    Anyone else seen the P99 in desert tan with the titanuim finish

    My title says it all. It was gorgeous wish more of the tan guns came with stainless or chrome finish in stead of flat black.

    PS I keep posting this. Anyone seen the Taurus PT-745 with the tan frame? They don't produce it anymore. Yes tan not black. Stainless slide with tan grip, damn it butty-ful.

    Well, they no longer make a titanium finished Walther. And, the Tan frame is something very new. To my knowledge, there is and never was no such animal. The tan frame came out after the titanium finish was stopped.

    Someone either hard chromed the slide on a tan frame, mixed the slide of an old titanium finished P99 to a new frame, or duracoated the frame.

    I wondered that at times myself. I've been to many different gunstores and I've never seen any make/model handgun on display that's multi colored.

    Nah dude, I went to the gun store yesterday. Yesterday!(needed Break-Free) Can't tell me what I saw and held.
    I'm not saying titanium cause i think it was, but the side of the slide had titanium engraved in it.
    I don't doubt they may have put an old slide on a tan frame, still beautiful.
    Once again, no one I've ever asked about the Taurus PT-745(even the gun store that was selling it had any recollection) says it exist, but I've held it.
    I've seen the Grey slide Glocks too.

    Yup. Not a half-bad idea, that one.

    Essentially, that is just a shrink wrap over the Glock frames. If U peak underneath - they are OD green frames. U'll eventually see it as that covering wears.

    I kinda like the desert covering Glocks, though.

    The tan frame is actually an ugly, ugly tan. Was that tan nice looking? If it was, then someone duracoated the frame.

    Was it the new style frame w/ an open rail, or the old style frame w/ the closed front rail and the little frame "bump" under the trigger? They quit making the titanium slides before the new style frames came out. But, the tan slides were only made in the new frames...

    Somethin' screwy going on around here

    I'm going to the range tomorrow I'll stop into the store and see if it's still there so everyone can EAT IT!
    I hope to god it's still there.
    Now all i have to do is figure out how to post it on my computer. That's the real test.

    If i see anything else unusual I'll take a pic.

    It's gotta be man made - not factory

    I hate not being believed.
