Purple Glock

I bought my wife her first gun, a S&W .38 Special. Now after just 2 months she's already thinking about the next gun she wants. She told me today she wants a purple gun. I googled purple gun and saw some images of purple guns including purple glocks. Any ideas of where I can find/order something like that?

You can find someone to cerakote it purple. Also, there's a dealer on gun broker who does this and has tons of glocks in random colors for sale. I forget the dealers name, but theyre easy to find if you just search glock 19s on gun broker.

Make sure that you degrease your gun, then put in one package of dye (whatever color you want), 1 cup of salt, 1 tablespoon of laundry detergent in enough water to cover the gun. Get the mix simmering, not boiling.

Not sure if its going to work all that great when the base color is black. But you can try. Make sure you post some pics when you're done!

oh no....not me. i like my pistols black or stainless. a barney glock is not my cup of tea.

i wonder if he may have to go two stage to get it to work. like a lighter color, followed by a bolder purple

I would think you might have to primer it with some etching primer for plastics then try to dye it. I have no idea how purple would turn out on a black gun.

You just refinish it with Duracoat. I have a bottle of purple to do one for my wife, but haven't gotten around to it.

You can also hydro-dip, but you'll have to really search for someone to do purple.

You won't be able to dye the black frame purple. If you got an FDE, you could dye that. Sort of like they dye the AR furniture with RIT.

Tori Nonaka from Team Glock has the slides only on her Glocks cerakote in Purple and the Purple and black contrast look great. If you google her you can see the gun in her hands in action. I believe if you go to Ammoland.com and go through the competition section there are also pictures.

IMHO, this would be best way to go. Slide only. Then to make even nicer, I would duracoat the baseplates and trigger ONLY yourself.

This water treatment (less salt & dye) also works to repair dry plastic edges fraying every couple of years (place in cold water & bring to a slow boil, then remove)...

Recoil Magazine did a nice piece on dyeing polymer parts. I was thinking about doing it to my magazines to keep them from disappearing.

Prince, Purple Rain comes to mind. I think it would look cool if that is what the Mrs. wants.

That Hello Kitty! Glock is rather tastefully done. I wonder if they've done a Hello Pony version for the bronies.

That other thing looks like a cheap toy.

Try STG firearms in Phoenix, they have alot of different color glocks on Gunbroker. They are really good guys to deal with, I bought my Dan Wesson from them.

Thanks everyone for the tips and suggestions. It's not something we're going to move on right now, but maybe in the future, and you've given me some options. My thought is I'd hate to do it because of resale value but I've only ever sold one gun (not a glock) and if it's what she wants, I can certainly understand that because she doesn't give me a hard time about things that I "have to have." Thanks again for your input.
