Daniel Defense Pistols
Daniel Defense manufactures one of the best compact pistols worldwide. These pistols have been recognized to be in top rankings among others with the concept of Freedom, Passion and Precision. The most iconic dd pistol is the DD MK18.
Daniel Defense MK18
DD MK18 has grown in popularity in large part due to its utilization by Special Operators wielding it in the global war on terror. The Daniel Defense mk18 is not your regular AR-15 It will do most anything your typical AR-15 can do but better – with a couple of caveats. The MK18 has more recoil than your traditional AR-15 however it’s nothing that isn’t manageable or where the trade-off vs compactness isn’t worth it. The MK18 features a cold hammer forged barrel and accuracy is spectacular.

New & Popular Daniel Defense Firearms
Daniel Defense Rifles
Daniel Defense is well known for their AR-style rifles, starting with the original DDM4V1 that set the benchmark in the industry and was built for the needs of hardcore tactical professionals and shooting enthusiasts. Since then Daniel Defense has added several versions of the DDM4 like the DDM4a1, DD4M11 and an MK line like the MK12, MK18. The Ambush line was later created to tailor an AR-style rifle specifically for hunters. New for 2019, Daniel Defense has made their first Bolt-Action rifles with the same modularity customers experience with an AR platform, the DELTA 5.
Daniel Defense MK12
The DD MK12 rifle is considered a “special purpose rifle” in that it serves a specific function, in this case medium range precision. Originally designed for U.S. Special Operations units, the United States Navy Mark 12 Mod 0/1 Special Purpose Rifle (MK12) was at first just an upper receiver meant to be attached to an existing M16 lower. The idea was to create a rifle that was more accurate at distance than a standard M4 yet still shorter and more maneuverable than the then current M16 platform. The MK12 evolved quickly and when it entered service around 2002 it was in the form of a complete rifle, not an upper receiver group. That rifle was capable of engaging targets with great accuracy out to about 500 yards.
