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”.


New CCI Quiet-22 Ammo

CCI Quiet-22 ammoCCI is bringing out a new .22 LR cartridge called the Quiet-22.  The new rimfire round will be a low velocity round designed specifically to produce less noise when compared to a standard velocity 22 LR cartridge.  CCI claims a 75% reduction in noise.

The Quiet-22 uses a 40 grain round nose bullet and creeps along at only 710 fps.  This cartridge will function perfectly fine in any single shot or bolt action gun.  According to CCI, the round will also perform well in semi-auto firearms, though manual cycling may be required due to the low velocity.

So, why would anyone want a really slow, really quiet .22 LR cartridge?  I can think of a couple of reasons.  You may think of more.
