    Is there a gun finding service, site or person?? Wanting specific Glock with Gills

    There has to be a service, site or person that helps with a hard to find gun. Anybody know of one? Looking for a Glock 19 AND a 23 RTF with gills on slide.... I am willing to pay for help in finding one. I make 4 posts daily to Armslist and also have ads on other sites It is driving me crazy and been over 2 weeks.

    Thanks in advanced

    Maybe we can all help each other. Check with Frontline Defense in Zebulon, NC. I took my class from him and he is your guy.

    Hope it helps..

    not all RTF Glocks had the gills. Pretty sure only the full size Glocks had the gills...ie 17/22/31, but not 100% sure.

    no 19's or 23's on GB, sorry.

    What would you think would be reasonable for someone like this to charge for the service? Finder's fee? Percentage? Considering what's on your want list could be found at all? Those models saw short production runs. The RTF a bit longer than the slides with "gills". Just a bit of advice here, and I may be off base (don't know exactly yet).....but you may have better luck finding the parts to put them together than finding the whole pistol(s). RTF frame, slide with gills......follow me? Glock armorer, licensed dealer....etc. Mix and match may be the way to go. I'm just sayin' may be more likely to see your dreams fulfilled. I think outside the box a lot actually. Most of that comes from challenges, meeting them head on, and realizing there's plenty of ways to beat an enemy with a lot less work and risk involved. I can also work with a team if so inclined and motivated. I've lost a few contacts over the years, and some of the businesses have gone under. Some of those took LE trade in Glocks, some refurbished them. I don't necessarily pursue the avenues I once did not too long ago either. Might say the market and me were on par at one time and I kept on top of things like the daily news. I absolutely knew where everything was and where to find it because I networked with individuals and businesses. That took a vast amount of my free time, but like I said....I liked the challenge. Now it seems like things change a bit faster in this dog-eat-dog world (country). People take advantage of others when given the opportunity by and large. Used to be different, and I remember the days. Before the days I remember things were even better. History of America, and the downward spiral to weakness. Our current president would be president now if we would have all made a team effort. The upcoming election and candidates are even more of a joke than last time around, the tactics have evolved immensely over the past four rotten years.
    Forgive me. I got off on a tangent here. I tend to do that now and then when typing since I can see every word.
    I've been know to write volumes here on one simple subject that seeks a simple answer. I do know that sometimes I'll hit home with a few folks who read the columns, and hopefully that will incite some hope and common sense back into our country and fellow citizen. I am not sure. anyway.........................I am willing to help you in your quest (free of charge). I will look into your want list as time allows, and that time basically means when I don't feel suppressed by the government, or pressured by the IRS, my work schedule, and everything else (I am not under a doctor's care and do not have any prescription medications to assist me with coping). LOL! Drop me a line and we can work on this.

    I have a G22 RTF 2 with the gills.


    I know that the G19s and the G23s have been made with and without the gills. I wish I would have bought one also.
    Stop whining and go do something that makes a difference!
    If you think that I may be talking to you, then I am.

    thanks for the correction. Never liked the RTF frame and thought the gills looked silly. Now they will probably be collector's items and be worth twice what you paid for the gun in a few years. I picked up a few OD green Glocks when they were discontinued for a deep discount. Now they are selling for more than a new Glock.

    I see the Easter thread didn't last long. Hate to offend our Muslim constituency.

    Enter the gun you are looking for in the search box...it scans various gun forums for sale ads. I use it to track down hard to find models like say a Beretta 92G Elite II

    Must be tough to find..
    Glock 23 RTF gills - only found your posts on Armslist and one sold on Calguns
    Glock 19 RTF gills - same thing.
