What is the difference between the stainless BDL and the stainless sps and the LSS? Just the stock?

    BDL used to mean nicer wood finish and a hinged floor plate. I have no idea if all BDL's still have the hinged bottom metal though.?

    They all have the hinged bottom metal. SPS has the black parkerized finish.

    To my knowledge,

    BDL does not refer to the stock but it stands for "Bottom Drop Load"
    LSS refers to both the stock and steel, LSS stands for "Laminated stainless steel"
    SPS refers to the stock only, it stands for "Special Purpose Synthetic"

    That's what I was thinking, seems if I am remembering correctly; BDL's used to have bottom metal/hinged floorplate, and ADL's were blind magazines with no bottom opening.?...............just going off memory, which isn't so good at times
