Hey guys,

I'm planning to convert an older KAC SR25 into a clone KAC M110 SASS build (as much as I can). Some stuff I appreciate can't be changed, like the fact that the SASS upper has an integral brass deflector and the SR25 doesn't, different lower markings, etc. But I have managed to source most of the proper M110 SASS parts (stock, URX rail, etc), so I'm in the ballpark. I just need a few small parts, some gunsmith work, and their FDE-ish finish.

Anyone know who makes the Dark-Earth-ish color finish (Duracoat, Ceracote, KG cote, Alumahyde, etc?) that is applied to the SASS rifles, and what exact color it is? I thought the SASS receiver and rails were anodized at first, but I've been told that it is definitely painted/coated.

I'm also curious to learn what the issue sling is (TIS, Turner?), if there is one?

Any other advice on the M110 SWS, or general build advice, is greatly appreciated--this is my first .308 AR. Thanks in advance guys!

Yeah, it would be great if you could post a pic or two. How close is it to the issue SASS color?

The coat that KAC uses is like a Cerakote or KG. Its a ceramic type coat. After talking to one of the KAC guys at SHOT my understanding is it's not a normal "on the market" iteam. It is a nice finish though.

Is it? Im not suprised if it is. Im just going by what the guy at KAC was telling me. He was playing it off like it was some uber unobtainable finish.

and this surprises you?

the very limited experience/knowledge i have of KAC, it appears they would like for everyone to believe their products are made out of this super secret material called "unobtainum"

i promise, if KAC can get it...so can you!
