    I went to a gun store/ range tonight. I never shot a Glock before so I rented a Glock 17. Afterwards I asked a few questions. I asked if the Glock 17 4th generation was made in OD green. I was told I didn't want and OD green. When I asked why the salesmen told me that the OD fades and turns white. Anyone have an OD that turned White? I thought I would go to Glock Talk for the truth.

    I have never EVER heard about that. Its the same composition material as black and you dont see the black frames turning light gray or white.

    YOU CAN'T HANDLE THE TRUTH!!!!!!!!





    Seriously though, I don't own an OD GLOCK but I have NEVER seen a faded one. Maybe if you left it on the dash of your car for 10 years parked in the sun.

    Oh, and there isn't an OD GEN4 out.

    Olive Drab only turns white above 10,000 feet. It's the rays from the sun. :whistling:

    I think the salesman didn't have any OD frames glocks in stock, and didn't expect to anytime soon.

    Just a wild guess...but...I'm gonna guess that the shop didn't have one of the OD models to show you. It's Gun Shop rule #1...sell what you have...not what you don't have.

    Here are the rules once again.

    1. Don't listen to Gun store clerks.
    2. Don't listen to Gun store customers who are leaning on the counter talking about their time in the special forces in 'Nam.

    I don't think I will be buying from him. The best part of the trip was shooting the G17. It shot really nice

    Ask the gunshop owner who knows everything.... yeah ok.
    Polymers i.e. plastics don't really lose their color. I work in plastics HDPE, PP, PET etc.... the colorant used in the material is blended in, it's not gonna fade to white on you. Perhaps the gunshop owner has some black old Gen1 frames that faded to OD Green to prove he's right... :supergrin:
