    I have a friend who is selling a Glock 17 gen 1. He has put less then 500 rounds in it and is the original owner. he is ex army and cleans his firearms like it is his job. He is asking $500 for it, which i felt like was way to high. i realize Gen 1 is harder to find and will be a collectors item someday however i dont feel today is that day. What do you guys think is a good price for this weapon?
    thanks for the help

    you will probably get more replies in the Glock Collector's Club area. but yes that seems too high.

    If it's in that good a shape with that low a round count I'd gladly pay that much for it.

    but ONLY if it has the original plastic tupperware case and 2 mags. Without they have sold for as low as $385 but have fetched $500. With the case two weeks ago one sold for $550 in the Cbus area. i'd go max 450 without case.

    I do not have one for sale I was stating what I have seen for prices on good condition Gen 1 G 17's.
    I don't know if you are aware of the Serial Number project,much information in it,more that just serial numbers.

    If it is in great condition I could see 500 easily for it also.

    If it has all the goodies that is a fair price. Man should get a little extra for taking good care of it IMHO.

    If you really want one, you likely cant find another one that you know the true round count on and know that it has been well kept.

    Just do it. Glock isn't making any more of them in Gen1. If you like the feel of the Gen1 grip, there is no substitute.
