Heckler & Koch – New Flat Dark Earth VP9 Pistol + Optics Ready

I think it’s safe to say that Heckler & Koch doesn’t need a deeper introduction to the readers of this blog.

The pistols have a combination of a black slide on an FDE frame. Other features remain the same, like the striker-fired trigger, the 17-round magazines, and versatile ergonomics with a huge number of interchangeable side panels and backstraps.

Flat Dark Everything! Tyrant Designs' New FDE ITTS Trigger

Flat Dark Earth is indisputably one of the most popular finishes for both handguns and rifles. With popular pistols like the FN509 and many Glock pistols coming in factory configurations featuring the subdued earth tone color, it’s only natural that a lot of people piecing together their own P80 in that very same color might want a high-quality CNC machined trigger to populate the grip module. Tyrant Designs’ new FDE ITTS Trigger has just been announced and is now shipping and available with two options for hardware color.

Flat Dark Earth Everything: FN Expands Pistol Line With All-FDE Models

The color of the handgun is apparently a very important factor for the sales of firearms, and FDE (Flat Dark Earth) is still very much in fashion. In fact, it’s so important that FN America has chosen to offer the FN Five-seveN and the FN 503 in all-FDE. I have to say I really like FDE, but on a handgun – especially one designated for EDC carry – something black or darker would be my personal preference.

S&W Upgrades Best Sellers with M-LOK, Mini Red Dots & Flat Dark Earth

Smith & Wesson has a lot of popular firearms in their inventory, but there are some that definitely pay the bills more than others. That short-hand list likely includes the Sport II 5.56 NATO, Shield 9mm/.40 S&W, and the Performance Center C.O.R.E. 9mm. Keeping that in mind, even if Smith & Wesson has some golden geese on their hands someone is bound to complain its the wrong shade of gold. Something more flat dark earth colored would obviously be better, right? Well, Smith & Wesson listened to consumers and added in some new variations of their bread ‘n butter models.
