  1. OH NO!! NOT DANIEL DEFENSE! According to some people that is the best rifle in the world! Will they recuperate from a recall?

  2. For what they charge for thier products, one would think that this type of issue (that can and does)land the firearm owner 10+ yrs in prison/loss of rights and 250.000 in fines,would “never” happen. Stop bragging about your extremely over priced systems until ya’ll can correct the issues that plague your products.

  3. mine double fired numerous times and hung on the trigger numerous times. My gun dealer told me to get a “new hobby” as these were the best rifles made and nothing was wrong with the trigger. Who’s the dumbass now??
