The Daniel Defense M4 Carbine V9 Strength to Weight was designed to satisfy the needs of modern shooters not only in popular shooting sports but also for tactical and defensive applications. The DDM4v9 S2W is equipped with a heavy 18" S2W profile Cold Hammer Forged barrel, covered by the DDM4 Rail 15.0, 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 overtravel when swinging 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.
