A NEWER VERSION
“DD5V2? Didn’t Daniel Defense launch the DD5V1 this past year?”
Yep, it sure did, and it’s a fantastic gun. It’s so fantastic that the V2 is virtually identical to the V1, aside from 18-inch barrel vs. the original 16-incher. The extra 2 inches on the 18-incher, which adds
0.3 pound to the total weight of the gun, increases its accuracy.
Another variation is the V2’s rifle-length gas system. In contrast, the V1 has a “midlength” gas system. The gas-system length increases with the barrel length.
The result? The DD5V2 is a smoother-shooting rifle with a tad less recoil. The rest of this rifle is still all DD5.
