    So, at an estate auction this week I found myself in a bad location to bid. I couldn't see what they were holding - all I heard was brand new Glock 22 in the box.

    So, I bid... and the bidding got up to $600 and I won.

    Not the most stellar price in the world, I thought, but they're tough to come by these days and I was looking for a new Glock. Well, really I was planning on getting a 19 - but that's besides the point.

    It was freezing, wind blowing - and I was one of the suckers stuck where the wind was blowing 20mph non-stop.

    Nonetheless, I win this gun. As I make my way to retrieve it I see the telltale tupperware container. Ahh man, I thought - a guy before me had just bought a 23 from this same estate and it was Gen4.

    Sure enough, it appears to be brand new - but it's a Gen2. Meaning no light rail and no finger grooves.

    This estate auction had over 100 guns so it's not real surprising that it was new. He had no .40 or .380 ammo but yet had about 20 guns in that caliber - the majority of which appeared to be new.

    Anyway, I sank $600 into this thing thinking it was something it's not. I've dug into the search feature and found not a lot of useful information. In large part because 4 months ago a new Glock wasn't hardly going for $500 and now you're hard pressed to find them at LGSs for $600.

    Any thoughts on my chances of getting my money back out of this thing - and what the better venue might be to sell it?

    It's not right to post a thread about a glock without pictures to accompany - hah - so here are a couple:

    I'd say you made out pretty great! I wish all my glocks were gen2. The finger grooves on the gen3s are a real pita so much so I sanded them off my g23 daily carry. Gen2 has the perfect grip, just grab and go, no grooves to interfere with your grip. As for the rail I've never attatched anything to mine, the only purpose they could ever serve me is cosmetic. Light or laser on the rail has it's pluses and minuses, for me the negatives trump the benefits. Sure it gives you a hand free, but at the same time iwb holstering is severely limited, lights and lasers work two ways, if you can see your target with them they can see you too. /rambling. You should have absolutely no trouble at all moving that BEAUTIFUL g22 and have the potential to make a nice penny on top of what you paid.

    What letters does the serial number start with? I might be interested if it's the right series.
