    Glock 19 frame color

    I am planning to replace my every day carry gun with a Glock 19. I will probably carry at appendix IWB with a Tucker Cover-up holster. My normal cover garment is an untucked camp shirt.

    I can get a new OD G19 for about $480. New black frames seem to be $500.

    Is there any advantage to an OD frame Glock versus a black frame for what I'm planning?

    I don't see any advantage that the OD has over the black one. If you want to have something besides a plain black gun, I don't see any reason not to go with OD. I personally like all black myself. I carry my G19 everyday in a Comp-Tac MTAC without much problem.

    I think the original purpose of the OD, Dark Earth, and whatever else was so they would blend into the uniforms of our military.

    Unfortunately, blue is used for a training pistol. Blue would be great for those of us that wear blue jeans every day incase a shirt goes above the barrel, it may keep the from freaking out about a man with a gun.

    No difference in color I do think the silver ones are the perfect CC gun. They are so ugly you would be embarrassed to show it to anyone.

    I bought an OD G19, suits me just fine. Use that extra $20 for another box of ammo.

    I can't see how the color of the Glock makes any difference whatsoever. Buy whatever color you prefer, everybody has their own opinion, maybe that is why they make different colors in the first place?

    The green ones make you more Tacticoool in a green enviorment.
    Just kidding.

    The one thing I do like about an off color gun, is it is not the norm.

    I've never been a fan of different colors other than black or stainless. I carry an all black G19 in a VMII.

    I prefer the black, only because I got my 19 free, thru a Glock drawing at a local shop.
