FDE vs Grey Glocks

Henry Ford famously said when talking about one of his mass-produced cars, “You can have any color you want as long as it’s black”. If there is a gun maker that has inherited the legacy of mass-production, no frills selection it’s Glock.

I am the first to admit that I am tired of black guns. It would seem so are many of you. When Lipsey’s had Glock do a a custom color run, they sold very well. So it was no surprise that Glock has been convinced to do a second run in Grey.

Will that new color make me want to run out and buy a duplicate of a Glock already in the armory? No. But it’s nice to have options. On my long term possible to buy list would be a GEN 4 model 20 & 26. And if something other than black were available, I would most certainly buy it.

A few months ago while on the road, I stopped in a local gun shop and noticed they stocked both the Grey and FDE pistols. Being curious, I snapped a few pictures since they were hard to come by at the time. Looking back at the photos I think the grey color still looks good.

Makes you wonder what colors might be next? A re-run of the military green? Perhaps a LE inspired blue?
