Are all the grays the same tone? Looks off in the photo.
Dan B on Aug 22, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The brace is a shade darker gray. It is a different material and from a different supplier than the other plastic parts, so not an exact match. It shouldn't bother you, unless you're trying to make a fashion statement! :-)

Great deal for a baseline pistol
Well built upper and lpk for a base level pistol. Good bcg.

The hand guard is not to my liking - too flexible, and fatter than the Colt version - but swapping it out along with other parts is easy enough.

Mine shipped with a bent (!) charging handle.

PSA has the Daily Deals, the shipping, and the quality!
Get yours TODAY! This was my first ever build. Super easy! It took longer to find the tools than it did to put it together. All of the parts came packaged perfectly for a first time builder. The Daily Deal included free shipping and I got it in two days. Now, my wife wants one too.
