    First and Second Gen P-32 grip/finish options (lots of pics)

    Ever wonder at the myriad of grip color and finish options available from the Kel-Tec factory for the P-32? If so, this thread should help clarify the different options that were available on the First Generation P-32 (1G) and the current-production Second Generation (2G) pistols.

    First Generation P-32s were produced from 1999-2005, with the Second Generation taking over mid 2005-present. Specs were/are as follows:

    Factory Technical Specifications P-32 (First and Second Generation)
    Caliber: .32 AUTO
    Weight unloaded. 6.6 oz.
    Loaded magazine 2.8 oz.
    Length 5.1"
    Height 3.5"
    Width 0.75"
    Barrel Length 2.7"
    Sight radius 3.8"
    Muzzle energy max 200ftlbs
    Capacity 7+1 rounds
    Trigger pull 5 lbs

    The 1G pistols were available in three different finishes, which were carried over to the 2G pistols as well:

    -Blued (slide looks matte black with an unfinished silver barrel)
    -Parkerized (slide is dark gray with a charcoal black barrel)
    -Hard Chrome (slide and barrel have a matte silver finish)

    The 1G had no less than seven different grip colors! Here they are:

    -Black (standard)
    -Gray (standard)
    -Olive Green (standard)
    -Ivory
    -Light Blue (appeared Aqua)
    -Dark Blue (appeared Royal Blue)
    -Purple

    In the last few years of 1G production, the last four colors were dropped.

    The 2G kept the three standard colors, and added one more in 2008:

    -Black
    -Gray
    -Olive Green
    -Navy Blue

    Below are some pics of various 1G and 2G pistols with different color grips and finish options. I couldn't find a decent pic of the Purple grip, so I included a pic of a piece one sent as a sample. If someone has an actual pic (not a Photoshopped one) of a P-32 in Purple, send me a PM and I will post it. Pics were taken from members of various forums (where credited) or online auctions (uncredited). Sorry if I stole your pic and didn't ask, but it is for a good cause!
