I'm building a AR for my son and he changes direction on me. Doesn't want a all black rifle but wants a traditional M4 style stock.

On Tango downs website it only lists 3 colors one is FDE. Yet I have seen different variations from site venders here.

Dennys lists a dessert tan and FDE

Area51 lists Tan and FDE but their tan looks way too lite in color.

Here is the stock in question with and without Flash

Thanks everyone

Flat Dark Earth should look great.

Just ordered a FDE one from Denny's. Hopefully it will match ok. I got a tan one from AIM coming also but I think its the older desert tan. Guess I will sell the one that doesn't match.

For a M4 style stock it locks up real tight. More so then the commercial stock that came on my factory RRA. Bravo company is gonna make me go to the poor house.

So the FDE battle grip comes in and it seems its darker then most of the ones I have seen pics on here of.

I just added FDE furniture to one of mine. Started with a Vltor Emd stock in FDE, then Magpul XTM panels in FDE but when my VFG came in today ir was more of a tan than FDE but still doesn't look too bad. I figure after it gets dirty it will blend in more. Each maker seems to have some slight differences in what they call FDE, Magpul and Vltor'c colors are right on.

TD used to make Tan parts. I have a tan battlegrip around here somewhere.

HEre is a pic of the tan.  Obviously, cant assume a match based on that, but it looks pretty close.  I think I am going to order one off BC to match my grip.
