I agree with you on the color. My local range put out an e-mail for pre-orders with a pic of a small piece of one. Not enough of a pic to impress me. Then they got a 19 gen 4 in. Seeing one in person impressed me but I already have a 19 gen 4 so couldn't justify it. Then the following week they had the 23 gen 4 and that was all she wrote. I can justify a different frame color and generation. I saw your other response about the timing. When they announced they would be taking pre-orders I figured it would be months before I would see one in person. I think it was just a couple of weeks here too.
