I don't think this has been done.

I though it would be nice to have a thread dedicated to currently available anodized parts in colors other than black. Please post parts that are for sale that are in anodized earth colors other than black and I will update. I will probably take a picture of some parts I have next to a Magpul FDE part for color comparison.

The receiver extensions that I received threading kinda sucked and inside of tube looked god awful, very rough with ridges all the way down

Anyone have experience with R Guns receivers, carry handles or CH?

Very cool.

Any sources for Tan receiver extensions outside of G and Rguns that are 7075?

Good to know. I'm not vouching for the quality of any of the parts, just listing that they are anodized in a color that isn't black.

I went to their store and looked at them in person. There is a bit of variance in color. I am thinking about getting detachable carry handles and 80% lowers.

I have a receiver set in sand. The lower was good to go. The front lug on the upper is a hair small causing a little wiggle when attached to numerous lowers. Nothing a little o-ring on the lug didn't fix immediately.

Some visual motivation to tanodize ALL the things!

I won't add the ACOGs since they are discounted but I'll add the Elcans.

Please continue posting about things that were once available though. I can always make a separate section for that later.

SLR Rifle Works will cerakote (I counted 82 colors available) any handguard, upper, or lower they offer for $42 extra.  Add the cerakote service to your shopping cart in equal quantity to items to be coated.  (I've ordered 2 handguards from them this way and they did a good job.)

The problem is finding many of the misc and small parts in colors other than black and FDE (and sometimes even that).  Things like Handstops, handguards, pins, end plates, magazine release, buffer tube, etc.

Timber Creek Outdoors has a number of items in multiple colors.

I think all of those are Cerakoted. We're only looking for items anodized in earth tones. They do have blue and red anodized but that doesn't help us much.

I had two tanodized uppers and a green anodized upper from Rguns.

Sadly, all three were much looser than I'd have liked on all my lowers. I sold them off.
