    I personally would not spend this kind of money on a gov't barrel gun though. You could get the 16" LW for $1350 and add whatever trigger and break you want. https://www.gunsmidwest.com/daniel-d...bine-v7lw.html
    I’m. It all about LW, barrels so YMMV, but I still like a govt profile.

    At this point, you know your not getting ripped off and if you want it, just buy it. Don’t make it a house buying dilemma, it’s just an AR.

    My main gun is a BCM 14.5 ELW. Normally I think the gov barrel is dumb but in this instance I think it could be good. For a gamer type gun/shooting fast/etc. the extra weight up front can settle the muzzle down and keep things more stable.

    I own a pair of DDM4V7 light weight’s.

    My son owns a V7 with the government profile barrel. I prefer the V7lw, but I could be perfectly content with a V7 government profile gun. The V7 series are excellent guns.

    The deal wouldn't work for me.. The trigger nor the barrel are very popular options. That is why it is priced the way it is.

    I own several Geiselle triggers including the nation match and the 3 gun. The 3 gun trigger (in a V7 pro) is a great trigger for this type of rifle. I plan on buying another one.

    I own 3 Daniel Defense Rifles. I think that the fit and finish are great. I have found them all to be very accurate and reliable.

    As of this morning that is a great price. I just checked a bunch of DD models through gun.deals and everything is out of stock or closer to MSRP. If it's still there you should buy it.

    Looks like the panic buying has taken full hold of the industry.

    Its a V7 with a 16 gov barrel but it has a Geissele 3gun trigger and a brake on it. Same price as a regular V7. Thinking with that trigger its hard to pass up for the price. What do yall think?

    Id probably put an Accupoint 1-4 on it.

    I do not consider factory installed "upgraded" brakes/flash hiders to be upgrades.

    They are a nuisance that I must remove to install my muzzle device of choice.

    I managed to grab a DDM4V5 from gunbroker for a little over $1100.00 dollars. Brand new. It’s the gov’t profile barrel as I already have a similar one with a lightweight barrel.
