Daniel Defense Embraces the Tactical Gray Craze
Daniel Defense today unveiled its new Tornado gray finish intended for select rifle versions.
The Black Creek, Ga.-based gun maker is one of many firearms and tactical gear manufactures offering gray finishes with urban combat in mind. Tornado is the second new color option for its Cerakote finish Daniel Defense launched earlier this year.
“When you look for a new car, you have substantially more color options than just black,” Jordan Hunter, Daniel Defense Director of Marketing, said in a Jan. 24 press statement. “Customers want choices other than the mil-spec Type III hard coat anodizing, or matte black, and the Daniel Defense Tornado, we believe, will be well received by our customers.”
The new finish will be available this July on the DDM4v5 and the V9 LW models. Additional models will be announced before the end of summer, Daniel Defense officials say.
Both models include Daniel Defense’s new comfort buttstock and pistol grip that feature a glass-filled polymer with Soft Touch Overmolding. Both will retail for $1819.
