    Well its not blued so dont blue it...LOL It has Tenifer treatmentin the metal. The "bluing" is actually just a black powder coat. Send it to Glock and they will redo it for about 40.00. It wont be any less protected if the black is worn, if you just wanna leave it.

    Other wise changing out the springs and such should make it perfectly fine....most police guns are carried a lot shot a little.

    I am up to 3 police trade in handguns, 1 of them being a Glock.

    Most of them run just fine. They tend to have a lot more external wear than internal tear.

    Thumbs up

    Thanks for the reassurance on this piece all, not concerned about cosmetics just hoping that glock reliability when needed is there. I have heard more info that PD trade ins are shot little and just have alot of holster wear from hours on the job. Other sites told me that PD trade ins are beat up and not cared for at all by their carrier. I f I were a LEO my pistol would be overly cared for since it's there to save my life. Just MHO. I bought it and shoot it, clean it up and decide to EDC it or my G27. Just love my sons G23, it just feel like it belongs in my hand!

    I have one PD trade in and it had holster wear, but the inside looked new. I was going to replace all the springs, but could find any wear on them. I started to ask around and I was told PD's replace the springs before they are put on the market for liability reasons. From the one example I have, I would have to say that is true. Look it over, the price is right in my book.

    Thanks Kid, I was excited when I won the bid price! I would have got one eventually at a show or pawn shop. My son and I shot togeather this past week,his G23 and my G27. Not to knock the G27,small accurate but grip is important,even w/pearce it dose'nt feel as good as the 23. I noticed drawing from iwb holster that I have a better feeling grabbing the G23's slightly larger grip,just feels safer to me. G23 will conceal well and I don't think twice about possibly printing as much as i used to,after all it's legally concealed.

    I jumped on some police trade in's once and got some real good deals. Actually 2 of them were brand new guns that had just been sent to the armory but had never been issued to any officers!! WooHoo!! I got some M22's and M23's and they sold real fast. I ended up keeping one of the new M22's for myself because it had the department logo engraved into the slide. Brand new gun for used price!!!!
    It's not the destination, it's the journey.

    Why would you go and repalce all that??

    Spring maybe, all the rest , not so much.

    You could have bought a new one for a couple bucks more than what you will have into that one , once you replace things that shouldn't need replacing.

    That gun has history[scratches & wear marks] and character. Don't take that away!!

    My ex-wife works for a local sheriffs dept. and I was able to get two G22's for 285$ each. One was carried alot, the cheap plastic sights were dented and deformed , otherwise it shot good. The second one was a jail gun that was hardly used, no holster wear or much wear on the barrel. Both shot the same and were a great deal. I sold them later for a profit when I became a XDm convert.

    I wouldn't replace anything unless it absolutely needed to be replaced.
    You got a good deal on a used firearm so if you are going to automatically sink unnecessary "aftermarket money" into it then you should have just purchased a new one.

    And I sure would not be concerned about cosmetic "holster wear" because all handguns that are daily carried eventually show surface wear unless they are industrial hard chromed.
