Daniel Defense announced the addition of M-Lok attachment rails for its DD5V1 and DD5V2 rifles. Now, consumers will be able to receive rifles with handguards designed to work with either KeyMod or M-Lok accessory attachment, depending on their personal preference.

The attachment systems are part of the 15-inch free-float MFR XS rail, which is designed to provide users with a lighter-weight rail system that ensures rapid cooling, better ergonomics and more modularity than other handguards on the market today. The M-Lock attachment points are found at seven different positions around the outside of the handguard, providing users with an incredible range of leeway for accessory placement.

The rifle features a unique four-bolt connection system that incorporates a specially designed barrel extension that secures the free-float barrel and M-Lok handguard to the upper receiver without the use of a barrel nut.

The handguard surrounds a 16-inch cold-hammer-forged barrel that features an integral Daniel Defense flash suppressor, along with a mid-length gas system that is designed to ensure reliable performance under rugged conditions, as well as reduce felt recoil and minimize wear on the internals of the rifle. The barrel also features a threaded muzzle that features a 5/8×24 TPI thread pitch.

The Daniel Defense DD5V1 rifle comes equipped with a two-stage Geissele SSA trigger, which features a 2.5-pound take-up and a 2-pound break. The gun also features an ambidextrous safety selector, magazine catch and bolt release, as well as a modular charging handle.

The rifle is built with a lower receiver that features an oversized trigger guard that provides use with gloved hands, as well as a flared magazine well that facilitates smoother mag changes. The bolt and carrier are built with an oversize cam pin, as well as an improved extractor design and dual ejectors. The overall weight of the gun is 8.3 pounds.

The latest model out from Barrett is an addition to the company’s popular REC7 DI lineup, which now features a REC7 DI AR-15 in a pistol format for a limited time.

The new REC7 DI pistol features a 10.25-inch barrel and comes in at an overall length of 24.75 inches. The total weight of the new gun is 5.45 pounds and ships with a 20-round Magpul PMag. The gun is finished in a black Cerakote coating and features a Magpul MOE pistol grip, along with a Magpul enlarged trigger guard. The fore-end of the gun is Barrett’s own enhanced BRS handguard design and features KeyMod attachment points.

The AR pistol is constructed with a match-grade barrel made with stainless steel and uses the company’s own high-efficiency muzzle device to reduce recoil. The gun also features an oversized charging handle for easy racking of the pistol, along with a specially designed gas block that features a nut-retention device for extra durability. The gun features a continuous flattop rail that reaches to the end of the fore-end, giving users a lengthened sight radius for irons or plenty of room for optics mounting.

The REC7 DI pistol is equipped with the Gearhead Works Tailhook MOD 1 pistol brace, which is billed as the most compact pistol brace on the market today. The brace measures less than 1 inch thick and provides users with a shelf that works to counter the forward weight of an AR pistol, allowing the shooter’s wrist to relax and focus on controlling the trigger. The brace is made from solid aluminum and clamps to pistol buffer tubes ranging from 1.17-1.2 inches in diameter.

The Barrett REC7 DI pistol is available in 5.56 NATO and .300 BLK and available only for a limited time. The suggested retail price on the gun is $1,899.

Trojan Firearms, based in Phoenix, AZ, took more than 30 years of knowledge and experience in precision machining and put it toward designing high-performance firearms. The latest from the company is the new PRO9V1 carbine, chambered in 9 mm.

The new Trojan PRO9V1 carbine is based on the ergonomics and controls of the AR-15 platform, but the company’s focus on the new gun was to design a pistol-caliber carbine from scratch in order to provide consumers with the most reliable 9 mm carbine possible, solving many of the issues found in many pistol-caliber carbines on the market with straight-blowback operating systems.

The Trojan Firearms PRO9V1 features an upper receiver, lower receiver and handguard that are CNC machined from aircraft-grade billet aluminum. The springs and detent pins in the lower are coated with Teflon in order to provide added lubricity, and the gun also features a flared magazine well that improves reloading.

The carbine features a 16-inch barrel that features a lightweight contour, a 1:10 rate of twist and is constructed from 4150V steel. The barrel features a nitride finish and uses a Grater Gen II muzzle brake that can be tuned according to the end user’s preferences. The gun also features an ambidextrous charging handle, as well as the company’s own adjustable drop-in trigger.

Other features of the gun include a free-float handguard that features a KeyMod attachment system that allows for easy mounting of accessories anywhere on the circumference. The upper receiver and the rail top form a continuous flattop Picatinny mounting surface for optics and other accessories. The gun also features a tension screw and a lock screw that allows users to keep the upper and lower receiver tightly matched.

The new Trojan Firearms PRO9V1 is available in two different models. The first model, the PRO9V1-G, is compatible with all 9 mm Glock magazines. The PRO9V1-M is compatible with 9 mm MBX or STI 2011 magazines. The company also sells a California-compliant version.

The guns are available in red, metallic blue and black finishes. The suggested retail price for the PRO9V1-G is $1,399, while the PRO9V1-M retails at a suggested price of $1,549.99. The California-compliant model is available for $1,449.99.
