The Daniel Defense M4 Carbine, V9 Lightweight is approximately five ounces lighter than the standard V9. It's designed to satisfy the needs of modern shooters not only in popular shooting sports but also for tactical and defensive applications. he long, 15" DDM4 quad rail over a 16" cold hammer forged Light Weight profile barrel gives the operator the option to have the support hand extended out close to the muzzle allowing them to drive the gun more precisely, and preventing over travel when transitioning between multiple targets. This combined with the mid-length gas system which is known to have a smoother recoil impulse allows for quick but precise rapid fire. The longer rail also affords the shooter plenty of real estate for optics and accessories and allows for maximum sight radius for accurate shooting with rail mounted iron sights. This rifle also comes with the newly designed, rugged and comfortable Daniel Defense Buttstock and Pistol Grip.
