Our Assessment: Colt’s most recent return to the civilian market comes with a shiny new Carbine. The M4A1 Carbine offers great quality and a sweet in-hand feel especially with the Daniel Defense Rail that was utilized in Factory for the Top Tier feel we all come to expect from Daniel Defense. This rifle is factory greasy and feels new in hand and radiates the confidence of reliability Colt has produced for generation after generation. This configuration is the same that the U.S. Army uses with their M4A1 Carbines all in a Semi-Auto package. Colt sets the standard for AR15 builds, and what better way to bolster your gun collection than add one of these to it? Good Luck!
