Is Glock Considering New Colors?

tiffany-co-glock

Glock sent out a survey a few weeks back asking participants if they’d consider purchasing a Glock in different frame colors. The choices were Flat Dark Earth, Desert Sand, OD Green or Sniper Gray. They also asked what frame color you’d choose if the gun was a gift for a woman. The options for the second question were Black, Pink, Purple, Tiffany Blue as well as the colors from the previous question. Glock has made frames in Flat Dark Earth and OD Green in the past, perhaps they’re looking to expand their options in the future. What colors would you like to see Glock release?

    Sniper Gray is the only color left outside of more conventional colors to catch my eye. Although the “sniper” part of the name is a little iffy and out of place especially when it’s on the same list as Desert Sand and Flat Dark Earth. I would have called it “Gunmetal Gray” if I really needed a more descriptive adjective, and even then that sounds meh.
    Magpul also started to offer gray colored accessories out of pure customer demand. So mixing and matching’s there for the urban warfighter I guess.

    • sianmink

      Magpul’s ‘Stealth Gray’ is a good color and a good name. I agree that Sniper Gray is a little weird and nonsensical.

    • Rusty Shackleford

      The only reason I can think of for naming it that is because the coding for the color might be the same as Cerakote’s Sniper Grey.

  • iksnilol

    No pimptastic 14k gold plating? I am disappointed considering that 14k gold plating is inexpensive.

  • TangledThorns

    I like the gray but it’s about personal preference. I’m certain the Navy and Air Force service members would prefer the pink ;)

    • 1leggeddog

      shots fired!

    • usmcmailman

      ALL the gays are in the Army Tank full of thorns !

      • TangledThorns

        Thanks to Obama that’s probably the case nowadays. #prayforAmerica

    • Nicks87

      That’s funny because why? …Oh, gays in the military? It’s 2014 I thought we were past all that. Also, guess what, there were plenty of gays in the military before they changed the policy.

  • JohnnyBGood

    I’m surprised they actually called it Tiffany Blue. To use that color they would probably have to strike some sort of deal with Tiffany because that particular color is trademarked. Granted they could make it a shade lighter or darker (like that Kahr from Cabela’s) but then it wouldn’t be “Tiffany Blue” so you couldn’t use that name.

  • Kovacs Jeno

    Before thinking about new colors, Glock should make a 9 mm Luger Glock 42, with proper Gen4 grip-set and a +2 mag bottom.

    • Zachary marrs

      I belive you mean parabellum? I dont want to see glocks idea of a luger

      • Dick is a Dick

        He means 9mm Luger, the cartridge.

        • Zachary marrs

          Yeah, the 9mm parabellum. There is no such thing as the “9mm luger cartridge”
          That was done so bubba didn’t put the wrong ammo in daddy’s war trophy

          • RickH

            There are cartridges stamped “9mm Luger”.

          • Zachary marrs

            And I can call the moon a flying turd ball, that doesn’t mean that it is. I have ammo boxes that have .45 long colt marked on them, but there is no such thing as the .45 long colt

          • Jon R.

            Most 9x19mm I’ve ever bought has been marked 9mm luger, as that is what the round is designated by SAAMI.

          • RickH

            I’m not sure I understand what point you’re trying to make.

          • Zachary marrs

            That there is no such thing as 9mm luger, that it’s REAL name is 9mm parabellum, as George luger (the man who created the cartridge) named it

          • RickH

            Yes I know the history of the cartridge, and it was also called 9mm Luger at the same time. Just as the .45 ACP was also called .45 Auto. So yes, there is such a thing as the 9mm Luger.

          • Kovacs Jeno

            The CIP-standard designation IS actually the .45 AUTO.

          • patrickiv

            Shut the fuck up.

          • Zachary marrs

            Wow, calm down. The meds are on the counter

          • greensoup

            You did not make the moon. On the other hand someone did make a box of 45 long colt which you bought. Doesn’t matter if it’s different or not. Someone made it someone bought it. Tissues or kleenex? Television or tv? Did they even have copper jacketed rounds when your not long colt was created? It could have been long colt 45, did you check the primer cavity? I’m starting to feel like we don’t really know anything.

          • Xavier McGillicutty
          • Zachary marrs

            Yes, because saami is the ultimate source of 100+ year old European ammunition

            Please.

          • Kovacs Jeno

            Saami is a standardization organization of manufacturers.

          • Zachary marrs

            Whatever, let me know when you go back to 1902 to tell George luger he named his cartridge wrong

          • Jon R.

            Well, I would say more so than a random guy on the internet.

