As the finale of the Torture Test 2, 35lbs of explosives were placed under a vehicle to simulate an IED exploding during a convoy. The rifle survived, less the plastic butt stock as shown to the right, and with the slightest tweaking of the buffer tube, was able to be fired without issue.

Lighter, Stronger, Better DANIEL DEFENSE
“Whether it’s for a soldier on the battlefield or for home defense, we only make our rifles one way: to the highest possible standard. Because lives depend on it.” - Marty Daniel It’s this mindset that led to Daniel Defense being chosen as the provider of rails for the US Military’s Elite, Special Operations Command (SOCOM), as well as being the sole provider of L85 rails to the United Kingdom Ministry of Defense. The M4A1 configuration is part of the SOCOM “Block II” carbine kit and is currently used by a wide variety of U.S. forces. The DD MK12, chambered in 5.56 NATO, gives the shooter greater effective range, as would be expected from a firearm conceived from the need for a semi-automatic, Special Operations Forces precision rifle. A product of innovative design and advanced manufacturing techniques, the MK12 from Daniel Defense features an 18” Stainless Steal Barrel that is Cold Hammer Forged for a longer life and even greater accuracy.Daniel Defense takes great pride in being masters of design and manufacturing. All Daniel Defense products carry a 100% satisfaction guarantee against defects in original materials and workmanship for the lifetime of the product.

Why take a perfectly good rifle and come up with as many ways as possible to destroy it? Three reasons- 1. Because we at Daniel Defense constantly strive to test and improve our products; 2. Because you can’t truly evaluate a product’s performance until you find ways to push it to failure; and 3. Because its a hell of a lot of fun!

Daniel Defense is one of five companies worldwide that own and operate barrel production cells capable of producing Cold Hammer Forged rifle barrels. Cold Hammer Forging (CHF) of barrels has been known for decades to produce the most accurate, longest lasting rifle barrels obtainable. The Cold Hammer Forging of barrels is accomplished through intense hydraulic pressure applied at opposing angles by carbide steel hammers. During the hammering process, a mandrel is inserted into the bore while the carbide steel hammers shape the barrel around the mandrel creating the chamber, the lands, and the grooves. In addition to the aforementioned benefits, the Cold Hammer Forging process changes the micro-structure of the steel making it stronger, with a defect-free bore and the most consistent chamber possible. After fine-tuning the manufacturing process and proving these barrels to be some of the most accurate and durable currently available, Daniel Defense introduced an entire line of Cold Hammer Forged Barrels.quality control standards have never been more crucial. Sophisticated equipment, such as the Hommel Optic, Micro-VU and Bore Scope are used routinely for complex measurements, ensuring each barrel is to spec. Daniel Defense barrels are finished with both a heavy phosphate exterior coating and chrome lined, or finished with a salt bath nitride, known for superior protection against corrosion while preserving the maximum accuracy possible.All Daniel Defense Rail Systems are built to the 1913 Military Specification, and the Mil-Spec Type III Hard Coat Anodized Finish creates a stronger, more durable surface. The majority of our Rails feature a free floating design, allowing the barrel’s harmonics to be unaffected by accessories mounted to the rail system. Our patented attachment technology and state of the art manufacturing all lead to top of the line rail platforms. Whether you are patrolling a foreign land, the city streets, or your own home, your rifle can never let you down. Each DDM4 model marks the culmination of over a decade of dedication by Daniel Defense to make the best rifles in the world. We offer the highest quality AR-15 style rifles in the configurations you want most, and back them all with lifetime warranties and responsive customer service.
