Daniel Defense Releases New Cerakote Finish

BLACK CREEK, Ga. — Daniel Defense, manufacturer of the world’s finest firearms and accessories, has expanded its custom Cerakote collection to include the all-new “Rattlecan” finish. Rattlecan is the 4th custom firearm coating to be introduced by Daniel Defense and joins the ranks of its widely popular, Mil Spec +, Daniel Defense Tornado, and Daniel Defense Deep Woods color finishes.  

“We’re excited to finally release this finish to the public,” said Daniel Defense President/CEO Marty Daniel. “Rattlecan was originally created to serve as the exclusive finish for the 2017 Friends of NRA Gun of the Year, the DDM4V7. The positive response that we received from Friends of NRA led us to make the Cerakote finish a staple in our custom Cerakote line.”

Rattlecan is a multicolor finish which blends the company’s proprietary “Mil-Spec +” and “Daniel Defense Tornado” Cerakote finishes. To create Rattlecan’s striking pattern, the finish is applied via stencil.  Due to the manual nature of the stencil application, each and every Daniel Defense firearm featuring Rattlecan is subtly different and unique to its owner. The all-new finish is currently offered on three Daniel Defense firearms: the DDM4V7, DDM4V7 Pro, and DDM4V7 LW.
