    Out of the box both are excellent weapons. Were you will notice the difference is in the trigger. Larue use Geissele triggers and DD use their own. Can't go wrong with either IMO.

    LMT definitely belongs in the mix as well as noveske in my opinion. It's really just looking at the options and what of those options you want in the rifle. All are great companies.

    I've been very happy with my dd and when I wanted a 308 I went with the LMT.

    I have a DD M4 V7 and love it, I did change out the trigger though. It's a very accurate rifle! I also ordered a LaRue PredatOBR, both rifles are in 223. Still waiting for them to start producing the LaRue.

    I think the Larue product is premium, followed closely by Daniel defense. With that said, in premium AR's, they are equal in reliability. Bravo Company makes excellent rifles as well. I choose Noveske.

    I bought a Daniel Defense M4 Carbine, v7... can not believe that a 16", 1:7 twist barrel shoots that good.
    Shoots everything from 55 grain to 77 grain SMK under 1".
    Amazing firearm... Think I am going to sell my other AR, which is a Rock River and get another Daniel Defense.
    Never would have belived there could be that much difference in quality.
