    Anyone know how Lipsey's ships? Is it UPS or FedEx?

    Considering how well these FDE models seem to be selling, i wonder if Glock is regretting not doing this themselves....

    Has anyone that owns a OD model bought one of these FDE models? Which one do you like better?

    Its hard to tell in the pics, but is there any green in the colour? Just wondering if it doesn't show like with the OD models?

    I have an OD model and purchased a G19 and G17 in FDE that should be here monday - I will definitely put up comparison pics.

    From what I've gathered so far, they are pretty similar...

    Old OD is on top directly above a Magpul PRS in FDE. The new FDE is to the right. Pretty cool but not really FDE as it is commonly known.

    Glock did make these pistols and receives the same amount of money regardless. :yawn:

    Some are already up there at OK prices - around $550...

    I'm suprised.

    Having seen an online review showing that the MBS pieces for the FDE guns are black, I'm out on getting a Gen 4 FDE Glock. The pictures also show a much lighter color than I saw on a pair of guns locally.

    From what I understand, only the G21 has black backstraps, the other models have matching FDE backstraps.

    Ours are darker brown than most pics I've seen on the net. Nice looking. I probably like my darkish OD G17's shade a little better.

    Is that "oh, my two guns here together"
    or
    "oh my goodness, two here together!"

    If they are yours, what color are the backstraps for the 19?

    it just "oh my 2 together" so you can see a difference between the OD and the DE. All the DE frames have dark earth straps except the G21 gen4 which are black. Sorry if I confused you ...I'm still getting use to posting. I'll try my best.

    They shipped our order today FedEx, though they have used UPS in the past. I spoke to our rep there yesterday, they still had some gen4 19s, but the gen3 19s were sold out. We don't keep a lot of stock and order as people ask us to, so I don't know about availability of the other models. Of course, since word has gotten out, they're likely all gone now. Also, the price from Lipsey's to dealers is the same as the standard black models, any mark up is added by the dealers.
