Need help picking a color for barreled action. I picked up a brown with black spider wed stock. Thinking of graphite black or a 80/20 mix of tungsten and graphite black since I have the sig tango scope in tungsten sitting on top of it.

Match the scope.

Cerakote will send you sample plates. I always liked matching one of the colors within the stock color, for the barreled action .

Haven't seen it in person yet but you might look at cerakote elite smoke. I'm having a sample made up of a couple colors now

If you're looking at matching a 'blued' gun, choose midnight blue. But as Fireman stated, call/email cerakote and get some samples.

I like that midnight bronze a lot but it would clash with the glass bad. I want one of my AR's to be done in midnight bronze. Gonna look into elite smoke, and ask for samples. Thanks for the suggestions fellas.

I really dig the different shades of grey.
Fyi, I'm a very "boring" person with little to no fashion sense. So I like the grey because it's not too far crazy on a gun to me but it's not black.
I know I know I'm a boring person.

I went with Elite Smoke on my APR 7-08. My dad got the dark tungsten on his APR 6.5 CM, which I believe is the 80/20 tungsten/graphite black. Both look great.

That dark tungsten is nice. Every time I've seen it I think how good and versatile of color it is. The elite line of cerakote features looks impressive.

I would go a different scope than rolling the dice trying to hit a gray scope.

I was thinking of the wrong scope. He has the vortex razor that is a dark bronze kinda color.
