So I just picked up my new DDM4V5 today... I noticed right away the markings on the left side of the reciever "5.56" and towards the buffer tube "DDM4V5"...

Is this something new DD is doing on their rifles? I've never seen this before...

Thanks!

Congrats on your purchase! I picked mine up last week (1st AR). Can you post a picture as to exactly where it is? I don't see anything like that on mine.

the "5.56" marking is above the magwell on the left side. The "DDM4V5" is on the left side as well near buffer tube...

BlueSun: what year is your DDM4V5?

Why is your rear sight so far forward?

That looks pretty cool. Mine doesn't have it :(

I'm not sure how to find out when it was manufactured.

You still have the tags that were attached on the trigger guard? The white tag shows who inspected, test fired and cleaned... then at the bottom, shows the date...

Mine shows 3/20/2012...

My DDM4 V4 does not have either of those markings. Mfg date 2/2012

I'm digging the Model Number markings though. Very cool :cool2:

Gearing up for AR's in various calibers as the new norm, 300, 5.56, 6.8, etc.

Thanks. I remembered I tucked the paper under the foam inside the case. Mine is 1/20/2012.

Interesting... I emailed Daniel Defense... hope they could shed some light on this... I'll let everyone know as soon as I hear back from them...

UPDATE:

Daniel Defense emailed me back. What they said was..

"The markings that you are seeing are the new norm for Daniel Defense carbines. This is to identify the weapon as a Daniel Defense weapon versus an outside assembled weapon utilizing our components. It also specifies caliber for safety purposes..."

So there it is... straight from DD

Enjoy guys!!
