    Just wondering if there are any cons to getting the flat dark earth version. Does it get dirty easy? Harder to clean? ImageUploadedBySpringfield Forum1456349526.792529.jpg

    Welcome to the Springfield Firearms Forum...

    Don't own a FDE pistol, but I can't imagine it being harder to clean...while at the range it may be more obvious when it's dirty.

    Not harder to clean. The area around the muzzle shows the dirt and powder mess easy. But it's a great fun. I have the xd mod 2 in 40 ImageUploadedBySpringfield Forum1467665169.788497.jpg

    Does not get any dirtier than a black metal or stainless.
    Actually may show a little less dirt than stainless.

    Any weapon gets dirty. Just clean and maintain it!
