I have run across a Glock 17 for sale. It is a private sale so no taxes or background checks. The guy says its new in box comes with all the usual stuff and he is asking $525.

Good deal?

During my research so far Ive seen those going from $450 to $525 NIB. Seems to be right on par.

Like Tank Mechanic said, its an ok deal....not a good/great/spectacular deal. With a price of $525, it sounds like the seller is trying to make his money back.

I would look online and find the cheapest place to get a NIB Glock 17.
I would then offer to buy the guy's G17 for the cheapest NIB price that you found online. You could explain to the guy that you found them online NIB for "X" amount of dollars and offered to pay that for his. If he says no, no big deal. If you really want a G17, you can go elsewhere.
Or , you can pay him what he is asking for his G17.

You can get NIB for that including taxes.

If it is truly new and unfired, and factoring in that there is no sales tax or dealer transfer fee on a private, face to face sale, that is a decent if not bargain deal.

Offer him $450. That's what used Glocks go for around here. Sorry, but a used Glock is a used Glock, NIB or not. We're not talking P&R Smith and Wesson revolvers, Colts or generally anything with true collectible value. You kind of lose all of your resale value as soon as you drive it off the lot...

Believe it or not, I have a friend who was once told by a gunshop that they normally offer $350 for trade-in value on a Glock, any condition, vintage. Then they turnn around and sell it for $400-450, depending on condition.

There is no reason you can't make at least an initial offer of, say, $450-$475.

My local shop offers almost all used Glocks for $399 (no night sights). New price is $499 and they do sell via the internet. 34s and 35s command a slight premium used in my experience. I really shopped it around and got my G17 used, but in excellent condition for $360. I wouldn't jump on a used Glock for $525, no way.

At the past few gun shows in the Dallas-FtWorth area, four of the larger dealers have been selling NIB Glocks for under $450.

I bought my NIB Glock 26 for $440 two weks ago.

Seems high to me. I bought my G17 for $495 last year...put it at $510 after shipping to my FFL. In a private sale, you should definitely be able to get it cheaper

A shop about 50 minutes from me sells NIB Glocks for $475

And all of you guys talking about used....it clearly says NEW in the OP?

That price is rediculous.

Not a very good price, unless it has night sights.

They're $529 in my area brand new. $589 with night sights.

Price is too high.Offer him $400.NIB is around $500.

That price is rediculous.
If you were selling it, what would you ask for it ?

To put it another way:
If someone you knew had one of those they wanted to sell, and didn't know what to ask for it, what would you tell them?

No, he said NIB. It's been sold once already (to the individual the OP says is selling), therefore it is USED.

matrem,

If somebody wanted to turn a used Glock quickly around here, I'd suggest asking $400, $450 with night sights. I think my original $450 offer is high for a used, private sale Glock, but probably fair if it is truly NIB.

Maybe call it used in box?

I don't think its a very good deal at all, and I would pass. I have bought two G17's in the last year, one for $400, and the other for $450.

For 525 plus tax I bought a new G17 gen 4 w/ 3 mags.

That is a fair price. After shopping around in my area, I bought a new glock 17 for $520.

Not a penny over $450.

Not that great. Rack the slide back and look at the underside of the slide. Does it still have the factory glock copper lube on it?
