    Does anyone know if Glock will offer the FDE models under their blue label program?

    I'd love to get a 17 Gen 4 in FDE.

    As far as I was recently told,.......no. It's a limited run deal
    for a large distributor. However, that is how the OD Green model
    got it's start as well. Many of those produced. I have a FDE
    G19 hitting mit delaer today. :supergrin:

    Glock doesn't sell FDE guns anymore. That's an aftermarket tx.

    The FDE, flat dark earth, is being produced in the 3rd Gen
    and Gen 4 models.

    See the link to Lipsey's below.......

    You are correct. As of two months ago, they were not producing any. I just got off the phone with them, and they have (rather recently) started producing these. Thanks for the info.

    The Glock rep that attended and helped instruct the two day Glock defensive handgun class I took last weekend said more FDE Glocks are on the way. They were pleased with how fast the first batch produced for Lipsey's sold out.

    Best the management guy I spoke with this morning could tell me was, yes, there were some factory FDE's, yes, they were actually factory, unlike the various aftermarket finishes out there being sold as NIB when they weren't, and that they were exclusively shipped to one sole distributor, which evidently was Lipsey's as you posted.

    Bill, welcome to the FDE party. No need to tell us we know that we're talking about :)

    Lipseys commissioned 5,000 units each of nine models. That makes 45,000 total. A second production run is scheduled for August/September delivery.

    Actually, his post was when I knew they were really factory. But I know you were just kidding.
