    I think certain Titanium Nitride processes give a yellowish color. Maybe that's what they're using?

    Anyway, yes, it's a gimmick. But a cool looking gimmick.

    Yeah, I know we're all tough guys that spray paint our guns in the hope we'll scratch 'em up so they look battle-worn and so we can prove how cool we are cuz we don't give a crap how our guns look, right? Guess what? That's a gimmick, too.

    Some people care way to much that other shooters aren't as cool as them cuz they like a different color.
