    Looking to pick up a G26 for concealed carry. I've milled around the idea about selling my G19, but decided against it as I love to take it to the range. My question is, what are some recommendations for trying to find one for a decent price? Around here, brand new ones in gen3 are going for $550-$600 !!!! I flat out refuse to pay that. I'm looking for a gen3, either slightly used or full on used for around $425-$475 TOPS !! Thanks...

    Found mine about a month ago, a used gen 3 26, with 2 magazines w/grip extensions, original case, grip plug, holster and grip tape for $429 + tax. Looked to be in great shape, shoots great and thought it was a pretty good deal.

    Glockstore.com sells the Gen 3 G26 brand new for $499. IMHO, worth the extra $24 to get one brand new. Was there two weeks ago and they had them in stock

    I got you about brand new, I just can't pony up the $500+ for a new one right now. Used is definitely more in my price range. I even thought about LE trade-in's but I'm not a LEO or military...sux...

    I got mine off gunbroker a few years ago for $419. After shipping and FFL, $470.

    Lightly used G26 I would pay no more than $450 for. Great choice btw.

    Do you have a local firearms forum? I picked my OD 26 back in Jan for $500, like new via my local forum.

    I bought a 2.5 Gen G-26 last month for $525 (Private sale). New Meprolites, a galco ankle glove holster, a Bianchi Black widow holster, and I think the obligatory Uncle Mikes Kydex holster.

    Cleaned it /shoot it/carry it, the meprolites and holsters sweetened the deal.

    You all found great deals..! Trust me, I'm looking, it's so hard finding them for an affordable price in my area, and as far as sites like gunbroker or gunsamerica, their prices when you add in shipping and FFL fees are darn near close to what local gun stores are charging...

    I have been looking for about 2 months now.
    It would seem with the Military/ LEO discount I can do better buy a new one. The few I have seen were for a premium price and one in particular looked like I could grow potatoes in it and the seller couldn't get it apart.
    I think if you can swing it you may wanna get a new one instead.

    Just sold my Gen 3 G-26 on the Nebraska Firearms Owners Association website last weekend, it was barely used. Look at local associations etc. I sold it for $440.00 with two Pierce +2 mag extensions.

    The G-26 is my favorite pistol.

    Gunbroker is a really good option but can sometimes take time and patience to find a good deal.

    I picked up a used G26 a few years ago for $425, traded it for my G19 not too long ago. But I miss it, I'm gonna be on the lookout for a new "used" one.
