Yup, Essential Arms receiver. I have a bunch of them. Excellent fit and machine work. What they advertise as "black" is more of a colt grey. For $3 more they will duracoat them a true black. $10 will get you a green anodized finish. Do a seach for essential arms on this site. I started a thread with pics.

thanks Solid

so the "black" would be closest to a late 80's early 90's colt sporter grey?
and their "grey" would be more of a vietnam era "grey"....if i read you correctly....

I believe you understood me correctly but let me repeat myself one more time to be sure. All of the essential arms receivers come with a standard "black" finish. I say "black" because its a very flat grey color extremely similar to the vietnam/SP1 colts. For an additonal $3, they will duracoat your receiver either black or grey. I have no idea what the grey duracoat looks like but the black duracoat is pretty much the same color of modern uppers.
