I am about to add another M4 to my collection. I want to know what the real difference besides the 4150 barrel is between these 2 rifles . The S&W X model is Smith's near top of the line M4 with factory Troy quad rail and Troy back up sighs. About the nicest Smith. VS a Standard Daniel Defense M4 that is a couple hundred higher. Besides the 4150 vs 4140 barrels what is the real difference from you experts?

Better rail system out of the box, for one. I would also bet the QA/QC on the DD guns is significantly better than the S&W. I believe the S&W rifles also come with semi BCGs, and not FA.

Btw, the new DDM4 with their new DDM4 rail is really nice. Better looking and seems tougher (based on the new lock-up) than the older DDM4 with Omega X rail.

So with these new changes coming to Daniel defense rifles what should I do. With my wife I need to buy now. The smith or DD are the best I ca n find for the money. So I would have to buy a current DD and not be able to wait for their new models to hit stores! What to do what to do!

What are BCG's and FA forgiving my ignorance?

I have the Daniel Defense iron sights on my Ruger SR556E and they are the best darn sights I've ever seen/used. DD is way cooler than S&W, subjective maybe... but that's my opinion. Get the DD.

Daniel Defense for the win...

Go look at that Tac Tv test they did to a Daniel Defense AR - about a year ago.

If you want DI and not a piston AR, that's the brand to get IMHO

Almost all the current DD rifles that are being shipped already come with the new rail system. Only the ones equipped with the MFR (Modular free-float rail - slick tube design) won't have it.

Bolt carrier group. A full-auto (FA) BCG is heavier, and generally enhances reliability.
