Default COLORED AR-15 accessories?????

I am building a rifle for my wife to shoot.
COLORED AR-15 accessories????? I am looking to put together an AR that is every color EXCEPT black. Red, blue green, pink, orange or ANY other color.
Looking for stock, forend, grip etc.
Yes, I know I can use a can of spray paint but I would rather buy factory color parts.
I want the rifle to be as many colors as possible and colors of different parts do not need to match.
Any ideas of stores to buy from???

Magpul introduced pink in their MOE line. You could end up with something like this:

I don't think we're supposed to call it Colored any more.

IF you want off the shelf your only options are Black, FDE, OD, Foliage green, Hot or light pink (Tapco and Magpul), zombie green, and Magpul's new grey. Your best bet if you are looking for something different would be to buy some black Magpul MOE gear and have it sandblasted and Cerakoted any color your wife wants. Might cost a bit more, but it will be unique and durable.

LOL, good answer. It gets so tiring seeing people complain about other folks using colors on firearms that aren't "tacticool" enough. Hell, the gun I like shooting the most out of my collection is blue(and not some spec ops navy seal operator dark blue either).

I got my wife a "Colored" rifle too. I didn't want to do pink since it is grossly overdone and too predictable. I opted to have a custom Duracoat done on the Magpul furniture (stock, buffer tube, grip, mags, foregrip [did rear sight too just for looks]).



I sent the part to GOE Gunworks (www.goegunworks.com) and did a 4-color multi-cam purple. Took about two weeks and it looks great! Because it's Duracoat, I'm not worried about scratching or paint rubbing off. It was around $225, but I can tell you that all of my wife's friends are jealous. Even the guy's wife at GOE wanted it done on her rifle as well.

CLICK ON THE PICTURE BELOW. Good luck on getting this project done!

"Also, Dude, Colored is not the preferred nomenclature. Magpul-American, please.

My SA just wants to fit in. She would probably sock me if I got her a pink gun. I don't understand why anyone even wants an Ar that isn't bone stock. They made it right the first time. Her brother even killed some Talibans with one like mine after they shot an RPG at his house for the night. Only thing I would add is an ACOG.
