I own a Colt and a DPMS AR15. I bought a 2nd amendment series Stag stripped lower today from my local shop and when I got it home, I noticed it's a completely different color/texture. It's not a big deal, but when I build this next gun, I'd like to have a similar textured upper receiver.

Does anyone know of one that they can suggest that's fairly inexpensive?

I don't want to paint the lower as it has a laser engraving I kinda like.

Good luck with that. I've seen differences in the finish among parts from the same manufacturer. All I can tell you is not to buy anything without seeing it first or at least a getting something that says that you can return the upper. I'd imagine the best way to go about it would be to hit the gun shows and try to find one that matches.

I dont have a lot of experience with ARs. This is a weird finish though. They had 5 stripped lowers there and they all had this same look. Im not looking for an exact match, I know that's not going to happen. But this looks like a totally different process because it's a completely different finish than either of my other two guns.

Figure there have to be other manufacturers with something similar.

Thanks.

You might ask Stag if their uppers are a good cosmetic match to this lower...
