So I'm completely in love with the light gray HK guns but never see any of their pistols for sale in gray. I know they exist, and I see Walther is doing it with their pistols now as well. I'd give my left... arm for a gray frame on a P30. Can anyone give me a little background on these? Are they limited editions? What models came/come in gray? How does a common scumbag like me find one? If you have one please post pics, I'm always up for more porn...

They made a limited run of certain usp models in the gray. I'm not sure which ones specifically. I think it was somewhere in the ballpark of 500 in total in the gray. I could be mistaken, if so could another forum member correct this. As far as finding one, good luck. The gray ones seem to come up for sale the least in my experiences. Now that I think of it I may remember having seen a Mark 23 on gray once too.

I found this from the original press release:
http://hkus.nutech.com/images/media/press/colorframepistols.pdf said:
The Heckler & Koch color frame variations are available in the following configurations:
Gray—USP 45 and USP 40 Compact; Green—USP 45, USP 40, USP 40 Compact and USP 45
Tactical; Desert Tan—USP 45, USP 40, USP 40 Compact and USP 45 Tactical and the Mark 23.
Suggested retail prices for the color frame models the same as for the individual model’s black
frame variation.
So, gray is only in full size 45 and compact 40. Tan and green were a little more widespread, likely due to having been more popular colors. The only colored Mark23 was the desert tan version.

You asked for pictures, the first post in this thread pretty well sums up the available frames: http://www.hkpro.com/forum/hkpro-members-gallery/144397-show-us-your-factory-colored-frame-hks.html#post1069641

The P30 has never been offerred in Urban Gray. You can however have it colorized any way you want instead (including gray). There have been several threads on this in the past.

Wow I really don't like the OD & FDE frames, and I love most anything in OD! Anyway, thanks for posting that other thread, but interesting that only 1 person posted a grey gun and only 3 total posted any colored frames... That post also convinced me that I must have a gray USP before I die. Orfeo, I know I can paint the gun, but I wouldn't think paint would stick that well to plastic so that eventually it would wear and then I'd have a gray & black frame... Plus I just don't have the warewithall to do it myself. I bet if we did a group buy we could get gray frames... yes, I have seen what the member trying to get the tan frame group buy is going through to raise his 250 people... Anyway, I hope others will post to this thread. As I said earlier Walther has done this with the PPS. Looks good (and a bit blue...)
