Manufacturing does not produce "flawless" color or finish. Machined finish components will naturally show some tooling marks from the manufacturing process. Due to the chemical process that takes place during anodizing and coating applications, the finish on products can vary from one to the next, even if it is the same batch. We strive to create as tight of a range as possible, and match parts to the best of our ability, but be aware that there may be slight variation between parts ordered. Due to the many variations in monitors and browsers, actual colors and metal finishes may vary on different monitors. We do our very best to make sure our product photos are as close to the exact product as possible, but we cannot guarantee that the color or finish you see accurately portrays the true color or finish of the product. Remember, all listed variations are normal, and do not affect the performance of the part in any way.
