FDE Gen 4 GLOCK 21

Here are some photos of one of the Flat Dark Earth Gen 4 G21s from Lipsey’s. As you can see, the removable backstrap panels are Black. However, the Gen 4 G17 I also picked up has color matching FDE backstraps. The holster is from High Threat Concealment developed in conjunction with our friends at C2 Shooting Center. More on them soon but we will say one thing; 3-5 day wait times for holsters. The background is an issue Gen III ECWCS Level 4 windshirt.

    I’d like to apply this color to a glock 23 I already have. Any hints on how this was done or where I can have it done?

    I’ve heard cerakote does well, but i’m not sure it can be applied to a polymer frame.

      It was done at the material level from the factory.

      I know some guys have used duracoat or gunkote. See if any local gunsmiths do it in your area. I plan on paying to get mine done at a local shop. If there is no one in your local area, there are plenty of shops that take out of state orders you just have to pay the shipping fees.

      Duracoat, ceracote, and the other “cotes” all work just fine on the polymer frames.

    You should post pics of your G17 and G21 together! Or just the G17. I really want to see it in FDE 🙂

    Have a nice day.

    Thanks for dropping the hint on High Threat Concealment! I had been looking for a Raven-ish holster for a while but didn’t want to bother with wait times.

    I ordered my HTC for my G17 on a Friday and received it Wednesday. Great product, but I’ll let you handle the review.
