Anyone know if DD has ever produced Middy Omega rails in Flat Dark Earth?

I've seen some pics online that would suggest so, but I don't see it offered anywhere.

Actually really bummed that I can't find something like that - I would kill to have that color on a DD Middy quad rail.

Anyone else feel the same? Or just me?

im not sure. i know DSG arms has the rifle in FDE and i also know that DD discontinued the FDE omega 7.0 so the 9.0 may have also been discontinued

Honestly I like the MI rail over the DD omega... the MI has a slimmer profile, it comes in the FDE coloration, and it is lighter than the DD omega. I have owned both and there really isn't a noticeable difference so if you like the DD name then go for it 4sure but I think the MI GenII Drop-In serves you just as well if not better for the $$$. I am probably going to be getting on me for this but that is just what my experience kinda led me to believe.


PS Daniel Defense is awesome the MI just worked better for me

According to published specs from both manufacturers, the DD rail is a lot slimmer than the MI (1.9" vs 2.3") and the MI Rail is only 0.1 oz. lighter (7.5 oz. vs. 7.6 oz.)

No, I don't feel that way. I just cover up the rails with panels so I can make them any color I want. Besides, if FDE ever falls from favor, I'm can change it.

Yep they made 'em. In what they called SOCOM Dark Earth I believe. Here's mine. I'm pretty sure they are discontinued.

I went with the Mk18 RIS II for that reason. It's not a drop-in, but it's a 9" (plus) and it's SOCOM Dark Earth.
