Tell me about the Daniels Defense, I am not up to date with that.
I'd say if you're looking for a new one, look at Daniels seriously. Really good quality. Black Rain
is pretty good too but they're getting a bit expensive. Not that i'm an expert. I ask my partner and my Granddads. They live and breathe shooting.
My baby is a DDM4V11SLW (this one
). 5.56mm, 14.5" barrel length, weighs just over 6lbs. It's totally factory-standard, haven't modified it at all yet - want to shoot it more than a few times before I play around with it. Really comfortable to shoot, well balanced and easy for me to handle. I like the low weight, makes it easier for me to work with, and their magwell is really well designed for reloads. I've put a couple of thousand rounds through since I got her and finding myself a lot more accurate than with my old rifles.
Was my Xmas present - my old one's a rather well-used Ruger SR-556 (pink with Hello Kitty decals of course...) and an old and battered Sig-Sauer. Got a Ruger SR-9 and own little Remington 870 20 gauge as well but I'm not so good with that. Need to practice more with that one. Shooting a .308 just kills me. Too big for me to handle easily.
My partner has the big guns. I bought him a Black Rain Ordnance Predator .308
and a couple of thousand rounds for his birthday last year. His friends all wanted to steal me. LOL. His old one's a Sig Sauer 716 DMR along with a couple more of his own .556 rifles and a Remington 870 12 gauge and some 1911's. I shoot them all just so's I know how to use them but I find the 1911's a bit tough.

Lessee; some 1911's in .45, a couple of nice S&W's in 9mm, a .380 Ruger, a S&W .22 target, a 3" Ruger SP101 in .357, an original peacemaker (which I've only ever only shot ONE ROUND through), some reproduction 1860 Colt Navy's, a .25 Colt Mustang pocket gun, a safe queen 20ga Mossberg pump, a battlefield pickup Carcano in 7.35Cal, a nicely scoped Vanguard in 30.06.
I envy you your DD. We can't have the fun stuff here. At least not legally.
But this is all just a fond reminiscence. That boating accident I mentioned earlier took them all to a watery grave years ago.
Ohhhh, those accidents. Such a shame when that happens. And you have nooooo idea where they are.
I'm sure if the elections had gone the other way some of ours would have gone to a watery grave as well. Or fallen into a ravine up in the mountains. Or something.
Sounds like quite the collection,

Of course not. It's those darn sneaky little hobbits I'm really scared of.
