    Flat Dark Earth Glock 19 Christmas 2012

    I'm very fortunate and blessed. I'm getting the Flat Dark Earth Glock 19 I've been wanting. I'm getting it for Christmas!

    I picked it up today and am pleased with the color. After I had looked at some online, I started to have some doubts and wondered if I would like it or not. It must be a difficult color to photograph because there are a lot of FDE Glock pictures on the internet and they all vary greatly in appearance. I will say, however, it is nowhere near the Magpul FDE furniture that is on my AR. I'm thinking that Glock's OD may be more compatible with Magpul FDE. Some people say that the Glock FDE is more like Coyote Brown, I don't know, you guys will have to tell me what you think.

    I have a set of Trijicon night sights (just like the ones on my G23) that were supposed to come with the Glock but they haven't shipped yet. It's no biggie but I'll also look forward to getting them installed.

    Nice, congratulations.

    I believe you've hit the nail on the head, it's not easy to get a good pic.

    Thanks, Zonker.

    It does look like chocolate, doesn't it?

    My brother was looking at mine and said it looked like a Tootsie Roll color.

    I saw a post on another forum the other night and those guys were talking like that the FDE Glock color (that was made in the past) was a different color as opposed to the ones they're making now.

    Nice looking Glock! I like to change things up a bit as opposed to always going with an all black gun.

    I love it! I'm thinking of getting one of my Glocks done in that color.

    I had doubts about that color when I first saw it, too.
    I was just at our local gun shop a few days ago and one was in the case...I think I like it.
    Congrats on the perfect Christmas gift.

    Congrats. Now make sure you wrap the package and leave it under the tree until Christmas morning.
