                      The hard anodize color depends on the alloy. 2024 is a darker grey, 6061 is kinda gunmetal with a bit of olive in person. They likely look a little different in person as well since it's a reflective surface.

                      • I was just giving Tower (Mike?) crap, since he said gunmetal, but the pics made them look green instead hahaha

                        I don't care what color they are as long as they are LONG AND HARD.

                        Wait, what?!

                            It's my understanding that they get darker the longer they marinate.

                            • That is sorta true- the color changes slightly with each different alloy, but it also starts as basically clear and gets darker as the anodizing gets thicker. (it could marinade longer or it could be run with higher current to get faster results.. but much of that process is specified by the type of coating. there are calculations for voltage and current based on bath temp, part area, chemical composition, etc etc etc).

                              but the jist of it is they do get darker the thicker the coating is. the shade of green/gray/brown/black is based on the type of aluminum for hard anodizing.

                              THEN there are the pigments that can be added to it and you can dye it any color you want... but that's not a MIL-spec hard anodize if done that way.

                              edit.. just some reading I dug up from Google.... http://www.techplate.com/hard_anodize.htm

                                Good chit, thanks.

                                But where did you get that Class 2 isn't MIL-spec?
