I don't know man...that sure looks like a FDE to me. Glock does make the FDE...it's just an exclusive for Lipsey's. I guess it's possible for the guy you talked to...to have never seen one, but that seems strange to me. Then again you said that you have owned an OD before...so you should know whether it is or not. Either way you made out like a bandit, congrats. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
