Daniel Defense (DD) has a new 10.3"-barreled integrally suppressed tactical AR SBR (Short Barreled Rifle) called, appropriately, the Daniel Defense M4 Carbine (DDM4v7-type) ISR-300 Blackout (Integrally Suppressed Rifle). Introduced recently at SHOT Show 2013, the new little suppressed 300BLK SBR looks pretty badass and primetime-ready.
An interesting aspect of the DDM4 v7 ISR is that, according to the DD rep we spoke with, it only requires one federal tax stamp (under NFA). It's DefenseReview's (DR) understanding the one tax stamp is for the in-house-developed integral muzzle can (silencer/sound suppressor) that's permanently attached to the cold-hammer-forged barrel (giving the weapon a carbine-length barrel section), not for the SBR aspect. However, as a suppressed weapon, it's still an NFA weapon, so all NFA rules apply.
If you're looking for a cool, quality-manufactured integrally suppressed 300BLK tactical AR SBR, DR recommends you give the DDM4 ISR-300 Blackout a serious look. It's pretty nice, and it's outfitted with the DD MFR 12.0 modular free-float rail tube, making it a DDM4v7-type SBR. DR likey.
The following information comes from the Daniel Defense website and has been slightly modified and/or reformatted:
The Daniel Defense DDM4ISR (Integrally Suppressed Rifle) 300 joins our family of precision-crafted M4 Rifles. The ISR takes advantage of the best characteristics of the 300BLK by integrating key components into one package, eliminating the need for two separate tax stamps. While the rifle utilizes a 10.3” barrel, it is not classified as an SBR (Short-Barreled Rifle) because the suppressor is permanently attached. The DDM4ISR 300’s sound suppressor is threaded and welded to the proprietary ISR Integrated Gas Block, bringing the barrel length to 16.145”. While the rifle is at the 16” legal limit, the ISR’s integrated suppressor will require an NFA tax stamp.
Using the tool provided, the ISR’s baffle core is removable for cleaning. With the inclusion of the Daniel Defense Modular Float Rail (MFR) 12.0, it provides the shooter with the ultimate in modular adaptability. This rifle can be run “slick” with an uninterrupted top rail that runs the length of the tube. In addition, the 3” Modular Picatinny Rail sections allow the end user to customize the rail set up.
This firearm is a regulated item by the National Firearms Act (NFA). Please check with your local and state municipalities for any further regulatory requirements. It is the buyer’s responsibility to make sure they comply with all NFA rules and applicable laws.
