Will There Be A Plum Lipsey’s/Vickers Glock?

Larry Vickers recently posted this photo he found on the internet to demonstrate what might be in a future limited edition Lipsey’s/Vickers Tactical Glock.  

He offered this explanation:

Ok so one idea that kicked around for a future Lipseys -Vickers Glock is a plum frame; the idea behind this is ( as the story goes) when the Soviets first tried to make black polymer for the AK it came out funky and more plum. Since the Glock is the AK of pistols a nice dark plum frame would be cool on a future run. We are thinking to match the Magpul plum to make everyone happy; it’s not as dark plum as some of the Soviet stuff but is darker than other shades of plum in the AK market. This pic is a frame that has been painted to match but I include it for your consideration; the pic is not mine as I found it on the internet.

    Meh. I think it’s stupid since the only connection to the plum coloring is “Hey an AK works and so does a Glock, sooooo Plum!”, but it will sell.

    Colored Glocks + Vickers always sell.

    what’s that saying, “just because you can doesn’t mean you should”.

    Interesting, but I’d rather have a green Glock for St. Patrick’s Day.

    What, no light urple color?

    I feel it…way down in my plums!

    Make it Bakelite orange and you’d have my attention. Extra points for using a G42 with the Lone Wolf 9×18 conversion. ­čÖé

    Looks gay.
    AKs suck ass.
    It doesnt matter what color the frame is when you are holding it.

    Maybe I just don’t “get it” when it comes to plum, but I’m an RTF2 fanboy, and I have 8 of the Vickers RTF2 pistols so far.

    As far as guns go, the RTF2 texture already makes them a niche product; I just don’t see demand for RTF2 Glock pistols in a color like this.

    On the other hand, if they could get some kind of special arrangement to do a run in Amchar’s Battlefield Green color, I’m sure they’d sell like hotcakes.

    Well isn’t that plumb dandy…

    Seriously, if they are going to go there, I have some color requests:

    Chromate Green

    Chromate Yellow

    UK Hull Red

    Duck Egg Blue
