What's the difference between the colors "gun metal" and "grey" and "silver?"
I see it in fashion, cars, motorcycles, jewelry, you name it all over tv...I guess it's different hues or tones in a color, but shees!
How many do we need?
Oh and then in the Audi line, they have more..."Dolphin" grey and so on...

If it isn't in the Crayola 8-pack I'd be lucky to know it.

Its like going from dull to semi gloss to shiny!
Grey = Dull
Gun Metal = Semi Gloss
Silver = Shiny!
That's the best I can describe it as.

Gray is a generic term for a scale of shades with any combination of black and white
Silver and gunmetal are both metallic shades of gray,
Silver is a specific type of metal, typically a light shade, very luminous and reflective.
Gunmetal is an alloy (mixture) of metals, usually a darker, cooler (bluer) shade, which is less luminous and reflective.

I work a lot with colors. Not only is there Gun metal and silver and dolfin and all these specialty colors but there are variations of each. So you can have gun metal 1 which is different than gun metal 30, etc.

Reminds me of a paint commercial. They had colors like "Freedom Trail".
How can you name a color after something that has no color? Might as well have a color called "Summer Breeze".

I have a dark gold Concorde that they call "cinnamon" because that's what color the spice is....my registration says- "red", I guess like cinnamon candies. Someone at the DMV tried to translate it I think and they won't change it so it's a pain if I ever get pulled over...
