I’d been waiting for this opportunity.
I’d already reviewed the Daniel Defense M4V7 chambered in 6.8 SPCII with an Aimpoint Micro T-1 mounted on top a couple of months ago. What I hadn’t done was go chase wild hogs with this combo, and I was more than a little eager to make that happen.
Opportunity presented itself at one of my favorite places to hunt, the Spike Box Ranch just outside Benjamin, Texas. It borders the land I first hog hunted on, the place where seeds of Special Hog Weapons and Tactics™ were discovered. I had less than twenty-four hours on the ranch, and less than that to hunt. I'd never come up empty handed here, and was hoping to log another successful hunt. This time, I brought a bigger gun...
What is quality? You read a gun review, and it seems like more often than not you get something like this: “With a name like X, you know you’re getting quality.” With the number of solid AR-15 manufacturers in the market today, there’s probably some truth to that. Some aspects of a gun are more important to user A than to user B, so a bit of subjectivity might be allowed here.
This will be our first look at the Daniel Defense M4V7, a unique configuration in the less common 6.8 SPCII chamber. We’ll take a look at the most obviously unique part of the build, the Modular Float Rail (MFR) compared to other rails, the 6.8 round this rifles shoots, and some finer points of importance in the quality department.
Not only do I really like hog hunting, but I’ll have to admit that I’m a major gear nut too. I really like trying all kinds of new guns and gear for my passion, Hog Hunting. Being in the gun industry, opportunities abound. While I’m constantly trying new products, I’ve settled on certain guns and gear as necessary and my proven favorites. Why these? I'll tell you more in a minute, but over 1000 hogs have agreed with me that the use of this gear in competent hands is pervasively effective.
While cool guns and optics are a blast to read about, look at pictures of, and handle, a few more mundane products are essential for hog hunting success. We’ll call these our necessary gear. I'll tell you about my favorite hunting vehicles, binoculars, Night Vision gear, and of course, my favorite go-to guns. There might be a couple that surprise you. I've loaded this article with pictures you won't find elsewhere, inclouding guns we haven't made available to the public yet.
