New Products: Daniel Defense, InForce & Burris

Attention military rifle cloners! Brownells Chief of New Product Procurement Paul Levy has a public service announcement for you: the Daniel Defense M4A1 Upper Receiver is now available EXCLUSIVELY from Brownells! It’s essentially identical to the upper on the M4A1 SOCOM Block II carbines Daniel Defense supplies to the DoD, with a forged 7075 aluminum receiver (minus charging handle and bolt / carrier group – you’re going to customize those anyway, right?) and the SOCOM Picatinny handguard in Flat Dark Earth with white T-marks. The chrome-lined 14.5″ barrel’s ½”-28 tpi threads are begging for your favorite muzzle device.

Next, the new Brownells Retro Rifle AR-15 barrels are available in various lengths, with or without a front sight base / gas block installed. These are lightweight “skinny” profile barrels with 1-7″ rifling and the older M16-type barrel extension. The InForce Wild2 weapon light will fit easily on your M4A1 upper and many pistols, too, including Glocks with a light rail. AND this little light pumps out 1,000 lumens of bright white illumination for 1.5 hours. Finally, the Burris RT-25 5-25x56mm rifle scope has all the features PRS shooters are looking for, including a quick-adjust paddle for changing magnification, locking zero-stop turrets, and the popular “Christmas Tree” reticle.

    $899 + shipping for a forged (not billeted) upper with no BCG, charging handle, sights or muzzle device?? And it will require an SBR tax stamp unless you use a pistol brace. No thanks.

    Give your money to DD so they can do what Springfield and RIA did….. no thanks man, y’all shouldn’t even be pushing that crap to us.



  3. Justin Lecroy on December 9, 2021 at 7:05 pm

    900 $ for a upper with no bolt or charging handle, price gouging to the max!!! . bet their excuse is corona lmfao.



  4. Santana Gaming Cinema on December 9, 2021 at 7:07 pm

    I can’t find any of these upper receivers



  5. range finder on December 9, 2021 at 7:08 pm

    $899 for this piece of metal with no sights or charging handle, and you said it with a straight face: you are in the wrong job sir,…you should be a politician.



  6. Chuck Finley on December 9, 2021 at 7:10 pm

    Primers, we want primers



  7. denbo74 on December 9, 2021 at 7:10 pm

    Does DD actually supply the entire upper to the US Gov or just the rail?



  8. I wish I knew that when I was your age on December 9, 2021 at 7:13 pm

    Inforce code says 100 lumens



  9. GatCat on December 9, 2021 at 7:13 pm

    What a horrible deal, $900. Lol, 😂 no thanks.



  10. Dyzastrus on December 9, 2021 at 7:14 pm

    Put the 4 prong (fh556rc) flash hider on the dd upper and it will be worth it. That flash hider alone is going for $3-$400 on the secondary market.



  11. Liberty Cave WS7PB on December 9, 2021 at 7:14 pm

    No 2 of my ARs put together cost what that upper cost. Even my AR 10 cost less.



  12. Stanley Hall on December 9, 2021 at 7:14 pm

    No muzzle device no bcg. No way



  13. Gonzo 4251 on December 9, 2021 at 7:14 pm

    Is the retro line going to be restocked soon been wanting to grab one for a while ?



  14. Lucas Trujillo on December 9, 2021 at 7:15 pm

    Great new items thanks for showing



  15. cleckler71 on December 9, 2021 at 7:15 pm

    So with taxes and shipping close to $1000 and no BCG or charge handle? That excessive!



  16. BIG LOU on December 9, 2021 at 7:16 pm

    $179.99 for 100 lumens, no thank you.



  17. TheYakkis on December 9, 2021 at 7:17 pm

    Up next is the Daniel Defence upper equiped with ‘fucking nothing’ except this 20lb. quad rail. It keeps the cost below $3000.00 ………..



  18. Woodrow Call on December 9, 2021 at 7:19 pm

    Got the Wild2 on my sidearm, I’m enjoying it so far, we’ll see how it holds up.



  19. Tim Schuh on December 9, 2021 at 7:20 pm

    Glad to see Burris finally stepping up in the glass game.



  20. Sampson lll on December 9, 2021 at 7:21 pm

    The DD M4A1 upper also features a SOCOM profile barrel. Worth every penny.



  21. Carrera4K on December 9, 2021 at 7:21 pm

    Hey! I just bought a Burris scope and a Burris scope mount. Are they any good? Is it made in the USA?



