M4 Carbine Larry Vickers Signature Series

The Daniel Defense M4 Carbine Larry Vickers Series is a semi-automatic tactical rifle chambered in 5.56 NATO. Larry Vickers is a popular tactical trainer and TV show host and actually helped design the limited edition carbine.

The Vickers Series has full-length RIS II (Rail Interface System) handguards. These handguards are free-floating, so when the barrel heats up and swells, it won’t press against the handguards. 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. And it’s capable of holding an M203 grenade launcher.

It also 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, adjustable BUIS sights plus the Aimpoint Micro Mount red dot scope, a vertical fore-grip, a VLTOR butt stock is 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.

It also includes all of Vickers’ favorite accessories like a Surefire flash suppressor and X3000 flashlight.

Daniel Defense recommends the Vickers Series for military, law enforcement or personal security.
