The rights guaranteed by this section shall be unalienable. Any restriction on these rights shall be subject to strict scrutiny and the state of Missouri shall be obligated to uphold these rights and shall under no circumstances decline to protect against their infringement.

Daniel Defense M4 Carbine V7
Only one of four of Daniel Defense’s rifles finished in MIL-SPEC + Cerakote, the DDM47 (M4 Carbine V7) rifle goes beyond the typical black rifle. Chambered for 5.56mm NATO, the DDM47 includes a 30-round Magpul PMag and Daniel Defense’s redesigned polymer buttstock with soft grip overmolding. The upper and lower receivers are CNC-machined 7074-T6 aluminum, while the barrel, chamber and bore are cold-hammer forged. This is not where Daniel Defense’s attention to detail stops. The level of quality in the making of its bolt carrier group is unfounded. The M16-profile bolt carrier group is not only chrome-lined and MIL-SPEC MP tested, but the gas key is also chrome lined and attached with properly staked fasteners. The 12.0 Modular float handguard with three-inch Picatinny rails is Type III hard-coat anodized. Rounding out this beautiful Made in the USA rifle is a Daniel Defense pistol grip with soft overmold.
