    Ok, I had a Glock 17, loved it but wanted a 19 instead so I sold it to fund a 19. Price aside, would it be worth $60 more than I got for my used 17 to pick up a brand new Gen 3 RTF2 with gills? I'm really jonesing for one. Is that a rare bird (or will it be one day)? Anyone know production numbers on those? This will be my primary range gun so I don't expect it to be kept pristine.

    I have both the G22 and G23 with the Gills. I would pay the extra $60 for the G19 with gills. Another way to look at it is that all G19's are hard to find right now. So one with Gills is a very good find right now.

    True JD, I found this one while looking for any 19. I'm going to do it unless someone here tells me they are seriously flawed (which I doubt). Can't wait to get it.

    Are you sure this is brand new?

    You know they stopped making these in 2009. That means it sat unfired for 3 years?

    That's what he says, its a small dealer. Is there a quick way to check? Every Glock I've owned has been used since I don't usually like to pay new prices. I guess I could tell from looking inside the slide, etc.. ???

    Oh, I did, that's my camera and picture! Now the hard part is going to be to actually shoot it instead of keeping it virgin. decisions, decisions. .... Ah, who am I kidding, I bought it to shoot.

    It looks very new! I'd pay the difference. (In fact I did!) :supergrin:

    It's got a Hogue, 'Handall' grip sleeve on it and is sitting, right here, on my desk as I type. :thumbsup:

    The fact that you sold a used glock and got a brand new one for only $60 more is a deal right there. The fact that it's a RTF2 with gills is a super sweet bonus.

    Thanks! I paid $620, I'll let you know if I want to sell it. I've been thinking about it because I seldom shoot it.

    Answers what I was about to ask. If the $60 is taking you from $490 to $550 then definitely yes. If it's taking you from $560 to $620 then you better really want it since $560 is steep for any Glock in the first place

    James Dean is right...

    $60 is a few boxes of ammo
