For those times when you need something a bit more unique, Omaha Outdoors is here to deliver with a FDE/Tan model by Springfield. With a wide assortment of different manufacturers to choose from, the modern shooter has more options than ever before. So many companies are utilizing new advances in machining to deliver precise and accurate weapons that can really stand out from the crowd. While they might perform well though, many of these options simply don’t offer much in the looks department. In this way, they might work just fine, but they look like the gun everyone else is using, which gives you little incentive to use it.
One of the best ways to overcome the monotony of a standard firearm is to actually use a special finish to enhance the look of the weapon. Realizing this, Springfield has begun offering FDE (flat dark earth)/Tan finishes on some of their factory weapons. These maintain the same performance specifications as the standard models but offer a more unique look. Of course, if you really want to stand out from the crowd, you can also explore some of the other options available exclusively from Omaha Outdoors.
Factory FDE/Tan Springfield Models
Realizing that people wanted something more than the standard black finish, Springfield began producing a variety of different options for their shooters. Among those options is the popular FDE/Tan finish. This provides a mix of that light tan color with a flat dark earth shade that offers a more distinct option for today’s discerning shooter. So far, this finish is offered on some of their most popular models, including the XD platform. When you select this option for one of those handguns, you get a FDE/Tan frame and the standard black slide, providing a good contrast and delivering consistent performance.
On the other hand, Springfield also manufactures the M1A in FDE/Tan, which offers you another option when you are taking those long-distance shots. This finish can actually be found on a variety of the M1A configurations, including the SOCOM, Scout Squad, and Standard rifles.
How About a Custom Finish Instead?
If you are looking for a simple FDE/Tan finish on your weapon, you might just want to stick to one of these factory models. On the other hand, you might want to switch things up a bit. Perhaps you want a handgun that features a Tan finish over the entire body of the weapon, covering the frame and the slide. Alternatively, you might want to explore some of the other options available online and try some other combinations. Regardless, you are in the right place thanks to our cerakoting services.
At Omaha Outdoors, we chose the cerakote as our go-to finish for a variety of reasons. To begin with, our certified technicians are highly skilled at using it, so they are able to create long-lasting and beautiful products. More than this, it hardens on the outside of your weapon to provide an extra-hard finish, giving polymer frames like the Springfield XD a more substantial feel. On top of that, this type of coat also provides invaluable corrosion resistance for those internal parts, including the slide if applied there.
When this coat is applied, the gun is functioned checked and visually inspected, ensuring that everything looks, feels, and works properly. From there, we get ready to ship out your new weapon with a 12-month workmanship warranty. This protects against any mistakes our technicians might make and ensures you have a unique finish that will really last for years to come.