          • Zachary marrs

            Would you tell that to George luger? He invented the round

            And what did he name it? The 9mm parabellum

          • lucusloc

            @Zachary marrs

            So by your definition the .30-06 Springfield is actually called “30 Gov’t 06″ because that is the name official given by the people who developed the round, and any other name is invalid? This despite the fact that there is virtually no contemporary usage of “30 Gov’t 06″? Oh, and .45 Auto can only be called by its one-true-name “.45 ACP” or you are a retard?

            At some point you have to accept that a new name was adopted for an old specification, and that new name is in such common usage that is is the default for industry standard documentation. When that change happens it does not matter what the original inventor called it, the new unambiguous technical term should be used. Noting that the original inventor called it “Parabellum” (“prepared for war” in Latin I believe) and that it is a name still common enough to be recognizable is fine. Insisting that that is the only correct name is silly.

            I suppose your next argument is that the moderner definition of the foot is wrong since it is not historically accurate? Or perhaps you would argue that tesla coils are rightfully called “Magnifying Trasmitters” since tht is the name given them by Tesla himself (and despite the fact that no one currently recognizes that name)?

          • Crunkomatic

            Arguing with Zachary appears to be like sword-fighting a fart. He upvotes his own comments. That’s what you’re dealing with.

          • Zachary marrs

            Arguing with people over the Internet period. A diabetic whose blood sugar is below 50 can be even worse. Sorry

          • Guest

            I had a good laugh at his posts because a friend and I just had a rant about people who like to invent arguments for the sake of arguing. Also, LOL at upvoting his on posts.

          • Zachary marrs

            Well, shit. You got a point. Thanks for spellig it out for me. Sorry for being a d_ck. Mods; feel free to delete my previous comments

          • Xavier McGillicutty

            Arguing on the internet is like competing in the Special Olympics. Even if you win, you’re still retarded.

          • Julio

            Come on… that’s just not fair on the special Olympians!

          • Zachary marrs

            And by yalls logic, saami could call the .45 acp the “pony killer 45″, but that doesn’t mean that’s it’s real name

          • Kovacs Jeno

            The ammo you Americans call simply as nine millimeter IS the 9 mm Luger by official, standardized name by CIP.
            We use it with Luger name because .380 Acp is 9 mm Browning Short, and in East Europe, the 9×18 Makarov is also widely used.

          • John

            9mm Luger is 9mm Parabellum. They’re different words for the same cartridge, like how 9mm Kurz is the same as .380 ACP.

  • WV Cycling

    Not a female, but I do like that Tiffany Blue.

    Love nearly any gun in Desert Sand, just to stay on he masculine side.

    • DV

      Well now yousa a female, in Gastons eyes.

  • KestrelBike

    If the OD Green is actually OD green and not dying-dog-diarrhea like they did in the past.

    • Rusty Shackleford

      …Or in Field Drab 30118.

  • Jon R.

    Glock 19 with a Magpul Flat Dark Earth frame, shut up and take my money!

  • BryanS

    My wife would be angry if it wasn’t black. Very angry if it was a bright color, especially pink.

    • jules2u

      Love it Bryan, I am kind of the same way, if I want a fashion statement it will be my clothing or a purse, but keep my guns looking like guns

  • danny

    do it in PLUM, like ak74 furniture!!!!PLUM!PLUM!PLUM

  • ColaBox

    Need more then a color change that’s for sure.

  • David Sharpe

    I’d love a Sniper Grey G19.

  • derfelcadarn

    I prefer my guns made from steel thank you, call me old fashion

  • 101nomad

    I sort of like a firearm to be a firearm, not a fashion statement.

  • Zapp Brannigan

    Pink, orange, and other bright colors should be reserved for toy guns and real guns should be in the colors that are expected for real guns (black, gray, and other dark flat colors).

  • Dan Atwater

    I could go for a 19 in purple or gray

  • patrickiv

    I would avoid the bright colors to avoid confusion with inert training pistols. Glock already makes a training pistol in red and other companies make solid polymer replicas in blue and green. http://us.glock.com/products/model/g22p

    • Kovacs Jeno

      +1

      The “Tiffany Blue” on the photo is like the “blue” simunition Glock in not so perfect light conditions.

      • patrickiv

        Beat me to it.

    • patrickiv

      Oh yeah and Glock already has a Tiffany Blue pistol out…for simunition. It would suck to get these mixed up. http://us.glock.com/products/model/g17tfx

  • JT

    If the kept the black slide, the blue one would be interesting

  • usmcmailman

    Maybe….mauve?

  • 101nomad

    “Bubba, that thar firearm you got shor is purty, sort of makes my butt twitch, know whut I mean?”

  • James Young

    Glock’s look so much better in different colors than black, so if they started doing this standard from the factory I would totally consider buying a Glock.

    I won’t buy them now only because they are basic and ugly.
