Is the ACR receiver anodized or painted, Can't really tell when I look inside mine looks like raw aluminum and there is a big long turd of what looks to be dried paint running down the inside. which led me to believe it was painted. I'm thinking about sending it out for a Magpul FDE cerakote job.

It looks like they did a clear anodize and then painted over it. On mine (coyote) you can see inside the upper where it wasn't sprayed too. When I did the NFA engraving it chipped and fussed like paint.

I don't know what the black ones have? The ACR prototypes were in the traditional Bushmaster purple anodized finish but the new ones look like a coating to me as well.

I received my black receiver and though I haven't seen it yet, I believe the black is "charring" from being forged in the pits of Hades.

Obviously that's just a guess though.

Hmmmm, that might explain the dings on the front of my ejection port that looks its down to bare aluminum. Nothing real bad, but they are there.

Possibly. I had to trade to get this one. Hopefully BMI starts selling parts soon so when I get back, I can assemble my Death Machine.
