I have not had a cdl model but have seen them. I owned a adl in the 70's it was the cheaper brand of the models. The bdl was the next in line with cheek piece and fore end was tiped with "rosewood" I think. I had it in a 30-06. That was the gun I wish I still had. Sweet shooting. Loaded 168gr boat tail hollowpoints for it. Can't remember the powder. I believe the cdl is the higher grade model. I prefer by looks the bdl. The cdl that I have seen has the flutted barrel stainless and I think it comes in blued version also. I am looking by next deer season to have a 7mm bdl model.
