Daniel Defense M4 Carbine V4 LW

Description

The Daniel Defense M4 Carbine V4 LW is a semi-automatic tactical rifle chambered in 5.56 NATO. Daniel Defense specializes in making M4-style carbines and accessories. The LW has identical features to the V4 and even costs the same, but it, of course, weighs less.

The V4 LW has a mid-length Omega X Rail 9 handguards. These handguards are free-floating, so when the barrel heats up and swells it won’t press against the handguards. It has four Picatinny rails running along the top, bottom and sides, which allow for easy mounting of optics or accessories. The top runs continuously and meets with the upper receiver. The V4 LW is also available with fixed sights, flip sights or no sights.

It has a short-length gas operating system, so propellant gases are caught in a tube near the muzzle, the tube guides it back to the bolt and then catches in another tube on the bolt. When the gas is caught, it drives the bolt back. This delays recoil until the projectile has left the bore. Short-length means that the gas is caught after a short distance in the barrel, so more pressure is used to push the bolt back.

Features include a chrome lined bore, a vertical fore-grip, a MagPul buttstock that’s lightweight and adjustable, a cold hammer forged barrel, so a machine carefully carved the grooves in the bore. This process produces accurate and durable rifling. And it has a sling swivel attachment points, so users can attach a combat sling, which allows them to sling it while carrying it at the ready.

Daniel Defense recommends the V4 LW for military, law enforcement or personal security.
