    Picked up a used G17.5 from my LGS for $429 with only 1 mag and all accessories and case.

    Appears to be in very good condition. Got it home and cleaned it up real good. And took to the range for a quick function test. 50 flawless rounds of S&B 115gr.

    Is $429 a good deal? Or have I been sniffing too much of my wife’s nail polish remover?

    Also 1 thing. When the striker is not cocked, I hear a forward and rearward rattle of the striker in its channel, is this normal? I can’t replicate this anomaly in my G19X.

    $429 is a good price if it came with three mags. Still an okay price with one mag - so no, you didn't get screwed.

    Good catch! That's a weird looking mag catch...

    Everybody on the internet can get them for $385, new with three mags and night sights.

    In the real world, you got a good deal.

    $285 before lunch, but you need to have the right code and prove that your house is paid off.

    In 6 months or 6 years, you won't remember or care what you paid for it. I think I own 3 G17's. I can't even remember what year I bought them, much less what I paid for them.

    I would absolutely LOVE to know what brand it is. Because it’s amazing. I want to find out so I can get another for my G19X. It was on there when I got it. And the store didn’t know what kind it was.

    Just so you remember where and who you asked this question.
    Yes, you got screwed.

    Enjoy your new purchase. :cheers:

    Paying $1000+ for a Gen 5 Glock here in CA is what I call getting screwed. I would drop dead of happiness if I could score it for what you paid for it.

    Why are Glocks so much higher in California? I’ve seen that a lot.

    Seems like a decent price for a Gen 5. Have fun shooting it!

    I'm pretty sure California only allows the gen 3 for legal sale so they have created a black market for otherwise legal gun owners to obtain other glocks.
