I acquired a tan L4 G70 set and when I pulled out the G24 I was surprised that it was darker colored than expected.

I was expecting one this color,...

...but got one that looks like this.

Both are apparently "tan", but obviously not the same shade of tan. The description for the NSN is "L4 SERIES G24 NVG MOUNT, W/LOW PROFILE BREAKAWAY BASE, COLOR TAN." I'm plenty fine with the darker color, just curious as I didn't realize they made two different tan colors for their G24s. Anyone know what's up with the different color "tans"?

it is cause the generation. if you see the first picture date it is 2009. first generations had that light colour. newer versions have gold colour.

i have had both and there are also differences in the piece which looks the vertical movement. oldgens are metal and newer plastic

Several years ago, I have received a "tan" L2G05 which appear in silver/titanium like color. It's so common that the finishing color of metal product has obvious different among batchs.
