Daniel Defense unveils new Delta 5 bolt-action rifle at SHOT (VIDEO)

Georgia-based Daniel Defense this week drew a crowd by lifting the curtain on their newest offering: a modular bolt-action rifle that offers custom performance without the wait time.

The new Delta 5, available in .308 Win, 6.5mm Creedmoor, and 7mm-08 Rem, has a user-interchangeable, stainless cold hammer forged barrel that comes suppressor-ready with 5/8x24TPI threads. Equipped with an adjustable single-stage Timney Elite Hunter trigger, the action includes a three-lug bolt with a 60-degree throw and removable knob.

User-configurable with adjustable cheek risers while the buttstock’s height and length of pull can be changed, the stock includes 11 M-LOK points for accessories.

Barrel length varies by caliber from .308 Win (20-inches) to 6.5 Creedmoor and 7mm-08 Rem, which come in at 24-inches. Likewise, the weight starts at 8.9-pounds and goes to 9.5 with the longer barrels.

“At Daniel Defense, we’ve mastered the art of making custom quality guns affordable for those looking for the very best,” said Marty Daniel, the company’s president, and CEO, going on to say the Delta 5 “is an extremely accurate and durable bolt-action rifle.”

MSRP is $2,199.
