What a steal

Well, I stopped by a local gun/pawn shop that I had heard had large quantities of police trade-in handguns, including Glock 17/19/22/23 etc. I didn't have much in the way of expectations, but man was I surprised!
I told them I was looking for a second Glock 23, preferably with night sights, so they brought out six Glock 23's in the original boxes...
Long story short, they opened a box which seemed to contain a brand new Gen 3 Glock 23. Only one of the magazines had been used, and the gun couldn't have had more than 50 shots fired total, though I'd wager they only fired a max of 13 or 14 rounds since only one mag was used. The entire gun was flawless, exactly as a NIB would be. The envelope which contains the owner's manual hadn't even been opened yet!
They sold me what seemed to be a brand new Glock 23 with Trijicon Bright & Tough Night Sights and three mags, only one of which had been used, for $369. So basically, I got a brand new Generation 3 Glock 23 for $369. (I also purchased four extra police trade-in mags for training for $60 total! You'll notice those mags all say "LE/Government Use Only.")
These pictures were taken after I put just under 500 (flawless) rounds of Remington UMC 180gr and Federal HST 180gr through it; you'll notice it's a bit dirty around the muzzle.

I wish I had a shop around here like that place.

I was in Phoenix a few weeks ago on business and remember passing that shop. I almost stopped in just to look around, but was running short on time and didn't.

i owned a glock in 40 the week the mini arrived. yup, i owned it for all of 14 hours.
only glock I've ever owned though i often shoot IDPA's with a friends 23/9 i think it is.
glock is a great tool and if they take it from me as evidence i have lost nothing of value.
dollar value that is. its SD value is well proven
lot of words but to say, that condition at that price...id own it also.
you got a great deal, enjoy.
