I currently own a Glock 21C (.45, compensated) and a Glock 26 (9mm). My wife and I share the G26 for carry, but she is carrying so often now it is time for a new CCW. I am looking at the G30 and am considering trading in the G21C to offset the cost, since I just got laid off. How can I find out how much the G21C is worth? I am just looking for a ballpark here to decide if it is even worth trading it in. Thanks!

you could also ask someone who has a bluebook but i dont think the prices they list really are that close sometimes or else were just plain getting ripped off
I think Redneck has best advice - go and check and compare - it should reflect something like the current market value.

Keep in mind a store will probably give you less than you could get if you sold it to an individual.
I have a 2002 edition of the blue book if ya know what % condition , I can give ya ballpark, but the gun sites will give ya market value.

1. All guns are always loaded.
2. Never let the muzzle cover anything you are not willing to destroy.
3. Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on the target.
4. Be sure of your target and what is beyond it.
Don't even think about trading it in. A Dealer will give you $200. If you are lucky. Either sell it outright or learn to dress around the gun.
Yeah I was shocked at what my LGS was offering me on a gun I was wanting to horse trade with. And this is a place I have done a LOT of business with. Definitely better selling it through other means by far. I mean I know they need to make their profit and all, but still...
Definitely better off selling it to an individual than trading it in.
