Lipsey’s Is Now Offering Grey Framed Glocks

Wednesday, July 1st, 2015



Baton Rouge, LA — Lipsey’s, nationally renowned firearms distributor, is officially launching a gray GLOCK that is now available in several models.

Lipsey’s has staked its claim in the Flat Dark Earth arena with dozens of GLOCK models in two tone and full FDE. However, Lipsey’s continues to stay on the cutting edge of trends and what the pulse of dealers and customers are clamouring for. The gray GLOCK is it.

These Gen4 GLOCK’s feature a factory molded gray frame with black slide. They are now available in the following models: G17, G19, G20, G21, G22 and G23. Included with each pistol are four gray interchangeable back straps.

With the overwhelming success of the Lipsey’s Exclusive Flat Dark Earth GLOCK models, Product Development Manager Jason Cloessner was ready to blaze another trail in a market wanting more than standard black guns. When asked about the concept behind the project he had this to say, “With the growing trend of gray in both the AR-15 and tactical accessory market, the timing has never been better for a gray framed version of one of the most popular semi-automatic pistols in the world.”


Lipsey’s Announces GLOCK 42 in FDE

Thursday, June 18th, 2015


Baton Rouge, LA — Lipsey’s, nationally renowned firearms distributor, has added the much anticipated Flat Dark Earth version of the Glock 42 to their robust line of FDE Glocks.

The new Lipsey’s Exclusive Glock 42 adds another excellent option to the growing family of FDE pistols which now spans 33 models including two-tone and full Flat Dark Earth.

Lipsey’s Product Development Manager, Jason Cloessner, has been working with Glock for several months on adding Lipsey’s signature FDE to one of the most popular .380 ACP’s on the market. “The FDE line of Glocks have firmly entrenched themselves as a mainstream item. The Glock 42 was a natural follow-up to what has become one of our most in-demand exclusive offerings.“

All of Lipsey’s Exclusive Flat Dark Earth Glocks are molded in the FDE color at the Glock factory. This molding method provides greater color durability that prevents chipping, peeling and better wear resistance as opposed to some offerings that feature aftermarket coatings applied to the frames.

Located in Baton Rouge, Lipsey’s was originally formed as a wholesale hunting and fishing distributor in 1953. Today it is one of the nation’s most prominent wholesale firearms distributors. The company, which sells exclusively to federally licensed dealers, has received a number of awards and accolades for its industry leadership. Moreover, Lipsey’s is recognized for its dedicated team, excellent relationships with customers and top firearms manufacturers, and exclusive product offerings.

Lipsey’s Announces Vickers Tactical Signature GLOCK 17&19

Thursday, November 6th, 2014

This team up between Lipsey’s and Larry Vickers very exciting news. While his name has long been synonymous with the 1911, LAV has been shooting GLOCKs for years. In fact, he has developed several GLOCK after market parts that will be included in this Lispey’s build on the FDE frame. I’ve already placed my order through my local Lipsey’s dealer and can’t wait to get my hands on it.



Baton Rouge, La. — Lipsey’s, a nationally renowned firearms distributor, and combat veteran Larry Vickers, the face of the tactical firearms industry have entered into partnership on two exclusive GLOCK pistol models.

Beginning today, Lipsey’s will have a limited run of Gen 3 RTF2 Frame GLOCK 17 and 19’s in flat dark earth. They come equipped with Vickers Tactical sights, mag release, slide catch and magazine base plates. These GLOCK models will also have unique serial numbers (0000LAV- 4999LAV) for collectability and authenticity. Larry Vickers chose close industry partners Wilson Combat to create the sights and Tango Down who manufactured all other parts. When asked about the joint venture Larry said, “I’m proud to be working with Lipsey’s on a pair of GLOCK pistols that not only feature my parts, but are offered in a configuration never before available in the market. Serious GLOCK fans take note, these guns are a must have.”


The FDE GLOCK has been a staple in the Lipsey’s Exclusives arsenal for several years. Lipsey’s Product Development Manager Jason Cloessner and Larry Vickers have been brewing this concept for some time. Cloessner was excited to finally unveil this project. “Larry and I have been working on this project for some time. Basically, I asked Larry to spec out a GLOCK exactly how he would want it without any compromises. The Vickers/Lipsey’s Exclusive GLOCK 17’s and 19’s are the results of this request.”


This is what LAV told me about the guns last week:

LAV0000 -LAV5000 serial number range (0001-2500 = G17 and 2501-5000 = G19)
Gen 3 RTF2 frame in FDE
Straight slide grasping grooves
Black slide with NO Vickers markings
Vickers Elite sights installed
Tritium front sight
Bag with Vickers Tangodown parts Included
G17 and G19
Discount card enclosed for 10% off a LAV pistol class
