Black Creek, GA – July 20, 2016 – Daniel Defense, manufacturer of the world’s finest firearms and accessories, has taken suppressed weapons to the next level with the release of their new DDM4ISR rifle. This new rifle, designed for fulltime-suppressed fire and optimized for the .300 Blackout cartridge, features a fully integrated suppressor attached to its barrel, so it’s ready for suppressed service right out of the box.
“This revolutionary rifle simplifies suppressor usage by eliminating variables and uncertainty,” said Daniel Defense VP of Sales Bill Robinson. “There’s no need to attach a suppressor and wonder if it’s mounted correctly and properly aligned. And no need to re-zero the weapon for suppressed vs. unsuppressed fire. The suppressor is literally part of the barrel.”
The high-performance suppressor—constructed of durable, heat-resistant metal alloys and coated with a protective high-temperature Cerakote-C finish—features a user-serviceable baffle core that can be easily removed for cleaning and maintenance. It is permanently attached to a 9-inch Cold Hammer Forged fluted barrel with a target crown for superb accuracy and reliability. Because the suppressor is a permanent part of the barrel, extending the barrel to the NFA-required 16 inches, the firearm is not classified as a Short Barreled Rifle (SBR) and only requires a single tax stamp, for the suppressor.
Everything else about the DDM4ISR is classic Daniel Defense. It features a pistol-length gas system and comes standard with an MFR XL 15.0 modular handguard, which features a continuous 1913 Picatinny rail on top and Keymod attachment points at the 3, 6, and 9 o’clock positions. This longer handguard, in conjunction with a DD Buttstock and Pistol Grip, make this ergonomic rifle highly maneuverable and as versatile as the .300 Blackout rounds it fires. A resilient Mil Spec + Cerakote finish protects the rifle from the elements and adds to its overall aesthetic.
Available in states where suppressor ownership is legal, the DDM4ISR has an MSRP of $3049.00 Learn more or purchase this rifle by visiting danieldefense.com or an authorized dealer.

Looks like SLR Rifleworks will be introducing a new muzzle device soon. Over the past week or so they have leaked 3 photos showing a new product called the Titanium Hybrid Linear Comp. From the photos it appears to feature a solid Titanium body that, like other linear comps, is designed to force the concussion from each shot forward away from the shooter or anyone standing near that shooter. It also incorporates an end cap with ports. Not a ton of information is available just yet. For now all we can say is, it looks awesome and is something we will keep an eye out for. As soon as more info is available you can bet we’ll be sharing it here on AR15NEWS.
I’ve always shot my Glocks a lot but ever since I built my Quarter Circle 10 9mm AR I’ve been shooting them even more. Recently I had the opportunity to add the Rainier Arms MARS (Magazine Advanced Release System) ambi mag release in my G17. If you’re thinking….”I shoot right handed so I don’t need an ambi mag release” keep reading.
Typically ambi controls are designed to benefit left hand shooters but this ambi mag release was actually designed to help right hand shooters. On a Glock, many right handed shooters have to break their grip to reach their thumb far enough to activate the standard mag release consistently. Left handed Glock shooters typically use their Index or Middle finger to use the mag release which is actually better as it does not require that you change your grip on the gun.
The MARS fixes this by adding an ambi mag release on the right side so right handed shooters can now use their Index or Middle finger to release the magazine. They have also extended the mag release button on the left side making it even easier for left handed shooters to access with their Index or Middle finger.
Whether you shoot predominantly Left OR Right hand doesn’t matter with the Rainier Arms MARS. Its a great upgrade for any Glock pistol shooter and has functioned flawlessly in my G17. Rainier Arms has just made these available for sale on their website and are offering them at an introductory price. Regular price is $66.45 but the Intro Price is just $59.95. If you happen to be a Rainier Arms APEX member, your price is just $49.95. Head on over to www.RainierArms.com to snag one at the intro pricing.
The new Griffin Armament Low-Pro RIGID rail kits are now available! The kits include your choice of a 8.6″, 10.5″, 13.5″ or 15″ complete Griffin Low-Pro RIGID™ MLOK rail system, Griffin Primo Gas Block, Griffin Rail Shield 4-piece rail cover kit and the Wrench and Hardware to mount this kit to your weapon. If you are looking for a nice upgrade to your current rifle or looking to finish off a build, these kits are a high quality yet surprisingly low cost option. Check out the press release, pics and video below. You can purchase these kits now at www.GriffinArmament.com.
Griffin AR15 rail kits include rail panels, gas block assemblies, and all tools and hardware needed for a turnkey rail system.
The design objective for the Griffin Low-Pro RIGID™ rails were to provide a slim, ultralight M-LOK rail, with increased rigidity over current similar market options.
“We had been looking at the market for a while and noticed that there were two types of rails essentially. Rails that were beefy and strong, and rails that were slim and unfortunately weaker. We wanted to combine the desirable attributes of both category products into one optimal rail system.”, Austin stated, Primary owner and Lead engineer for Griffin. He went on, “The final design resulted in 70% more rigidity than current similar market slim rails. This is important for those who need to use IR lasers as armed professionals or for hunting. There are a lot of great options now in IR laser aimer products that have solid mounting and solid bodies and we wanted to make a slim rail that provided industry leading point of aim / point of impact for those aimers.”
Low-Pro RIGID™ rails feature a 7075 aluminum barrel nut which can be installed with the included Griffin Armorers Wrench. The mounting is done with included shims and flat head cap screws for an ultra-flush and low profile mating to the receiver. 17-4 stainless QD flush cups are included which thread into the barrel nut through holes in the rail.
