The Daniel Defense M4 Carbine XV EZ is a semi-automatic tactical rifle chambered in 5.56 NATO. Daniel Defense specializes in making M4-style carbines and accessories. The company has nine models available and all of them meet military specifications and have similar actions.
What allows the XV EZ to stand on its own is its short EZ CAR 7 handguards. These handguards are free-floating, so when the barrel heats up and swells, they won’t press against each other. It has 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 XV EZ is also less expensive than other models, but it lacks a vertical fore-grip.
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 fixed rear flip sight and fixed front sight, 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 XV EZ for military, law enforcement or personal security.
