If so, how does the finish of the two parts match up? Is it close in color and tone? FYI - I do realize that finish will vary a little bit batch to batch.

Is there reason to go with another A2 upper as opposed to the DPMS?

I don't know if the anodizing would match as any manufacturer's anodizing can variations in color.

Rifles assembled in the same factory on the same day will have varying shades.

Thank you for the photo. It appears that there is a pretty substantial difference in tone/color between the upper no lower. The DPMS spec page mentioned something about teflon coating. That made me wonder.

Does anyone know of an A2 upper receiver Where the finish matches relatively closely to the BCP group buy lower? I'm not looking for perfection but would like to get it Close..

Buy some norells moly resin and spray it at home. Upper and lower will match perfectly and the coating is tough as nails.

My bushmaster used to be slightly purple, and now its jet black and i painted it 8 years ago.

Really solid product.

I was hoping to avoid painting but will probably wind up doing that. Thanks for the info.
