    Glock ?? OD or Black?

    Guys,

    I am about to get a G26 and went to look at them and the LGS has one used with a OD frame...cant tell it from new. I can get it alot cheaper than a new black framed one. Who carries the OD ones and do they hold their value like a black one??? thanks for the help. Robbie

    It's a Glock...there's thousands of other pistols out there just like it.

    Value wise, it'll be the same.

    I don't have an OD G26, but my G17 is OD; I like it, it's the same shade of khaki as my Maxpedition Jumbo...and I just love it when my gun matches my bag.

    I couldn't stand OD Glocks when they first came out. They have grown on me. Now I think they are pretty cool. If it will save you some money, why not?

    It is better to have your gun and not need it, than to need it and not have it!

    I agree. While I'd never go for an OD Glock myself, it's still a Glock, and anything that will get you into a Glock sooner than later will be a good thing. Glock on!

    It's all about your personal taste.

    I'd consider it for an equal price and be totally into it for significant savings. Lots of people prefer OD and search it out. I'm also partial to FDE ARs though.

    I have a black G19, an OD G23 and an OD G33. I bought each based on price and really didn't have a preference either way. Now that I own them, I actually prefer them to the black. Especially in the summer, my OD guns blend with khaki pants a lot easier when I'm wearing cargo pants and a T-shirt. They really don't show up as well as a black gun. Also, my truck has tan interior. When I drive the gun squeezes between the seat cushions beside my leg. The OD gun in a brown holster is hardly noticeable.

    It depends on the light as to whether I like them or not, I like the olive dark green, the tan hasn't really grown on me.

    I tend to dress in black, navy and dark brown so for me carry Glock will be black (OC only state and OC isn't common so if it ave a few ManWithHolstereGun calls I'm for it), but if I ever get the $$ for a range toy and GSSF matches, I'd probably be all over an OD one.

    Value isn't going to vary, it's just a matter of preference; how it looks doesn't change how it functions, and it's still a Glock so you know it'll run and look great.

    If you are concerned about resale value, you may be buying the wrong gun.

    A.) It is a GLOCK and will work just as well OD, black or yellow.
    B.) You won't be selling anyway, so what does it matter!

    That being said, possibly in 40-50 years, when Gen10 GLOCKs are on the market, some collector may pay a different price for the OD. But if that is the case I would imagine that it would be higher due to the smaller numbers in production.

    I got a deal on a new G36 some time ago and never actually saw the gun until I went in to get it. It was OD. Did it shoot better/worse? Nah, it's a GLOCK!

    Either way it's still a Glock and you can't go wrong. If the OD is cheaper and you want to save some money then go for it.
