DD M4V3 Whose got one? What do you like / dislike about it?
Thanks again for all the input / posts to my reply. I have been going back and forth on what to buy for my first AR. I thought I had settled on a complete BCM build. Even looked at Noveske Basic Recce as it was at the top end of my price range.
Well here I am looking at buying the DD M4V3. For the dollars (1200) it seems to represent "the most bang for the buck". I would like to hear the good, bad, and ugly from current DD M4V3 owners. Things like....will this gun shoot dirty / underpowered ammo? Does the stock fit well? Is the gun front heavy? I hate the stupid vertical fore grip.....
Thanks in advance, and I am at about the end of my decision making process
I dont have one I usually build my own. But it looks to be an excellent buy, it comes with 3 rail ladders, hard case, and a PMAG also. You can always take off the VFG and put something else on it. I think it might be a tad front heavy because it has a lighter MOE stock on it. But I would rather have an actual owner comment on it. There are a couple here already.
$1179 is the best ive seen (add it to the cart):

I love my m4v3. It's been reliable and accurate with the 100 round packs of federal from Wally world. It balances fine for me. The only thing I changed was the grip ( I don't like the standard AR grip). I added a Magpul MOE grip. I also don't like vertical fore grips. I just ordered a Magpul angled fore grip. Other than that I am very pleased with my rifle. I may throw a Magpul BAD lever on but that's nothing against the DD.
I'm happy with for now until I save up the funds to add an optic and other accessories
I had considered Bravo Company but decided to go with a factory built gun for my first AR.
Hope this helps. If you have any other questions let me know

Thanks for the feedback. I think I am going to order the DD as I cant see why I would want to pay an extra $200 for the BCM. I don't know why but after reading this forum for a few months it seams like Noveske, Colt, BCM are the best you can do.

should be able to, any properly built AR should eat Wolf easy
I have no experience with Wolf, but I cant see it being a problem.

This is the best midlength rifle deal out there.

There is an XVM on GB for $1,100. The XVM is identical rifle as the M4v3 but without the bells and whistles - upgraded vfg, stock, butt, rails.
I bought an XVM as my first because I like to purchase the highest quality at the lowest price and I think DD is that. I wanted to start off KISS and shoot it to find what I need and dont need.
Enjoy, you have mad a good choice.
Sounds like a great deal for those rifles!
