    I am looking to buy my first Glock and I am confused by the colors. What does Glock call the tan color and what do they call the green color?

    Glocks only come in two colors, black and olive drab. The olive drab color isn't really olive drab, it's more of a mix between olive drab and desert tan. The pictures of the OD(olive drab) Glocks you'll see on the internet won't do the color justice. You have to see one in person to really get a feel for the color.

    Technically, there's four (4) colors. Add red and blue framed "training" Glocks.

    There is a good chance that the OD will be dropped in the G4 Glocks due to lack of sales.

    Really drop the OD? My OD G19 was on back order for 4 weeks. The two local dealers tell me the OD's sell out fast. It seems to me the colors are popular right now, FN,HK, SA XD's,SIG,Kimber,etc.. seems like everyone is doing the colors now?

    My OD 23 is green, like the Gap in the pic above, never seen a sand and green mix.

    I guess I'm one of the crazy ones that doesn't think Glocks OD looks like anything else I've ever seen called "olive drab." Looks darn close in the pics but mine sure looked a lot closer to tan.
