At the turn of the 21st century, firearms enthusiast and lifelong shooter, Marty Daniel, had multiple concepts and designs he thought would greatly improve his M16 rifle. Unable to find these parts in the commercial market, he designed and created sling loops and rails in small batches and soon found the demand for these types of products was much greater than he could have ever expected. Thus, Daniel Defense was born.

Marty set aside a small corner of the shop belonging to his other business located in an industrial park in Savannah, GA for Daniel Defense. Daniel Defense quickly took over more and more space; doubling and then tripling in size year after year. It was evident Daniel Defense required much more room to live up to its full potential. Marty designed and built a state-of-the-art 38,000 square foot manufacturing facility located in Black Creek, GA.

In 2011, Daniel Defense worked diligently to offer our customers innovative configurations of our ever-popular Daniel Defense M4 Carbine. Continual product improvement and expansion of the Daniel Defense firearms line guarantee our products are the best value in the market. The acquisition of new equipment in 2011 positioned Daniel Defense to gain new advantages in design and manufacturing capabilities, enabling us to better serve our customers.

No Daniel Defense rifle would be complete without a state-of-the-art barrel. Daniel Defense owns and operates one of a handful of barrel production cells capable of producing COLD HAMMER FORGED rifle barrels in the United States. The barrel cell, unmatched in the commercial AR market, allows Daniel Defense to bring in raw steel bar stock and produce thousands of barrels a month in multiple calibers and configurations.

This multi-million dollar investment shows Daniel Defense's, "take no prisoners" mentality, and desire to become a major player in the commercial rifle market. Daniel Defense continues to be the industry leader in the design and manufacture of rail systems, handguards and M4 rifles. Chosen to be the provider of rails for the US Military's Elite Special Operations Units, as well as being the sole provider of rails to the United Kingdom Ministry of Defense, we at Daniel Defense take great pride in being masters of design and manufacturing.

In addition to the current facility, Daniel Defense expanded our operations into another 90,000 square foot facility, which will come online in 2012 allowing us to meet the ever-growing demand for our products and better serve our customers.

All of these accomplishments could not have been achieved without the loyalty of our customers and end users of our products. All of us here at Daniel Defense thank you for your continued business. We are committed to providing you with Small Arms SolutionsTM that are Lighter, Stronger, Better…TM.
