    How to make performance better (DD)/spare parts

    Hey guys, I'm new to ARs when it comes to do's,don'ts- parts- brands etc. I've been reading the stickys like crazy.

    I recently got a Daniel Defense (DD) v5 with ecotech 512 and BUIS

    I was wondering 2 things.

    1) how can I make my Daniel defense better? I love the rifle, thinking about maybe getting one stage trigger for ligther pull.

    Also what does the bolt upgrade with the oring and heavier spring for the extractor do?


    2) I want to get a spare parts kit, what parts should I really focus on?

    Also when it comes to lube I want something that will last! Not to turn this in to VS. thread but is motor oil as good as everyone saids? Been looking at slp2000 ewl.

    Thanks!

    i think your choice of words should be the first thought in your mind in the future.

    Bad choice of words on my parts.

    sorry, for derailing your original post. ;-)

    i am new at all of this with rifles. i've been searching a bunch and reading tons of posts from those who have a lot more experience with all of this than i do.

    i'll step aside, as i am interested in any responses you may receive, too.

    Since you are new to ARs. In answer to #1: shoot it...a lot.

    The DDM4v5 is pretty much GTG out of the box. Shoot a couple thousand rounds through it and see how you like it before replacing parts that don't need to be replaced.

    Any money spent now needlessly switching stuff around would be better spent on ammo.

    What about spare parts kit/ the extractor mod..is it totally necessary?

    Sounds like a solid carbine. Best to go shoot it, take some classes.
