So does this mean that tan is officially dead?

We haven't produced tan parts in over 2 years. The coyote Brown out sold the Desert Tan in it's first 6 months of production, compared to the 3 years the Desert Tan was available. We donated all our remaining Desert Tan furniture in stock to various military units from from 2004-2005.

If a distributor wants more desert tan furniture, we can make it, but they will need to order 500 pieces.



OK- thanks. I was just asking for curiosity's sake. That, and I have some tan furniture. Will it now be "rare and collectible?"

What is the difference between Coyote Brown and tan? Is that the new tactical name for tan?

Excellent, I have three rifles with your furniture that still have black grips because I hate the Ergo.

Are you planning on producing any items in the new SOCOM Ranger Green?

Like VLTOR and TangoDown are switching over to?

ARE YOU ON DRUGS? That is the nicest grip I've ever held. I have a hogue too, but MUCH prefer the Ergo. Just kidding ya. Do you not like the feel/texture or is the size?

The handguard on the left and the buttstock on the right are from CavArms and they are "coyote brown".

The TangoDown Battle grip next to the Cav handguard is "Flat Dark Earth".

They are exactly the same color.

The other stocks in the pic are the older "tan", which has been discontinued by both TangoDown and VLTOR in favor of Flat Dark Earth, which is a SOCOM milspec color. In the next pic below we have three companies' products; all colors match: TangoDown and VLTOR in the new "Flat Dark Earth" and CavArms "coyote brown".





The newest SOCOM color is Ranger Green, and both VLTOR and TangoDown are switching to this color. The old green color they used before (based on the KAC green used on rail covers) is being discontinued in favor of the milspec Ranger Green.



The pistol grip on this rifle is the new Ranger Green, and the other stocks are the older green which is on the way out.

I hope CavArms follows suite and switches to Ranger Green.
