    Looking for a new ccw, I currently have a first gen walther pps 40. I would like to get a 9mm and shot a glock for the first time the other day, besides the grip angle i was surprised how shootable the 26 and 43 were. I know i could get used to the grip angle though. Now for my question, my local gunshop had an all tan 43, all eggshell blue 43 and maybe grey. When i go to glocks website i only see them advertise a od green framed one besides the black. I would like a colored one but only if its factory done by glock. I don't want painted polymer, so can anyone tell me what colors are factory colored polymer and not cerakote?

    As a 2017 summer special GLOCK run, an OD green framed G43 will be issued.

    From an old GT thread...

    In addition to black, the G43 is available from the factory in BFG, Gray, and FDE.

    All of these are solid color thru and thru just like the black. No cerakote, paint, etc.,.

    I was lucky enough to get a grey 43 some time ago. I use it every day and no wear.

    Mine is FDE. I like it as it blends in with my Khakis pretty well. I agree on wanting one that is not rattle can painted. Seems like there are plenty of colors to choose from these days.

    The National Association for the Advancement of Colored Glocks has about got me convinced to get a non-black G43, to avoid any confusion with my G42.

    Ditto if I ever add a .40 S&W and /or a 10mm among my 9s & .45.

    First pic I googled with multiple color choices:

    Thanks you guys, I really like the OD so I'll probably try and get one of those. I still like the sig p938, any opinions on that? I do know that there will be some bias lol.

    Also, Glock never colors their slides... Always black.

    I really like the BFG 43. Unfortunately, it came out a couple of months after I got my 43.

    Amazingly, someone would probably pay extra for the worn look.

    druryj; what did you do to that poor G43? It looks like it got tossed out of an Aircraft in Afghanistan! Ouch!

    Black is a color. :miff:

    :supergrin:

    I'm actually toying with getting another 43. It is one of my favorite Glocks. If I do, that new summer special OD may be the one for me.

    My wife bought herself a all purple 43 for our last anniversary. Even the slide is purple. The slide bit her there first day out together so she sticks with her 17.
