I am tossing up the idea of purchasing a OD green collapsible stock from Vltor. I have seen the classic OD green stock and I have seen some gay lime green stock. WTF, if I order the OD green and get the gay green, I'm gonna be pissed.

The darker color is their newer color green. Vltor stated that they had a color change a while back. You are more than likely going to get the darker green.

They havent updated their photo. Their tan isnt that light either.

That is an old picture. The color change was months ago to maybe even beginning of last year. If you want to order one just ask one of the dealers as I am sure they will remember the lighter color versus the darker one. And by the way, its not lime green in person.

+1 on that. They now have what they call flat dark earth. The older tan color was meant to be more of a match for the KAC tan panels, from what I was told.

Vltor no longer makes "OD Green" their stocks are now "Foliage Green". It's the same green used in the new Army's digital uniform.

The Foliage Green is more of a gray green or a sage green, close in color to a nomex flight suit. I think it blends into most enviornments better than the old OD green.

Tango Down is also making their gear in Foliage Green.


I'm using Vltor's and Tango Down's Foliage Green on a new project, which will be done tomarrow

That pic was taken by Military Moron back in 2004, it shows the old OD green. I believe that Vltor and Tango Down's OD green have not changed since both companies started offering gear in OD green.

The new color is a gray green.

No. I have the older OD green and it is lighter than my Etrgo grip and Magpul XT rail panel OD green. That's what is in the pic, the older OD.

I just got a Vltor like a month ago and it was almost a smoke green, like USMC03 said, as opposed to OD.

I specified the old OD when I ordered mine from Grant and he had them in stock.

Just my opinion but I like this one a lot better than the lighter green
