New Daniel Defense Tornado Finish

Black Creek, GA- April 24, 2014- Daniel Defense, engineering and manufacturing the world’s finest weapons systems, precision rail systems and accessories, today announced a new finish intended for select rifle versions.  Daniel Defense Tornado™, a shade of gray, will be launched at the 2014 NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits in Indianapolis, Indiana, April 25-27.

The Cerakote finish is the second new color option Daniel Defense has launched this calendar year.  Mil Spec +, a flat dark earth variation, was first unveiled at SHOT Show in Las Vegas, Nevada, in January.  “When you look for a new car, you have substantially more color options than just black,” noted Jordan Hunter, Daniel Defense Director of Marketing.  “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.”

Consumers can expect to see this new eye-catching option at firearms dealers and online beginning this July.  Initially, Daniel Defense will offer the DDM4v5 and the V9 LW in the new finish, with additional models to be announced before the end of summer.  “We have kept this under wraps for quite some time and are excited to share this new signature color with our customers and fans,” says Hunter.  Retail price for the first two Daniel Defense Tornado™ rifles will be $1819, and will include the new Daniel Defense Buttstock and Pistol Grip, also new to the DD line of products for 2014.

Overview DDM4v9 LW

The DDM4v9 Lightweight, finished with Daniel Defense Tornado™ Cerakote, is designed to satisfy the needs of modern shooters, not only in popular shooting sports, but also for tactical and defensive applications. The long,15” DDM4 quad rail over a 16” cold hammer forged Lightweight profile barrel gives the operator the option to have the support hand extended out close to the muzzle allowing them to drive the gun more precisely, and preventing over-travel when transitioning between multiple targets. This, combined with our mid-length gas system which is known to have a smoother recoil impulse, allows for quick, but precise rapid fire. This rifle also comes with the newly designed, rugged and comfortable Daniel Defense Buttstock and Pistol Grip.
