Help me choose, I like both and both are available..whichever wins is the one I'm buying.
I don't prefer funky colors on my guns, myself. Black, blue or stainless for me.
I like the notion of most anything realistically colored other than black.
Of course, I live in Arizona and it really does make a difference. Used to rattle can our pistols, M16s and M-4s on deployment as much for the heat as any overtly tactical consideration.
I missed the poll .. all my pistols are black ,, cept my 23 .. I like it ...
bored with black, FDE.....
On the subject of the pistol itself, I really liked the Hellcat I shot.
Whichever one is cheaper, or flip a coin if they are the same.
Wasn't a fan of the all FDE guns when they came out but I kind of like the FDE frame with the black finished slide. More I see it, the more I like it. It sort of grows on you after awhile.
So I'm no help in this matter, unless of course you can switch slides on the guns!
Sure can if he buys em BOTH.....like he should...
Man, I like the way you think!
I went with the FDE OSP model. I just liked it better and it had a good poker hand serial number. For some reason I have to buy guns with serial numbers I like. Took it out right away, it shoots great. I like the 365, but I like the Hellcat better. Will probably put the little Sig on the market soon.
Either model in OSP config! You might now want an optic on it now. But just in case you do want to change your mind, you can do so easier with the OSP version.
I love my Hellcat!
Yup, I got the OSP thinking the same thing.
I have a "Battlefield Green" framed Glock 45 and they even did the polymer around the mags to match..it is the only Glock I own that I like the look of..lol
When I bought my 5.7 maybe 15 years ago, I stood there for 30 minutes debating on black/ FDE/ or OD. I wound up buying black and one of the other two. Don't remember which. So it really doesn't matter
I despise colored guns. I don’t even like black controls on stainless guns.
I'm with you, although I could appreciate a simple dark gray or FDE
They can be nice, true.
I also don't always follow my preference, as I do have and like my baby poop brown Glock 19X
A friend of mine got a 19X as soon as they hit these shores.. His slide is poop brown color while the one I finally received a couple of weeks ago seems different, more shine and darker color.
Yeah there's certainly a variance in the slides, I do like the purple on the inside of my slide.
But with two kids, one just finally getting out of diapers. I've spent waaaaaay too much time dealing with stuff the same shade of brown both the slide and frame are.
Still a great shooter though, once I got it, my 17 went down the road and I dont miss it.
Mine's purple inside too! Agreed, I like the 45 and 19X more than the 19 and 17. I wanted a 45 MOS in the worst way, but the 19X will do.
FDE is hideous.
I have two firearms in FDE.........I love them both. Both are Springfields.....one is a 9MM Mod 2 subcompact and the other is a 45 ACP Mod 2 subcompact. I really like the looks of them.
