know that attachment system is the "less good one" I have heard many stories and videos about the v11 rail shifting from ak operators union then nutnfancys video with the v7s rial shift issue. I want to get a v7 but I may just get a v5 or bcm is DD is having trouble not alligning their rails and the rails shifting under a little force.

  27. Marc Bautista on December 10, 2021 at 7:31 pm

    Considering that has 16" LW barrel; Is the flash suppressor pinned or welded? I have googling all over and could not find the validation that they were. Just got myself DDM4V9 Tornado Grey and I am thinking of attaching Hybrid 46. Any thoughts?

  28. Eugene on December 10, 2021 at 7:31 pm

    Can the DDM4V7 be suppressed?

  29. Evan Busch on December 10, 2021 at 7:33 pm

    If only I wasn’t poor😭

  30. tridoc99 on December 10, 2021 at 7:37 pm

    What foregrip is that you are using? Thanks!

  31. Northeast Washington great outdoors on December 10, 2021 at 7:38 pm

    Just curious how you got the suppressor mounted I thought the flash guard was pinned and welded I didn’t realize that when I purchased it back in 2016 love your videos have a good day

  32. Guario Delgado on December 10, 2021 at 7:39 pm

    What kind of grip is that.

  33. SpaceBanana69 on December 10, 2021 at 7:40 pm

    Thing runs great ,super accurate ,tight groups the best I’ve ever owned

  34. Kratos Blood on December 10, 2021 at 7:40 pm

    This gun was used in the movie called Extraction /

  35. crf450r bullet david on December 10, 2021 at 7:41 pm

    Great videos, I’m looking to buy a dd in a couple months. They just really appeall to me.

  36. south africa varminter on December 10, 2021 at 7:41 pm

    Did you put a new bolt or buffer when you suppressed the rifle to not over gas it

  37. Kdglock44 on December 10, 2021 at 7:42 pm

    …also how does it handle steel ammo. Cant justify spending 1500 on a rifle i cant plink with cheap ammo

  38. M K.S. on December 10, 2021 at 7:42 pm

    Would this cycle steel case ammo?

  39. Christopher Rivera on December 10, 2021 at 7:43 pm

    What’s the main difference between the DDV7 and the DDV11? And which would you rather purchase? I’m looking into buying a Daniel Defense ar-15 But not sure which one to buy. Awesome video, keep up the great work.

  40. SayNoTo Democide on December 10, 2021 at 7:47 pm

    If you’re wondering what Machinima background music was used, it was "Battle of Kings".

  41. Christopher Rivera on December 10, 2021 at 7:50 pm

    I’m thinking of getting the DDV7 or the DDV11 which would you suggest?

  42. Chuck Cribbs on December 10, 2021 at 7:52 pm

    As a former armorer, are these better than the rifles the military gets? Just curious. They certainly are very accurate. Those groups are some of the best I have seen.

  43. Free living on December 10, 2021 at 7:52 pm

    DD makes a phenomenal AR platform. They use high quality parts, n use really good quality control. I picked up the DDm4v9 ( 15” quad rail- n for being a full length quad rail it’s extremely lightweight, it weighs 6.59lbs) I picked it up for $1,350 which for what you’re getting is really outstanding. The fit and finish is top tier for around those prices. Plus most of their rifles use a mid length gas system and it is a noticeable decrease in felt recoil compared to a carbine length gas system

  44. Andre Lave on December 10, 2021 at 7:54 pm

    Looks over gasses when suppressed

  45. Garret on December 10, 2021 at 7:57 pm

    16” or 18” on these DD’s?

  46. John Dough on December 10, 2021 at 7:57 pm

    …lol… Just made a deal on the 300 blackout version of this one. I’m also buying that Diamondback AR in 5.56. After this I must stop to save up all the ammo I forgot to buy…lol…lol…I completely slipped and let it all become depleted. …lol… This Daniel Defense stuff is way cool. Solid and no jiggle anywhere. The Diamondback is just for fun. It does jiggle but then it’s only $700 and that Daniel rifle is gonna cost me $1500. It’s only money. …lol…lol…

  47. Steve Richardson on December 10, 2021 at 7:57 pm

    So… , a neophyte asks what is the alternative to a chrome-lined barrel?

  48. Big Daddy on December 10, 2021 at 7:58 pm

    Dont waste your money on their cerakote colors ! I ordered 3 guns in Tornado , it looks nothing like pic on web page ! It looks like flat grey primer ! Great gun otherwise. Customer service 👎

  49. Jeana Bentley on December 10, 2021 at 8:01 pm

    Not sure if you already answered the question or not but how do you feel about the polymer ejection port cover?

  50. Les James on December 10, 2021 at 8:01 pm

    Cant find that shirt brother.. Lwrc m4 now that’s a nice riffle 😎
