Ambush Firearms, the hunting branch of Daniel Defense, was at the 2014 SHOT Show in Las Vegas to show some of the updated features on its Ambush line of ARs. The Ambush rifles feature a standard, cold hammer forged barrel with salt bath nitride finish and are outfitted with a 12-inch modular free-float hand guard, which protects the barrel while giving plenty of real estate for hand placement or accessories. They come standard with a BCM Gunfighter charging handle, in-house buttstock and pistol grip, and 2.5-pound Geissele trigger. The Ambush rifles are currently available in three caliber offerings — 5.56 mm, 6.8 SPC II and .300 Blackout — with a suggested retail price of $1,799.