The kits include the Griffin Primo Gas Block™, a 416R stainless .750” ID gas block which can be set screwed in place and / or pinned.
Additionally, the rail kits include the Griffin RAIL SHIELD™ panels as standard equipment. This 4 piece kit provides a 4.6” length surface for heat protection and griping. The user can choose to use the flat bottom panel or angled grip panel for enhanced recoil control.

I just happened to run across these new “Billet 4o” receiver sets by ATX Armory yesterday and man they are pretty sweet looking. Apparently the name “Billet 40” comes from all of the 4o degree angles on the receivers. There literally isn’t a square inch area that doesn’t have some neat detail work done to it. Even the underside of the trigger guard looks sick. Most of the machining appears to be in an effort to lower the weight of the receivers which combined come in at just under 1 pound. The receiver set is also compatible with the Battle Arms and Rainier Arms short throw ambi safeties. Check out the pics and details below.
ATX Armory has built the finest receiver set money can buy without compromise to quality! Our model “Billet 40” gets its name from the 40 degree angles featured throughout the design, which took us nearly a year to perfect.
– Precision CNC from Aerospace Aluminum Billet 7075-T6
– Integrated Trigger Guard with Custom Details
– Forward Assist (Not found on similar high end receiver sets)
– Multi Cal Markings for Various Build Types
– Upper/Lower Tension Screw Setup (No Slop in this set so not Needed but Machined)
– Edges have been De-Burred for Clean Smooth Finish
– Compatible with Mil Standard AR Lower/Upper Receiver Parts
– High Quality Hard Coat Type III Anodized Finish
– Weighs 15.2 oz.
If you’re in the market for a unique looking billet receiver set for your next build, definitely give these a look. I know I might be doing that myself. Check them out at www.ATXArmory.com.
As an avid AR owner/builder I have lots of experience piecing together rifles and the tools that are required to do that. I’ve used pretty much everything from the super cheap to pretty pricey when it comes to Armorer’s Tools. Most of your “inexpensive” Armorer’s Tools are, for the most part, made for the AR owner who will build a rifle once or twice a year and are prone to marring you rifle parts and tend to break during use. Some just flat out don’t work as advertised and are a “jack of all, master of none” type of design. I’m always looking out for the next must have armorer’s tools. Geissele Automatics did it with their Reaction Rod and now it looks like Fire 4 Effect has done it with their new F4E AWS (Armorer’s Wrench Set).
Instead of one wrench that is supposed to do everything, the F4E AWS consists of 3 separate wrenches including a Barrel Nut Wrench, Castle Nut Wrench and Muzzle Device Wrench. This design made it so the portion of the wrench you are trying to use is positioned in the center with an extended handle on both ends of the wrench. On each of those handles are cutouts for use with a torque wrench and the suggested torque settings are actually etched on. The Castle Nut Wrench has an amazing design to it that doesn’t allow it to tear up your castle nut or buffer tube and the Barrel Nut Wrench features 9 points of contact that are all replaceable if one gets bent. Just seems like an extremely well thought out set of wrenches. Check out the pics, video and details below.
NEW PRODUCT ANNOUNCEMENT!
The Fire 4 Effect team is proud to announce the F4E Armorers Wrench Set! Developed by Master Gunsmith and former Army Marksmanship Unit NCOIC Matt Haidu the Armorers Wrench Set or AWS consists of a Barrel Wrench, Castle Nut Wrench and Muzzle Device Wrench.
Manufactured from water jet cut mild steel that has been CNC milled, laser engraved with a custom cerakote finish the AWS is designed to provide a lifetime of use for the AR15 armorer. Each wrench has a life time warranty.
The Barrel Nut Wrench provides 9 points of contact on the barrel nut and features hardened steel roll pins which can be easily replaced by the individual armorer.
The Castle Nut Wrench uses recessed castle nut lugs for improved lock up during assembly and disassembly. The Castle Nut Wrench also doubles as a Receiver Extension / buffer tube wrench.
The Muzzle Device Wrench features a alignment groove to assist armorers while indexing muzzle devices.
Torque wrench attachment points have the corrected torque wrench calculation engraved on the Muzzle Device Wrench.
The Muzzle Device Wrench also features shoulder inlets to accommodate crush washer expansion.
All wrenches incorporate 2 handles for balanced manual torque application during assembly or reassembly.
PROUDLY MADE IN TEXAS!
Individual Wrench Price:
– Barrel Nut Wrench: $129.99
– Castle Nut Wrench: $119.99
– Muzzle Device Wrench: $79.99
– Complete AWS Price: $300.00
If you are a serious AR build, not just a once a year builder, you will definitely need to get your hands on a set of these awesome wrenches. Fire-4-Effect offers a 10% MIL/LE discount with appropriate credentials. You can order your AWS at www.fire-4-effect.com
A while back Arisaka Defense started offering their own take on the popular Scout Light to go along with their awesome Scout Mounts which have proven to be so popular they have had a hard time making enough light bodies to even keep them in-stock. With the success of their Scout Lights soaring, Arisaka looked for another cost effective option for their customers who needed something now and have found that in the Streamlight ProTac lights.
The Steamlight ProTac lights come with a standard picatinny rail mount that attaches to the light body the same way any other scout mount does. Arisaka has started carrying the Streamlight ProTac 1 and 2 cell lights and pairing them with their awesome Arisaka Scout Mounts at extremely affordable prices.
Coincidentally Arisaka Defense actually has 300 Series Scout Lights, 600 Series Scout Lights and the Streamlight ProTac 1 and 2 lights all in-stock right now so you have tons of options to choose from and customize a light that best meets your needs. Check all of these options out at www.ArisakaDefense.com.
