    ... have had too many last minutes changes on what colour to anodise my 3rd spare LG110 FT Steyr, which has been in bits since last year...

    To give you a colour of the idea, see the pic. ...its going to be in...... GUN METAL :D (or Charcoal Grey to others)

    Searching for ' Gun Metal Anodise' , I was surprise to see Leupold does a scope in gun metal as well..:D

    Perhaps the Falcon T50 should also come in Silver or Gun Metal anodise to reflect off some POI heat issues ??? :D - has anyone suggested that to them rather than always Matt Black :confused:

    Matt black is not a bad colour for a scope...

    It may 'attract' heat but it also gets rid of it efficiently too.

    It's why some high end heat sinks are anodised black.

    but anyway the steyr should look awesome :)

    That should look very nice indeed. What about the barrel and cylinder, silver?

    Likewise with aircooled (and a lot of liquid cooled) motorbike engines where you have to get rid of a LOT of heat.
