News from Glock at IWA Germany. Let there be COLOR…

    “Coloured frames”

    I’m actually not sure if I’m going to write that Glock had no news at IWA this year, or if – stop press(!) – Glock released some of the biggest news ever?

    I’ll let you decide, but please study the pictures closely before deciding.

    Having seen these “coloured frames” in the flesh I am disappointed.

    Choice is always nice, of course, and Gaston Glock will most likely have a laugh at collectors that now have to buy 3-4 times the amount of Glocks to have ‘everything’.

    However my disappointment is mainly due to that Glock chose very strange tones.

    For instance, I’m a big fan of Olive Drab, but the “Battle Field Green” is very…uncool, and so goes for the rest of Glock spectrum.

    In my opinion Glock simply chose the wrong tones. They’re probably too “light” in color for my liking.

    Perhaps they’re perfect for you, and the answer to your call?


    The one in the middle is black.

    Battle Field Green” with and without camera flash.




    Flat Dark Earth” is what Glock calls this. Other things come to mind when I see this color.




    Not “Wolf Grey” or some other cool name, just “Grey”.

    Again, a darker version would have been my choice.



    Glock wants you to rate their new colors. I’ll go black. They’re all “3s, don’t like” to me.


    So, am I too pessimistic or is this the future for Glock?

    You are more than welcome to rate these new colors below.
