LBE makes a "brown" anodized buffer tube, it is almost identical in color to the G ddc tubes. Super nice quality, much nicer than any of the rguns tubes I've bought. I'll post some pics soon.

Edit: they also have a grey color that looks good too.

It has less of the red purplish hue that the G tubes can have but it's much closer to flat dark earth than most anodized parts will be. The rguns is on the right and it looks gold compared to the LBE.

Wonder why you can't find a tanodized upper receiver?

Seems like someone would sell them vs cerokote FDE.

I just need the upper as I plan on using a CLE or DD barrel over a geissele barrel.

Thanks. This has become a disease. I am making a trade to pick up one of the 1 of 1500 rare Colt LE6920s in FDE anodizing this weekend. Plan on Form 1ing it and throwing on the 10.5" barrel and DDC Federal MK4 rail off the upper I just purchased here on the EE. The fun part is going to be trying to find a tan EXPS 3-0.

You're preach'n the choir my friend. I hate to even look back at my spreadsheets for my builds. Ugh. So much coin...

None the less, the Colt FDE Anno lower will be pure badass. And a Federal DDC MK4 rail to boot? Sweet. I've settled into 10.5" as my favorites.. I can only "ball" with MK8's on mine, but hey.. still great rails!

Rock on brother, happy shooting.

I saw one of those tano 6920s cut down to 10.5” with a legit RISII MK18 FSP, tano EOtech and Surefire on it.

I was considering cutting the 6920 barrel down to 10.5" and using this cerakoted Centurion C4 cutout on it. I'm going to wait until I get the gun and see the coloration of the receivers before I make that call however.


Here's what it looked like on a 10.3 MK18-esque build.

Strike industries offers an anodized FDE RE and Timber Creek has one in an FDE, but it’s coated and not anodized.
Not the premium option but an option nonetheless.
I have the Geissele and it’s a nice one for sure.

Geissele had blems with an SBA3 for $100 for a while. If they're not gone I'd grab one and then sell the SBA3 for like $60.

Getting closer

Jhorne hooked me up with a DDC G upper.

Good match and more DDC than gold coloured.

As you see the comparison between the receiver and the G trigger guard.

Pictured below is my humble offering to the Tano crowd.

Pictured top left is a R-Guns (accidentally bought Commercial…)
Top right is a Backwoods Bronze, which is actually more hideous in real life.

Attached to the lower is an extension from Outdoor Tactical Suppliers, which matches the Aero Tano best of the three.

Other parts include Aero Tanodized M4E1 w/ 9” Atlas set, a DDC Geissele SCH, FDE BCM Mod-0, Aero LPK, MBT-2S, Toolcraft Nitride BCG, and a FDE cerakoted end plate by Timber Creek.
I have a 10” BA 300 barrel on the way, and this will get a Magpul FDE SL once the F1 is back.

The early ECOS models (TA01 and TA31) were tanodized and then a couple of RSR Group (IIRC) exclusives were tanodized. They aren't easy to find.

It’s an Aero Tanodized “blem”. It was a limited run and they’re tricky to find.

Doesn't bother me at all. The TiN stuff is typically on the golder side of things to begin with. Some carbon caked on it will dull it up as well.

Looks good!

Anyone have experience with this receiver set? I was thinking of doing a 50 shades of FDE for my 300blk pistol and was going to get my M4E1 builder set cerakoted in different shades (FDE, burnt bronze, and maybe coyote tan). The cost would be about the same as buying this set. I've been having a hard time finding any tanodized sets.

During my search for the above post ^^ I did find that Guntec offers a biller upper in bronze anodized. I know Guntec isn't top of the line and it is also only T6 6061 but it's close to being tanodized. Just throwing it out there.. https://guntecusa.com/product/ar-15-stripped-billet-upper-receiver-anodized-bronze/
