I have no exper with Daniel Defense. However if you search this forum there are a lot of info from some knowledgeable people to be had here. A lot of guys have DD rifles here and talk about them on the forum, your search should be easy.

Daniel Defense is a top tier manufacturer. You can rest assured that anything you get from DD is good stuff.

I have fired a crap ton of rounds through various Colts and own a DD. I will admit the DD was purchased this winter and hasnt seen much range time. Either way you'll be good. DDs might be going on sale the end of the month if you can hold out.

Those are great choices M1, your research has served you well. BCM is right up there too. Are you also looking at midlength gas systems?

I've also shot Colts but little experience with DD. That's about to change since I just received a DD 16" midlength upper Thursday. Like mjkeat I need to get it out to the range but have a few things left to do on this build.

I have some Colts but I think of the two choices I would go with the Daniels Defence. They are built at a bench not an assembly line. Therefore in my opinion a little more TLC is applied. Also Rock River, LMT, Sabre and Stag builds some good ARs. There also may be some price advantages coming if you wait a couple of weeks because some were running AR Rifle Specials for their dealers at the Shot Show this past week?????

I have the Daniel Defense DDM4 V4 and could not say enough good things about it. Its accurate and has never had a FTE or FTF of any kind in over 1000 rounds. Its my go to AR.

some people have mixed feelings about CMMG, but i have had good luck with their products. Not a big "assembly line" production either. You can catch some good deals if you look online.

Agreed. All four of my AR's have at least the lower receiver from CMMG, and two are complete CMMG. I just didn't bring it up because the OP only asked about Colt vs. DD.

What will the application for this rifle be??

Nothing wrong with Daniel Defense, but their name gets thrown a lot when people are "researching" only to find out they are planning on buying product "A" for application "X".

A little more information might help us save you some money in the long run.
