I got one off gunbroker for about the price you're seeing them. I thought it was a steal! I wasn't crazy about the color until I got it, now I love it!! Mine is he full size, just saw you're talking compact. For that price I'd buy it in a second.
As long as you like it that's all that matters. But I like both the desert sand and the OD green look along with the new FDE look. Love options!I know mostly no one seems to be a fan of the sand color. I haven't actually seen one in person yet, but I see some places selling them for $749 while the normal black and even the OD green models are still in the high 900's.
I'm thinking about picking up the sand and even if I hate it...I could have it cerakoted and still come out cheaper. Or even spray paint in in like OD or black colors and let it wear. The bits that wear through will just be that light sand color... Kind of the reverse of what you see when someone spray paints a black glock with khaki paint and it wear through a bit.
I know a lot of people hate that look, but I don't mind it so much. I might even pony up the cash to get the battle worn cerakote from someone like blowndeadline. He's got some VP9 samples that are amazing looking.
If anyone has any good pics of the sand 45C, especially is painted, I would love to see them before I pull the trigger on this.
Picked up the new 45C today. I must say that I am much more impressed with the color in person than I was from most photos online. It seems to me like this color is kind of like the original Glock "OD" where they appeared to be coyote tan in photos but were clearly green in person.
These things look very mustard yellow in most photos, but it looks a lot better in person... at least to me. The trigger is quite smooth right out of box, so that's good. It is fairly heavy in DA, per usual with HK's. A few thousand dry fires should lighten that up a little bit.
I'm happy with it so far! Wishing my holster would hurry up and get here.
I think these photos fairly accurately represent the real color of the gun. For $749, it's a freaking steal!
Yep. It says they still have 6 in stock at this price.$749?? Anymore in stock?
