Daniel Defense V9™
The new Daniel Defense DDM4V9 is designed to satisfy the needs of modern shooters not only in popular shooting sports but also for tactical and defensive applications. The long, 15” DDM4 quad rail over a 16” cold hammer forged Government profile barrel gives the operator the option to have the support hand extended out close to the muzzle allowing them to drive the gun more precisely, and preventing over travel when transitioning between multiple targets. This combined with our mid-length gas system which is known to have a smoother recoil impulse allows for quick but precise rapid fire. The longer rail also affords the shooter plenty of real estate for optics and accessories and allows for maximum sight radius for accurate shooting with rail mounted iron sights. This rifle also comes with the newly designed, rugged and comfortable Daniel Defense Buttstock and Pistol Grip.

I had to send the lower to DD as soon as the gun came to my FFL. Had to have the connector in the trigger group changed out under the "Safety Notification". There are others out there in this price range that offer more for the money. Do your research grasshopper. Hinterland is great but I wish they would have made me aware of the DD trigger issues. HL said they didn't know about the " DD Safety Notification" when I called and asked. Back to the review I must give the rifle 3 stars for the marginal trigger. It is well built and the BCG runs well. The case it comes with is worthless if you have an optic. The DD mag works fine. Seems to be a bit heavy on the front end but that is to be expected with this set up.

This is simply the best AR I could ever own. The way the quadrail connects to the upper receiver is top-notch and aesthetically pleasing. Daniel Defense is known for their quality and workmanship and this rifle is no exception. As an added bonus, I received the new 32 round DD magazine in place of a regular Magpul. That was an pleasant surprise. Hinterland Outfitters provided excellent customer service as well and they answered all my questions in a timely manner. The rifle took 8 business days to arrive at my FFL, from the order date which is awesome. I will definitely purchase from Hinterland Outfitters again in the future.

I bought the V9 because of Daniel Defense's reputation for reliability and durability. While not even the LW barrel, this rifle is light, easy to operate and the mid length system coupled to the 16" barrel makes recoil easy to handle for long shooting sessions.
Hinterland provides excellent service, and keeps you up to date during the entire online purchase process.

The quality of this rifle is amazing, everything I expected & more. The main reason for the 5 star review though is because the team at hinterlandoutfitters.com did a great job with their customer service.
I knew what was going on every step of the way. They answered all questions in a timely manner & even called to make sure I had no problems. I will be ordering a lot more items from this awesome site.

This is the first AR-15 I have owned, so I don't have much of a frame of reference when it comes to comparing one rifle against another. So far, though, I have not had any issues with it. I've taken it to the range 3 times and put about 150 rounds through it.
It was all 55g Remington, and I did not have any malfunctions. Fit and finish seem good quality. There are a few spots where wear is starting to show, like where the charging handle locks into place and on the brass deflector, but I'm assuming this is normal and as long as it doesn't affect the rifle's function, I don't care.
The sights were fairly easy to adjust; however, I'd recommend using a nail rather than a bullet tip, as the detents are fairly small. Installing aftermarket parts/accessories are easy, with the exception of the pistol grip.
I could not remove the grip with physical force alone, and ended up needing to apply heat to the head of the screw, which caused it to loosen immediately.
I discovered afterwards that there was some kind of black adhesive applied to the threads. I contacted Daniel Defense customer service about this via email (it only took an hour or so to get a response by the way) and they denied using loctite or anything similar on the screw.
So be aware of this if you plan to replace the grip. The price on this rifle from this site is outstanding, considering DD lists the price at around $1500. Even without the included accessories, this seems like a very good value.
Other than these few issues I mentioned (which I would consider VERY minor), this is a high-quality rifle that I plan on enjoying for quite a while.

I had a fantastic experience with Hinterland, They had the lowest price on the rifle I wanted (I was totally skeptical that the price listed was true). I received a confirmation e-mail - It was about 10 days from order to delivery (excellent).
I forgot to send my Hinterland paperwork with my FFL dealer paperwork, a Hinterland rep contacted me and we got it squared and shipped. I received EXACTLY what I ordered (Daniel Defense M4V3) and I will be buying again from Hinterland. I have referred others to use this site based off my experience.
