Color opinion
 
So I'm ordering an S6.5 (hopefully Monday) and I'm trying to figure out pump handle colors. I'm getting it gloss silver with red accents and a clear trigger, the red will be on parts of the feedneck, detents, bolt, ASA and grips. Should I get the pump handle clear red with a silver pump plate or clear with red pump plate?

I had an all red CCM at one point. I loved it but it was a lot of red. I would say red should be used sparingly as an accent colour. It is easy to over do the use of the colour red.

But it is your gun do what you like.

If you are basically getting the following color combo, a red pump handle would be way too much red imo.

Let me show you these two red and white guns
I wanted my red to be accented

They wanted their red to stand out more.

It's funny that you mention that gun since my brother owns it now. I'm really stuck in the middle, at first I was thinking red pump handle but after seeing a J12 with a clear pump handle I'm torn.

id say clear because im not sure how well the acrylic red color matches. is it close?

I kind of like the clear handle with red plate.

But I will say you can't have to much red, my S6 below will agree.

What? No, blue ;). I think the first picture that noclue posted looks better for me personally; I don't know if i like clear handles. If i have to choose it would be clear with red pump plate as it would go with the flow of the accents.

Or a red pump handle. This is my dust silver S6, but think it would look about the same was a polished silver one. The grips are the clear acrylic ones that I dyed red, cant tell in the picture but they are translucent.
