At a couple of places on the net I have seen what looked like anodized red handguards for the AR15. Can anyone point me to some dealers who carry these? I'm interested in both cylindrical ones as well as ones which a vertical grip could be mounted to.

Red? Never seen 'em. Green or black are my colors.

You can change the color or even put on a camo pattern using gun kote or duracoat. Some people even spray paint it with Krylon (arguably stupid).

you can get the regular handguards in red but I'm not so sure about a railed one, I would imagine you would have to duracoat it red.

JP rifles is probably what you are thinking about.

Why? There's a whole thread in Refinishing on rattlecan jobs. Some are very nice, especially if you don't want something forever permenant.

It has been my experience that Krylon does not hold up even a little while on AR furniture; oils and solvents degrade it very quickly.

It's spray paint. If it starts not looking "pretty" just hit it again. But then, it's a rifle not a coffee table. SHOOT IT!
