Seller's regret stinks. Back in 2003 I had to sell my Glock 17 and 26 due to financial reasons. I kept the 19, couldn't part with that one. Back in 2006 I got rid of a 36 that I was having trouble with. At the time any 36 that I handled, the slide would jump over the slide lock every 6 or 7 racks.
Well, this past Feb I aquired a brand new 36. No problems with this one. I put on some new Glock night sights and she has ran fine for 400+ rounds. I missed carrying such a slim little .45 ACP.
Now, last week a guy that I work with asked me if there was anyone I knew who wanted to buy his 17. Hmmmmmm? How much are you asking? $150....WHAT? SOLD! Granted, it is a beat up 2nd gen and the one I sold was a beautiful 3rd. But for $150? I couldn't pass it up. I took out the old school NY1 trigger (leaf spring, instead of coil) and put in a stock trigger spring. She ran 350 rounds flawless over 2 sessions. I'm gonna give her all new springs, because she is a little old and beat up. I believe it came out in 94, because it has the 90 deg cut in the ejection port.
I can carry it all day with no problems in a Milt Sparks SS II.
Now I have to get a 26.
I know you guys like pics, but the only PC I have access to is at work right now. It wouldn't look good if pics of my Glocks were uploaded. LOL.

It is better to have your gun and not need it, than to need it and not have it!
You cannot choose the conditions for a gunfight, so train in all conditions!

Did you know that you can send it back to Glock and they will do an inspection and replace those things that are worn for free?
Ignorance is a long way from stupid, but left unchecked, can get there real fast.
You got that for a steal for $150!!!!!
I just bought a 1991 vintage G17 with 4 magazines for $400. It was pretty much like new and I like 2 gens just fine. Guy at Glock that went over it said that it looked like it probably had less then a box shot through it.
Why Ike, whatever do you mean? Maybe poker's just not your game Ike. I know! Let's have a spelling contest!
Geez....I am a sucker for 2nd Gen Glocks myself. Congrats on a great weapon that will serve you well!!!
no way you could pass that up for $150.00...great deal
Good deal. Congrats!

My Glock 19 affectionately known to me as Old#1 bought in 1994 with the slide refinished in 2010.
As Ret said look for the police coming to your door because what you did was steal that Glock you just aquired. Great find.
I had Robar refinish my G-19 with a 1 week turn around.

Awesome deal. I'd jump on that one too if I had the chance. Nice Glock there Old School. I like Rogard and NP3 finish that Robar has.

I amost sold my G26 once. I had sellers remorse before the sale! So I kept it! And then I got a G17 to keep it company.
