Default LMT vs Daniel Defense

Have a choice of a DD M4 V5 (mid-lenght flattop, which goes well with my plan on going with electrooptics, CHF barrel) no iron sights included.

or a gorgeous LMT midlenght, monolithic stock cryogenically treated barrell nice LMT front and rear Irons included.

.. the LMT is an extra $300...
Boht seem to be in stock and available for immediate delivery.

Thoughts?

2 for DD 1 for LMT.

The LMT is sold w/ the LMT Irons . The DD is cheaper by 300 bucks but sold w/o any sights...

Another wrinkle. the LMT is only a half hour dirve away the other shop has ot ship it (I have credit for a free transfer w/ my FFL right now though)

Does either Melonite their gas tube?
Whats a better barrrel a CHF form DD or a "cryogenically trated " from LMT?

The DD CHF barrel is excellent, I've never heard of complaints. I have no idea about the LMT.

Ok I just orderde the DDM4V5.
The LMT was local and seemed even a bit cooler to me with its nice LMT Irons.. but the DD was actually the better value.

Thanks for the help fellas.
