A friend of mine was really excited this weekend because he picked up his first ever Glock (G26). He went to a local Pawn Shop that advertises themselves as a "Glock Stocking Dealer". When my friend brought over the gun last night for me to check out, I noticed a couple of things and asked him about it: 1) The tupperware box had no label on the handle (white, red, etc.) 2) There was no documentation or factory fired shells 3) No cleaning rod or brush Basically it was his 26 with a spare mag. I asked him if the gun was new and he said that they sold it to him as new. I decided to sniff the mag well and sure enough, it smells like a brand new never fired gun (has that plastic polymer smell). There's no smiley on the barrel, etc. So I told him out of curiosity, he should call the shop back today and ask what happened to all the extras that should come with the pistol. So he called the shop back this afternoon and they told him that the pistol was a "factory direct" model and that when Glock sends them to stocking dealers, often times they don't come with all the "extras". So here's my question, because every time I'v ever purchased one, it's always come with the normal stuff in the box..... Is what the shop is telling him true or are they pulling his leg? The gun seems new, I've checked it top to bottom, inside and out for him and I don't see any signs of it having any wear. I advised him to call Glock and find out the manufacturing date and to ask them if the local shop is one of GLOCK's stocking dealers. Anyone have any thoughts?
