    Hi, I'm a new guy here.

    Any of you guys like to buy old used beater Glocks?

    My dealer always seems to have a few. I was thinking about getting one at some point. Is there anything I need to be wary of when buying a used one?

    Oh, also I'm thinking a 2nd gen or 3rd gen gun, not 1st gen.

    I like to beat them up myself, but if you can get a really good deal on one, change the springs and you are golden.

    Welcome to GT, first and foremost!

    Second, what part of FL are you in?

    Also, IF he has a Glock 34, and will ship to an FFL I may be interested.

    Rarely have I ever seen a beat to heck Glock for less than the Individual Officer Sales Program discount price ($398) in my area.
    I guess you could say I have a few "beater" Glocks, but they're all mostly brand new.

    Thanks for the welcome guys. I'm in Ocoee, west of Orlando. If I see a 34 I'll let you know.

    How do you get a new spring? I guess my dealer might have some, otherwise, do you order them directly from Glock?

    used beat up glocks are great, they will instill a ton of confidence in glock, and as you beat the hell out of one you will begin to understand just how tough these things are....

    If you send your well used Glock to Glock they will go through it and replace anything that needs replacing for free.

    I know right where ocoee is. I spent the last 2 years (up until August, in Orlando, right by the bridge with Orlando on the side. Exit 78 off I4 by millenia mall. Granted, I lived on the universal side.

    Shame you didn't join when I was still in Orlando! Oh, and if you are in Orlando, on OBT is Reig's Gun Shop (orlandogunshop.com , I4 exit East, past Millenia Mall to Orange Blossom Trail, Turn right go maybe 0.25 miles its on your right) and they are a glock certified store/armorer and Bob (owner) and Tim (short retired Marine/Philipino) are both great to deal with and very helpful!
