    None of your damn business!!
    Refurbs are excellent weapons.

    I have a G22 also. I sold my G23 it was just to small a weapon for the .40 in my opinion. The G23 I got rid of was not very accurate. All of my other Glocks (21, 17, 19, 30, 22) are very accurate. I do not know what the deal was with that particular G23 as far as accuracy went:dunno:. My G22 has a much more solid feel to me. By the way my G22 is a second generation. It is very accurate.

    Regards

    Sounds kinda like my story. I had a G23 and sold it a few years ago. Now I'm back in the fold with a G17 and a G27, with a G26 on the way!
    Congrats.

    I was pretty sure that when I got rid of the last of my Glocks a few years ago I was going to stick with my 1911's and J frames.

    I ended up buying a G17 to have a 9 mm and next thing I know I have a G30, G21 and that G17.

    I do not like the grip angle all that well, but they work.

    Oh, I still have my 1911's, but the G30 took the place of the J frame. Love that .45 ACP.

    Yeah it was a 2nd gen and I had it for like 10+ years and figured I'd try something different. :whistling: I bought a S&W 5906 ,since I always wanted one since they were new back when I was just out of high school:supergrin:
    The 2nd gen frame on my 23 squirmed in my hand more than I liked but it was better with teh Hogue on it but that made it bulkier.

    Well after shooting 3rd gen G17's and G22 a bunch for school , and other training, I really wanted a fullsize 3rd gen.

    The fullsize 3rd gen fingergroves fit me better than the G19/23 ones and I figured the G22 gave me the most flexibility for different barrels and calibers.:supergrin: plus as one of the non-ccw states :steamed: I don't have to worry about the size for a carry gun, hopefully that will change, and give me an excuse for a new gun:whistling:

    Gotta like a lifetime warranty even if I don't need it:supergrin:

    My cam doesn't take good night sight pics , but they look really good in person.

    I am thinking they replaced the frame because it looks and feels like new, not worn like a lot of former police guns I've handled. I'm loving it ,can't wait to get to the range.
