Call me old fashioned, but gray looks much better. Is just like the blondes, red heads or Ford vs. Chevy type thing.

I think gray looks good as well, but it doesn't match the AR's it's going on. Bradd

Just because the thing isnt black doesnt mean it doesnt match. The color may not match, but the combo matches wonderful IMHO! [img]http://www.imagestation.com/picture/sraid19/p1c7392f1a05bee211263c385c8e81ebe/fdc101fd.jpg[/img]

If you look around you will notice that a lote of products are done on grey, espec. a lot that are used by spec ops. Why, grey is much more dificult to see than black and gives an enemy a harder time to spot the weapon. Black sticks out like a soure thumb. A lot of war time Colt M16A1 weapons were made and thjey are more grey than black for very good reason, and that is what the mil-spec actualy calls for. Matching color is not good for camo effect, and black black is a commercial thing not military. The companies that go to the extra trouble to give the grey finish are doing our guys a favor. Ever notice the Trijicon military optic"s? Good Shootin, Jack
