Your knowledge is correct. I got an OD frame. I asked if they might have any of the FDE frames and he said that he had never seen any there, so it is completely a Lipsey's thing.
And, it is because of the difference between using a flash and not using one. This happened to me when I first bought the OD 21 and I actually made a post about it in "The 21 Club".
"Flat Dark Earth vs OD, how do you know?"
When I am looking at the gun, in my hand, it is obviously OD but when I take pics of it with a flash it looks brown or tan.