  22. David Cortese on December 9, 2021 at 7:21 pm

    …."without the BCG and charging handle so we can keep the cost down a bit to you…." yikes. DD is good stuff for sure, but end of the day, adding all the missing parts ($), a 5.56…. on advice from my wife, I will have to give a pass….



  23. Kevin Wgm on December 9, 2021 at 7:29 pm

    lmao i love how most of these comments are just shitting on DD for their excessive prices. Not even including BCG or charging handle is like a final slap in the face as they take 900+shipping from you. Prices for a standard upper receiver and decent barrel would be $300 ish TOPS. Yea…fuck off.



  24. A. Hunter on December 9, 2021 at 7:29 pm

    Restock the damn retro series.



  25. Geektarded on December 9, 2021 at 7:29 pm

    Those rails make great cheese graters and will take all the skin off your hands if you need to get rid of callouses.



  26. I'm a misanthropist on December 9, 2021 at 7:32 pm

    Sounds like the majority of you guys buy AR parts from PSA or have Del ton or Anderson ARs. News flash…. everything DD is expensive. If you don’t like the price, don’t buy or cry about it, simple.

  28. Woodrow Call on December 9, 2021 at 7:34 pm

    Can confirm that 7 of 8 DD Mk18s will survive a fall from 30k feet and still function.

    I wouldnt take the Daniel Defense upper if it was free.



  30. C R on December 9, 2021 at 7:37 pm

    Keep those DD uppers coming they are 🔥



  31. Kentucky boy on December 9, 2021 at 7:38 pm

    If a bcg and charging handle was included at this price….. Maybe.



  32. TheNewNoise7 on December 9, 2021 at 7:39 pm

    Is the Daniel defense barrel the true M4A1 SOCOM profile barrel? Or is it just a gov’t profile barrel?



  33. pap 93 on December 9, 2021 at 7:39 pm

    Is Davidson defense the same thing



  34. Mach 6 on December 9, 2021 at 7:42 pm

    Y’all release this right after I buy a new rifle. I would’ve bought the DD upper but now I’m broke lol



  35. art mallory on December 9, 2021 at 7:44 pm

    3:11 looks like the text says 100 lumens?



  36. I wish I knew that when I was your age on December 9, 2021 at 7:44 pm

    Burris is crap



  37. derka41 on December 9, 2021 at 7:46 pm

    Anything that says " DD + block" reddits obese lunch bunch operators will purchase.



  38. animalmother556x45 on December 9, 2021 at 7:48 pm

    Yaaaaaayyyyyy more things for the #poors to bitch about!



  39. Mark Mitchezee on December 9, 2021 at 7:50 pm

    WTF ? M4A1 Socom Upper Receiver Group for $899 minus the BCG & C. handle 8? NINE HUNDRED DOLLARS for a nice barrel, mil-spec receiver & "modem" 2004 Handguard ? What a Joke.
    Im scared to even ask how much their8 BCG & Charging handle are ? Or … I can purchase a POF AR-15 for the ssme price or less with actual modern technology ? Heavy profit margin goim on there !!



  40. Rob Laurente on December 9, 2021 at 7:53 pm

    MK18 upper is cooler. Glad I snagged mine real quick from Brownells.



  41. bud prepper on December 9, 2021 at 7:56 pm

    899 for that upper? Too high, better deals available. Hey DD, we are not the govt. $$$$$$



  42. Dustin Tate on December 9, 2021 at 7:56 pm

    The DD URG is not 100% correct. The barrel profile is slightly different and the gas block should be an unpinned Mk12 gas block. The pinned gas block that is on there is currently used on the URG-I, not the RIS II URG.



  43. abnr1983 on December 9, 2021 at 7:57 pm

    I don’t know what it is, but watching Brownells videos is so soothing and calming. 😂



  44. B Tankersley on December 9, 2021 at 7:58 pm

    Oh boy! I can’t wait for the a1 service rifle build



  45. Lyndsi Gardner on December 9, 2021 at 7:58 pm

    Lmao “keep the cost down” 😂😂😂 just build your own upper it’s way cheaper!



  46. Planet Nine on December 9, 2021 at 7:58 pm

    What is the barrel profile of the DD M4A1 upper? Is it the same as the Colt M4A1 barrel?



  47. TWG on December 9, 2021 at 7:59 pm

    Burris forever warranty is a joke. They make you pay for shipping when obviously the scope had a manufacture defect. Go vortex instead.



  48. richard cranium on December 9, 2021 at 8:00 pm

    I could have sworn i seen you guys selling these stripped daniel uppers for around 600 before…
