Thanks for your order! All of our ranger green products ship with the military specification hardware color, which is tan (not as dark as coyote). When I first saw tan on ranger, I was skeptical. Then I did a bunch of color comparisons with other hardware colors and decided that (short of hardware being made in ranger green), tan really is the best color to go with ranger green. At least in this case, the military spec seems to have gotten it right. Now I'm to the point where I really like the look of tan hardware on ranger green.
