Daniel Defense Releases DD5V1 7.62 Rifle

October 05, 2015  | 

Daniel Defense—engineer and manufacturer of firearms, precision rail systems, and accessories—has announced the release of a new rifle for the 7.62 x 51mm NATO (.308) cartridge. The new DD5V1 incorporates more than a decade of expertise from Daniel Defense engineers and designers.

“I couldn’t be happier with the way this rifle turned out,” said Daniel Defense president and CEO Marty Daniel. “Our engineers utilized existing technology where appropriate and developed entirely new designs when necessary to optimize the performance of this gold-standard rifle. Those who demand legendary Daniel Defense quality and the increased range and terminal ballistics of 7.62mm ammo are going to be very pleased with this rifle.”

With innovative features like a 4-bolt connection system, an optimized upper receiver, an improved bolt carrier group, ambidextrous controls, a configurable modular charging handle, and a cold-hammer-forged barrel, the DD5V1—although built around a traditional AR platform— establishes a new tradition in 7.62 rifles. It also features a Geissele SSA two-stage trigger for precise fire control. Even with all of these features, plus a DD Superior Suppression Device and 15-inch Picatinny top rail, the DD5V1 weighs only 8.3 pounds. 

The DD5V1 rifle has an MSRP of $2,899 and will be available for purchase beginning October 23rd from authorized Daniel Defense dealers or directly from Daniel Defense at danieldefense.com.
