How come all the manufacturers only make black AR15s now instead of the grey ones?  I personally like gray better.  What do yall pref?

You mean you guys really don't like the black finishes out there?!?!  I think they look better than the older grey finished ones.


And besides....if they were still grey we couldn't call them the "BLACK rifles".........[:D]

That is not the point.  Why did they stop making that color?  Do more people like black better?

I always thought a nice cornflower blue would be rather striking...

I agree with you.  My brother has a beautiful gray preban Colt. Wish mine was that color.  I guess it is so people wouldn't be banned from the Black Rifle Convention. [;)]

i like the grey too. I was going to order a Bushmaster flat top upper, but after the last gun show i noticed that all the new ones were black.

My guess is that the black finish is easier to touch up and match instead of varying shades of grey.

It would suck to buy a brand new upper and then have to ship it off someplace to have it refinished. I HATE sending stuff off.


lib who thinks grey is good [:)]
