The Daniel Defense M4A1 features the M4A1 RIS II, which has been in use by US Special Operations Command (SOCOM) for the SOPMOD II Weapons System since 2005. The M4A1 features a 14.5” Cold Hammer Forged M4 Profile barrel with a permanently attached Daniel Defense Flash Suppressor. The new independently ambi GRIP-N-RIP Charging Handle accommodates left- and right-handed shooters and is engineered for suppressed fire, with anti-gas features that redirect gas flow upward and away from the face and operator. The M4A1 is available in black as well as our Mil Spec + Cerakote. This rifle also comes with the rugged and comfortable Daniel Defense Buttstock and Pistol Grip.

Just picked one upJust picked mine up yesterday. Hands down the best M-4 I’ve ever handled and I’m a War Veteran. A-1 build quality and feels like an extension of my body. Couldn’t be happier! RIS II hand guard is second to none. A true Battle Rifle ready for war!
Made the right decisionYesterday, I bought one of the last pieces available in my country for the near future. My feeling about the purchase? I got exactly what i expected and more. But I have to admit that the price took me a while to go for the rifle. Even more because there was only one left in "Mil Spec +". Well, let me describe it like this. I'm a lucky owner of a SIG P210-2 9mm pistol. Maybe one when not the most beautiful crafted semi-automatic handgun ever produced. This beautifully crafted rifle also is second to none.
FUN FUN FUNI was a little disappointed in the beginning with the chambering. It just kept misfeeding.i actually put it away for years. Then I purchase steal mags for it and every week I can't wait to shoot it again!!! Can't go wrong! I chose the MIL SPEC+ and I just love it!
Worth every pennyThis is by far the best AR I’ve put my hands on. I purchased my M4A1 this past summer after years of wanting one and I couldn’t be happier. The quality and craftsmanship can’t be denied! I’ve put a wide variety of ammo through it and it just slings it out no problem. I’m up to about 4,500 rounds.
Excellent! Could not be better!My favorite right away! It's accurate, and a lot of fun to shoot, inspires confidence, I'd recommend it to anyone.
Great rifle. Great customer service.Bought an M4A1 for my birthday and I couldn't be happier with my purchase. Fun to shoot, easy on the eyes, and simply a rugged weapon. Then you talk about customer service, I just talked to Ken in warranties, literally the nicest guy ever (requesting a catalog and a few other items). Great rifle, great company.
Quality In Every PartI was overwhelmed with the superior quality of my new Daniel Defense M4A1. The rifle looks and feels like a piece of fine craftsmanship. A pleasure to shoot! I am the envy of my friends.
Better than what I was issued in the Navy.Great rifle, still waiting for my background to clear but can’t wait to put it to work.
Outstanding riffleThis rifle has been my introduction to firearms and my first AR15, and it is one fine piece of machinery. The quality of this item has helped me become familiarized with a AR15 platform greatly. This rifle is awesome, cool looking, and just amazing, the guys at Daniel Defense are putting out grade A1A products. This is a definite buy item if you love AR15 platform or wish to purchase your first rifle and are unsure of where to start, DD is the way.
Go-to rifleI own many AR’s and this is by far my favorite. I’ve put about 5,000 rounds through it so far, everything from match ammo to cheap steel-case and I’ve never had a malfunction. Very well-made rifle!
