If you have the Coyote Brown or Flat Dark Earth stocks, what furniture (rail covers, grips etc.) matches your stock the best? Tango Down, ERGO or MagPul? I want to go with a B5 in FDE and a TD BG-17 in FDE, but not sure of the color match. I know it's trivial, but I'm anal like that.

Coyote brown version is nothing close to Tangodown FDE or Magpul FDE. The closest match would be the FDE with tangodown in my opinion. I have a Tangdown vertical grip on one of my rifles that is pretty darn close to the FDE SOPMOD I have.

I have all mentioned brands covered in this pic. It's an FDE SOPMOD, perfect match to Magpul, Ergo (rail ladders) and TD

Does anybody have a side by side comparison picture of the Coyote Brown B5 SOPMOD vs. LMT Tan SOPMOD vs. KAC Taupe Rail Panels?

they all should be very close.
the FDE used on LMT/KAC SOPMOD is actually a CB.
I have a KAC taupe pistol grip and I've ordered a Coyote Brown B5 to match.

btw I've read that KAC modified their Taupe color at some point making it a bit lighter for the M-1110 contract.. not as light as FDE but less brow than CB.
if it's true there are 2 different Taupe colors out there..

ETA:
finally got my CB Sopmod
the color is very very close to the KAC Taupe grip. a little bit darker but close enough for me.

This is true. And pretty cool for people who are looking for a KAC panel that is closer in color to FDE by other manufacturers.

My FDE B5 matches my TD FDE BG16 almost perfectly.
