History of Daniel Defense
Marty Daniel, the founder of Daniel Defense, flunked out of college—twice. On his third attempt, however, he graduated with honors and a spot on the dean’s list from Georgia Southern University’s engineering program. It was this kind of determination that aided Daniel’s entrepreneurial spirit, helping him become a small business owner right after graduating. His vision for growth and success was unmatched.
Then, in 1999, Marty Daniel visited the shooting range for the first time, and he immediately fell in love. Shooting was the perfect stress reliever and it excited his engineering mind. The more time he spent shooting, the more ideas he had for improving firearms. So, in 2000 Daniel officially created Daniel Defense with the goal of growth, innovation, and the enhancement of firearms everywhere.
The years following the inception of Daniel Defense were filled with unique innovation. The company created groundbreaking products, such as the “Big Hole Upper,” Sling Loop, and reliable rail systems. Then, in 2003, Daniel Defense (still considered a small business) went head-to-head with large manufacturing corporations and won the contract for a forend rail system solicited by the Special Operations Command (SOCOM.) Daniel Defense won this contract again in 2005 and 2006.
The first firearm that Daniel Defense designed and manufactured was released in 2009: the DDM4 (later known as the V1). Since then, the company has continued to create innovative firearms that regularly change the face of shooting. In fact, in 2012, 2013, and 2014 Daniel Defense was recognized as one of the fastest growing private companies in the USA, with 1000% growth over a 10-year period. Though Daniel Defense is only 20 years old, the company has an endless supply of knowledge, inventive ideas, and passion, and they are leading the shooting community into the future.
