Been looking at the DD M4 Carbine with the full rail and the DD M4 XV that is more equipped like the Charles Daly M4LE.

Is it more important to be able to use 30 round mags and have to run a featureless build, or more beneficial to run fixed 10 round mags but have a forward grip and pistol grip? What situations is the pistol grip and forward grip necessary.

If I go featureless then I feel the DD M4 Carbine is going to be a waste of money since it has that full rail to use the forward grip and I might as well just get the Charles Daly M4LE or the XV. Any thoughts?

I feel like the 10 round mag is going to be so frustrating. It will just be a high powered version of my 10/22. Why/when do you want to have the BB/10 round mag and "evil" features vs featureless but full capacity.

depends on your shooting style - for someone who prefers it, it's necessary. for someone who doesn't, it's not. To each his own

As I told you, the rail does more than just hold a vertical grip. It's free floating, allows light attachment, and allows a more forward hold

pimp guns for fun & range shooting


The Peach State Gun deal for $1650 with 1k rounds of .223 makes the M4 $150 more than the XV. For that $150 you get the MOE grip & stock, VFG and rail - a savings of about $200 over what you would pay otherwise. It's a good value

The CD M4LE is a good rifle. Resale value will be substantially lower (disproportionately) vs. DD.

Thanks for the reply, I'm just ready to "pull the trigger" on a purchase so this definitely helps. sounds like I can't go wrong with the M4 carbine since its such a good deal and I can always just put a MMG/BB later to run 30's.

rifles like this are fluid.

They're adult tinker-toys. It's almost impossible to stay with one configuration (or one rifle), if you have the $.

it is if it sells for its asking price.

Add an LMT complete lower and you're GTG.
