Gray or Black?

I'm building an 11" 6.5 Grendel SBR. Aero M4E1 Enhanced upper, MLOK handguard, Engage billet lower, Geisselle SSA-E, topped with a Burris XTR II 1.5x-8x DFP scope. It is my ultimate room clearing sniper rifle.

That said, I am buying some Magpul stuff for it because I am a Magpul whore:
1. MBUS rear sight
2. STR stock
3. MOE+ pistol grip
4. Rail covers

I need to choose a color. Stealth gray or black? No FDE or OD because those are for wannabees, not real tactical urban mall response personnel like myself. Convince me.

Black...it's an AR. I'm a stick in the mud and i think firearms are functional not fashionable.

Get off my lawn..

Grey is starting to grow on me, as an urban camo configuration.

If you left it on the sidewalk no one would even SEE it.

You need to test this. Which finish shows the fingerprints worse when you've been handling Olive Garden bread sticks?

Polka dot. Fuschia base. Hot pink dots. Little ones not big ones. Asymmetric pattern.

Done

Grey would match my minotaur penis necklace the bestest.

Gray blends in better than black in most environments. And it's easier to spray paint over.

Of course, it won't truly be an Evil Black Rifle unless it's black.

I voted stealth grey as it will blend in with Gefilte fish.
