Well I think thats a confusing question because guns are made out of different metals these days, but you are probably looking for carbon steel.  Traditional retailers aren’t going to have that.  You could also look into titanium, which would have the same kind of look but be easier to find.

@carlypaige:  Yeah, I think this might be a little confusing because “gunmetal” is a color, a shade of gray. Does he want a particular shade of gray? Or does he want his ring to be made out of the same thing that guns are made of?

Gunmetal is less of a metal and more of a color. It usually refers to a dark shade of grey with undertones of browns and reds. Not quite black, but not quite the grey we think of.

Like this:

from TheSlyFox on Etsy.

Typically, these kinds of rings don’t sell well and aren’t popular “in the real world.” You’ll probably have much better luck finding a ring online. TBH I’d be searching for dark ceramic rings — They visually look much similar and will probably open a lot more doors than if you just look for “gunmetal rings”

@carlypaige:  I always thought gun metal was a color, not the actual metal itself.

tungsten and some of the alternative metals are what pops in my mind.
