The Daniel Defense M4 Carbine, V5 Lightweight is approximately five ounces lighter than the standard V5. It’s perfectly adapted for end-users who plan on attaching the ever-popular red dot, holographic or magnified optics to their firearm. The slick top monolithic upper receiver provides operators with valuable top rail real estate for accessories that fit their shooting needs. The DDM4v5LW is equipped with a single pinned low profile gas block that is drilled, taper reamed, and press fit into place to securely attach the low profile gas block to the barrel assembly. Introduced in 2014, the V5 LW is one of 4 models that is finished with the new Mil Spec+ Cerakote. This rifle also comes with the newly designed, rugged and comfortable Daniel Defense Buttstock and Pistol Grip.

This is one of the better AR's I have owned. It has a very tight construction, is lightweight, and really strong and durable. The Cerakote finish provides even more protection to rifle...and looks slick! Daniel Defense's new DD furniture is awesome too - very comfortable with the rubber gripping. I would recommend this gun to anyone - new or old gun owner.
