Default What to do with my DDI MOE

I have a Hungarian DDI MOE with the fenocite 4140 barrel. I have never had any problems with it, but now that DDI's name is absolute crap I am trying to decide whether to try to sell it or just keep it and live with the shame

What say you?

Your Hungarian parts gun is fine. Don't worry about the name unless it's IO inc or Hesse

This. I also have one and it is excellent in function and accuracy . It was originally a pistol and came with the UF trunnion. I added a unissued bulgy UF and had the flash hider blind pinned.

OP,

If you enjoy it and don’t have any problems with it, keep it.
If you don’t want it and need the extra funds, than ofc sell it.

And if you want my opinion. Ignore the haters. The DDI rifles that were built using Bulgarian and Hungarian parts were fine.

you have a parts kit DDI rifle, again most of the time, Those are good to go.

I have 2 DDI parts kit rifles myself. And I’m very glad to own them. Their good rifles and look good as well.When transpired later on in DDI’s history, like their own 100% USA built ones; that had lots of issues, and the owner closing down the company, the way he did. Was Shitty. But Shit happens. But if the product is good and reliable, and you like it...who cares.

(Left) DDI Hammer Forged receiver. Bulgarian Parts. Green mountain CL barrel, Polish wood furniture.
(Right) DDI 4140 milled received. Bulgarian parts. Bakelite furniture model. GM CL barrel.

Love these 2 rifles.

I found out my 74 had a messed up trunnion and the barrel they used was a one-off (as far as I can tell right now). The only parts I'd worry about are those two. If you're going to keep it I'd try to snag a CHF barrel and shoot it till it dies.

Seems your more worried about the fashion statement your brand if rifle makes over if it works well.

Nothing wrong with the gun. You liked it when you bought it so why not know?
If it was made well then it's still made well now.
Run it until it until you die or the ammo bill exceeds your income.

I had one. Shot the shit out of it (roughly 1.5k rounds) and sold it for $30 less than I gave for it. My only complaint was that I didn’t like the underfolding stock. It ran like a raped ape and was accurate throughout the time I owned it. Most of DDI’s kit built guns have been fine. My experience with them was good for both rifles I’ve owned of theirs. One of which I still have and shoot regularly.

I think I have been reading too much negativity.
Thanks for bringing me back to reality.
