    My current dilemma.

    Question for you guys: Say there's two gun stores that has the gun you're looking for.

    1.) One store has it $100 cheaper, but it's bone stock.
    2.) Other store has it at full price, but has all the extras you want...such as night sights, custom connecters, trigger spring etc.

    Which one would you go for and why?

    Thanks.

    Basically, there's a Glock 23 on sale at one store and another one has it at full price in OD Green, extended slide release, 3.5lb connector, NY1 spring, etc. I have to choose one.

    Choice 2.
    When I got my G26, I added night sights, extended slide release, and a NY1 trigger... ran me close to $100 for parts and labor. May as well get it that way if that's what you're going to do to it. If you can't swing the extra c note right now, put half down and pick it up in 30 days.

    Thanks strat. You've made my decision.

    By the way, here's my American Standard Fender '89.

    If you're talking about Turners and the Glock on sale I'd rather pay more for the gun that comes with all the extras.

    Yeah option two is the way to go because thats what you'll end up paying, if not more. Nice strat. I have one of the same color, but its a cheap squier i bought off a friend (after stupidly selling my Jagstang). Oh, and mine is absolutely garbage to:)

    It would depend on whether you really want the extras and how much they would cost and how difficult they would be to add later.

    I think Colt had it right in 1911. They installed the mosst useful accessories on the assembly line.

    See what the extras cost. Is it worth it? I have passed on higher priced pistols that came with an overpriced/overvalued accessory kit.

    I'd go with option two because I love night sights and all of the bells and whistles. :)

    Nice stratocaster. I used to have one a lot like it. I have an Ibanez RG-320dx now, but that dang locking tremolo leaves a lot to be desired. Frankly, I miss the hardtail on my strat.

    What extras are we talking about? If it's say an XD where the extras include worthless plastic holsters I don't want or use, heck yeah give me the same gun for $100 less minus the crud.

    Now if the extras are night sights, magazines, etc. I want the extras.
