DDM4 V7 New Skin

Black rifles are habitually discriminated against so, as per normal, the new DD rifle got a new skin. Yes, it’s rattle can, as every rifle should get.

The Daniel Defense DDM4 V7 is a lightweight profile with these components:

  • Battlelink minimalist stock
  • AIM Surplus NiB BCG
  • Truglo Trutec red dot optic
  • PSA Milspec single-side selector switch
  • Protac 1000 lum light w/tape switch
  • Cloud Defensive tape switch mount
  • Magpul MBUS Pro iron sights
  • Blue Force Gear Vickers padded sling
  • CMC straight 3.5lb drop-in trigger
  • Odin Works Atlas 5 muzzle brake
  • Raptor ambi charging handle

Rifle Bill Drills

Now that the new DDM4 V7 is all setup I took it out to try and make it fail with reloads, mag dumps, and other fast-shooting strings. Part of that was a series of Bill drills. Here are a few runs. I dig how the muzzle stays pretty darn still (Odin Works Atlas 5 FTW!). Hits here at 15 yards were all hand-sized groups or smaller. I’m quite sure I could do fist or smaller if I were trying. Love this rifle!

Muzzle Device is the Odin Works Atlas 5, trigger is the CMC 3.5 straight trigger, all on my Daniel Defense DDM4 V7 lightweight model.

You’ll notice here that my irons are down. That’s an anomaly, as I put them down for when I re-confirmed zero before training. Just didn’t put them back up, but I typically keep front and rear up 100% of the time when using my red-dot optic.
