The Color Purple

Do some people really like the color Purple on their AR? It really looks weird to me.

One of our local gun dealers, Emerald Valley Armory in Creswell ( just 6 miles south of Eugene ), is featuring two tone AR's that are green and purple.

But is this anyone's cup of tea? Here is a pic of two of these AR's on display at the store.

This is a great store that does offer a wide variety of AR's and accessories for them, and will even custom build AR's for clients. But is this a new trend in AR's, perhaps? The color purple??

I just don't understand the appeal, myself. I guess I am just too much of a traditionalist.

Now if they would do something with Deadpool graphics on it you've got my money!!! Especially if it from the movie, not comic book

Actually, that shop does build custom AR's for customers. They built this AR for a US Coast Guard sailor who recently retired, to commemorate his retirement. So they could customize an AR to your specifications.

That's what happens if you cut off the circulation!

Gets the attention of new shooters, or those with non-traditional tastes. I bet a good number of ladies would like it as well, and the gun industry is trying to attract new customers from a broader base of potential customers. Kind of like the whole pink gun thing - or gun makers who do blue, teal, green, etc frames. It's just different - not everything has to be black, brown, or polished silver.

Personally, I'm not big on purple on my guns, but I know a few folks that would rock a purple AR for sure - and know at least one lady who carries a purple framed Ruger as a carry gun.

I had a KTM 300exc that had purple and umm salmon graphics. And it still bothers me to this day never ever again. Only if it's to get the girls excited about ARs. Just seems wrong.
