I'm not into fashion colors on my firearms, but if that's what makes someone happy, it shouldn't hurt my feelings. I don't modify defensive guns in any way shape or form, beyond possibly the addition of night sights. I currently own 4 AR15s. One that I purchased and three that I built. I've done all sorts of things to the ones that I built. If it doesn't go bang when I pull the trigger, oh well. I'll figure it out when I get home from the range. The one that I purchased is bone stock, other than the addition of a red dot sight and a light. Based on years of experience versus virtually months for me, I trust theirs much more than mine should the need arise.
