Firearm manufacturers and finish applicators are always experimenting with new ways to create stronger finishes. The coordination of guns and technology between Daniel Defense and Cerakote has recently been able to produce just that. Daniel Defense’s new Cerakote Elite finish is being touted as not only stronger, but more impervious to scratches and abrasions.
This new coating will also be coming at consumers in a new color that Daniel Defense is calling “Deep Woods.” This new Deep Woods color is a green, Earth-toned shade that is more neutral or flat in appearance than traditional Olive Drab Green (OD Green).
The new Cerakote Elite Deep Woods will be initally available on 5 of Daniel Defense’s rifle models:
- DD5V1 Keymod
- DD5V1 M-LOK
Marty Daniel, the President and CEO of Daniel Defense was quoted as saying this in regards to their new finish and color offering for Daniel Defense rifles:
We are excited to be working with Cerakote to release Daniel Defense Deep Woods on several of our rifle models. We debuted the Deep Woods finish on our DDM4A1 rifle at the 2017 NRA Show in Atlanta, Georgia, this past spring. The response was very positive to not only the Deep Woods color but also to the look and feel of the Cerakote finish.
This is something that you should see immediately available through Daniel Defense supporting dealers. The full press release for the new Cerakote Elite finish in Deep Woods can be read below.
