I just purchased a surplus M16a1 upper and would like to get an A2 lower that matches the color of the upper. The upper is a Colt (gray) and I've only seen black A2 lowers. I know the A2 lower isn't "correct" but I'm trying to keep the cost down. Anyone know of any lowers that are gray rather than black. Thanks.

Get an NDS A1 lower, they are pretty cheap.

Essential Arms is the cheapest you'll find that's offered in grey. Don't know how well it will match your upper though. As mentioned NoDak Spud offers the color and the correct look for your upper. It may be more than you want to spend, but you'll thank yourself later.

$80 for Essential Arms; $160 for NoDakSpud. Pay your money and take your choice.
I have some EA small parts (trigger guard/charging handle, etc.); they are nicely done. Spend the extra $80 on the NoDak lower tho'. Do it once; do it right.

NDS is the only company offering colt grey anodized lowers. The EA lowers are a great deal for the money, but their grey color is not a close match for an original-finish upper.


You can always go the dura-coat or norells route and refinish an A2 lower yourself if you want to save $$$.
