Daniel Defense
Founded in 2000 by Marty Daniel, Daniel Defense is a Georgia-based, family-owned firearms manufacturer known for its high-quality AR-15-style rifles like the Daniel Defense DDM4 V7, stellar AR-pistols, precision bolt-action rifles, and rifle accessories. DEGuns is proud to sell all Daniel Defense products including DDM4 rifles, DD5 semi-automatic rifles, and gun accessories. With a focus on precision, quality, and customer service, DD handles nearly all aspects of production in-house. This includes the use of a cold hammer forging process for durable barrels and a robotic Cerakote finishing line. Daniel Defense's commitment to excellence and value is supported by a 300k square-foot state-of-the-art facility. All of Daniel's products are designed, engineered, and built to perform under any condition for a lifetime. The "let's build it ourselves" mentality echoes through everything they do today. From cold hammer forged barrels to CNC machines to mill turns, Daniel Defense's state-of-the-art Black Creek facility is set up to make the parts for their rifles. As American employees working American jobs - DD is dedicated to defending our freedom and defending the second amendment. Because, without the teeth of the Second Amendment, there is no First and no America as we know it. As a family-owned business, Daniel Defense holds family in the highest regard. Each employee is part of the Daniel Defense family, and if you own a Daniel, you are too. Once bitten by the shooting bug, Marty Daniel spent most of his spare time behind a rifle. The more he shot, the more he recognized the need for a flattop upper receiver. This led him to design the “Big Hole Upper.” Marty found a local machine shop to manufacture a run of 100 of his unique uppers and kept four for himself. He then set up a website, which he used to sell the remaining 96. In 2001, Marty attended the Knob Creek machine gun shoot in West Point, Kentucky, where he displayed his first sling loop. His unique design repositioned how a web sling attaches to a rifle. Rather than threading the front and rear swivels, Marty’s design utilized a simple end plate he engineered in his free time. It changed the idea that a sling had to be mounted at the front and rear of an AR, instead placing the sling attachment point at the rear of a receiver, secured by a castle nut or fixed A2 stock. One side of the sling attachment features a loop to thread a web sling through, making it an option for users of single- and three-point sling systems. Continually considering new ways to enhance an AR, Marty dedicated himself to making the AR platform more functional and more intuitive to use. He set out to replace the ribbed two-piece handguard with one that allowed shooters to attach accessories, such as lights, lasers, and bipods. In 2002, Marty learned that his 12-inch rail systems had made their way onto the competition and designated marksman rifles used by the U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit (USAMU) at Fort Benning, Georgia. The USAMU would continue to rely on Marty’s first rail system until 2009. In January of 2003, Marty participated in the company’s first SHOT Show, the firearm industry’s largest trade show, where manufacturers come together to introduce and promote their wares. There, in his 10x10 booth, representatives of the U.S. Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC), Crane Division approached Marty to develop and submit a forend rail system for an upcoming contract solicitation issued by the Special Operations Command (SOCOM). In order to raise the necessary funds required to participate in the solicitation, Marty approached his father, who decided to support his son’s vision by literally betting the farm. The fourth-generation family farm was used as collateral to acquire a $250,000 loan. That money allowed Daniel Defense to purchase the materials, equipment, and inventory to create a rail for the M4. Still a small business, in 2003 Daniel Defense went toe-to-toe with every major defense-industry manufacturer for the SOCOM contract. Marty developed and submitted prototypes, relying on sales of the original M4 rail system and sling loops to carry the company through 2004, when the contract was awarded to Daniel Defense, the lone David amongst a slew of Goliath competitors. Daniel Defense once again emerged as the victor of the competition for this SOCOM contract in 2005. In 2006, Daniel Defense delivered the first RIS II forends to SOCOM, right on schedule. In 2007, Marty learned of a design solicitation in the works by the UK Ministry of Defence (MOD) to update the standard-issue SA80/L85A1 infantry rifle. He wasted no time going to work designing and prototyping a system for the L85 based on measurements taken from a rare U.S. sample in private possession. Because no other manufacturers had convenient access to this rifle, Marty’s company had a distinctive edge. In 2008, Daniel Defense won the UK solicitation and began immediate production