Daniel Defense is a family-owned and privately held firearms manufacturer in Black Creek, Georgia. Founded in 2001 by President/CEO Marty Daniel, the company started from Marty’s vision to create custom accessories for his M-16 rifle.

An avid sportsman and supporter of the 2nd Amendment, Marty Daniel committed himself to producing a product unmatched in quality and precision. Just 18 years later, Marty Daniel’s concept has evolved into one of the most recognizable brands in the firearms world, manufacturing the world’s finest AR-15 rifles, rail systems, and accessories for civilian, law enforcement, and military customers.

Today with a combined 300,000 sq. feet of manufacturing space, Daniel Defense has maintained a commitment to quality and continuous improvement.


Daniel Defense has partnered with industry-leading manufacturers to build small batches of once-in-a-lifetime rifles, the Limited Series.

The Limited Series rifles are sold on a first-come, first-served basis. So, the best way to get your hands on one is to sign up for insider notifications and be one of the first to know what’s coming and when it’s available. But act fast because once these limited-edition rifles are gone, they’re gone for good.


The limited-edition, collectible DELTA 5 PRO – IMPACT is the first bolt-action and 6.5 Creedmoor rifle to be part of a Limited Series build. It takes the best, out-of-the-box feature set of their bestselling DELTA 5 PRO and adds many extras to enhance the performance and aesthetics of this long-range tack driver.


The chassis base allows for the mechanical bedding of the action with a metal-on-metal design that protects against changing weather conditions. Its scalloped cut allows for lower height over bore even with scopes with large-objective lenses, an adjustable single-stage Timney Elite Hunter trigger, and a custom Splatter Camo Cerakote finish that’s as cool looking as it is protective.


The interchangeable barrel is cold hammer forged to contour from a proprietary steel blend with a black Cerakote finish, replace barrels or change calibers with ease thanks to its modularity and proprietary barrel nut.

An AREA 419 Hellfire muzzle brake offers the ultimate recoil reduction and muzzle rise.


The adjustable buttstock offers length-of-pull and butt pad height adjustments without the need for tools, an ergonomic left/right adjustability to accommodate user preference, an adjustable cheek riser, and an AR-15 grip attachment that’s interchangeable to accommodate the user’s preference for aftermarket grips.


It includes a Leupold Mark 5HD 5-25×56 Riflescope with an Area 419 35mm Scope Mount with Diving Board, which is Area 419’s initial run of this mount and not yet available to the general public except on the IMPACT.

The Delta 5 PRO – IMPACT comes shipped with a few extras, including a Cole-Tac rear Woobie and Flat Bag with ARCA Backbone Mount and a Certificate of Authenticity to prove this rifle is one of only 40 like it on the planet.

That’s all for now, folks! Please keep sending in your questions, tips, and article ideas. And as always – “Let’s Be Careful Out There.”
