    A working brand name gun always has good value.

    I wouldn't hesitate to buy a Gen 2 for a good price. It's still good.

    I'd say yes if they can be found for a better price than Gen 3. The variations aren't that significant for some people with the rail being the one main thing missing. Otherwise aftermarket parts can make it fresh again.

    I've not seen a Gen2 for sale in my area for a long time. I would jump on a gen 2 in a 19 or 23 in an instant.

    I would love to find a nice Gen2 G17 to go with my Gen2 G19 and Gen2 G21. :)

    Gen 2 is my favorite Glock.
    That is what I look for when buying a Glock as long as it is priced right.

    I think there is definitely still a demand for the Gen 2 pistols. My Gen 2 G23 is by far my favorite and has given me thousands of trouble free rounds. Glock Perfection.
     
  10. Ive got a 17 (never fired. like new in the box), 22 and a 27. Im not parting with any of them.

    I see gen 2 prices cost as much as brand new gen 3 and they still fly off the shelf.

    Same here. I have been looking for a Glock 19 that is a Gen 2 gun. I like my 19 now, but the lack of finger grooves makes the Gen 2 fit my hand better. This is not the case with the Gen 3 guns.

    I in fact like the Gen2 better than the Gen4 and Gen3 but the 3 is not so bad. I just bought a Gen2 G23 for $360 and it is in good shape. I just wish the Gen2 had the front mounting rails. Hell I would buy up a Gen 1 if I found one in good shape.

    Since I put a Hogue wrap around grips on my Glocks anyway...I'd buy a nice, well kept Gen 2 all day long.

    Having owned a gen 2 21/22 and still own a 19 and 23, i don't really see the fascination with them. Before the mad rush, gen 2 22/23 were being offered by companies like SOG and JG for about $350.

    I would gladly trade my EDC Gen 2 23 for a gen 3 if I could find someone local

    I am looking at a Gen2 G23 right now, I own a Gen 3 G19. But am wanting to try the 40cal out.

    I've been carrying my Gen-2 19 for 20 years and it's still my favorite GLOCK...and I've lost count as to how many I now own.

    I've had Gen 3 22/27 for several years but all that time wanted a 23 to go with them. I could never afford one when they were available in my area.

    I found a Gen 2 23 the last week in December for $389. Shoots as good as my other two. The oddest thing for me was the "Tupperware" type case they used to come in. Oh yeah... and the magazines. They are the old style that are not fully metal lined. I found a couple of new G23 mags and they work fine.

    And Whittaker's pays the tax on used guns... :supergrin:
     
  19. You will still see Gen 2s hit the market as the last of them get traded out of LE agencies. That was how I picked up mine as my department traded to Gen 4s.

    It's the non-finger grooved front strap that is best reason for liking the Gen 2s.

    I always keep my eye out for them. Put it to you this way, if I go to the store to buy a particular pistol and I see a good condition G17 Gen 2 in the used case, I'm getting it even if that means I might skip what I originally went for. I love em. Late production Gen 2 G17 is the best G17 IMO.
