    If I'm NOT careful, I may learn something here. What am I missing?

    1) Iberia-40
    2) Hi Point JC-40 smooth slide
    3) Hi Point JC-40 textured slide
    4) Hi Point JCP-40 textured slide
    5) Hi Point JCP-40 Camo smooth slide (1998-1999)
    6) Hi Point JCP Camo textured

    No need to worry about learning anything from me here. Just an observation - I think the JC is a nicer looking gun. Just my .02

    Good possibility there's a JC Chrome & a JCP Chrome. And at least one JCP Desert Tan prototype somewhere.

    Keep looking.
  4. There is a chrome JC, not sure about a chrome JCP. My contact at MKS said the prototype is news to him but probably is in the hands of someone higher up. I found that Desert Tan photo from the year the Camo green came out and it's killing me to get my hands on it! I would even trade you my limited Zombie dipped MKS that's as rare as possibly 1 of 7 that were done for a Knob Creek Zombie giveaway.

    The hunt continues?

    It was never released to the public that we know. I believe they ran both colors at the show and decided on the OD Green. Still, that means there were some "Tan" made but as I said, you will probably never see one for sale unless it was from someone who is selling it who had access to the prototypes.

    with as many sand colored pistols out today

    it should be a 'no brainer' for them to release that variant.

    How hard is it to change out spray paint? :rolleyes:
