I went with the black for two reasons.

1. I don't own any black rifle's (FDE SCAR/Silver SR-15.)
2. I'm a leftie.

I almost went with FDE since all of my guns EVER have always been black but...I couldn't do it in the end and just went with black.

I struggled with this for a while and made my "final" decision on one color or the other a few times but ultimately I have a FDE MK18 and FDE SCAR which were my last two rifles and to me the Tavor just looks "mean" in black.  hard to describe. 

Also I like to stay as true to the deployed rifle as possible and most governments use the black/grey or the OD.

Finally I always like a little black mixed in with my FDE whether it is the mag or grip or something else, the FDE Tavor was too brown for my taste as in brown all over, nothing really breaking that up.

This is all just my humble opinion of course.  FDE seems to be very popular on the rifle.

FDE for me. I have a few black guns, and they're kind of boring. If they ever come out with a OD Green one I'd probably pick one up.

I went with the black, although the FDE would have gone better with my Sig 220 combat. Oh well, I guess that's why someone invented paint.

Yea, struggled on this too. Ended up with an FDE once I saw a photo of the FDE Travor with a black magazine in it. I dunno if I'll be able to score any FDE mags and I have a ton of black. Once I saw how snazzy it looked I chose FDE.

Hi all Im new to bullpup forums. I will be pumped to have either color. There is a possibility we will not get the chance to own either. Before we all get to excited about color it is important that you write your state representatives and let them know your thoughts .

Wanted an IDF and an FDE.  I could only pick one so I went with the FDE for the color to have something in FDE.  If I end up not liking it, it will be easier to change the color like TVPressPass did.

FWIW, I think FDE, Patriot Brown, and OD Green guns all look pretty cool with black magazines.  Not that looks really bother me one way or the other once I'm shooting, but I think the black magazines will look just fine.

I struggled with this choice for a while. I really really wanted the FDE after seeing the pictures. I've never had a non-black gun and was open to the idea.

I have a buddy that had a FDE MSAR when they first came out. He didn't like it because it showed carbon buildup easier and was harder to clean smudges off of. Well the smudges would be the same just more easily hidden on black.

I finally chose black. I may regret that as soon as I lay eyes on a FDE one in person but really, I'll be happy with anything at this point.

I'm surprised they didn't offer OG (Green).

But I would get the FDE and sell the FS2000.

I chose FDE but it was one of the hardest decisions of my life.

FDE rifles are less deadly than black rifles.  I went with FDE since I just shoot paper.   Grin

Neither..  Once this little honey is home..   shes just gonna take a trip
to get hydrodipped in A-TACS

If your some sort of brain bug and good with graphics
maybe you could help a brother out and send me a pic
of just how sick this gun would look.

BLACK, FDE..  if DiFi gets her evil way
all our guns would be colored "transparent"
