Description

If you love a cutting-edge officially licenced platform and you're in the market for a new CQB primary, the EMG Daniel Defense DDM4® PDW SBR AEG is perfect for you. This full-metal M4/AR-15 platform is manufactured by CYMA Platinum, which of course, means incredible performance and thoroughly pre-upgraded internals to rival the best out there.

Inside the DDM4 PDW, you will find a version 2 gearbox equipped with the CYMA Platinum MOSFET, 13:1 CNC steel high-speed gears running on 8mm ball bearing bushings, a CNC aluminium silent ball bearing piston head, CNC aluminium silent double O-ring cylinder head, a quick change ball bearing spring guide and a polycarbonate piston with a full steel tooth rack. This impressive gearbox setup is driven by a powerful high-speed Neodymium magnet motor, and the result is spectacular!

Externally, the DDM4 PDW is built as an almost perfect match for the real DDM4 PDW, down to its perfectly replicated DD MFR XL M-LOK handguard, Tornado pistol grip, Grip-n-Rip charging handle and DD marked receiver, dust cover and mock bolt carrier. If you're looking for a compact AR, whether it is for CQB or a fast-moving outdoor playstyle, you can't do much better than the EMG DDM4 PDW!

Starting at the front, we can find a perfectly replicated DD linear compensator, matching the OEM muzzle device of the real DDM4 PDW perfectly. The linear comp functions similarly to a sound amplifier when it comes to Airsoft, giving this compact platform a psychological warfare advantage up close thanks to its booming muzzle report. If you're more of a sneaky skirmisher or you need a tracer for an instinct-aiming advantage, you can replace the linear comp with a 14mm CCW muzzle device of your choice, including tracer units, suppressors and alternative flash hiders.

Immediately behind the linear compensator, we come to the flawlessly replicated DD MFR XL handguard, measuring 6 inches in overall length. The handguard boasts M-LOK negative space attachment slots at the 3, 6 and 9 o'clock positions with additional slots at the upper offset angles, ready for M-LOK accessories.

The upper surface features a 20mm Picatinny rail which runs back to meet the receiver rail seamlessly, allowing for optical sights of practically any length to be mounted despite the short overall length of the DDM4 PDW. Also present on the handguard are a pair of QD sling sockets, allowing for QD sling swivels to be mounted. On the top rail, we are treated to a set of flip-up aperture iron sights, a compact set well suited to the DDM4 PDW design. The sights can be deployed by hand, and are fully adjustable for both windage and elevation.

Next up, we reach the receiver which is a stunning showcase of licenced Daniel Defense trademarks, flawlessly engraved and a perfect match for the real DDM4 PDW. The left side of the upper receiver also includes a 300BLK calibre marking in high-vis white laser engraving, together with the stylised DDM4 logo at the rear. The dust cover, found on the right side, also features DD markings and is constructed from high density polymer to match modern weight-reduced dust covers found on the latest H&K HK416 rifles as well as Daniel Defense's DDMK18.

The charging handle is located at the top rear of the receiver, and as we might expect, is a licenced Daniel Defense design. Known as the "Grip-N-Rip" charging handle. The handle is ambidextrous, with enlarged latches on either side allowing for flawless functionality whether you wear gloves or not.

Pulling the charging handle back will pop open the dust cover and reveal the mock bolt carrier with its DD trademarks. The mock bolt carrier will lock to the rear, allowing access to the rotary HOP-up unit. This unit is constructed from alloy for increased strength, allowing you to tune the DDM4 PDW for your chosen ammo weight. Once your adjustment is complete, slap the "ping pong paddle" bolt catch on the left side to send the mock bolt home with a satisfying "clank".

The fire selector switch is located on the left side of the receiver, just above the pistol grip and is a standard M4A1 mil-spec design with a textured surface for optimal traction in wet weather. The selector provides 3 modes of fire; safe, semi-automatic and fully automatic, with a 90-degree throw between each mode. The selector switch is one of the best aspects of the M4 design, easily accessible and fast to use with enough distance between modes that it isn't easy to knock out of position inadvertently.

The magazine release button is over on the right side of the magazine well, a standard M4/AR-15 push button release but compatible with aftermarket ambidextrous alternatives. The button is surrounded by a raised protrusion in the receiver, known as the "magazine release fence" and designed to prevent the mag release from accidentally being pressed as the DDM4 PDW rubs against your gear. Another great aspect of the AR-15 design, the magazine release is easily accessible from a firing grip, making for scorchingly fast reloads as long as you practice!

At the rear of the receiver, we come to the PDW sliding stock, the one area where this design deviates from the real DDM4 PDW. Though the real DDM4 PDW stock looks fantastic, it is in fact a pistol brace and would have no battery space whatsoever in its Airsoft form. With this excuse in mind, we forgive CYMA for this minor compromise! The stock offers 6 positions of adjustment, just like a normal M4 stock, and allows the DDM4 PDW to fit into positively tiny gun bags and cases.

The adjustment lever is on the right side, taking the form of a steel textured button for maximum strength and wet weather functionality. Holding the lever down will allow you to slide the PDW stock into your position of choice, allowing for almost any body type. Included in the box with the DDM4 PDW is a battery extension unit which we wholeheartedly recommend you use. Without the BEU, there is only space for an absolutely tiny battery inside the PDW stock, but with it installed, you can just about fit an 11.1V 1000mAh LiPo battery in stick configuration inside, perfect for an advanced high-power-draw platform like this!

To install your chosen battery, hold the stock adjustment lever and the steel bar on the opposite side and slide the stock bars and butt plate off to the rear. With this done, you can unscrew the buffer tube cap to reveal the Deans battery connector inside. If you're using your BEU, this is the time to install it; simply screw it on, install your battery and replace the buffer tube end cap. The BEU means you won't be able to collapse the stock into its most compact position but is worth the compromise to have easily sourced batteries which last far longer.

On the inside, the DDM4 PDW's incredible rate of fire and trigger response is down to CYMA's finest AEG internals yet. Known as the CYMA Platinum E-Edition gearbox, the version 2 GB inside is equipped with a CNC machined steel 13:1 high-speed gearset, MOSFET and high-speed motor. The gearbox shell is also reinforced in all the key places for a long lifespan, and inside you will find 8mm ball bearing bushings, a CNC machined aluminium silent piston head and cylinder head set, a polycarbonate piston with a full rack of steel teeth and a ball bearing quick change spring guide. The inner barrel is also a tightbore 6.03mm example, adding accuracy potential so this lil PDW can duke it out with the big boys.

If you're a fast mover in outdoors skirmishes or you play a lot of CQB, the DDM4 PDW will be an asset to your arsenal. With slick, modern externals, official licencing from Daniel Defense and an enviable internal feature set with little room for more, the DDM4 PDW is an incredible piece of kit!

Joule Charts

Special Instructions

These table can be used as a reference to see if the BB weight you are using will be over acceptable Joulage limits at some Airsoft Sites in the UK. To check if the weight can be used chrono your weapon using the BB you intend to use, and then compare it to the chart.

FPS, Power and Joule Limits can vary from site to site, so please get in touch with where you're going to play with in advance to avoid disappointment.

Suggested limits are based on Joulage Limit rules used Halo Mill: Proving Grounds, with a 350fps limit for Automatic Replicas, 400fps for Semi-Automatic Replicas, and 500fps for Bolt Action Replicas.

Tap the tabs below to open the relevant chart for your replica.

Suggested limits are based on Joulage Limit rules used Halo Mill: Proving Grounds, and is the equivalent of 350fps, using 0.20g BB resulting in an upper limit of 1.14j.
