Daniel Defense DDM4 PDW: New Pistol & SBR

Days ahead of SHOT Show 2020, Daniel Defense teased to a new firearm – something that looked like it could be a PDW.

Well, that’s just what they released. Say hello to the new Daniel Defense DDM4 PDW.

Available in both pistol and SBR configurations, the new AR-style weapon system is designed to be both compact and easy to transport. With a 7″ barrel, the pistol version has an overall length of 20.75″. The SBR is slightly longer at 21.0″. This suggests it should be able to fit into backpacks or specialized weapons packs like the ESS Stealth Backpack.

At launch, the guns will only be chambered for the  300 BLK cartridge. Over time, the company could introduce other cartridges depending on customer demand.

Pistol variants will be equipped with a Maxim Defense CQB Pistol Brace in lieu of a stock. SBR versions are NFA items, meaning additional paperwork and tax stamps, but you get a Maxim Defense CQB Gen 7 collapsible stock.

“I believe our new DDM4 PDW is the absolute best gun you can buy to protect your family. And protecting our families is the most important thing any of us can ever do,” said Daniel Defense President & CEO Marty Daniel. “It’s accurate, easy to shoot, and compact. I couldn’t be any prouder of this groundbreaking product.”

Additional features of these guns:

  • 7″ barrel with 1:7″ twist
  • barrels are cold hammer forged with S2W profile
  • enhanced buffer system that ensure reliable operation with short barrel, subsonic loads and suppressor use
  • 6″ MFR XL flat front rail
  • SLR M-LOK MOD2 handstop
  • linear comp to redirect muzzle blast forward
  • ambidextrous GRIP-N-RIP charging handle
  • Made in the USA (of course)
  • Pistol MSRP: $1,865
  • SBR MSRP: $1,935

Daniel Defense expects to ship both versions of the DDM4 PDW by the end of February 2020.

I don’t know about you, but the SBR with a suppressor looks like it would be a fun gun to run and worth the two stamps.

Daniel Defense 300S SBR

Daniel Defense announced the company is now selling a new short barrel rifle (SBR) chambered in 300 BLK. The gun is called the DDM4 300S.

According to the company, the gun was designed for “those demanding a high-performance, short barrel rifle chambered in the versatile 300 Blackout cartridge.” As with all of the company’s rifles, the new 300S looks good and sounds like it will be a solid performer.

Daniel Defense ISR: Integrally Suppressed Rifle

Daniel Defense ISR

Daniel Defense has already established themselves as a first rate rifle and component manufacturer, so it was no surprise to visit their booth at SHOT Show this year and find another great design:  the Daniel Defense ISR.  The ISR, or Integrally Suppressed Rifle, was designed from the ground up to be one complete package, which I explain below.  The official model number is DDM4ISR 300.

The Integrated Suppressor (IS)

Matt Mozak of Daniel Defense walked me through the latest, greatest DD rifle.  The rifle is designed to be a weapon system, and not just a rifle with accessories added.  To accomplish this, Daniel Defense developed and added their all new Integrated Suppressor (IS).  The integrated suppressor is threaded, pinned and welded to the rifle’s proprietary lSR gas block, in what Mozak called a monolithic baffel.  So the IS becomes a permanent part of the rifle, and not simply an interchangeable accessory.  The length of the barrel and Integrated Suppressor together is 16.145”.

Daniel Defense .300 BLK

Daniel Defense announced on their blog that they will bring an AR-platform carbine chambered for the .300 BLK to the market in 2012.  The new caliber will be found in the company’s M4 V5 carbine.

The .300 BLK, or .300 BLACKOUT, has gotten a lot of traction during the past year.  I’ve previously said that I expect we will see a lot of guns and ammunition at the 2012 SHOT Show introduced for this cartridge.
