    I am getting the itch to build another AR. Looking for companies that make Desert Tan/FDE components--the upper, lowers, etc. Any recommendations on who to stay with/stay away from? Thanks!

    I think painting is gonna be the easier direction.

    Magpul and Tango Down make tons of FDE accessories, but for the upper & lower, easiest will be getting it Cerkoted or Duracoated.

    Krylon for on the cheap, or one of the other firearm coatings.

    All the major brands sell FDE as well as OD, Foliage Green.
    A few companies anodize in colors.

    Rguns has upper and lowers that are FDE but IRCC they really don't match up to the aftermarket version of FDE. Best bet would be to build your gun then send it out to be finished or finish it yourself.