and on-time delivery of L85 rails. While still in the Garden City facility, Marty’s team of engineers designed the first-ever Daniel Defense firearm: the DDM4 (Later referred to as the V1). The original Daniel Defense rifle was a mid length gas system, had a 16” barrel, Mil-Spec upper and lower receiver, and the Omega X 12.0 FSP rail system with the signature rail section that extends beyond the forged front sight base with bayonet lug. This firearm also has a standard A2 Birdcage flash hider, A1.5 Fixed Rear Sight, A2 pistol grip, Mil-Spec receiver extension, and a Magpul buttstock. As quickly as the company was growing, it needed a new facility that could keep pace. Daniel Defense began operations in their 38,000 sq. ft., state-of-the-art Black Creek manufacturing facility in early 2009. With the new facility came new capabilities. Marty made a significant investment when he purchased a hammer forge machine to manufacture barrels for Daniel Defense and, ironically, even some of his competitors. Marty Daniel owned one of only a few hammer forge machines in the U.S. at that time and increased his output by purchasing a second machine a few years later. Making the barrels himself got Marty to set his sights on making everything for the AR platform in-house and then assemble these parts around the finest barrels available. In 2010, Daniel Defense branched out into the hunting market under the brand name Ambush Firearms. The first Ambush Firearms featured a 16” lightweight profile barrel chambered in 6.8 SPC and had a modular handguard with shotgun-inspired hand grip that offered a touch of familiarity to hunters. In 2015, Ambush Firearms was consolidated into Daniel Defense, and “Ambush” became the company’s premium hunting line. Daniel Defense decided to enter the suppressor business and recognize the pending success of the .300 Blackout cartridge. He did so with the release of a brand-new platform: the first Integrally Suppressed Weapon System, the DD ISR. This new platform, chambered for .300 Blackout, was unveiled at the 2013 SHOT Show. Two years in the making, in 2015, Daniel Defense introduced its first AR-10 platform: the DD5V1. Marty insisted on throwing every bit of the company’s world-renowned expertise, know-how, and experience at the project to create a whole new evolution of this weapon. The groundbreaking DD5 stood alone from all other platforms, with innovative advances in materials, coatings, and performance-driven design. It continues to set a new standard in a 7.62mm rifle. Marty inspired his design engineering team to develop a suppressor of superior quality and performance. Since the weakest parts of most suppressors are the welds, The DD WAVE utilizes DMLS technology, a process also known as 3-D printing, which uses no welds. After a long development process to get things just right, the product was introduced in April 2017 to consumers at the NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits in Atlanta. In autumn of 2017, construction of Daniel Defense’s new 300,000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art manufacturing facility was completed. Phase I consisted of 232,000 sq. ft. of manufacturing space and 68,000 sq. ft. of office space. Operations from the two previous facilities, Black Creek and Ridgeland, South Carolina, consolidated under one roof in Georgia. At SHOT Show 2019, Daniel Defense introduced the DELTA 5 world-class bolt action rifle. Combining the modularity of our AR platform with the custom features the best shooters want right out of the box, the DELTA 5 brings the Daniel Defense brand to a whole new group of shooters. At SHOT Show 2020, Daniel Defense expanded its product offering with the introduction of the DDM4 PDW AR pistol and SBR. Compact and easy to transport, the DDM4 PDW can be relied upon for home and personal defense. “I believe our new DDM4 PDW is the absolute best gun you can buy to protect your family. And protecting our families is the most important thing any of us can ever do. It’s accurate, easy to shoot, and compact. I couldn’t be any prouder of this groundbreaking product,” said Daniel Defense Founder & Executive Chairman Marty Daniel. Built with the same legendary quality as their longer, larger kin, the DDM4 PDW pistol and SBR get the job done with their accuracy, reliability and durability and feature our 100% satisfaction guarantee. In the fall of 2020, the company expanded its bolt action rifle line with the introduction of the DELTA 5 PRO. Featuring an innovative chassis design, this rifle comes guaranteed to shoot sub half MOA. “We believe this is the most accurate production rifle in the world. If you are new to long range shooting and just want to have fun with your friends, it will make it easier for you to get on target faster. If you’re more experienced and compete in PRS matches, it is a gun you won’t outgrow given the rich feature set it comes with right out of the box,” said Daniel Defense Founder & Executive Chairman Marty Daniel.
