Ask most professionals which AR has proven reliable in almost any condition, and Daniel Defense will likely be part of the conversation. The company’s AR might be the most cost-effective on the market, having proven itself in the harshest conditions.

Built with the working professional in mind, it is built to last. Simple direct-impingement gas systems, solid and strong handguards, and significant attention to detail make them the perfect choice for a duty rifle.

Daniel Defense starts with its forged CNC machined 7075-T6 and Type III hard anodized aluminum receiver. It includes an enhanced flared mag well and rear quick-detach swivel.

A Mil-Spec trigger and internals keep things simple. Its glass-filled and soft-touch overmolded stock covers a Mil-Spec tube using an H buffer. A matching forged upper receiver holds a chrome-moly Vanadium steel, cold hammer-forged barrel. An M16 profile bolt carrier group is MP tested, chrome lined and properly staked. Rail panels made from Santoprene (heat resistant to 300 degrees) keep you in control under hard and fast use. Daniel Defense handguards remain the first choice among many elite military units.

After testing several Daniel Defense rifles over the years, I’ve found all to be completely reliable. Whether suppressed, short, long — no matter the configuration — they simply work.

Priced competitively, Daniel Defense offers a solid performing rifle — proven in the field — for a reasonable price. Officers can apply for a discount or financing for their purchase.

Daniel Defense might be the most officer-friendly AR builder in the world, perfect for any retailer looking for an AR for use as a duty rifle, or for any other purpose a proven AR can fulfill.
