I really hate non traditional, gimicky firearms finishes. I'm not knocking anyone who has one, but they are not for me. I saw the factory desert camo Glocks for the first time about 6 months ago, and hated them.

So, it's with utter self contempt that I admit that the new carbon fiber finished Glocks really do something for me. I have to have one. I'm hust hoping that the finish is available in the Glock 35. I absolutely love it.

I saw one today at Ross's Guns & Pawn on Warner and Arizona Ave. I didn't look at the price, I spotted it on the way out. I didn't even bother to see what model it was. Too much bling for me.

I know what you mean. I like my Glocks one way: black. Unfortunately, this one does something for me. I hope I feel differently tomorrow.

Is the carbon fiber a factory finish? Today was the first time I had ever seen them.

Is that actual carbon fiber or a paint job/sticker?
If it's really carbon fiber that would be cool otherwise another gimmick

I know it's a factory finish. I don't know if it's carbon fiber, but I highly doubt it. It's probably a film application finish.

It's a film application done by Dynamic Finishes. It's most likely done over top of a green framed GLOCK. I removed that finish from a GLOCK from a customers gun for him a few months ago. It had begun to chip off in a few places.

Seems to be pretty durable as it was a serious pain in the a$$ to get off. I don't mind the look but that film seems pretty slick and I would think it would get worse if the gun was wet.

Did you have to sit and peel it by hand? Sounds very time consuming.

No I had to scrub it off. It took over four hours of serious elbow grease. It's pretty tough stuff.

Fortunately I came to my senses. I pretty much do a grip reduction on every Glock I have, as I like the aggressive texture. There won't be any grip reduction on one of those. I'm glad I'm over my 1 day infatuation with that finish.

It is not a factory finish.

I'm glad you got over the finish. it's kinda like a ricer with phony carbon fiber parts.

Just going by what the distributor said....

I have/had one. It is an aftermarket finish by Dynamic finishes. I got a good deal on it so I bought it. The finish flaked off around the magwell slide stop trigger guard and other places. I removed the rest by scraping sanding and sweat to reveal the od green underneath. I like it much better.
I did leave some of it on in hard to remove places so the gun has accents.

Good choice to pass on this gun though IMHO.
