What type of finish was put on the XM177E2 moderator and grenade launcher mounting ring?

My Colt one is very dark grey, almost black, parkerized. I have a S&H one that is a good bit lighter grey.

I would assume the finish on every other M16 at the time,sandstrom 9 grey finish.

Was it like the parkerizing on an AR barrel or darker?

very close, if not the same color. I will try to get the upper out of my safe this weekend and snap ssome pics. Remember though, that my parts are rather current production pieces. I have no direct experience with older XM177 parts.
