OD Green or Tan?

I cant decide if I want to guncoat my new build OD Green or Tan. What do you guys think?

Its a Armalite lower, cmmg A3 upper, A2 stock, 20" cmmg heavy chrome lined barrel. Everything but the barrel will be guncoated.

Also should I guncoat the scope? idk about this what you think?

I'd say OD unless you plan to be in the desert. I'd probably leave the scope alone -just my 2 cents.

Green because my current build is FDE.

I love OD but would be tempted to do a build and 'paint' it tan as a tribute to our folks in the sandbox.

I have an OD XD and an OD ar-15 SBR. I also recently hit my .223 AK47 furniture with a color that's about 1/2 way between OD and Foliage Green.

Given the choice of "Baby Poop" vs. "Dirt", I would go with basic black.

I'd like to see the two tone TAN. I seriously thought about using the Moly on my M4 in Tan. I decided to keep it black and do Tan the next go around, rather it be an AK, M4, FAL, or a SCAR / MASADA if that ever happens

It doesn't matter what color your EBR is as long as it's still EVIL!
