Ask a Question

  • Forgive me if this has been covered. What is the real difference between the SBR and Mil Spec? Is the Mil Spec just the additional cerakote on the weapon system ?

    Great question. The naming scheme Daniel Defense went with is very confusing. The rifles are exactly the same with the exception of the color. Daniel Defense calls the color: Milspec Brown.
