Daniel Defense 14.5" 5.56 M4A1 Rifle with 12.25" M4A1 RIS II and Pinned Flash Suppressor - MIL-SPEC+
The Daniel Defense M4A1 utilizes a cold hammer forged 14.5" 41V50 chrome moly vanadium steel barrel built to true MIL-SPEC with a 1:7 twist rate, M4 profile, heavy duty phosphate finish, and incredibly durable hard chrome lining. The Daniel Defense Extended Flash Suppressor has been permanently pinned and welded to the barrel to bring it to the required 16" minimum and keep the rifle safely out of NFA territory. What truly makes the M4A1 is the handguard: the Daniel Defense's M4A1 RIS II quad rail that has been in use by SOCOM's SOPMOD II weapon systems for more than a decade.
Topped off with rugged and ergonomic overmolded pistol grip and stock made from glass-filled nylon, and Daniel Defense's Mil Spec + Cerakote finish and you have a rifle that's ready to meet almost any task head on.
- Enhanced lower receiver with flared magazine well and rear QD sling swivel cup.
- Reliable carbine length gas system balanced with a heavy buffer for smooth recoil.
- M16 cut MIL-SPEC bolt carrier group with properly staked gas key and chrome lined bore.
- 12.25" M4A1 Rail Interface System (RIS) II provides plenty of accessory space and includes 3 rail covers.
- Effective flash suppressor is pinned and welded to meet 16" minimum barrel length.
- Daniel Defense overmolded pistol grip and collapsible stock.
- Finished with Mil Spec + Brown Cerakote.
This AR-15 rifle also features an M16 profile bcg that has been Mil-Spec magnetic particle inspected to ensure all angles are properly machined to the proper dimensions. The carrier is also chrome lined to make it extremely durable and able to withstand the high temperatures and pressures of 5.56 ammunition. The gas key has been properly staked to prevent it from backing out after many years of shooting. The direct impingement gas system features a pinned low-profile gas block CNC machined from 4140 hardened steel with a phosphate coating. The flash hider is made from 17-4 PH stainless steel and has a salt bath Nitride finish for excellent corrosion resistance.

Can't go wrong with the DD M4A1 and Primary Arms is the place to go.

This is a fantastic package. Everything is mil-spec+. My only small complaint is that the trigger pull is gritty. Not heavy, this is after all a duty gun, but very inconsistent pull with a dirty break. I am going to put a few hundred rounds through it and see if the condition improves or it will need to be serviced.The quality of materials is very good and overall I am very satisfied with the firearm.
