Daniel Defense Delta 5 Bolt Action Rifle

You read it here first!

Daniel Defense is coming out with a bolt-action rifle called the Delta 5.

We’ve been hearing some rumblings about it and Daniel Defense released a video teasing their new bolt-action rifle last week, but we hadn’t heard of the name, nor had a sneak peak at some of the details, until now.

We don’t know much, heck we couldn’t even find it mentioned anywhere, but based on this picture from the ad published by Daniel Defense, we can learn a few things about the rifle.

As we learn more, we’ll add more information here.


Daniel Defense Delta 5 Bolt Action Rifle

Daniel Defense has added a bolt-action rifle to their line-up of firearms!

This is very interesting news – they already make great AR-style rifles and it just makes sense that they’re now entering the bolt-action rifle market – especially with the popular precision rifle market and their good reputation for quality.

From what we can tell (we think) from their picture, the new Delta 5 rifle from Daniel Defense has:

  • User-changeable calibers/barrels
  • Detachable box magazine
  • Threaded barrel
  • Custom stock
  • Adjustable comb (cheek-piece)
  • Oversized/”tactical” bolt knob
  • M-Lok on the sides of the fore-end

It appears to have user-changeable calibers/barrels because of what looks to be a large savage-style barrel nut where the barrel meets the receiver. Also, it appears that the “bottom-metal” can accept a longer magazine.

Also, the name might be giving us a clue. The word “Delta” means “change.” Is it able to change to 5 different configurations/calibers? We’ll have to wait and see.

Here’s the video that Daniel Defense released last week showing off their new bolt-action rifle.

They’re clearly going after the precision rifle competition and tactical markets.

If the price is right, this might be a winner – a commercial product from a major manufacturer offering what is typically only available as a custom build.
