Gun Review: Daniel Defense DD5V1 Rifle in .308

From Gunscom on Wednesday, March 13th, 2019 in Reviews, Rifles, & Videos
With the DD5V1 rifle, gun maker Daniel Defense followed a natural progression for AR-pattern rifles. Unlike Daniel Defense’s standard fair – AR-15s chambered in 5.56 – the DD5V1 is an AR-10 chambered in .308. Aesthetically, there’s little difference between the platforms, but the AR-10 is no easy layup for a gun maker as the design, which served as a precursor for the AR-15, as it handles a heavier round. Yet, Daniel Defense’s take on it is quite possibly one of the best available.

hold 'er Newt, shes rearin' ? Tuesday, March 26th, 2019
nice job. im fairly happy with my DD5V1.its proven 100% reliable and sub MOA accurate.between its solid performance and the incredible price my dealer gave me, $1700 out the door and the lowest price anyone has paid that ive found, its hard to complain about the DD5V1.i love its sleek, elegant and sexy styling. the entire rifle is an assembly of flowing, graceful curves. everything except for the one place some would occasionally like to hold the rifle by, the mag well.the corners of which are so damn sharp its possibly THE most uncomfortable mag well ever devised.It makes a superb pain inducing device though.WTF Daniel Defense?other than that i have few real complaints. recoil is a bit harsh but i plan to remedy that with a good brake and a blast forwarding device.ive also mounted my Primary Arms platinum 1-8x ACSS FFP scope in my ADM recon qd mount.its the ultimate CQB to long range optic for a .308 battlerifle.its a bit weighty but the overal quality and performance, capability and versatility it affords is hard to argue with.ive rounded out my DD5 with a handful of Magpul products. ive mounted MBUS pro back up sights, an RVG foregrip, a RSA para-clip sling mount and my favorite K2 pistol grip.I hated the DD stock at first but it quickly grew on me and performs very well and allows me to get all 4 fingers around the buttpad and inside the stock for a secure carry handle for using the DD5 as a $3000 walking stick when needed.a BCM pic rail bipod mount and UTG recon 360° bipod finish it off.the DD5V1 makes a damn good battlerifle imo but i feel it really makes more sense as a long range precision rifleim actually sweating the new Adams Arms P2 small frame .308 and im thinking of buying it as my battlerifle and swapping the DDs 16" barrel for a 18", 20" or even 22" barrel, maybe even carbon fiber, slapping on the new Primary Arms 3-18x ACSS R-grid 2B scope, thereby converting it into my ideal LRPR.i just gotta cough up another $1400 or so for the AA , perhaps $600-$800 for a premium carbon fiber barrel and $675 for the optic and mount.easy peasy, uhhh, gonna have to do something sleazy! lol

DD does good work still a hard sale when you could put together an aero M5E1 w/ criterion barrel and that glass for same price even less

Good review. I purchased my DD5 V1 when they were first released and have had nothing but fun with it. No issues at all over the years, just rock solid.
