    Hey guys, got my 2nd quad rail today and it looks more tan than black. Packaging says black but...... is there this bit a variance in colors on these things? Bottom is the new one btw. It’s not tan looking closer, it’s more gray.

    Of course it says black. My best bet is probably gonna be to blast it and use their spray / bake black stuff. Of course I’ve been debating painting one anyway so who knows?

    I’m fairly certain they used to have FDE ones. That tan looking one is what the FDE look like. The RAL8000 were way more baby poo than the FDE. I would imagine one got mislabeled either by Brownells or by a third party when Brownells acquired them.

    Looks just like the Ral8000 A5 quad rail I used to own 2 years ago.

    I have the same rail. Got it from GGW. Looks just like yours, very dark. Ordered mine as a RAL8K rail though. Added link if you want to see it. https://beta.photobucket.com/u/rapur...0-4fdc376a6fbb

    Yea that looks about the same. I guess I’ll be blasting it. I was wondering if maybe there was a batch out there

    Want to trade the RAL handguard for a black one?
