I would like to see pics of Glocks will olive drab frames.

If you wanted to turn your Glock receiver from black to green, what product would you use?

I to would like to see some pics.
If I was to color my frame I would just use Krylon easy touch up and cheep.

Just some advice and please do not be offended. I would not recomend Krylon on you Glock frame it would peel or chip for sure. Glock does make some special editions. I saw one that was in six color desert cammo and carbon fiber look and they were from the factory. Plastic is very tricky when you go to paint it if you want a nice long term finish. I would recomend getting another with the frame color you want or trading yours in. The reason why is even if you like it the resale if you need to sell it will go way down if you paint it your self. Just some advice and I hope if you do paint it that it turns out well.

Thanks, BLY.

ETA: Anyone else think they look more tan than green?

The color is kinda of odd. If seems to look different colors depending on what the background is. Put it with Green, it looks more Olive, put it with Tan, it looks more Dark Khaki.

It's really hard to photograph and do the color justice

I started a thread a while back and it has several pictures and links to places that can refinish your Glock: The Definitive Camo-Refinished Glock Thread

The color is definitely hard to capture -- it depends heavily on the light. In bright light it appears more tan, in dark light it appears more green. Not a bad thing really.

Thanks for the info. I guess I will have to go to the fun store and check one out.

I found that whether or not I was using a flash, the farther away I got, the greener it looked.

If I was a better photographer...

The OD 21 is with a Wilson CQB for a color comparison. The 20C is Norreled...

How has the coating on the 20C held up?

It has held up well so far.
I also did a 17 which sees more use and it is doing well...
