Good price for used glock at gun store?


February 12, 2004, 08:52 AM
My wife and I went to the gun store yesterday, looking to buy our first pistol together. I'm dead set on the Glock 19 for its simplicity and low recoil. I originally wanted a new one but they cost $600 (he was going down when I talked to him more) Then I saw a used one for $395 that looked to be in excellent shape. It still had copper on the rails, whatever that means. It comes with a standard cap mag and a case. Would I be stupid to pass this one up? With the money I save we would get more rounds to practice with. BTW I already have 3 hi-cap mags for it. Any suggestions or advise?

If you're lucky, you can stumble across factory-reconditioned Glocks, (perhaps trade-ins from police departments) that sell in the $375 - $450 range. Good guns.

I bought a Glock 17 like that. I was pleased with it, and later sold it for more than I paid.

$600 for a G19 is robbery. The best gunshop price I've seen here for a new G19 is $489. I bought my G19 used but practically unshot, it still had the copper lube from the Glock factory in it. It was a great buy and is a great pistol.

Take a look at the barrel hood and the barrel. If there is little to no wear on them and the copper lube is still on the inside edges of the slide, then the pistol was probably never or barely shot (copper lube can be put on by the gunshop too so look at the barrel. Take the slide off and barrel out, it is very simple, takes two seconds. Ask the shop to do it for you maybe). You might also want to check the serial number under the dust cover, some production lots made between Sept. 2001 and May 2002 had some problems with the frame and could possibly break at one of the rear rails...gun would still function but you don't want that. Glock has an unofficial recall for it. Most of these serial numbers begin with E and then have a lower letter as the second in the series. My G19 begins with EYL and is not effected, since Y is late and mine was made after Glock corrected this. These "effected" guns were around a lot but time is passing and its becoming water under the bridge. Just something to look for. I'd definately buy a used G19 in good condition over a new one if the price difference is significant...they are great guns and will run for a long time. Good luck.

Typically here in central DixieLand, prices on NIB Glock's
of any description vary greatly. A G-19 normally runs
between $479-509, depending of where you choose
to purchase? I've seen factory refurb's starting as
Walt said, at $375.

SOG's catalog has refurbed G19s for 375 bones and used G22s for 374....lowest Glock they have is 350 for a G17

you could acquire any of these with a transfer fee........

Yeah... where ever you saw the G19 for $600, I'd NEVER buy from that guy. EVER! The G30s, G36s are a bit more expensive but even then, only $525 to $550. I don't think I've ever seen a brand new stock G17/19/22/23 for more than $525 around here.

I've seen many, many used Glocks in basically brand new condition for $425 but they usually run between $380 and $450. New ones about $480 to $500... again, for the 17/19/22/23 models.

my local store sells brand new .45, 9mm, and .40 caliber Glocks for $459 with 2 mags, case, manuel, etc. sounds like a decent deal.

I hope nobody snatched it up in the 6+ years this thread has been dead.;)

This thread was time sensitive and that time has passed
