    Still looking for a pair of 1st Gen FMJ 5.56 Eye-Jackets....The ones that I thought were 5.56 are either a variation of the colour or the tone has changed due to sunlight(they were in a store so maybe exposure to light occurred on a regular basis): has anybody else noticed how the FMJ tone on EJs can vary to quite a large degree?

    Eye Jackets came in a few varieties.

    FMJ 45, FMJ 9mm, FMJ 5.56, and FMJ 7.62 are all pretty close.

    45 is a little darker, 7.62 has a little more chrome, 9mm is a bit more flat and grey, 5.56 is the normal silver.

    I know the four colours for the handguns FMJ's but what I'm referring to is difference in tonal values between the same colours ,Rust.

    My bad, thought you might have gotten a 9mm instead of a 5.56.

    I don't think they're 9mm: these ones have a slight yellow tint to them ?
