Daniel Defense rifles at Omaha Outdoors comprise some of the most sought-after firearms in the gun world, with their products consistently being rated as among the best on the market.

Daniel Defense Rifles and Pistols For Sale at Omaha Outdoors
A dizzying array of Daniel Defense rifle options can be found in the Daniel Defense online catalog. All of these options are to be considered premium models; Daniel Defense does not make budget guns or budget parts. They're a high-end rifle maker and it shows with every product they sell. The AR15 rifle is probably the most produced rifle in America, and you have many options when selecting one of these rifles. The Daniel Defense MK18 for sale at Omaha Outdoors, for example, is not the only MK18 clone on the market. What sets it apart from the rest? Let's explain why Daniel Defense should be on your list.
Those seeking a modern interpretation of the iron sights M4 rifle – modern might sound odd since the M4 is a relatively new design, but the Global War on Terror has rapidly accelerated rifle development – should take a long and hard look at designs like the Daniel Defense M4A1. It has a 14.5" barrel just like the M4, except this one is an upgraded cold hammer forged barrel, and the Daniel Defense RIS II rail in use by special operators for over a decade.
The Daniel Defense DDM4 V7 for sale at Omaha Outdoors is an even more modern interpretation of the M4 than the DD M4A1 and offers cerakote options in colors that are both tactical and beautiful. It's also the first DD rifle to feature the new M-LOK Daniel Defense handguard that is extremely light and extremely functional. Options include lightweight and super lightweight barrels in addition to the Pro model which is set up for rifle competitions.
If you want a rifle in the new 300 Blackout caliber, you've come to the right place. Daniel Defense has more 300BLK rifles than you can shake a loaded 30 round magazine at, and all of them are extremely well-made rifles with the same hammer forging process used to make their 5.56 barrels. Because 300 Blackout does not require as long a barrel as 5.56 to achieve optimal velocity, the 10.3" barrel length of the MK18 actually works out to a pretty ideal length for an AR15 in 300BLK, be it a pistol model with arm stabilizing brace or a factory SBR. Hunters needing a rifle in 300BLK should check out the Daniel Defense Ambush, offering a 16" barrel for wringing every last single digit of velocity out of the cartridge, and these rifles are available in popular hunting camo patterns like Kryptek Highlander and Realtree Xtra. Finally there's the DDM4ISR, an integrally suppressed rifle in 300 AAC Blackout meant to be fired with its silencer attached at all times and providing outstanding sound reduction especially with subsonic ammo.
Daniel Defense Barrels, Accessories, and Parts
If you want to build a rifle using the best components but have your own tools, skills, and receivers in mind, using their parts and barrel is a great way to go. As a Daniel Defense dealer we have access to the best supply of AR parts on the market, including an ideal lower parts kit, the sought after MK18 handguard rail in FDE, mags, flash hiders, in stock Daniel Defense upper receivers, and their famous hammer forged barrels.
A cold hammer forged barrel is made by drawing a barrel blank over a "mandrel" or mirror image of the inside of the bore while the outside of the bore is being pounded in perfect synchronization by massive "hammers" the size of anvils. It's a very expensive process to get into, and the fact that Daniel Defense is doing this shows their level of commitment to making quality parts. While every method of barrel manufacture can produce an extremely accurate barrel with proper attention to detail, there is a strong argument that a hammer forged barrel carries certain metallurgical properties that contribute to longer life under sustained use and abuse.
