Can anyone confirm if it's burnt bronze as seen in daylight ?

That's burnt bronze. I've shot that exact rifle a few times. Titleist has since sold it and another friend now owns it. That's a pretty accurate likeness to how it looks under normal conditions.

 

ETA: it's a lot like Patriot Brown ... but with a non-tactical sheen to it. It looks cool. Not tactical at all as it can be bright in direct sunlight, but still cool.

Thanks for clarifying.

 

I had a little headache choosing between patriot brown, and burnt bronze... But I absolutely don't regret my final choice. Actually I think PB was the best possible choice, considering Cerakote pallete and one color paint scheme. I thought I love it right after painting and drying my receivers, but in fact I'm just starting to love it right now ;).

And still no scratch after last game and gearbox repairs.

 

Burnt bronze turns very goldish on most of pictures I've seen this far, so I had to ask.

Yup. Burnt Bronze has been getting very popular over the last year or so. I've never been much of a fan of it myself. I can appreciate it ... but it's not for me.

I dont think they have gained in popularity at all. They are plenty popular. The price point keeps ownership to a limited number of people..

 

Not sure if that comment had anything to do with my pic post. But if you go back a year or so, you'll realise I have posted pics of it before. When it was released, I had to have it. I am a huge fan of the monolithic upper. I had the longer version, but this one was love at first sight.

I'd agree with that - They've been selling steadily since they were released, and a lot of places are out of stock of them now. I've only seen a couple at games I've been too, which is nice, but there's definitely a fair few out there.

 

I sold my AEG a fair while ago, which I bought the day it was released - I still miss it now. I'm currently in the process of saving for the Bomber WOC, which I'm looking forward too. The MRP is my personal favourite AR-15, it's just a tad annoying that the GBBR version costs $900...

Anyone knows if it's possible to put steel outer barrel, Element/Madbull/G&P/whatever into MRP ?

Its outer barrel mount seems to be a little different, specially mounting of fake gas tube end.

Doesn't MRP(GBBR at least) comes with their own design of outer barrel? The barrel fastening mechanism is different...

 

Yes, it is different. The end of the barrel is threaded and screws into a socket. The socket is then held in the receiver using two large mounting screws.

Unfortunately there's a difference between wanting and being able to afford it.

The same about AEG ?

I love the look of the MOE solid stock, I just know the LOP would be far too long for me and my small arms. Annoying.

 

Didn't expect to see one on an AEG though, nice.

Unfortunately so - The MRP outer barrel on the AEG fits differently into the receiver due to the one piece design. You could probably get one machined as it's not a hugely complicated design, but I can't imagine it being cheap. Here's a review I did way back when with some pictures 'n such:

*edit* Since writing that review I've actually learned I was entirely wrong and G&P have done the DI MRP, and they haven't replicated the piston system. I just got excited and thought they had, because I didn't know better.

If it makes you feel any better, I have to go out of my way to find longer stocks for some of my rifles. It's not that long though, pretty sure it's the same lop as an acs in the first position.

Any chance you could do a comparison against any other collapsible stocks you've got there to find out? That I would like to see.
