No, but here are some shoes you can wear that will definitely pull the whole ensemble together!

JK - I just find it funny when people concern themselves with shades of black on an AR. :D

Are those shoes from ROSS? Yšk? :) . Yes, you might be right. However, I am super anal about it, and I do not wish to get any more sleepless nights because of it :online2long:

:D Yeah, I hear ya! ...I'm sure someone will be able to help you out with some *actual* information soon.

Also, I'm not exactly sure what you mean. Wouldn't a Spikes upper just be anodized? They don't normally Duracoat them from the factory, do they? Or do you want to know if someone has tried matching the Spikes anodizing with a Duracoat color?

If you are gonna DuraCoat why not hit the whole rifle? Then it will be a 100% match.

Thus, the upper already has beautiful & colorful text on it, that I do not wish to ruin :smartass:

i think you can get away with just asking for the flat black or ultra flat. depends on how hood you want to be.

man, if Spikes isnt matching them from the factory, maybe its a sign....

JK.

Since you truly sound extremely anal, nothing will match correctly unless you Duracoat BOTH upper and lower.

So pick any black Duracoat color ID that YOU like, and you'll be happy with your choice and your upper and lower will match perfectly.

Funny, my newest Spikes lower is the one with the weird finish. I just don't give a crap.
