Gen2 vs gen3 trade opinions.

Discussion in 'General Glocking' started by 9mmmountaineer, Jan 23, 2013.

  1. Considering trading my Gen 3 19c for a Gen 2 19. Need opinions

    I love my finger grooves and rarely use my rail, but have been having some ejection problems and trader knows.

    Says the only reason he wants to trade is for a rail

    Which IF both in similar condition of good light signs of use, is worth more. OR what is the most y'all would pay for either

  2. The Gen 2 holds less value, unless it is a collectible.

    It's not irrational as long as it makes sense to you and you like what you are getting. Maybe you guys could meet up and each run a box through them and make a final decision.

    One thing is pretty much all the Gen 2s are as reliable as the sun rise later Gen 3s had some issues.

    I personaly prefer the gen 2 and would make that trade all day long as long as it wasn't totally beaten compared to yours

    I would keep the Gen 3 and just change the extractor... I like my grooves and rail.
