    The last time I was pricing a new gun purchase, new Glocks could be bought online for $469

    Now the Gen 3 guns are $499, the Gen 4 guns are $549, and the OD green ones are $790 & up on auctions. :upeyes:

    How retarded. Luckily I was able to find a dealer that apparently does its own frame coloring and does it for a good price. One of the pistols looked just like OD green.

    So yeah, I think I'll take a Gen 4 in OD green for about $3-400 less than a used OD gun someone somewhere raised the price on just because they stopped making them.

    Its all about supply and demand. If people are stupid enough to pay $800 for a friggen Glock, they deserve to get hosed.

    That's how I look at it. You can't blame the seller.

    I'm glad I got mine before Glock confirmed they were discontinuing them. Even the used ones are selling for what would be retail for an average Glock.

    If I were considering making a black frame into OD, I'd probably have it done professionally with CeraKote, it looks pretty darn close to Glock's factory OD color:

    That is the seller I found! Look at their 4th Gen 26

    I'd rather have that for less than $600

    Hey now, my daughters would love that, and when they are old enough I will probably get them each their own 9mm.
